    It wouldn’t be easy for the Brewers to give up their starting shortstop and biggest cheerleader but if this trade is offered the Brewers should take it. The pitching the Brewers get in this trade helps open up the trade possibilities for Woodruff or Burnes, not both. The Brewers should be able to get more hitting, possibly in the position of 3B or catcher. Assuming they also get multiple players back in a trade for one of the pitchers, it might result in a roster crunch but that may be a good problem to have. I would hope the result is a stronger roster with good depth.

    This definitely wouldn’t be easy for Milwaukee. Losing Adames is a huge blow to their already mediocre at best offense. I certainly wouldn’t do this as an initial trade of the pre-season. The only way it would help the Brewers is if they got some big time offensive in other trades. It would be different if Ynoa was healthy. However, he just had TJ surgery and is out all of 2023 and will be in arby when he returns. Milwaukee would put this proposal on the back burner and see how everything else turned out before making a decision.

      I agree it would be a surprise if this trade happened first. If it would, I’d expect the next trade would have been discussed and be on the back burner ready to be completed. I didn’t know about Ynoa’s TJ surgery. Thanks for pointing that out.
