MVP style slugger with one year left on his contract. What do you do? LOCK HIM UP! Look what the Yankees did with their stars, 10 year deals to both A-Rod and Derek Jeter! The Yankees may have a gargantuan amount of money compared to the Brewers payroll-wise. This is what the Brewers should do: Get your stinking pitching and use the rest of your payroll for the season to lock up your stars. If you want a Pennant or World series ring-bearing season and not a Washington Nationals-like season, then I suggest you LOCK HIM UP Brewers! This is of utter importance so think of this: Wouldn't it suck if when Kevin Youkilis's contract is up that the Bo-Sox signed Fielder to a long year deal, and he had a slugger year with 50+ HRs, 150+RBIs, and .300+AVG for the Season? Yes, it would suck.
