    The Brewers get offensive help and a former All-Star closer who had a particularly rough 2020, but then, who didn’t have a bad 2020?

    As for the Cubs, they unload a bloated contract (albeit having to pay 10 million) and get rid of Anthony Rizzo, as they begin their firesale. As return, they get a former All-Star in Daniel Vogelbach (who can hit) and Josh Hader, a very good closer to fill in for Kimbrel. If Jeremy Jeffress (excluding has last 2 performances) and Dan Winkler can maintain their 2020 performances and Brailyn Marquez throws some low-pressure innings, that could be a good group. Oh, and don’t forget Rowan Wick, who had a decent 3.12 ERA before getting shut down.

      I think everyone views the Cubs as having a fire sale, and therefore stepping back from being competitive this year. As such, they’d probably be less interested in Hader than in prospects.

    The Brewers would never take on over $20M in payroll for one year rentals. Huge NO from the Brewers.
