    Why would the Brewrers have any interest in this trade? Milwaukee needs pitching and getting only Hall back, the Brewers would say no thanks right away. Hall hasn’t put it together yet in the big leagues and is far too big a risk to take if the Brewers want to stay competitive in the weak Central division. Milwaukee has no place for Norby to play. Mayo is at least a year away and no help. The Brewers lose a TOR starter and get no help in return.

      It only makes sense if they’re sellers at the deadline. Let’s be honest, the Brewers have not been very good. They’re 28th in pitching and 17th in offense this year according to FanGraphs. Plus, we all know they’re not extending Burnes. Might as well get something for him. 3 top 100 prospects is pretty good value for a guy set to be a free agent after next season.

    Top 100 prospects are nice if they fit a team’s needs. As it stands, the Brewers could do much better for what they want when they trade Burnes. Hall obviously is the key to this trade. IF he can prove he can be a #3 type starter, the Brewers would be interested. If he continues on his same current path, no way. As aautry169 said, Norby has no place to play in Milwaukee. They already have 4 top 100 prospect outfielders and Urias and Turang at 2B with Miller and Anderson also available. Now if the Orioles kept Norby/Mayo and swapped in Wells/Westburg I think Milwaukee would be very interested.

      That’s fair. But the Brewers don’t have a lot of needs and teams that are contending aren’t going to want to give up several good, young major league ready players. Burnes value has dropped this year as well with his struggles. If they had traded him last offseason they could have gotten a haul, but right now he has a 3.97 ERA and a 4.81 FIP. He’s pitching like a 3 or 4 starter, not an ace. It’ll be interested to see how it plays out.

    The Brewers should be looking to add to their roster not trade away from it or try to thread the needle by basically moving deck chairs around. Go out and acquire a bat that can play an OF position and another back end SP and maybe a bench utility type that can play great defense and maybe steal a bag in a big spot for a playoff run. You’re in first place for goodness sake! Let the players know you believe in them, you support them. Act like a team that wants to win it all!

      They could add, but so far they’re not playing like a team that can compete for a championship this year. Being in a bad division makes it difficult to sell, but they have to know they’re nowhere near the top tier teams in the NL like the Braves and Dodgers. Maybe they’ll prove me wrong, but the Brewers don’t look like a playoff team to me. If their GM doesn’t think they can hang with the top teams, he has to consider selling off some veteran pieces. Maybe they can even get a team to take Yelich in a Burnes deal.
