    IMO the Brewers say a huge no. They won’t trade a good SP for a backup infielder. McNeil is not the big bat they would be looking for if they trade a SP.

      I might be in the minority on this, but I have a different view on this trade. I think they are trading there #5 starter for a regular starter at 1B and DH assuming he is fully healed from his injury. McNeil has hit over .300 in 3 of his 4 years in the majors. His 162-game average is .299 with 16 home runs. His strikeout ratio is only 12.5% and that is something the Brewers could use. He is a left-handed hitter so I think his homerun total will increase in Milwaukee. He also can fill in at 3B and the OF. Lauer would be missed but hopefully Ashby can take over that spot with success.

      I have commented on other trades about McNeil’s trade value being less due to his last years performance. However, in this trade I think the trade is fair and I would make the trade. Both teams are trading from their strength. Brewers don’t like giving the Mets another starter, and I don’t think the Mets like giving the Brewers another hitter. That’s the give and take of a fair trade.
