How All Of The Brewers Hitters Were Acquired:

Mark Attanasio and Doug Melvin have been aggressive of the brass for the ‘Brew Crew’ over the last half a dozen years.
They have made strides to make the team relevant – by making trades for ALL – Star Pitchers, but they have also done some great drafting on the offensive side.
Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy, Khris Davis, Scooter Gennett and Rickie Weeks were all great draft selections in the lineup, while Carlos Gomez was acquired by trading another great player in J.J. Hardy.
You also have a bench player like Logan Schafer drafted by the squad.
So what does this point out exactly?
This team has done a nice job of drafting – and knowing when they are not contenders (ie trading Greinke for Segura), in order to restock their roster for future seasons.
Carlos Gomez is one of the best all around players in the game of baseball.
The Pitching Staff will be fun to do for the exact same reason.
We are seeing a pattern of how this team has been fairly good in recent years, with namely the ‘Ryan Braun’ era (2007 – Present).
For those that have never seen one of our Roster Trees, we go over how all of the players were acquired.
It works like 6 degrees of separation. By searching back to the origin of all the way back until a player is signed, drafted or purchased.
It totally gives you an idea on how the franchise has fared.
