BraunAccording to MetsBlog.coms Matthew Cerrone, citing people familiar with the teams thinking, there is a better chance the Brewers trade OF Ryan Braun for Mets 1B Ike Davis than deal OF Norichika Aoki.

Theres little doubt the Brewers are looking for first-base help after seeing the Major Leagues worst production at the position in 2013. And general manager Doug Melvin even acknowledged the Mets as a potential trade partner during the GM meetings last week.

The Brewers, meanwhile, have a crowded outfield picture, with Braun, Aoki and Carlos Gomez standing in the way of 25-year-old Khris Davis (not to be confused with Orioles slugger Chris Davis), who flourished during Brauns suspension late in the 2013 season.

If the Brewers are eager to get a fresh start without the disgraced face of their franchise, Braun could present a tremendous opportunity for any club willing to overlook his indiscretions and pick him up at the nadir of his value.
