The countdown is on, but the all-star break usually brings talks to a close for a few days as well.
The Brewers seem to be the only team willing to discuss deals on this weekend, as Prince Fielder and Corey Hart are available for the right price.
Fielder, looking for a Teixeira type deal in two years, is being scouted by the Angels and Giants.
Hart, having a career year, is also being looked at by the Giants and Braves, as Atlanta tries to get a bigger lead in the division.
David Bush is also being looked at by the Mets according to some reports. The Mets would love to add a pitcher, maybe a Ted Lilly, but have looked at David Bush as a back-up plan.
No trades until after the break, but the Brewers have decided they are all-but out, and will be the first to deal starting Thursday.
