Hot Stove Report – Source: Brewers/Hart Actively Working Toward Agreement

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Milwaukee Brewers

A source just messaged me to say that free agent Corey Hart and the Milwaukee Brewers have been “actively working” toward a contract agreement pretty much all day. This is a deal that is being “hammered out” still, but that both sides appear “motivated” to get it done.

As I’ve said numerous times cross-platform, this would solve the biggest single need for the Brewers with a player they know and are comfortable with, both in terms of clubhouse fit and on-field production. Hart took back to first base like a metaphor in which something was away from something else for a while but then went back to it in a seamless and easy transition.

Could things still fall apart? Until the physical is passed and the contract is signed, anything is possible. But this would be a continued relationship that makes sense on both sides of the table.

As there is still some back and forth here, I don’t have any contract specifics to provide at this time. I’ll update if I hear something though. I had previously reported that the Brewers were preparing to offer a one-year deal having a low-base salary with heavy incentives. There are no indications yet from my source as to where current negotiations are at other than that they’re still fluid at last check.

Do you get paid to write crap like that?

No, I don’t. Do you get paid to misunderstand a joke and comment on blogs like you’re better than the writer?

Yes, actually, I do.

Good for you then. Enjoy your spoils.

Apparently very critical English Lit majors like to critique sports stories. I thought that was saved for more well off sports fans like Polo and Cricket.
I happen to enjoy the Brewer Nation reports without having the urge to go Hemingway on their content.
Keep up the good work Brewer Nation!

Hemingway was American; English Lit majors probably wouldn’t study him. W.B. Yeats, probably, even though he’s Scottish, Donne, for sure, and Milton.
