    People would have freaked if we traded Snider and Cecil for a Cy Young winner a few years ago as well. People need to realize that in base, more than any other sport, prospects flame out. I will always take the sure talent.

    Dickey's 2-yr, $25M deal is $1.5M cheaper than Ryan Dempster's deal, despite much better ERA since 2010: 2.95 vs 4.04

    I never said the future was doomed, he's putting words in my mouth... I just said the farm took a huge hit, but it's obviously worth it, because we are going to be a competitive team for at least the next 3 years if things don't go horribly wrong.

    Now get Berkman and get an answer out of Oliver. If he walks sign JP Howell, and then take a vacation AA , you've earned it!

    Yes, but one was a free agent, the other was not.

    How has Milwaukee done in rebuilding their system since the 2010-2011 off-season when they traded for Greinke and Marcum?

    Our Minor league teams are still stacked... we lost some good kids this offseason but we are still stacked. TDA was never closer to the MLB then last year. Was going to start the year in AAA and be there until september unless a catcher got hurt and I think AA seen this and traded him to be fair. JPA as much as his defense is suspect his bat is good... if he would improve the average slightly he would be perfect and AA loves him or he would have been dealt a while ago.. Texas called about him and so did another team. If we can prove we can win with this team its going to be the same with the other prospects... they will be stuck in the minors until someone gets hurt. Or they will be traded too...

    If Oliver walks, i assume Happ will take his spot in the bullpen

    There were no 38 year old Cy Young winners a few years ago, so I think we would have been all for that

    Plus Cecil was pretty damn good before he started throwing like a girl.

    i think this is the worst case scenario or at least a bad one. AA has been pretty good with the farm and drafting players, but hopefully he doesn't lose focus on that if puts too much attention on the talent in the MLB level.
