Even More Crazy

This time I didn't say it, but I stumbled upon an article written by Joel Sherman in Sunday's New York Post. The article was about the New York Yankees monitoring the trade market on Indians pitcher C.C. Sabathia. It's widely regarded that the Yanks could be a favorite to land C.C. especially after the recent loss of their staff ace Chien Ming Wang. Many belive the Yanks won't budge at the Indians request of the young Yankee pitchers after the Bronx Bombers refused to part with their young arms for Johan Santana this offseason. I don't care who he goes to as long as he is out of the division.

Now onto the crazy part. In the same article Sherman mentions the Milwaukee Brewers Prince Fielder as a surprise name that could emerge on the market by the July 31st trade deadline. Sherman suggests the Yankees and Mets as big players if Fielder is on the block, but also suggests the Dodgers, TWINS, and Royals as teams that could also have interest.

I'm not sure what's more weird, the fact that Sherman included the Twins or the Royals. Now there is no denying we'd love to have a bat like Fielder after Morneau (even more than Adrian Beltre!) in our lineup, but I was shocked to see the Twins mentioned. I don't know if Sherman heard something or simply thought of teams that could use some offense. First of all, Fielder would have to be the DH as Justin Morneau would win the award as the more superior defensive first baseman, but I would guess the Brewers trade demands would be quite steep.

Again, who knows how big of a rumor this is, and Fielder will most likely still be with the Brewers at the end of the season... but this one is really fun to dream about!
