The MLB Trade Deadline is quickly approaching. By 3:00 PM CT the Milwaukee Brewers will have made some trades in a playoff push. Or will they? Rumors are flying and fans don’t know what the team will do.

Fellow contributor Trevor Hooth and I decided to have a discussion on what we think the Milwaukee Brewers will do at the deadline as well as what they should do. David Stearns makes the actual decisions but which way could he be leaning? What potential players can fans expect to join the club?

On the other side, what prospects could potentially be on the way out to get these major league players? We can’t know for sure but with less than two weeks until the deadline passes, decisions will have to be made very soon.

The Brewers won’t be selling this year. Their clubhouse believes that they can pull this off and win the division with the group they have right now. There’s a lot of good chemistry with this club and they’re having a good time. Success tends to breed success. If they can continue this success, they’ll make the playoffs.

Although they understand that they’ll need some outside help to make a deep run and making a splash at the deadline could boost morale for this team that already has a rather high morale. It proves to the players that the front office believes in the team and is willing to push for the playoffs.

So what could the approach be? Let’s discuss
