BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Now that the Brewers have purged their most valuable assets from the major league roster, what is the next step in their rebuilding process? What opportunities do they have to improve their system, outside of draft or free agency?
(Peter from Phoenix)
One of the underrated pieces of Stearns' rebuilding job has been his accumulation of depth. Ryan Braun could be a hot commodity this winter -- though I think he stays -- while the Brewers will have some mid-rotation depth in the starting rotation. Guys like Jimmy Nelson, Junior Guerra, and Wily Peralta could be on the trade block. Domingo Santana could be surplus to requirements, too. The obvious trade pieces are gone, but Stearns has shown that he's willing to get creative and move controllable pieces to better the organization. I also think the Brewers need to make a larger investment in the international market. (J.P. Breen)
2016-08-01 16:00:00 (link to chat)In a deep NL-only league, if you had to pick one for next year of the "out of nowhere" Brewer starting pitchers -- would you bet on Junior Guerra or Zach Davies? Thanks, J.B.
(J.B. from Las Vegas)
Guerra has more of a ceiling despite his advanced age. I lean him, but Davies is pretty good too. (Mike Gianella)
