On Thursday, the Milwaukee Brewers shocked the baseball world twice with in the span of about an hour and a half as they announced that they made a trade and Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported that they had signed a player.
Yesterday, the Milwaukee Brewers announced that they acquired outfielder Christian Yelich from the Miami Marlins for four prospects, including three of the teams top ten prospects.
Shortly thereafter, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported on Twitter that the Brewers had made their second big splash of the day by agreeing to terms with free agent outfielder Lorenzo Cain.
Jerry Crasnick of ESPN later reported that the two sides agreed on a 5 year, $80 million contract, which would be the largest of this offseason.
We here at Rox Pile showed the case for the Rockies signing Cain just before Christmas and made cases for the Rockies trading for Christian Yelich in these two articles. With the Brewers moves, it obviously makes the Rockies external choices for outfield spots but what else does it mean for the Rockies?
