Brewers Say Saturday Can’t Come Soon Enough


Brewers Spring Training

Are we there yet?  Are we there yet?  Like a too-long car ride on a cross-country family vacation, the Milwaukee Brewers just want Saturday’s trade deadline to be over and done with.

“Everyone just wants to get that day over with,” said Corey Hart.  “When we’re past it, we can move forward.”

“It comes and goes.  It’s one of those things where you know business is business,” says Rickie Weeks.  “We’re on a team with talent and you want to keep that. Sometimes you can’t keep it.  Team cohesion, that’s a big part of playing every day in baseball and we want to keep that.”

“Everybody here wants to stay, no one here wants to get traded,” said Hart.  “We’re comfortable together.  We play well together…and we fit well together.”

Manager Ken Macha dodged a few trade deadline questions this week, reassuring everyone that nothing new had materialized.

Considering Prince Fielder would command quite the bounty from any potential hunter and Corey Hart trade rumors have become silent over the last four days, I find no evidence to prove the team will look much different than it does now come Sunday.

What do you think?  Should we trade now or in the offseason?  If now, who and for what in return?  With playoffs unrealistic at this point in the season, are the Brewers foolish for NOT selling?
