And, if the Pirates do it, and are going where the Brewers are going, you would also be the first to call for the GM's head.

You wouldn't want the Pirates to make a World Series push?!?! That's what this is all about. This is about 1909, 1925, 1960, 1971, and 1979. You don't make deals assuming they'll fail. You make deals that will strengthen the club. I'll take the Marlins two World Series rings over the A's and Twins consistently above-average teams that will never win the title.

It's easy to say those A's teams had no shot in hindsight.

EDIT: Weren't the 2003 Marlins very much like a 2000s A's team?

Segura would be alright but not Braun. Shoot Segura has not been around long enough to be too corrupted. 8-) The 6 years the Brewers were winning they had an arrogance that only their fans admired. Humble ball players are admired by most all fans....some grudgingly. I doubt too many other fans rooted for the Brewers. Karma is a bitch!

The news and notes on Segura is the Brewers made an offer to his agent for a long term deal. (He's on my fantasy team)

Great incident from watching last night's game:

My demure, polite, "still learning the game after four years of marriage to me" Filipina wife and I were watching the sixth inning.

When Jones' single broke through for the sixth run, she exclaimed,

"Suck on it Milwaukee!"

I love my wife! :D

The only guys I absolutely would not trade are Cole and Taillon. Simply because it's impossible for a small market team to sign an "ace" pitcher in free agency. Gotta groom those guys.

Last year, I thought Taillon was a good deal behind Cole (hence perhaps tradeable), but after seeing him pitch a bit in 2013 and looking at the numbers, I'd slap the "untouchable" tag on him now.


I agree that Taillon is really looking great this year. My only reason for being okay with trading him is that it's also impossible for a small market team to sign a great shortstop in free agency. And we have far more pitching depth than SS depth in the organization.

That'd be why I'm okay parting with Taillon IF the return is a dynamic young SS. Otherwise, definitely untouchable. Management is looking smart for refusing to include him in any talks for Headley and Upton last year.

Also agree that at some point you need to go for it. The Brewers, really, timed it well, it just didn't work out. Their biggest mistake was not dealing Prince when it was clear he wasn't re-signing, IMO. Yeah, you hurt yourself slightly in the short term but with the prospects (or maybe even young major leaguers) they'd have gotten back for him, their farm system wouldn't be ranked down with the Phillies and White Sox going forward.
