Re: If you could acquire one player at the deadline, who would it be?
Out of the realistic options I would say: Aramis Ramirez
10 million in cash to offset money
I know many won't deal Cingrani, but it's the only way Milwaukee kicks in money. I think they could use Broxton in their bullpen next year. If you look at what Broxton is making plus the 10 million you could afford Aramis.
10 million this year
14 million in 2014
16 million in 2015
7 million in 2014
9 million in 2015
If you can get the Brewers to kick in the extra 10 million you have your cleanup issue solved for a few years without much extra money.
Aramis gives you a legit #4 hitter.
If you're going for it. Go for it.
