Milwaukee Brewers To trade the All-Star close, decided on Monday Josh Haider To San Diego Padres for four-player package: Fellow left-handed reliever taylor rogersoutfielder esteri ruizzoright hand dinelson lamatteAnd one possibility.
Maybe they discovered the price tag on the header extension and deemed it too high to pay, or maybe they just wanted to maximize their business value before trading it in as a rental next year.
However, the Brewers probably made the team vulnerable with the transaction, or at least it appears to have happened over the past few days.
On Thursday afternoon, they suffered a 5-4 walk-off defeat to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Yes, they badly remember Josh Haider, a four-time All-Star close who was traded to the San Diego Padres, believing they could win the NL Central without him. Probably not,” tweeted MLB insider Bob Nightingale.

Trading Header Could Be a Mistake
It is impossible to know for certain whether Milwaukee made a mistake in trading the header; Not until we see what kind of player Ruiz will be.
But as far as his 2022 chances are concerned, it could be a wrong move.
The Brewers have a narrow division lead, and have weakened their bullpen.
While Rogers is certainly good, he is no Haider.
And Williams Allowed Walk-Off Home Run Brian Reynolds On Wednesday, the Brewers suffered another significant loss.
They say that the close role is not for everyone.
Williams, a top reliever, deserves a long look out there, but he’s not off to the best start
