According to Ken Rosenthal of Foxsports.com the Brewers are interested in the Giants' Jack Taschner (UW-Oskosh alum and Wisconsin native) and Ray Durham. A potential trade involving those two makes sense to me...Taschner would add another lefty to the bullpen and provide an additional setup man for Yost to experiment with. Ray Durham would add a switch-hitting 2nd basemen to the bench (or starting lineup).
The SF Chronicle quotes Ron Schueler, an adviser to Giants' GM Brian Sabean;
"We have a depth of young pitchers," Schueler said. "If Brian feels like some of these guys can go out and get us some young players - a first baseman or a third baseman or a middle infielder - I think you've got to do it. That's just me. That's going to be a tough decision on Brian's part. The main thing is, we've got young pitching stacked up and coming."
Make it happen Doug, balls to the wall.
