Would make for one heck of an outfield. And Braun would be the most expensive pinch hitter in MLB.

I have seen the idea of him taking a 1 year deal...which I think is complete insanity.

BUT we would be a real interesting landing spot for him if we didn't already have a pretty maxed payroll. Handing Harper in excess of $35mil just wouldn't happen and clearly a huge long term deal is not happening.

If there is DH in the NL this season, wouldn't mind getting Harper on a one year deal and move Braun to the DH. Our lineup would be amazing.

As much as I'm on board with the Brewers' fiscal responsibility, I'd offer him something reasonably close to the 10/$300m he turned down from the Nats. I don't think he's getting that type of offer any more, and I think he might have had doubts about Washington's ability to remain a contender.

Yea, I realize it's completely unrealistic and all. But if all of a sudden the market is making his contract not ridiculous in a weird way there could be value in him. Like say he took a 7/200ish type deal with some backloading maybe with some opt outs or something. Still, I know even MKE probably can't do that but I saw SF is in on him now and it's probably for that reason. His price probably isn't at the absurd amount they thought at the beginning of the offseason.

This pretty much sums up my feeling on the situation. Probably not the way to build for a small market but it would certainly be fun to see Yelich-Harper in their prime in Milwaukee.

We're talking about offering someone who has missed more that 25% of the major league season in three of the seven years he has played?

Hard pass for me.

For $30-35 million a year... I'd need to be sure he'd be in 150+ games a season.

I'm not sure there's anything more than a little bad luck with his injury history, but it's certainly a concern. Nothing that's career-altering though.

For Harper, I'd offer this:
2019: $35 million
2020: Team option for $35 million/$15 million buyout.
2021: Team option for $35 million/$10 million buyout.

$10 million each year deferred in equal payment to October 1 of 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025, and 2026.

So you're offering a contract that either is 1/$60 or 2/$80 3/$105... crazy!

I guess that would be 1/$50m, not 1/$60m. I think it's out of the question that you could get him for that. He plays well and you obviously pick up the options, so it's 3/$105m? That's absurdly low in years. No way. Even in this market, guys like Arrieta and Darvish got $20m per year for at least 3 years when they were already in their 30's and showing alarming signs of decline.

We don’t need Harper. Those contracts are ridiculously high, especially for the Crew. My moneys on Braun bouncing back and having a top 5 MVP year. Book it!

Didn't you literally just say, "hard pass for me," because of his injuries?


I think Harper is a really good player, and it'd be great to get a LH'ed bat in the lineup who can hit 40 and post a .400 OBP, but I don't see this being even remotely possible. I don't think he'd take this and I doubt the Brewers would be willing to add another 25 million this year AND commit to 10 million per year from 2022-2026.

Not sure if the MVP part was supposed to be in blue, but I do think Braun will be a much more productive hitter this year. He altering his swing and he hit into very poor luck last year. I think he'll help pick up some of the slack that Yelich will inevitably leave from last years performance.

I also feel good about Aguilar bulding on last years break out. He said himself he pushed once he started neaering milestones. Hopefully with that self-awareness and another year of maturity, he can become a productive hitter all year long. As long as he keeps that short approach and takes the ball to right when it's pitched away. If he does that all year, I think he could be a .290/.380/.500+ type guy.
