Brewers shopping Braun?

Posted on: November 10, 2010 12:00 am
Ryan Braun While Prince Fielder is the Brewer most expect to be traded this offseason,'s Peter Gammons tells NESN's Red Sox Hot Stove Live that Milwaukee may shop Ryan Braun, and if so, the Red Sox would be very interested.

Braun hit .304/.386/.501 with 25 home runs in 2010, similar to his four-year career numbers of .307/.364/.554. He's signed through 2015. He'll make just $4 million in 2012.

If the Brewers do deal him, they'd likely be seeking a king's ransom for such a productive, young (27 next week) player under contract for several more years.

Gammons said the Red Sox aren't likely a match for Fielder, because agent Scott Boras has said any team looking to sign his client to an extension will be looking for a Mark Teixeira-like contract.

Brewers shopping Braun?

HAHA!!!! Yah Right! This cant be true at all. Why would the Brewers trade a young Star outfielder still under contract for 5 years. Braun isnt going anywhere. This is just ESPN BS to try to stir things up
