Milwaukee trade

You're absolutely right. It would be a GREAT idea to get rid of all our AAAA players and get a good player in return.

Why you think ANY team in the majors would WANT to do us this huge favor is completely beyond comprehension.

Cause maybe we could get something good out of it. Like we did with Davis, and trading a ton of players for Frank Robinson back in the day.

Milt Pappas was a pretty good pitcher when he got traded. What is funny is his FIP was lower in 1966 then it was in 1965 but his ERA jumped over a run in a half.

There were some very bad defensive clubs in between the two.

Oh trust me, i know. I hadn't seen the O's win until 2012 (born in '98), and my parents were loyal fans who watched every collapse and fantastically awful season in the dark ages (Was interested, but watched St. Louis and Philadelphia cause I lived near Philly and dad worked for the Cardinals at their spring training site). Heck, I want to be a GM when I get older, so that's why I posted this trade. It made sense in my head, but the feedback told me it wouldn't work. That's why I asked.

Just for the record, those AAAA players are important as roster filler. There is no farm team who has a legit prospect at every position. The AAAA players help fill out rosters so that the teams can actually play just about every day. The GMs aren't so foolish as to believe random 28 year old Joe is going to become a great major leaguer. However, he's one of only two guys at AAA who can play catcher and therefore necessary.

Did you take your MBA yet? They say that is a prerequisite going forward.

Masters of Business Administration.

Not very common among those still going to high school.

I had not seen that he was so youthful. Probably a good aspiration as he wants to be a GM. Probably a better path than trade potentiality at this juncture.

It's ok you didn't know my age. Was polite of you not to ask :D . I'm getting ready for college and going for a BA in Business. I've looked at many GM's resumes and most just have a BA in Business or economics
