Great day for Dave Dombrowski, landing Tyler Thornburg, who had a dominant breakout season for the Brewers, and then Chris Sale, the biggest prize of the offseason. Sure, Yoan Moncada looks like a future star, but Michael Kopech is a huge wild card and the Red Sox get a Cy Young contender on a team-friendly contract for the next three seasons.

I do hate the Travis Shaw pickup for what it means for Hernan Perez's role. The Brewers have enough young outfielders on the way that Perez looks destined for a utility role, which is bad for his fantasy value; he gets much of it from volume of PAs.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Big advantage of the Brewers' acquisition of Travis Shaw: Jonathan Villar is likely to now see the majority (if not all) of his PAs at second base, giving him rare 2B/3B/SS fantasy eligibility quickly in 2017. Villar is the only player in history to steal 50 or more bases in a season in which he made at least 10 appearances at each of those three infield positions.

Market for Ryan Braun has to heat up

Braun is certainly available, and he should be attracting big interest despite his baggage. "If people really watched him play this year, I'd think they should be lining up to take a run at that guy," said one exec. Stark: Winter meetings shopping guide

If you've wondered whether Chris Carter was the first HR champ to get nontendered...correct! ESPN Stats & Info says the only thing close is the 1974 White Sox selling Dick Allen to the Braves because he said he was going to retire. Then the Phillies talked him into unretiring.

A spokesperson for Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser told Outside the Lines the mayor signed a bill Wednesday banning smokeless tobacco at the city's sports venues, including Nationals Park. With Milwaukee expected to follow suit, at least 40 per cent of big league ballparks are likely to have legal prohibitions in place by next season, apart from the new MLB/MLBPA labor agreement's ban to apply only to new major leaguers.

Prospects a priority for Brewers

That means Ryan Braun could actually get dealt this offseason. Milwaukee is rebuilding, so the team's focus should be on adding as many good, young players and future trade assets as possible. Bowden: Top targets, fallbacks (Insider)

The Brewers have non-tendered Chris Carter, who tied for the NL lead with 41 home runs, but struck out 206 times and is best suited for DH. Bottom five teams in first base production in 2016: Marlins, Rangers, Astros, Yankees, Nationals. Could also land in Toronto if Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista both end up signing elsewhere.
