Why would Milwaukee have interest in either of these trades? Jim Henderson showed he was good enough as a closer, at least as good as Reed, and maybe better. DeAza for them is basically Aoki - they have a glut of outfielders and do not need another. Also, they may shift Aoki to first because they have a gaping hole there. Most significantly, Lucroy is under an extremely affordable contract through 2017, and has turned into perhaps a top-5 catcher in baseball. They also don't really have a need for Santiago, already having Lohse, Peralta, Gallardo, and Estrada, with several young players to compete for a 5th starter spot.

The trade proposals on WSI often seem to not really analyze the trade from the perspective of the other team. These would be disaster trades for Milwaukee.
