Was deal for Parra a good one for the Brewers?

By Matt Trebby. CREATED Jul 31, 2014

The Brewers were active ahead of Major League Baseball's trade deadline, acquiring outfielder Gerardo Parra from the Diamondbacks.

Many wanted the team to acquire a relief pitcher to bolster their bullpen, while others wanted the team to somehow get active in the sweepstakes for Jon Lester or David Price.

Arizona received a few Brewers prospects in return, neither of which being considered "can't miss" players for the team in the future.

Jeff Falconio and Greg Matzek discussed the trade and whether it is enough for the Brewers to contend for a trip to the World Series this season.
