I think teams would prefer to sign their own players instead of new ones. So I don't think that Milwaukee is so in love with Cordero that they would trade to get him back instead of resigning Trevor Hoffman who wants to be back, will most likely be cheaper, and has been better than Cordero this season.
And Cameron has already expressed in interest in coming back:
They may have some interest in Stubbs as an eventual replacemant but let's not kid ourselves into thinking that Stubbs, right now, is better than Cameron. Making Stubbs their main centerfielder in 2010 would be a step down for Milwaukee, as far as offensive production, and I bet they know that.
A deal centered around Hardy, Stubbs, and 1-2 other Reds prospects makes more sense to me.
It's possible that Milwaukee will deal Fielder this off season for $ reasons. I don't think Cordero is in the works for the Brewers. Also, Lincoln for $2.5M is a really tough sell to anyone.
