    Wood scratched from AAA start???

    Travis Wood, who was supposed to start for the Bats tonight,is not in the lineup, Maloney is pitching. This could be to give him a rehab start, but maybe something else is going on...

    I've been thinking that Arroyo should be added to the DL. I think the mono thing is still affecting him.

    Wood and Arroyo are pretty similar pitchers except for throwing from different side of the mound.

    Maybe that's an approach that needs to be made. Get Bronson healthy, let Wood have a go at it.

    Classic trade deadline mixup. Guy gets bumped a day in the rotation, and whamo traded for king felix.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Wood for Felix, straight up. Mariners take that, right?

    Quite possibly.

    On the other hand, I think it's plausible that Wood is part of a trade package on the table, and they're holding him out until the deal is either made or isn't.

    I honestly think this is the case. It's no coincidence, IMHO, Upton, Span, Desmond and Ramos were all sitting the other night simultaneously.

    I think clubs do often sit players this time of year if they think there's a chance a deal will be reached.

    My hunch is they've moved Wood back a day to buy them some time if they have something in advanced discussions.

    Does that mean someone at the ML level is on the move?

    This would mean one of the Reds' holy triumvirate of pitchers is being traded if that report is accurate.
