We keep hearing Milwaukee doesn't want to rent but if the Brewers do not want to give up a high level prospect Texas may be a partner. Luis Ortiz and Zacj Brown for a half season of Darvish. Who says no?

Hell no.


[wink]

Rather just ride out a Suter/Woodruff/Guerra battle for starting pitching improvement. Haven't gotten sustained good pitching from them yet

The Brewers are in a development stage. Trading prospects for a 3 month rental doesn't make sense. If we were in the Royals situation, with Moose, Cain, Hosmer, etc. potentially leaving, then you go for it.

The fan in me says LETS PLAY. Unless he pre-agrees to a contract extension though it's a no to me, especially considering the money he's going to command at his age. The back end of the deal will end up like Verlanders imo.

Reminder, he is a free agent at years end and the Brewers will get a supplemental pick.

I think your crossing items here.

Yes as a small market team, the Brewers will get a supplemental pick between rounds 2 & 3 this coming season. By getting a group B pick, they will also get an additional 500K in their international signing pool.

The Brewers would not get a pick for Darvish departing as a Free Agent.
a) for a player to be eligible for a qualifying offer, the player needs to be in that organization the entire system. Hence by not dealing Darvish, the Rangers would have the opportunity to extend a qualifying offer. Anyone else... no dice.

I love watching Yu Darvish pitch. A player I would love to see in Milwaukee. However I don't see a way that this deal makes sense for the Brewers, as Darvish will be an expensive rental who we'd be very unlikely to sign to an extension. I just so badly wish it wasn't so...

Yep, if the Brewers could get Darvish to agree to an extension as part of a trade with the Rangers, back up the prospect truck. Saving that though, this is not something the Brewers should be doing unless the price is a lot lower than I assume it is.

Someone will pay big for Darvish - but it won't be us. Not for a rental - and not at the price it will likely cost. If he is traded, my guess is he goes to the Yankees.

Agreed. I assume we'll explore the option, but we shouldn't tap into the top 10 prospects for a rental...not at this stage of the rebuild.
