heart is two sizes two small

I can't pinpoint Yelich's value but his contract is pretty bad and a good example of how "sign your guys before they hit free agency" isn't the magic solution some people think it is.I tried to run it through BTV but surprisingly, Yelich is listed at -126.4 trade value, which means that Yelich plus both Burnes (78.3) and Woodruff (37.8) is still a negative trade value. That doesn't seem right - Yelich has underplayed his contract but he's not that bad. Does anyone have a more accurate idea on what a realistic trade for either would look like? Would a headliner of Whitlock/Houck + Casas get it done?
The Brewers extended him in the spring of 202, when he was 28, coming off seasons where he was 2nd and 1st in MVP, and two full seasons away from free agency. In three seasons since, he has put up OPS+ of 110, 101, and 111, while having negative defensive value at a position very low on the defensive spectrum (LF). And they owe Yelich 26 million a year for the next six seasons, plus a 6.5 mil buyout in year 7.
