    Buzz around the front office?

    Take this for what its worth, but my "inside source" tells me that there is some trade chatter going around at the dining table, and Jeff Piecoro is bouncing around everywhere. He just rushed into the dining room saying he had something substantive that he might have to report on.

    Don't wanna get anyone's hopes up (or down), but this is the information I have been given. If I get any more I will let you know.

    Brace yourselves. Rob Mackoviak is on his way!
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    FWIW, Dunn is out of the lineup tonight. Could be because the lefty pitching or could be something else.

    HB definitely has sources. His source has been correct a few other times.

    My source wanted me to check and see if I had seen anything substantial on the internet. There is something strange going on, he just doesn't know what. I'm guessing that he won't be the first to find out whatever it is, as we will probably all find out at the same time.

    Haha I really can't. This source got rather upset with me the last time I gave up too much of his identity.

    Okay, I'm gonna guess and say it's either:

    1) Arroyo

    or

    2) Weathers/Affeldt

    with a third possibility as a longshot (if he's on the DL ??? he can't be traded, right?)

    3) Ryan Freel

    Speculate people, it's fun!

    What?! I'd do it in a heartbeat, but that would make no sense at all.

    I missed half of it but Piecoro just said something about rumors swirling of impending trades. Did anyone hear what he said?
