    Jr. wants to play for the Rays?

    straight from mlbtraderumors.com

    Heyman's Latest: Griffey, Garcia, Sabathia
    SI.com's Jon Heyman has a new column up.

    Ken Griffey Jr. is reportedly telling friends that the Rays are his preference if he is to be traded. He'd be close to his Orlando home, always a major consideration for him. Heyman says Junior would prefer to be dealt after the All-Star game. It's not known whether the Rays have interest in Griffey, though.
    Freddy Garcia hit 85 mph in a recent session. It's been suggested he could be in the Majors by late August.
    Heyman talked to a "hopeful competing GM" who expects C.C. Sabathia to be traded.

    Why would they want him? Nothing against him but he doesn't bring much to a winning ball club these days. I guess they could put him at DH.

    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Since I can't start my own thread...

    Glavine looks to be out until after the All-Star break if not longer. With Smoltz already down, I think at this point Arroyo's value to the braves who have had serious intrest in him has to be at an all time high... They have some top end pitching prospects at AA. I would think we could pry one away for him...

    Just a though.

    Griffey considering waiving no trade clause for trade to Rays

    Per the Breaking News feature on ESPNews...

    Ken Griffey, Jr is considering waiving his no trade clause for a trade to Tampa Bay. I am looking for a link now.

    What would we get from Tampa Bay that would help the team we have right now? Do we need to add more youngsters to this already very young group or do we got for a few veterans that might have some helpful sage advice?

    I think we'd deal him for a young player and during the offseason package a few together for a guy with a track record.

    The only thing that Griffey will bring us in trade is salary relief.
