Josh Fogg & Bronson Arroyo seem to be on the Rockies mind as they are in buying mode.
Also we have heard that the Yankees are interested in Arroyo as well.. Seattle is asking for Melky Cabrera and Brett Gardner for Jarrod Washburn.Quote:
SI.com's Jon Heyman spoke to Rockies GM Dan O'Dowd, who now says a trade of Matt Holliday or Brian Fuentes is "highly unlikely." He talked to multiple teams about both players, but hasn't found a match. Holliday could instead be shopped in the offseason.
The Rockies are in buying mode, hoping to land a back-end starter. Heyman mentions Josh Fogg and Paul Byrd. We've also seen Justin Duchscherer and Bronson Arroyo named in reports.
Fish are eyeing David Ross and lefthanded relief help..Quote:
SI.com's Jon Heyman seems to be saying the Mariners are still asking for Melky Cabrera and Brett Gardner, though many think one of them would be plenty.
Little to no movement expected by Dusty BakerQuote:
With 57 games left, the Marlins want to make sure they have more behind the plate than John Baker and Paul Hoover. The Marlins have talked to teams about catchers, and some of the names that have been mentioned in rumors are Cincinnati's David Ross and Colorado's Yorvit Torrealba, with whom the Marlins negotiated during the offseason when Torrealba was a free agent.
The Marlins also are looking for left-handed relief help."
Still, Baker said he doesn't anticipate much movement, if any, with his club.
"I don't anticipate anything, unless somebody comes along with something that'll knock your socks off," Baker said. "Right now, there are a lot of people wanting to take some of our guys. It's cherry picking time, and they won't give you a whole bunch back.
"They say, 'Well, we'll take the salary off your hands. We're going places.' But we're trying to go places, too."
