Baseball Blogs Weigh In: Bay, Holliday, Hudson, Ca

On this date 27 years ago, Adrian Gonzalez was born. The former first overall pick by the Marlins has been traded twice. He was originally dealt to the Rangers in a deal that sent Ugueth Urbina to the Marlins. Later he was dealt to the Padres along with Chris Young for Adam Eaton and Akinori Otsuka. As we enter the second month of the season, let's take a look at what is being written in the Blogosphere...

Brewers Not Talking Trades

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel checked in with Brewers GM Doug Melvin and heard that the Brewers aren't talking trades with any team. Jayson Stark heard rumblings that the Yankees could be interested in Mike Cameron again, but Melvin said: "We're not talking trade with any team now."

Melvin said he spoke on the phone in general terms today without bringing Cameron's name up. Melvin also said the Astros haven't inquired about trading for a third baseman.

Stark On Cameron, Ohman, Jenkins

ESPN's Jayson Stark has a new blog post up.

  • The Astros plan to give Chris Johnson a chance to win the third base job, but Stark says Juan Uribe, Jose Bautista, and Jeff Baker "could still show up on their shopping list in the next two weeks."
  • Stark heard "rumblings the Yankees are poking around again on Mike Cameron's availability." Back in December, the Yanks and Brewers were pretty close on a deal.
  • Eric Milton is looking decent and appears to be the frontrunner for the Dodgers' fifth starter job (given Pedro Martinez's asking price).
  • Will Ohman seeks a one-year, $1.75MM deal with easily-reachable incentives for another million.  He also prefers the West Coast, and Stark believes the Padres and Giants are more likely than the Dodgers.  Like the Dodgers, the Phillies and Marlins have interest at a lesser price.  Stark has also heard the Phils connected to Giants lefty Jack Taschner.
  • Shawn Camp, Geoff Geary, John Buck, and Geoff Jenkins are currently available.  The Phillies would eat almost all of the $8MM owed to Jenkins.

Brewers No Longer Interested In Dunn

MLB.com's Adam McCalvy spoke to Brewers GM Doug Melvin, who indicated the team is no longer interested in free agent slugger Adam Dunn.  The possibility was considered when the Brewers were discussing a Mike Cameron trade with the Yankees (Corey Hart would've moved to center field).  Cameron and Hart are staying put.

Another scenario, which Ken Rosenthal discussed a week ago, is trading Prince Fielder and replacing him with Dunn.  McCalvy doesn't dismiss the idea outright, but notes that the Crew would be treading water in terms of lefthanded bats.

Brewers Rumors: Sheets, Cameron, Swisher

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has the latest from Brewers GM Doug Melvin on the team's plans:

  • We already knew Melvin doesn't anticipate signing a free agent starter.
  • Derek Lowe isn't an option for the Brewers, who haven't even talked to Scott Boras.
  • The Brewers will monitor the trade market and consider dealing for a starter.
  • The team could make an exception for Ben Sheets. Melvin said he'd have to consider signing the pitcher if he wanted to return to Milwaukee.
  • Before signing Trevor Hoffman, the Brewers were looking into Juan Cruz, a Type A free agent, but didn't like the idea of giving up a first rounder, especially now that they'll only get a second round pick for losing C.C. Sabathia.
  • The Yankees still have interest in Mike Cameron and floated the idea of a Nick Swisher for Cameron swap.
  • Melvin likes Cameron's defense though, so he's "not motivated to move him."
  • After they're done with their six arbitration cases, the Brewers payroll will approach $80MM.
