Milwaukee – even in In a season that ended in disappointment, Brewers shortstop Willie Adams kept up his tradition of gratitude. You just need to know the code.

Adames’ 160,000 Instagram followers may have noticed that most of his social media posts carry the hashtag #NoBookbag. But do you know what that means? Bookbag is a direct translation of the Spanish word bulto, but to Dominicans the word usually means pretentious or show off. It’s like all talk, no substance. No flash to follow.

Thus, Adamus’ mantra became the opposite.

Adams has put it at the end of his social media posts since 2013, when he was 17 in the Dominican Summer League. Year-old Tigers rookie. It’s his way, even when he’s posting photos with former teammate Carlos Gomez on a private jet or sitting in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, to remain humble and forever grateful for what he has.

“When you get to this level, sometimes things change,” Adams said last year in a statement from the MLB Players Association. Said in the video commentary. “You get a new car, you get a big house. Sometimes it affects your head.”

Adames decides he Not letting it get to his head, he wants his message to reach others.

“God gave me this opportunity,” he said. “I have to give it to someone else.”

2022 season is a missed opportunity for Brewers, although Adam Stewart played well, earning club MVP honors for the second straight year after setting career highs with 31 homers and 98 RBIs. As a shortstop, he broke the 40-year-old Brewers home run record held by Robin Yount, but Adames described his season as “weird,” noting that his On-base percentage has improved while batting average has plummeted (. 285 in 99 games in 2021) compared to . 238 in 2022 in a trade from Tampa Bay to Milwaukee.

Batting average is no longer considered a key metric in baseball, but Adames still sees it as an area he can improve . Ditto His on-base percentage slipped to .298.

“Just more consistent,” Adams says of his 2023 goals when said. It’s kind of weird. Obviously, I’m looking to be more consistent next year and try to undo those long-term slumps and get better. “

He’s been busy since the end of the season, with Houston’s World Series and Boston’s Pedro But Adames heading into the winter plans to spend most of the offseason with Phoenix infielder Luis Urías, rather than splitting his time between Miami and the Dominican Republic as he has done in past years. Because it will allow Adames to work out at the Brewers training facility year-round.

Also has business to deal with this winter. Adames James is one of a number of Milwaukee core players who are eligible for arbitration and has two more years of club control before he becomes a free agent in the 2024-25 offseason. Together, Adams is an obvious candidate for an extension — a topic he said he had discussed with David Stearns before Stearns resigned as president of baseball operations.
“We’ve had conversations about it and I’ve let them know that I obviously want to stay,” Adams said. “I love it here. I just need to do my job and let my agent handle it. “

Adams has played for three organizations in his career — the Tigers, then the Rays and the Brewers. He doesn’t mind Milwaukee being his last stop.

“I’m always open to hearing what they have to say , if it’s beneficial to both parties, I’m open to it,” he said. “I let my agent handle it. I love it here, I feel good here, I feel comfortable here and I hope I can stay here for the rest of my career. But at the end of the day, they have to put everything together and see if we can work it out. Hopefully we can, and we can make it happen. But I’m always willing to hear their opinion. “
