The relatively quiet Boston Red Sox front office has talked with the Milwaukee Brewers about acquiring veteran outfielder Jim Edmonds, according to’s Adam McCalvy.

This is perhaps the most feasible and sensible of all potential trades reportedly involving the Red Sox. The 40-year-old Edmonds is only under contract through this season at a very affordable $850,000 and is enjoying his best year since 2004 when the lefty posted a 1061 OPS for the St. Louis Cardinals.

On the Brewers’ 2010 campaign, Edmonds is hitting .289 with 8 homers and an 866 OPS. Defensively, Edmonds and his 17.1 UZR/150 rank 7th among all active outfielders with at least 350 innings this year.
