Brewers Done Until After Holidays

It looks like the Brewers won't be making any moves prior to the holidays. General Manager Doug Melvin revealed on Sunday that the team was interested in pitcher Braden Looper, but also said that nothing is close. He echoed those statements earlier today, saying that doesn't think anything will happen with the free agent righty. "I think he's going to wait until after the holiday, too. Players are all still looking for multiyear deals and waiting for other players to sign," said the GM.

Melvin also addressed the issue of lefty closer Brian Fuentes. The Brewers have targeted him, but nothing appears close. In fact, Melvin described his dealings with Fuentes' agent, Rick Thurman, as "talks" and not "negotiations." MLB.com's Adam McCalvy takes this to mean that the Brewers have not yet submitted an offer. Still, Melving says that he doesn't expect the team to get Fuentes.
