Haven't blogged in a while, so i figure with the trade deadline near, I might as well....Heres's the 3 Milwaukee Brewers that teams will ask about at the trade deadline:
1) SP Zack Greinke: do you really need me to tell you why he may get traded? Cy Young...near the top of the games best pitchers...yada yada yada...ITS ZACK GREINKE. A contending team will DEFINITELY come calling for ZG.
2) 3B Aramis Ramirez: Some people think I'm crazy for thinking Aramis may get dealt. Think about it. He was brought to continue the "run" the Brewers could be on for the next 3 years...well, that doesn't look like it's happening now does it. If another team (the dodgers) want to offer a top tier prospect for Ramirez, I'm ok with that. I'm not pushing him out the door, but his name is not on the "untouchable" list. If this team is going to lose 3 starters from this rotation, they're taking a step back in 2013 no matter WHO they sign in the off season. It could be a while til they compete for the division title again. I did NOT feel this way at the all star break.
3) SP Randy wolf: teams look for veteran left handers. And I feel bad for Randy-nobody has had more leads blown by the bullpen IN THE MAJORS than Randy Wolf (8 as i write this on 7/24)
others who may get dealt:
RP John Axford-hey, he can still get the fastball up to 98.
RP Francisco Rodriguez-he was good....til the Phillies game on 7/23.
In closing...pretty much anybody not named Ryan Braun is fair game to get dealt. He's the only "untouchable"
