For the last several years, it seems like the Brewers have made a big player move in the couple of days leading up to their On Deck event. Last year was obviously Yelich and Cain. I know they announced the Garza signing a few years ago as well at On Deck. I know there has been others too. Attanasio seems to like to make a splash at this event every year.

That said ... the 2019 version of this event is 3 days away. I get the feeling the Brewers are going to make an acquisition of some sort in the next day or so that they can "announce" at On Deck. In my opinion it is extremely cheesy that they do this, but at this point, it seems to be more than just coincidental.

So, what do you guys think will happen? I have two guesses:

1. Sign Mike Moustakas to a 2-year/$22 million deal.

or

2. Sign Marwin Gonzalez to a 3-year/$30 million deal.

If I had to guess, I'd guess no acquisition is made between now and the On Desk event.

They added Grandal to the attendee list and he was a major signing this month.

Machado signing...

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

Gonzalez and Moose are the two that make the most sense to me as well. I think Moose will return to Milwaukee and be back on a one or two year deal.

I'm gonna go with Miley 2/12. I don't see any of the remaining FAs getting anywhere near what they want. Heck, they may be able to get Gonzalez too on a 3/21 or something. Those darn owners wanting to get the most for their money!

I'll second that. If you can't beat the Dodgers, get them to join you.

JT Realmuto trade, duh! Last year double down on outfielders, this year double down on catchers.

Wasn't it the Thursday night before On Deck that the Yelich/Cain moves happened last year? So, I think DS would have to get something done this evening if a big move were to happen with said player making it to Milwaukee in time for the On Deck event.

I'm very doubtful that this occurs this year. I think Grandal was our big offseason move.

Correct. Those deals went down Jan. 25 of last year. That makes tomorrow Yelichmas!

Brewers sign Mariano Rivera to a 1-year, $20 million deal.

It would be hilarious if that twitter "rumor" turn out to be true and the Brewers were waiting till the On Deck to announce the Grienke trade.
