Will the Brewers make a move? #HullYes or #HullNo

Jon Lester on June 29, 2009

You have to think that with the recent struggles the Brewers have gone through the urgency is there for them to do something before Thursday’s 3PM cst trade deadline, right?

Names like Jon Lester and David Price have been tossed out in the rumor mill, but let’s be honest…starting pitching is not the biggest need for this team and do the Brewers have the pieces to give up to acquire one of these guys?  With that said, I would welcome either to the rotation but my expectations are low!

That moves the attention moves to first base.  Well, that was the thought before Mark Reynolds got hot once again.  Remember in 2011 when the Brewers had issues at SS then Yuni B. got hot and the Brewers held on to him?  I see the same thing happening with Reynolds.

The bullpen?  Absolutely they need some help!  Will Smith and Francisco Rodriguez have looked pedestrian the last few weeks after amazing starts.  Outside of Zack Duke, there is not a lot of confidence in the Brewers pen.  This remains the most likely spot for the Brewers to go after.

The flip side of all of this is who are the teams willing to sell?  A few of the middle-of-the-pack teams have inched their way back in the “false hope” category so they may become buyers instead of sellers.  With a limited market, price tags will likely go up adding to the decision process.

My prediction…#HullNo.  For some reason, I just don’t see things falling in place of an impact deal at the moment.  That doesn’t mean something will happen after the deadline.  Don’t expect to be doing cartwheels on your front lawn at 3:01.
