I think the idea is that if you trade Shaw, you sign Moustakas to play 3B.

The problem with that is that a team could just sign Moustakas and save their assets.

I guess Moose will cost more - but otherwise, why spend your other assets when you can just sign a 3B?


Also the problem with that is that Moustakas is not as good as Shaw nor as versatile.


And a lot more expensive. All things considered Shaw >> Moose

Totally agree. That's why trading Shaw - in my opinion - is a no go.

My two biggest offseason targets: Marwin Gonzalez and/or David Freese.

Adding an arm would be fine, but I think they have so many options for the rotation I don't think it is a necessity. I mean a #1 ace type starter would be great. But they are not going to spend that type of money (like if Kershaw opts out) and I don't think they have the prospect capital to snag one in trade. Nor would I want to trade Hiura or Burnes in a package for one.

I think Marwin Gonzalez is going to be a hot commodity this offseason.

Only 30, versatile, switch hitter (without big splits), solid defender. He's only a year removed from a .907 OPS. There's a lot to like. And because of his versatility, he can fit in with a lot of teams.

I think he'll get rewarded quite nicely this off season.

I think you see DS make an under the radar type of FA.

I know this is likely in jest, but I have to admit that it is a little disconcerting watching a bunch of NL teams get better. Still very early, though.

The same thing happened last year, too, but Stearns knew what he was doing and didn't make any sort of bum move. Stearns waited for the right move(s) at the right price & time (esp. Jan. 25).

It does get frustrating when we want the Brewers to make moves and they could but they don't. I think last year provides a good lesson/reminder. Many of the potential moves that seemingly could've worked for the Brewers didn't happen, especially SPs, and in the end Stearns stuck to his guns. His two low-glitz acquisitions (Chacin & Miley) thankfully worked out better than most of us could've foresaw and the Darvish/Cobb/etc. crew definitely had seasons we could be glad happened for other teams, not us.

There's no award for winning the offseason. I'll still take having a better regular season than most/all NL teams over that.

Yes, primarily in jest. I enjoy seeing the landscape of talent shift teams during the off-season, but I think it’s obviously a natural reaction to watch other teams improve their rosters and subsequently daydream about the next move for the team of your own rooting interest.

We haven't even gotten to the winter meetings. Stearns acquired Chacin, Yelich and Cain all after the winter meetings. Not a bad haul.

After what happened last January 25th I am not worried about the limited activity as of December 5th.

Adding Chacin was an un the radar signing that caught almost off base

Here's one:

Sign Christian Yelich to a long term deal. The guy was an MVP this year, is still young, and is a genuine five tool player. He's the kind of piece we can build around for the next decade, like Ryan Braun ten years ago.


I don’t see the urgency here. He had a truly great 2nd half of the regular season but he still has 3 more years of control.

And not to nitpick but he is not a five tool player. Though his D would improve if he went to his more natural LF when Braun isn’t playing.



I'm not in favor of re-signing Yelich...seems pointless when we have a farm system loaded with young OF prospects and he has 3 years left on his deal. You'd just be paying him for half a season right now in which he was an MVP caliber player. I think he's great, but I don't think he's a triple crown type player.

But I do think he's a pretty legit 5 tool guy. What tool is he missing exactly?

His arm is below average.

I wouldn't at all be surprised to see a 12-man staff set up like this for 2019...

Initial Out Getters - Two to Three Times Through Guys

Chacin
Burnes
Peralta
Nelson
Anderson (or a LHP TBNL)
Guerra (or a LHP TBNL)
Davies (or a LHP TBNL)

With any of Anderson, Guerra, or Davies to be moved at some point to make room for a LHP or even two LHPs.

Mid-to-Late Game Out Getters - One Time Through Guys

Hader
Knebel
Jeffress
Woodruff
Jennings or Cedeno or a LHP to be named later

Woodruff could very easily be in the top group and swap places with Anderson, Guerra, or Davies. If Soria isn't moved, they'll likely have to stash someone in AAA at the outset.

I would expect one if not both of Anderson/Davies to be moved in the offseason. Need a LH initial out getter or two and the Burnes, Peralta, Woodruff trio are ready to break camp in the majors.


The LHP to be named later in the above to take the place of the "Jennings or Cedeno" looks like it will be Alex Claudio.

The post quoted looks like a realistic framework for how the staff could take shape in 2019.
