Blogger: Brewers "more likely" to deal Braun than Aoki
NEW YORK - Mets blogger Matthew Cerrone mentions Ryan Braun in a trade rumor involving the Brewers and Mets.
Cerrone cites someone 'familiar with the team's thinking' who says the Brewers would be more willing to trade Braun than Nori Aoki in a deal to acquire Mets first baseman Ike Davis.
The Mets reportedly offered Davis for Aoki earlier in the offseason, but were quickly turned down.
Braun is owed $113 million over the final seven years of his contract. Cerrone speculates that the Brewers would absorb some of the money owed to Braun to make a trade happen.
