The Brewers have been active on the trade market lately, but not with every team in the league. Some teams have received more attention than others, though it can happen for various reasons. It’s hard to get anything from teams when the objectives line up (rebuilding or competing), and teams within the division will be traded with less often as well. Despite that, there are also teams that trades just rarely work with.
Today’s Thursday Thinker is going to test how well you know the recent trades with other teams. Based just on the most recent trade that the Brewers have conducted with each team, can you figure out which team matches up with each trade in six minutes?
(EDIT: It's been pointed out that there's a few more recent trades that aren't covered in this list. So, for the purposes of this quiz, it's most recent trade prior to the end of the 2016 season.)
