Which Slugger Will Milwaukee Trade?

Don't be shocked if Fielder is gone soon - JSOnline: "It's the only way the Brewers will trade Fielder before July 31. If Melvin gets exactly what he wants, Fielder will be moved. Otherwise, talks will be tabled until the off-season.
Rightfielder Corey Hart presents a more interesting dilemma because his trade value never will be higher than now, after the best first half of his career. Like Fielder, Hart can be a free agent after the 2011 season. And, also like Fielder, Hart's agent always has valued his client more highly than the club."

If other teams see Hart's efforts as just streakiness, his trade value won't change much between now and this winter. If the BRewers don't deal Fielder in the next 13 days, then he will be the dominant theme of trade rumors like Roy Halladay was last winter and Johan Santana the winter before.
