Scratch that: Lucroy vetoes deal to the Tribe

I guess this is why you don’t jump the gun and declare a team the AL favorite before a deal is official.

ESPN’s Jim Bowden has confirmed that All-Star catcher Jonathon Lucroy has vetoed the proposed deal to the Cleveland Indians. This is a major setback for the Tribe as it had appeared they were building a team that could content deep into October. More to come on this story.

The Brewers have had a crazy two years when it comes to the trade deadline. Last year, the Mets and Brewers had a deal in place that would have sent Carlos Gomez to the Mets but after a failed physical, the deal was off, which made Wilmer Flores VERY happy.
