Ryan Braun - 1B - Brewers
Michael Duarte of NBC Sports Los Angeles reports that there have been trade talks involving Ryan Braun going to the Dodgers for Matt Kemp.
Braun has been mentioned as a possible Dodger target before, but it appears these talks have started to pick up some steam. Duarte also reports that the Dodgers would also send prospects to the Brewers in the deal, but there are holdups involving a certain player. This wouldn't be the blockbuster it was a few years ago, but Braun is still a solid player, and Kemp looks much improved after losing weight this offseason. This could be one worth monitoring.

I've never known anyone to play an April Fools joke on 3/31.

I have no idea who the main piece would be, but I'd be giddy if it was Ruiz (catcher, LAD's #3 depending on whom you ask), let alone Verdugo or Buehler. Personally I'd be fine with a good depth haul of several prospects who have a chance to be solid.


It's not happening

Maybe that's the point of the joke. Nobody would expect an April Fool's Joke on the day before.

I am not on board with this unless the prospects are close to blue chip...

What in God's name will we do with Kemp? Cut him?

Braun at 1B, and Cain, Yelich and Domingo in the OF is going to produce big time numbers. Thames I have no confidence in at all.

It would be a shame to ship Braun off for next to nothing. I'm used to the idea of him getting a game or two off a week.

Those of you who think he would rather stay in Milwaukee because we have something brewing, do you not think the Dodgers wouldn't be an attractive place to play given the fact that their team is 100% in contention for a WS title?

I don't always give sports commentators a lot of credit, but I don't think anyone with a reputation for some credibility and that many followers could be dumb enough to think it's funny to start April Fools jokes early. The whole point is to do it on 4/1.

Sorry guys. I saw it in two places that seemed credible. My bad.

On the note of it being fake, I am glad. Don’t want Kemp. Love watching Braun play and want him to finish out his time with us as a winner.

Well apparently Stearns thought it was an early April Fools joke also.

For the record I was joking about the “April Fools joke” thing. There was a reference in the mystery 3B thread about that being an April Fools joke and I was pointing out this seemed even less believable. I’ll break out the blue font next time.

The guy who started the Braun to LA trade rumor has apologized. Said it was a joke pulled on him. He goes into detail about it.

Bad things should happen to people who try to pull April fool's jokes before April. Also a little disappointed there wasn't an attempt on the forums here.

Seen on Twitter in two different spots one breaking it, another confirming it. Maybe I have terrible sources but they seemed legit. Hug watch? Damn.

Per Ron Cervanka 1 hr ago(@think_blueLA) BREAKING: Just received info from a reliable source that there is a possible trade in the works between the Dodgers and Brewers involving @TheRealMattKemp and several top Dodger prospects.


Per Michael J. Duarte 30 min ago (@michaelduarte) I can confirm that the trade talks with the #Dodgers  and #Brewers are for Matt Kemp and Ryan Braun as well as Dodger prospects. Right now, the deal is hung up one specific player the #Dodgers  don't want to move.


As well as Dodger ProspectS. Had me dreaming. Was what I wanted so many posts ago.
