Brewers To Decline Jenkins' Option

Geoff Jenkins for $9MM?  The Brewers prefer the $1MM buyout.  Tom Haurdricourt says the Brewers never seriously considered exercising it, though Jeff Sackmann has shown it isn't a no-brainer.

Haurdricourt believes the Brewers will go for a one-year stopgap left fielder rather than move Bill Hall or Ryan Braun there or promote Matt La Porta.  Barry Bonds would be an intriguing if unexpected addition.  Guys like Cliff Floyd, Luis Gonzalez, Shannon Stewart, or Brad Wilkerson could be considered.  Or Doug Melvin could even try to pry Adam Dunn away from the division-rival Reds.

As for Jenkins, the Tigers seem to be the early favorite.
