With the Winter Meetings already underway, Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel asked Brewers GM, Doug Melvin, if he was going to meet with Prince Fielder's agent, Scott Boras, and he said, “I don't know. I don't have plans on it.”
If that means the Brewers are moving on even though Fielder's market is shrinking, as Haudricourt points out, they will probably give Mat Gamel a shot at first base. If Gamel fails, Haudricourt says that a “contingency plan” for the Brewers could be moving Casey McGehee from third to first base.
Fielder hit .299/.415/.566 with 38 HR's and 120 RBI's in 569 AB's for the Brewers in 2011.
