With the Dodgers looking to shore up their bullpen, would it make sense for the Brewers to try and see if they can't deal a lower-level bullpen guy to the Dodgers to get a prospect or two?

Dodgers get:
RHP Brandon Woodruff
RHP Jacob Barnes

Brewers get:
SS/2B Drew Jackson
3B/1B Jared Walker

I just cannot wrap my head around this, at all.

Edit: Clancy, could you go further on your evaluations of these players? I’m really interested. Barnes and Woodruff have pretty good value and Barnes especially is helping us this year.

Why are people still trying to rebuild? Sure, get prospects when you can but don't trade guys who are actively helping you have the best record in the national league.

Well, Barnes and Woodruff seem to be lower on our depth chart.

I like Drew Jackson as a solid SS who could put up a .750-.775 OPS at the position. Very good OBP skills and speed, some pop. Arcia's looking more and more like a but of a bust offensively, and maybe it's time to fetch what value the Crew can get for him while he still has control.

Walker is a 3B/1B option who could be ready in a couple of years - his bat strikes me as a good OBP/power combination.

Just to play devil's advocate, even if you did really want those two guys from L.A, you're giving up way, way too much value. Woodruff is a borderline top 100 prospect and Barnes is a very controlled late inning type reliever who strikes out over a batter an inning for his career and is having a career year.

You are getting very bad value for what you're giving up. Barnes alone would have to bring back more than Jackson and Walker.
