    JS Online: Picking up the tab

    Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin spent much of the off-season turning down trade offers for the young players around whom he has built a contending club.

    Now, it's time to decide which of those players the Brewers would like to tie up with long-term contracts in the near future.

    "We're looking at that internally right now," said Melvin. "We're evaluating all of the contracts of our young players.

    "A lot of young players (throughout the game) have signed long-term deals recently."

    One of those players is Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who signed a six-year, $31 million deal after finishing runner-up to the Brewers' Ryan Braun for National League rookie of the year. It was a record deal for a one-year player, buying out all three of Tulowitzki's arbitration years as well as his first year of free agency.

    This makes for interesting discussion. I think the Brewers clearly should lock up Ryan Bruan and Rickie Weeks long term with the possabity of JJ Hardy, Corey Hart.

    Then for Fielder they should Try but I question if that is possable.
