Brewers Notes: Weeks, Free Agency, Trades

We've already heard that the Brewers are leaning toward keeping Prince Fielder this offseason. Here are the rest of the day's Brewers rumors:

  • Rickie Weeks is open to discussing an extension with the Brewers, according to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy. Jon Heyman of SI.com reported yesterday that the Brewers were set to start talking about a potential deal with the second baseman.
  • The Brewers will not pursue free agent starters aggressively, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). Instead, they'll look to add pitching through trades. Acquiring top starters without dealing Fielder will be a major challenge for GM Doug Melvin.

Not it they move a guy named Ryan Braun.

I’m actually kind of guessing they’d love to get out from under the potential Hindenburg that IS Prince Fielder. The fact that they haven’t been able to move him yet is telling.

How would moving Ryan Braun be at all a logical move?

Brew crew, the Phils will give you Joe Blanton! Cheap!

Sorry Melvin, you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Especially with Fielder still on the team 😉

If they don’t want to move Prince and extend Weeks I think Lawrie could be their best trade chip. I would imagine they could get an MLB ready pitching prospect from a team needing a good hitting prospect.

If not Lawrie the only legitimate piece is either Gamel or McGehee. I would have to think McGehee is more enticing to other teams than Gamel at this point.

Well, at least the Cubs got a really good return for McG… they did what? Aww, !@#$.

As long as the Brew-Crew are back in contending form when Braun is a free agent he should sign and stay with the Crew for life. We need to see that in baseball more often.
