Could the Brew Crew make a big splash at the trading deadline.

Dodgers Padres BaseballThe Milwaukee Brewers shocked the baseball world last year trading for CC Sabathia at mid season. Doug Melvin the Brewers GM has a big market mentality for such a small market club. The latest such rumor has the Brewers making a run at Jake Peavy. The Brew Crew has the offensive talent to make the playoffs but the loss of Ben Sheets and CC Sabathia was devastating to their starting rotation.

Melvin states that last season part of the reason for the Sabathia move was that they were playing so well and owed it to their fans to make a serious run at the playoffs. If they hang in there with the Cubs and stay within striking distance don’t be surprised at all if they make a power move for Peavy.

The question is can their current rotation hang in there with the big dogs? Do they have the bait that it would take to land a fish like Peavy? I don’t think so.
