With the trade deadline just over a month away, things are about to get interesting.
The phones will be ringing, and blockbuster deals will be made.
One of the more surprising moves last year at the deadline was when the Milwaukee Brewers sent All-Star closer Josh Hader to the San Diego Padres.
The deal ultimately didn’t work out for the Brewers, who fell short of the postseason while the Padres secured a Wild Card.
This season, the Brewers are in a better position.
On the baseball podcast “Foul Territory,” Hader spoke about his old team’s success and stated that he believes they should go all-in at the trade deadline.

Hader was asked about last year’s shocking trade and whether or not he believed the Brewers would pull something like this off again, this time with players such as Christian Yelich or even right-hander and former Cy Young Corbin Burnes.
Hader said that he wasn’t sure what would ultimately happen and commented on the fact that his job is to pitch and not give insider analysis on trades.
However, the veteran left-hander did state that he does not think the Brewers should trade Burnes or Yelich, saying that they should “ride it out” to the end of the season and suggesting that the Brewers should go for it this year.
Milwaukee currently trails the Cincinnati Reds by a game in the NL Central.
They have been battling it out with the Reds over the past several weeks for the top spot in the division.NEXT: Joey Wiemer Played The Hero For The Brewers In New York
