    Gotta hand it to Milwaukee - this helps them inre the Braun situation. I admit to feeling jealous - it seems everyone BUT the Reds are doing something to address team needs.

    Could be a good signing but his career splits away from Wrigley are not that great. Milwaukee is a hitters park so who knows.

    Crap. I was hoping to get him out of the division too. He's been a Red killer with the Cubs.

    He only has a .766 OPS against the Reds over the last 3 years. I'm not entirely worried. He'll be 34 next season. Nice bounce back year in 2010, but his D is below average now, and who knows how long his bat will play.

    Do you see the Brewers moving him to first in the likely event that they don't sign Fielder?

    They're losing Fielder and will be without Braun for 50 games. I'll be surprised if Aramis even plays more than 120 games for them.

    Ramirez 3-year deal with #Brewers expected to be in $34M to $37M range. Numbers not confirmed. Brewers earlier made offer to Rollins. #MLB

    According to Cot's Baseball Contracts, this deal would put the Brewers payroll for 2012 near $100M. Now, I'm not sure if Braun gets paid during a suspension, so it might be closer to $90M. Still, that's a big payroll for a mid market team.

    This is exactly the kind of deal you stay away from. He had a nice bounce back year but he had been on a decline for the previous few years. These deals often times end up back firing and hamstringing your club going into the future.

    Brewers pay up to get older. As a Reds fan, I like it.

    It seemed better than that. He is on the downside of his career so he's not the player he was.

    Braun will not get paid, but his deal is mostly backloaded, so he's only missing out on $1.63 million. I think I got that number from Darren Rovell.

    And wow, that contract is crazy. I was expecting it to be around $20M. Guess that shows how much I understand the market.

    That would be the smart move, imo. He's a liability at 3B these days, and only getting older and slower.
