MARYVALE, Ariz. - The Milwaukee Brewers are just one week from their opening game at Miller Park, but they have some questions to answer before reaching town.

Today, the Brewers will try to answer some of those question as they face the Oakland A's in spring training action.

Coverage starts on Newsradio 620 WTMJ at 2:55 p.m. with Bob Uecker and Joe Block calling the game.

One question: Will Mark Rogers get back to end-of-2012 form, when he was dominating at his best?  And if so, when?

He didn't seem to give much on that subject in two innings in a win over the Colorado Rockies Sunday.

A second question: Will Khris Davis replicate his big power numbers of spring training when games start to count?

Rant Sports makes that query.

Another question, brought up by Bleacher Report: When will the Brewers finally get a gold glove on their defense?

The Brewers haven't earned a Gold Glove since 1982...to match the World Series drought.
