According to Tony Jackson of ESPN Los Angeles, the Dodgers and Brewers are discussing a trade that would send Prince Fielder to LA and James Loney and Jonathan Broxton to Milwaukee.

Sounds like a really good deal for the Dodgers, who would get an established slugger that's only 26 in exchange for a first baseman with no power and a closer that lost his job this past season. We do think Broxton has a good shot to returning to elite closer status, but it would still be a great get for the Dodgers, who are looking to add more thunder to their lineup. Yahoo's Steve Henson reports that the Dodgers have "zero" interest in Fielder, so we'll see if this has legs.

"The Dodgers have zero interest in Fielder" according to Yahoo via Twitter.

I would jizz gallons but Ned shot the rumor down so it's kind of hard to maintain any hope. Our GM is probably meeting with Ray Durham right now.

Also have heard Fielder for Broxton-Loney, as reported by @espnla. Source says #Brewers, #Dodgers have not spoken at meetings. MORE #MLB

Not looking to have any legs. Unless Ned is trying to avoid tampering, etc. But it is almost clear this rumor is a dud.

This would have been an awful trade for the Brewers.

Glad it won't be happening though, even though the Brewers are in our division

read it carefully he says they have no interest in trading for fielder, no where does he say hes not willing to do loney for fielder

If he is not interested in trading for Fielder then why would he trade for Fielder?

Well I wouldn't give Ned the WOAT if Melvin is willing to trade Fielder for Loney. I'm not sure which is worse.

#Dodgers source on how much legitimacy there is to Fielder-to-Dodgers' talks: "Zero." #Brewers #MLB

Rumor is a dud for sure imo

Prince would be better off in the AL as a DH.

I cant even begin to picture him in a few years with his size trying to do anything in the field.
