According to Tom Haudricourt, Brewers GM Doug Melvin is considering trying to lock up some of the team’s young players to multiyear deals. Haudricourt suggests the targets may be Corey Hart, Prince Fielder, and Rickie Weeks – who are all arbitration eligible after the ’08 season.
As Haudricourt suggests, Melvin may not find it easy to sign Fielder. Prince is represented by Scott Boras and should boast a very strong resume after the ’08 season. The current Ryan Howard situation will be a comparable here.
