Hot Stove Report: Lind Trade Talks Have Made “Substantial Progress”

Lind

After a couple of days of speculation, it appears as though the rumored trade of Adam Lind that began bubbling publicly on Day 1 of the Winter Meetings might finally come to a head on Day 3 of the same.

The original tweet by FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal back on Monday said this:

And after not quite 36 hours, Rosenthal’s colleague tweeted this pair of Lind updates in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

As for what the Brewers could be getting in return? Obviously nothing is done yet, and this is pure speculation, but the name D.J. Peterson was mentioned by several people back on Monday as a piece that could make sense in a deal for Lind. After all, we are keenly aware of the Brewers deficiency in corner infield prospects. I’m of the belief that Peterson certainly wouldn’t be enough by himself, if he’s involved at all.

David Stearns told beat writers in Nashville at the Winter Meetings that he wasn’t prone to deals at 1 or 2 a.m. but hopefully we’ll get at least an update on this situation once the sun rises over Music City.

Sure wish the Brewers didn’t feel the need to trade Lind away. We finally found a stable 1st baseman an excellent defender, and is good at the plate as well. I really wish they would keep him, but It’s looking more and more like youth is what Stearns is after. It’s going to be a long wait for us to be a true contender again.
