Brewers’ GM admits mistake on Jonathan Schoop trade

Jonathan Schoop

When you’re a general manager, it’s inevitable that you’re going to make a trade that doesn’t work out. Rarely, though, does one own up to it like Milwaukee Brewers general manager David Stearns did on Friday.

Stearns admitted that his move to acquire Jonathan Schoop from the Baltimore Orioles didn’t work, and even took full responsibility for its failure.

The Brewers acquired Schoop hoping he could be a regular middle infielder for them. After the trade, however, he hit just .202 in 46 games and went 0-for-8 in the playoffs. Perhaps Stearns could have seen it coming since Schoop’s old team had benched him a month before trading him, but the admission is better late than never.
