That's only the supply side of the Law of Supply and Demand.

Milwaukee got big returns from trading decliners like Lucroy and Carlos Gomez. That's a credit to their FO. They are trading off of that surplus.

With the Cain signing, Milwaukee is clearly "all in" and will be motivated to fill any and all holes. Y. Sanchez just might be trade bait.

Do the Brewers need a "big game" starter?

The Brew Crew now has a surplus of good outfielders. They can flip one of them for a Starter and sign either Arrieta or Darvish. Cub fans will not be smiling if that happens. At least they would still have the Pirates and Reds to beat up in their division.......(you can never count out the Cards).

But when I think natural hitter, I think of high average guys. We kind of thought that is what he was coming out of college, but he hasn't been at all since arriving.

This is a HUGE year for him. He has to see his value rebound. He isn't sniffing top 100 lists this year for a reason.
Your evaluation is spot on, when I said natural hitter I was referring more to overall presence in the box, rather than pure bat to ball skills, if that makes any sense. It doesn't really describe a single type - he just has several already elite skills that can't be taught, and since his contact issues can probably be remedied without jeopardizing those skills, I'm still pretty high on his floor despite the results thus far.

Yeah, the fact his batting eye is as good as it is gives me continued hope for his future. The fact he is as slow as he is will cut down his avg a bit even if he hones his skill. Watched him on MiLB.TV for a few games last year. He reminded me of Paulie, very stiff body movement.
