Olney on Brewers: “We’ll talk about that guy, but nah, you know” | Disciples of Uecker

We'd like to go to the Playoffs, that would be cool.

ESPN’s Buster Olney stopped by the Jonah Keri podcast this week, and one of the teams they specifically talked about at length was the Milwaukee Brewers. The following comes from that conversation:

“The one thing about the Brewers that you hear is that, yes, they’re wiling to talk to teams…I think the way that you and I would do things if we were running a strat-o-matic teams is we would say ‘we’ll listen on all our guys, give us your best offer on all our guys.’ Where on their end it’s sorta like ‘well, we’ll talk about that guy, but nah, you know.’ Other teams are getting some of that. So that, yeah, you can talk about their lesser guys, but if I’m in their shoes you got Carlos Gomez who’s under contract through 2016, I mean, my goodness you could put him out there. Tell me a team like the Mets right now you couldn’t theoretically come up with some sort of a match and is that a guy they could desperately use right now. Uh, absolutely.”

Just in case that wasn’t enough for you, he then went on to say this:

“Also you mention Francisco Rodriguez, the one thing I’ve heard from several teams is, in this post Ray Rice era, they’re scared away by the history of domestic violence.”
