Brian Sabean is in Milwaukee. Is a deal with the Brewers afoot?

Jul 6, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

Andrew Baggarly of the Merc reports that Giants GM Brian Sabean met up with the team in Milwaukee yesterday. One of two possibilities: (a) he’s there to scout and discuss a deal with the Brewers; or (b) he brought along the proton packs in order to bust the ghosts over at the Pfister. Assuming for a second that he’s not battling Zuul or the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, what could he be thinking about accomplishing with the Brewers?

One possibility is Prince Fielder.  There are no reports of any progress on the contract extension front and now that Barry Zito is cool with it — whew! — the Prince might fit in quite nicely at first base for the Giants. A more realistic possibility is Corey Hart. It’s been reported that the Giants are “very interested” in him. Worth noting, however, that people who know the Giants better are saying a deal is not likely anytime soon.

Still, it’s worth noting Sabean’s presence in Milwaukee.  Word on the street is that he’s a hard man to reach. If he’s making himself available like this it must be for a good reason, right?

    A very much hope he takes Corey Hart, at the apex of his hot streak, off the Brewers’ hands. And, since Sabean doesn’t like Buster Posey, is the balancing half of the trade.
    I can see this happening.

    Whatttt there’s no way Buster Posey for Corey Hart…
    But if it does happen…I guess that’s cool

    Rays need to go after Fielder if he is really available. Pena has been inconsisten this year and they have the chips to get him. Then let him leave when he asks for to much and take the Type A package. They will definitely come out negative prospect wise at the end, but he could be a big part of a run this year.
