The White Sox told their fans they were going “all in” this year, but that slogan might have worked better a bit further north. Brewers GM Doug Melvin has traded prospect after prospect since last season in an attempt to reinforce his club for a run at the playoffs.

The Brewers lead the NL Central with a 66-50 record. Which of their recent trades was the best one?
