    not getting an approval from me on this trade. Brewers are sending an ace starter for a bench guy and a closer. Just doesnt seem like an even trade to me

    A bench guy and a closer? Go look at the players stats in game. Willingham has mid 70s power on both sides, which is exactly what the Brewers are looking for. And Ziegler is not only a good pitcher, hes a submariner who has a wicked slider. Good luck finding one of those on the market. Brewers already have a lefty submariner, and now would have a righty to go with him. He had just won the bid on Ben Sheets, so Greinke fills two gaps with him not losing a SP in the process.

    Seems to make perfect sense to me.

    I understand the value of a reliever, but you're trading away a Cy Young pitcher for a good reliever and a decent outfielder.

    I can't approve this one either.
