    MLB trade rumours

    A source told Fanhouse's Jeff Fletcher that the Brewers have let it be known that Prince Fielder, Corey Hart and Rickie Weeks are all available in trade talks.

    Anyone see Fielder going anywhere?

    Re: MLB trade rumours

    The Yankees, Red Sox and Rays have told the Phillies that they would have interest in Jayson Werth if he is available, according to George A. King III of the New York Post. We heard yesterday that the Phillies, who would like to add a proven starter, are discussing possible Werth trades with ‘a lot of teams.’

    I'll betcha Brian Cashman calls about Prince Fielder. Same with the Twins. Hell, any contender not named the Rangers (already have Vlad DHing). He could be lethal as a DH in the American League.

    The phillies could have had Lee and Halladay last offseason, but opted to keep a position player didn't they?

    I don't think the Twins have room for Fielder with Morneau at first and the log jam at DH.

    Re: MLB trade rumours

    Fielder is going to want a deal north of what Howard got. That's a bunch of money for those who want to dip their toe in that market.

    The Werth rumors surprised me, until I got forwarded this today. Now it's pretty clear.

    Any thread with Fielder mentioned in it is so predictable. Someone takes a shot at his weight (hopefully funny) then someone else points out he is a vegetarian.

    Is there anyone left out there that doesn't know this miracle of nature can maintain that amazing physique without partaking of animal flesh?

    Twins wouldn't be involved. The upgrade he'd provide, big as it is isn't worth the cost it would take to get him.

    Actually, I think he is Vegan!

    I have found nothing to corroborate that. Some of the links below are somewhat dated, but even the most current one (May of this year) lists him just as vegetarian while listing other athletes as vegan.

    Can you provide a link?

    Derrek Lee told The Chicago Tribune's Paul Sullivan that he wouldn't ask Cubs' GM Jim Hendry to trade him to a contender.
