Todd Coffey Milwaukee Brewers Pitcher Contract Talks

Looks like Milwaukee Brewers' Todd Coffey is trying to get the most bang for his buck on his contract with the Milwaukee Brewers. Coffey is looking for almost twice as much as the Brewers are willing to shell out on this deal. In the 2009 season, he was the most improved pitcher on the Brewers roster and he's looking to cash in on last years performance.

Brewers Finalizing Deals, Welcoming New Pitcher

The New Year is upon us and fans are starting to itch for the baseball season to start. The Milwaukee Brewers lineup is expanding every day and fans have some great players to look forward to seeing out at Miller Park this year.

The Brewers have solidified deals with both Rickie Weeks and Carlos Gomez and finalized one year contracts with each to evade salary arbitration. Second baseman Weeks will be running the team $2.75 million for the 2010 season. Prior to his season-ending tendon tear in May of 2009, he hit .272 with nine homeruns and 24 RBIs in just 37 games. Centerfielder Gomez came to Milwaukee from the trade for JJ Hardy with the Minnesota Twins. His deal for 2010 will be for $1.1 million.

Milwaukee also welcomes new teammate and left handed pitcher Doug Davis. The supposed terms of his one year deal are a $4.25 million salary and a 2011 mutual option. The Brewers bullpen has really shaped up during the offseason and Davis will be joining other pitching veteran Randy Wolf.

Brewers Pitcher Ben Sheets looks to the Cubs for a contract

Word on the street is that Milwaukee Brewers' pitcher Ben Sheets contacted the Chicago Cubs. He's looking for a big time contract that would take care of him for a couple of years. It's doubtful that it will happen seeing that there are some solid MLB pitchers still out in the open market. Sheets being prone to injury could easily scare off any team. He may want to look for a contract that is heavy on incentives, and lighter on guarantees. It's time for this old Brewers pitcher to show his worth.
