Wilson for Fielder?

 

I know the Cain for Fielder horse has been pretty much eviscerated, but in addition to having effectively one starting pitcher, the Brau have an almost 42 year-old closer. His numbers this year are much better than I would have predicted, but he is hardly someone they can count on forever. With Wilson, they could move him to an eighth inning role and this would make for a rather formidable back end of the bullpen. The A's have shown that moving these younger closers can be quite fruitful and that they are generally pretty replaceable. Two questions:

1) Would they even consider Wilson for Fielder straight-up or would it require a solid prospect in addition?

2) If the answer to # 1 is yes, should Sabes jump?
