    The Brewers traded Josh Hader out of no where that could be an indicator of a rebuild or a retool either way the Brewers can flip their two best pitchers for a pretty massive haul from the Dodgers. They get two young stars in Gavin Lux and Dustin May, The Dodgers number one prospect in Diego Cartaya, a very nice strike out pitching prospect in Carlos Duran, and to add on the trade Chris Taylor which would have to be included to make it work financially. The Dodgers add two phenomenal pitchers to increase their World Series odds significantly.

      The Brewers aren’t rebuilding.

      And if they were, they could get a heck of a lot more than this.

      • Rhys Hoskins

        The brewers WILL most likely need to rebuild sometime after 2023 or 2024.

        • M C

          No they won’t.

          It is this organization’s goal to avoid rebuilds and remain competitve throughout. That’s why they signed Freddy Peralta and Aaron Ashby longterm early at low cost deals.

          They still have the ability to sign Burnes and/or Woodruff with payroll lowering and they have a top 2 prospect in baseball (Jackson Chourio) nearing the majors by the end of next season or 2024.

          Rebuilding can be avoided if you do it right and the Brewers have done it right.

          4 straight years in the playoffs. 2017 they went 86-76 and missed by 1 game and they will have a similar record this year.

          They know how to stay competitive.

    Brewers refuse quickly. The Brewers are loaded with OFs (including high prospect OFs in AAA) and want nothing to do with Taylor and his $45M contract. Duran and Cartaya are both in A ball and too far away to be relevent for Milwaukee in their shrinking time line. May is coming off TJ surgery and looks good so far. 2022 is Lux’s career year so far but he would be an upgrade at 2B. However the Brewers already have many options at 2B so he would be iffy in this deal. For Milwaukee, any trade of this magnitude would have to include Vargas.

    Possibly the Brewers make a counteroffer: Vargas (26.9) Lux (34.1) and May (35.4). Total: 96.4 for Burnes (94.1). Who says no?

  4. Daniel Posbrig

    I’d have a no from the Brewers end. Lux is a good player (and wisconsin native) but the brewers have MI options up and down the system

    They brewers will probably want to “retool” as opposed to full on rebuild. I’ll agree with Jmont1. Cartaya (even for his high ceiling) is too far away. And milwaukee has too many upper level OF’s. May just gets back from IL. (hit the IL with lat today I believe).

    Brewers would don’t have any big CI bats in the system, so I think any ask would start with Vargas (26.9). And some high ceiling pitching. Miller/Stone (28.7/19.7). And probably continue from there? Would the Dodgers even consider dealing that much for him?

    • Larry Krueger

      Hey DannyJ, thanks for your reply. It was my thought that the Dodgers would probably say no to the proposed trade I suggested, and you make a good point on why the Brewers say no. I like your idea of a Miller/Stone and Vargas combination looking at it from the Brewers side. Those 2 pitchers along with Gasser who they got from the Padres, and Ashby and Peralta could provide the Brewers with good starters for years, starting as soon as next year. Could the Dodgers throw in Michael Busch also? Is Burnes worth that much to the Dodgers? Probably not but it might be worth asking about it and see what happens from there.
