About the Brewers
The Milwaukee Brewers (29-48) are the second worst team in baseball, joined by only the Phillies in baseball's under 30 win club. Like the Phillies, the Brewers are in a position where the organization needs to move veteran talent to become younger and more competitive. In particular, aging veterans in the final years of contracts - like Aramis Ramirez, Kyle Lohse and Jonathan Broxton - are likely candidates to be moved come next month's trade deadline.
