This is bad.

1. The Brewers are actively trying to trade OF, not acquire them. And especially not old, washed up OF.

2. The Brewers are needing IF help.

3. That's not a high enough prospect for Ellsbury.

4. There's not a snowball's chance in hell the Brewers trade Villar for this sorry package.

Seriously, the Yankees aren't moving Ellsbury. The prospect (s) demanded would immediately shut down conversations.

I did hear something about the Brewers being interested in Jacoby, which baffles me. That seems like it would be the one area they don't need. I think they would need to move a little bit more than Abreu with him as well, no matter where he's going, and Villar is probably more than they'd get back. Abreu plus is just what they would have to include in order for a team to take Jacoby. They'd have to add to that whatever the equal value of a player coming to NY would be.
