Trade Rickie Weeks for Jake Peavy

Trade JJ Hardy and Prince Fielder for Scott Kazmir

Rotation
1. Sheets
2. Peavy
3. Kazmir
4. Capuano
5. Bush

Lineup
1. Tony Gwynn Jr. - CF
2. Tony Graffanino - 2B
3. Corey Hart - RF
4. Bill Hall - SS
5. Geoff Jenkins - LF
6. Ryan Braun - 1B
7. Corey Koskie - 3B
8. Johnny Estrada - C
9. Pitcher

I don't know, maybe I'm nuts, but this seems like a team that would really compete. We would also have depth in our pitching staff is Sheets went down.

The offense would be non-existant with that roster.

I read a couple weeks ago that Kevin Towers personally told Peavy he'll be in San Diego as long as he runs the show. I know it's a business and promises are made all the time, but I think there's a better chance of getting Manny and Schmidt.

obviously, that lineup would count on TGJ being a legit leadoff guy and Braun being able to hit well in the majors. But i think that team could average 4.5 runs per game, which would be enough with that rotation.

We'd win 50 games max!!! 1.5 runs scored per game results in to many loses....sure, kazmir, peavy, sheets, cappy, and bush would be awesome, but even if they pitch great, u still need to score!!!! and with an offense like that, u put to much pressure on the pitching...example would be dd, who lost numerous games even with fielder and weeks in the lineup, because of lack of production...weeks and fielder arent the problem, their part to our solution and future!!!

Wendy Selig-Prieb personally told Cirillo that they wanted to extend him, not trade him. Less than 24 hours later he was a Rockie

Mortgage all future for a good rotation.

After 3 months. DM would be looking for sticks and wish he never made those moves.

do you guys really think this team would be that bad offensively... even if it was an offense that averaged 3.5-4 RPG, it would be a playoff team.

Pitching and Defense win championships... our only hole would be at 1B.

If needed, we could still trade for Burrell or Baldelli with Vargas, Villenueva, Jackson, or some of our other minor league pitchers.

That's cold, comparing anyone to Wendy Selig-Prieb. Did Kevin Towers make a drunken pass at your mom, or hit and run a biking kid or something?

I'd be willing to trade Weeks for Peavey though. No chance I'd trade Fielder

They averaged 4 runs last year, and that was with Fielder and Weeks...what do you think it would look like with graffanino, cirillo, counsel, and braun plantooning between 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and lf? I agree it would be a great rotation, but giving up on fielder and weeks this early seems absurd IMO

We'd have the best rotation in the league.

But we wouldn't score...ever.

i'm not giving up on them, but IMO, its harder to find great established pitchers than first and second basemen.

If Braun can play 3rd, he can play 1st.

i guess maybe i'm a little optimistic about the ability of that lineup to produce runs.

TGJ and Graffy set a good table for...

Hart (20-25 HRs, Hall 30-40 HRs, and Jenkins 18-23 HRs)

Braun is a wild card in this lineup (10-30 HRs)

Koskie and Estrada make a solid 7 and 8 hitter.

I know Prince is going to be our key source of run production this season, but the rest of the team will be better than we were last year.

More like 3.5, imo. That might be one of the worst lineups in the league.

while im not sold on the idea of "depleting" the offense, i do know there have been much worse brewer lineups out there.

On the bright side, there would be a lot of quick games. Losing 1-0 or 2-1 makes for some less than 3 hour affairs.
