With a lack of farmdepth to get a SS...


So everyone would love to see a replacement for Yuni but being limited in the farm system, would people support trading McGehee and Yuni together (possibly to a AL team)?

I know the McGehee is slumping, so the Brewers would be selling low (not to mention I'm not sure if a team would want to trade for that left side of an infield, lol), but if they can improve the SS position with a ML SS or a ML-ready SS in AAA and call up Green for 3B (or Gamel if they preferred - they survived Braun for half a season, so I'm sure they could survive Gamel for half a season as well if they got better production and better D at SS), it couldn't worsen either position in the short term and depending on the SS could help them in the long term.

Obviously they won't be getting Reyes with this combo, but with McGehee's continued struggles and Green in AAA, how long will he be the starter anyways? If they keep McGehee next year and even if he finishes the season better (.245 and 15HR if they're lucky?), I could see a somewhat-open competition for the starting spot. The fact that McGehee is under arb til 2015 makes it attractive for team that maybe wants to use him as a 3B/DH (given that his knees won't get any better) with hopes he turns it around while not costing them much. This would offset the halfyear of paying Yuni to stink up their infield instead of the Brewers' and hopefully they get something of use.

Just something to spark a discussion, not even sure which way I feel yet...
