    who says no? I think its interesting but something both orgs probably aren’t interested in trying.

    • Nate Dub

      The Brewers aren’t giving up Corbin Burnes. Period. Especially not for that measly return.

      • Nate Dub

        You have a “meh” SP (Cease), a couple of relievers (Crochet and Heuer), a teenage pitching prospect, and a 2B who HAS to hit .300 to get any kind of value in exchange for one of the best pitchers in baseball and a superbly talented infielder who can play almost anywhere.

        I’d guess they’d demand a package STARTING with Luis Robert just to get the conversation going.

          • Nate Dub

            Burnes + Hiura = 105.1M. Burnes is very likely to gain value, especially if he keeps up what he’s doing. Hiura could also gain value. Let’s take it to 125M.

            Robert, being around 105M in value, still leaves 20M. That doesn’t factor in the type of overpay that would be necessary in such a trade where the White Sox get 9 years of team control of guys who are obvious upgrades over what you have them giving up.

            All in all, we’re talking about 150M in value going back to the Brewers.

            Robert- 105M
            Kelley- 6M
            Crochet- 13M
            Cease- 22M

            That’s 146M in exchange for what’ll likely be around around 125M in total value.

            I still think the Brewers say no to that deal, TBH. The White Sox would absolutely, without a thought, say yes (for the obvious reasons).

    • Nate Dub

      Agreed. Hiura is better than Madrigal and Burnes is better than Cease.

      If I’m taking a downgrade at two spots at my MLB roster, then the prospects better make up for it. I’m not convinced that Garrett Crochet and Jared Kelley cut it in that regard.

        how’s that hiura comment working out lol, also plays first base bc he ain’t a good enough 2nd baseman btw

      • Ryan Kurtz

        i am once again back to ask you how that hiura over madrigal take is looking..

        • Nate Dub

          Man, imagine someone making a silly comment on an internet board and it bothering you for three full weeks, enough that you kept returning to it to point out how much it bothers you.

          It’s just an opinion. You’ll be fine. Get some sleep.

          If you need something to keep you up at night, you should be more worried about how little Rick Hahn did to build any depth. Boy, it’ll be funny watching the White Sox miss the playoffs in favor of the Royals this year.

          • Ryan Kurtz

            your take was dumb. sorry not sorry but i’ll let you wear it bc hiura is dogshit
