Brad Nelson has opted for free agency, and while I'm a bit sad to see him go, as I think he's fairly talented, this was probably the smart move for him. While he's still young at 26, he is old for a prospect, and he is likely blocked at every position he can play for the foreseeable future as long as he was in the Brewer organization. Even if Corey Hart were to move to center on Mike Cameron's departure, that spot is likely destined for Matt Gamel.
Good luck to Brad. I expect he will be getting a call from a certain Seattle baseball club in the near future.
