Dare to dream: who might be available by the deadline, and what teams could step up with the right package and make a deal? Keep the Hot Stove League action going alongside the National League.
I'll start things rolling with one example. From Peter Gammons' latest column on ESPN ( http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/gammons/story?id=2055896 ):
"The Brewers face an interesting situation when Prince Fielder is ready to come up, perhaps this September. Lyle Overbay is established as a premium first baseman (a 1.139 OPS a month into this season) who will likely be available in what would have to be a major trade, since Overbay won't be arbitration-eligible until after next season."
I'm not convinced by Gammons that the Brewers would make an Overbay deal till this offseason, but it's still worth speculating. Could a Yusmeiro Petit-centered package net Overbay (maybe by adding in one each of Cameron/Floyd, Seo/Heilman, Anderson/Cairo/Valent)? There may be better matches from the Brewers' perspective out there (Dodgers? Braves? who else might be in the hunt for a young line-drive-hitting 1B?).
