The Brewers are fresh off of their first back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time since the early 80's, yet a lot of changes were expected to be made to the squad this offseason.

We've already seen the Brewers three marquee free agents sign elsewhere (Drew Pomeranz with the Padres, Yasmani Grandal with the White Sox, and Mike Moustakas with the Reds), three major league players shipped out via trade (Chase Anderson, Zach Davies and Trent Grisham), and now we'll see more players leave after not being tendered a contract by the club ahead of arbitration. 

Despite all the moves and payroll cutting, GM David Stearns urged that the team remains set on staying competitive. But what exactly does competitive mean?

Adam McCalvy of and joined Bill on Tuesday at The Fan's 13th Annual Toy Drive at Blain's Farm and Fleet to recap the non-tender deadline and what the rest of the Brewers offseason may look like:

- Will the Brewers spend big money on a legit starting pitcher?

-  Is there a way for Stearns to be a buyer, but also to restock a depleted farm system?

- What does he make of the trade rumors surrounding Josh Hader?
