The Milwaukee Brewers are in a completely different area in the baseball world than the Colorado Rockies. From their inception in 1969 as the Seattle Pilots, before future MLB Commissioner Bud Selig bought the Pilots and moved them to Milwaukee to become the Brewers in 1970, they had only been to the playoffs four times.
However, since 2018, they have made it to the playoffs four times alone, including getting to Game 7 of the NLCS in 2018. The Rockies, on the other hand, haven’t made it to the NLCS since 2007, which is their only time in the NLCS or World Series. They also last made the playoffs in 2018.
The Brewers, even with the Cardinals and Cubs trying to be competitive in the NL Central, still are the favorites for the division or, at least, a Wild Card spot.
The Rockies finished the 2021 season with a 74-87 record but they believe that they just “need more pieces” to be a playoff-contending team.
The Milwaukee Brewers and Colorado Rockies are unlikely trade partners because of their circumstances.
With the differences, the Colorado Rockies and Milwaukee Brewers are not a match made in heaven for the Rockies being a buyer.
After the lockout ends, the Colorado Rockies need at least one power bat, an infielder (preferably a shortstop), at least one outfielder, and some bullpen help. Arguably, they also need some help in the starting rotation, another outfielder, and they need to make some trades or signings to help their depth as it is very thin nearly everywhere.
After all, there’s a reason why their Triple-A team finished with a .446 winning percentage and their Double-A team finished with a .331 winning percentage.
However, there are still four Milwaukee Brewers players that the Colorado Rockies should examine further as trade targets.
