    Jocketty Ready to Buy...

    http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...295276699-1059

    Just saw this article, and thought i'd post it. Something I think is interesting is I feel like Jocketty has always been quick to say they will probably sit still in the past. So while he's not saying they will definitely do something, I think its at least worth noting that he's considering it a possibility. Seems different than his answers in the past to me, but maybe its just me.

    "Another note: Gomes told me yesterday that Rolen and Cabrera congratulate teammates for 10-pitch ABs that end in outs, and for sacrificing themselves to get runners over. Gomes said hes never been on a team that did that, not even the World Series Rays." -PD

    I have to say my favorite is when Lloyd's hands are freezing and Harry has on two pairs of gloves.

    Nothing like a little Dumb & Dumber to turn this into a truly great topic.

    I think he generally plays his cards tight-doesnt want to come right out and say we are desperate at a few postions and need something. I think most GMs see through it-at least a little bit- but it does give a little breathing room to negotiate. You dont go into a car dealership and tell them you have no ride and need something immediately, that gives them the upper hand as the one with power.

    I don't think he'll trade for a big name prospect. He didn't want to give up any good prospects last year for Cliff Lee so why would he for shields or jimnez? lol doesn't make any sense
