No idea who this guy is an probably merit-less and I feel bad giving it attention since I don't know who he is but it's the offseason so...

Was just gonna post the same thing lol. As far as I know, he's not an insider or anything so guess we wait and see.

That seems like an oddly specific idea to throw out there. According to MLB Pipeline, the Brewers' #8-11 prospects are Zack Brown, Jacob Nottingham, Jake Gatewood and Payton Henry.

This guy will earn a follow from me if we get Greinke in the next 48 hours and he's sorta kinda close on the package. I'd put odds of about 95% that this guy is full of it, would have been 99.9% except that Brett guy nailed the Moustakas trade out of nowhere.

Yeah, I saw some Brewers bloggers retweeting this, which caught my attention for a second. BUT, there's just no way that this makes sense, right? Even if the Dbacks kicked in 35M, that would still be like us adding ZG for what would amount to a 3 year, 70M deal. No way we are throwing that type of money at a 35 year old pitcher. I'm calling BS on this tweet.

This is how the HH situation got started and spiraled. Fun to speculate, but probably shouldn't take it any further than this. I suppose, if this deal was in fact true, is it something Brewer Fans would like?

The Dbacks owe $95.5M over the next 3 years to Greinke, there are also $62.5M in deferrals over the life of the contract to be paid out from 2022-2026. Not an argument either way, just information to add to the discussion.

I edited the $65.5M to $95.5M, even CPA's can make simple math errors.....

Sigh, a 30 second inspection of this guys profile should have sufficed and avoided this thread.

Lucky for the **** that all the prospect rating sites have the same exact 4 players from 8-11 so it makes it so easy to just say 8-11 instead of the exact prospects.

Stearns probably had no interest in getting a C because the Brewers need a C. It makes much more sense to trade for 3B when it's not needed, and then move the other 3B to 2B, then trade for a 2B, but since the 3B is now at 2B, then the new 2B goes to SS

I just don't want to throw Zach Brown in any deal that doesn't net us a true #1 starting pitcher. Greinke is no longer that guy.

I knew I should have ranked Cam Roegner higher!

I'm really not sure how I can see this making sense for us. You never know, but sure seems BS to me

In all seriousness, Brewers On Deck is 6 days away. Based on past experience, I fully expect the Brewers to make a move this week. This team's media contingent and social media presence is ultra-cheesy like that.

Oh I agree, but given where our current payroll is sitting and the teams needs, I would think that paying $20M+ a year for an aged/aging pitcher is not Stearns idea of a good value. Now if he wants to sign Marwin Gonzalez and a mid rotation arm like Miley/Suckholz/Gonzalez/Pomeranz to a team friendly deal, I would kinda really like that...

If it was 2011 Greinke then sure. Or a true ace level pitcher (IDK say Kluber as a somewhat available guy) now I could see them 'overspending' if they think that's the last piece needed. But for current Greinke it just doesn't make sense.

Well Greinke did basically call Grandal the perfect catcher. A reunion on the horizon? Seems very unlikely with the financials involved, but it also wouldn’t be the first time a move came out of left field.
