Today is Lyle Overbay's 36th birthday, and it's possible he got a "happy birthday" call from the Brewer front office.

Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Brewers have contacted Overbay to discuss the possibility of a minor league deal now that they have a fresh vacancy at first base. Rosenthal says Overbay is "also talking to other clubs," but is expected to make a decision shortly. Spring training is only two weeks away, so I'd guess more or less every free agent is expected to make a decision soon.
