Rumor mill excitement for this Wednesday for all to enjoy:
-The Yanks are in on Conine. More interest is always better. Let's roll out the welcome mat for an A-ball arm.
-Texieria to the Braves seem likely. Saltalamacchia and an arm the likely 'windfall'. These are the kinds of deal Cox and co always manage to pull out of their hat. I wouldn't be shocked to see Big Tex re-up with the Braves despite talk of wanting to play in Baltimore.
-Octavio Dotel for Wilson Betemit? Maybe so. Depends on how much the Dodgers want the reliever.
-The Mariners might deal Richie Sexon to make room for Adam Jones in the OF. I'm sure the Reds are in on this deal </sarcasm>
-Konerko might be on the move to the Halos, which would spell doom for any Dunn to LA rumors. They are our best match in my opinion, so if anyone wants Dunn gone, they'd better root for the Pale hose not to do this deal.
-The Nats are supposedly looking to add seasoned vets who project at 'A' type compensation free agents, just for the draft picks. Interesting strategy....I guess.
-The Yanks aren't interested in trading Joba Chamberlain. He's only a notch below Phil Hughes [supposedly] in Cashman's eyes. If a team is interested in prospects from the Yanks, start with Tabata apparently as Joba is off the table.
-Robinson Cano for Jon Garland anyone? How many times have we heard Garland for Griffey? Maybe Kenny Williams finally makes a deal instead of just blathering on and on about Ozzie Guillen.
-Kielty is an option to replace Wily Mo Pena in Boston. Oh my how the mighty have fallen.
-Livan Hernandez is on the block....AGAIN.
-The Braves still want another pitcher. Apparently Wayne and JS don't have one anothers cell phone numbers, or Kyle Lohse can't be pawned off at all.
-Jermaine Dye to the Brewers? How many OFers does one team need?
-Manny Delcarmen is available, Wayne must be salivating at the thought of another bullpen move.
-The Mets want Conine too. Apparently the loss of Julio Franco skewed their age too young and they miss someone getting a discount at Denny's.
-The Phillies want Lohse, but won't give up much. Well thats ok, we didn't give up much to get him, so why not.
Discuss, enjoy, roll your eyes.
