I think they could do better for Hader, but I'm not very high on Dalbec.

They also have $36 million worth of OFers on their bench, lol. But sure, trading the worse one for SP depth is insane.

What's your issue Chi Sox? I haven't been condescending with you, no need to do so with me.

I stated that I don't see the Brewers taking on Dallas Keuchel, even if they are able to dump Bradley. I'm sorry not everyone here agrees with your self-proclaimed massive intelligence.

Natedog, you're now arguing with me from a different account. You've done this before and I find it hilarious that you need to create additional accounts to make it look like people agree with the things you say. LMAO. It's laughably childish, but have fun I guess, kiddo.

You don't need to tell me that Natedog and DavidStearnsGM posting here at the same time of day or that both accounts write in the same tone is some kind of coincidence. You have some internal issues to address, it appears.

Anyway, I don't think it makes sense to claim that the Brewers wouldn't take Kuechel, but they'll put 2 $18 million outfielders on their bench? If Cain isn't even starting, getting Keuchel for Bradley is a no brainer for MIL. JBJ would hardly ever get into games in your scenario. Keuchel still has the upside to be a productive back-end starter.

Natedog & Chi Sox,

Quit being children and grow up! You two both delve into juvenile potshots and it challenges both of your intellects. Neither team is "racist" or "bad". Just kiss and make up already!

"Stearns and the Brewers would probably be all over this"

Man, you really say something and then think it's uber intelligent, don't you? I say that because reading through these comments, it's common for both you and Natedog.

Look, would the Brewers love to get rid of the money they owe Jackie Bradley Jr.? Of course they would. But you're suggesting that Keuchel is going to be this guy that's totally worth taking on an extra 4.5M. I don't agree.

The best rate I've seen projected is that teams are spending around 6.5M per WAR in baseball right now. Keuchel needs to have a 2.8 win season to get net-zero. Per you, he's projected at 1.1 WAR in 2022. He's overpaid by 250%.

So while he may have a better outlook for 2022, according to you, he's not a guy the Brewers need. Just going by Steamer, Keuchel isn't even projected to be a top 7 starting pitcher for the Brewers in 2022.

I'd rather see if JBJ can do something. Keuchel has no spot on the Brewers.

Sorry that I refuse to praise your excellent baseball knowledge. I await your further hostile and condescending responses.

I said "essentially". Jackie Bradley, Jr. will make 9.5M in 2022, and his 8M buyout (which is a 99% sure thing at this rate) would factor into the 2023 payroll. That's 17.5M paid out over two years. Or one year of playing, and one year of dead money. However you prefer to look at it, the Brewers aren't paying out 17.5M in one season. They can space that out over two seasons, which is ideal.

Dallas Keuchel is as much a sunk cost for the White Sox as Jackie Bradley, Jr. is for the Brewers. And it's quite apparent you feel that way, as you're willing to trade Keuchel for JBJ.

So your justification makes sense for the White Sox, but not for Milwaukee, as they obviously don't like paying Bradley the money he's getting, why would they pay Keuchel his? At the very least, they can play Bradley at a position where depth is needed. The Brewers don't need a starting pitcher, especially not one as bad as Dallas Keuchel.

I think it's better that the Brewers try to see if there's any juice left in the Jackie Bradley Jr. lemon before they move on to another expensive, aging player.

David Stearns passes. Trust me, I'm David Stearns.

Yes. The whole "my guy is clearly more valuable, but give me your guy instead" argument lacks conviction.

The question at hand is which would the Brewers rather have:

A replacement-level player on a 2-year, 17.5M deal (which is essentially what JBJ is) or the same on a 1-year, 18M deal?

A team with unlimited budget would take Keuchel. A small-market team would take JBJ.
