First off, I do not want to talk about last night in this thread! If anyone wants a explanation please go to the Rants section and read my post.

Now with that said I must start off ny saying For what it's worth..... I have spoken with my guy at length today and everyone still feels very positive about the things that happened at the meetings. Now I won't get into any specifics right now but we have " more then a few good offers" on the table for many of our players, most notably Bedard, Tejada, and Roberts.

I can't say exactly what my guy is saying right now because I want some more information gathering before I post any specifics. I will however tell you that based on MY OPINION as well as the things I have been told, I predict that Bedard still goes to the Dodgers, Roberts goes to the Cubs, and Tejada goes to the Angels.

The FO obviously would have liked to made a deal by now but at the same time we want the right deal. We believe that we are getting much closer to getting the players that we originally wanted from the targeted teams. With that said and I will quote my guy here, "we might be a day or two away or we might be a couple of weeks away, but rest assured we will make some good trades before we are ready to field the team." I asked if he thought it would be before the holidays and he said that they are hoping so.

So, when I know more and I feel that it is the right time to post I will relay the information to everyone on the board.

Now, if you don't like reading what I have posted please put me on ignore as I will do the same for the people I don't want to be reading. BUT please do not ***** and complain about it on the board and keep this board the best that there is!!!!!

Thanks as always Belkast.

I always appreciate any information you can give us, and I understand that a lot of it is rumors.

As always, I will take this for what it's worth. Much appreciated.

This is what I figured. Sounds positive about the offers we have, and we need to sort thru all the different offers.

Thanks as always Belkast! Most of us appreciate your information.

Thank you Belkast.

Do you know of any implications internally to the Gibbons situation?

Also, do you know anything about the less players (Mora, Millar, Huff) being moved?

I know they are waiting for the right deal and I am confident all 3 (Bedard, Tejada, and Roberts) will be gone.

Thanks Belkast - FRom someone that has been reading for years but just recently just started posting I love to see the insiders posts! Not because I believe everything that you say is going to come true but it gives us an idea of what the front office wants to get from some of our guys and as always its very interesting to hear about the trades that were taked about but never went down like the tejada trade to the Astros last year! :D:D:D

    • I would put not trading Britton, Manny and Brach after 2016 above all of these though.
    • As moronic as the Britton decision was, that team wasn’t all that great, so they don’t go far anyway. Manny could have made a huge difference.  Who knows?  McLouth homer could change the series but they still would have likely lost in the playoffs and probably that series.  
    • I take yellow, because that would have had positive ramifications for several years, whereas blue, which is second place, maybe gets us past KC (maybe, as w were swept) and maybe gives us a chance against the Giants in the WS.  Yellow for me.
    • Orioles did offer Cruz a contract, IIRC.  I believe they offered him a 3-year deal, which seemed reasonable considering his age.  It was a bit of a surprise that he got a 4-year deal from Seattle.  There really wasn't much of an outcry over the Orioles not going 4 years.  It seemed like a prudent decision at the time.
    • I understand.  I just think he was decent here in 1990 and decent in Houston in 1991, I'm not sure why he wasn't more highly regarded by both teams.  I agree he wasn't an obvious HoFer until his late 20s.   I think Finley was great.  An OF of Brady, Devo and Finley in the 90s would have been borderline elite defensively.  But he, too, really didn't kick into gear until his late 20s and early 30s.  And while I don't think he was ever named in the Mitchell report, it wouldn't have surprised me if he was using. Glenn Davis was very good, probably tied with Will Clark and Jack Clark as the preeminent slugging first baseman in the NL in the late 80s.   
    • I don't think Schilling is a deranged lunatic.  He has some unpopular opinions that he does a poor job of expressing.  IMO, a deranged lunatic is someone who's dangerous to himself and others in society, I don't see Schilling being that guy. That said, I'd gladly have whatever "stain" Schilling has over Davis.  I'd take 26 Ty Cobbs (cue @DrungoHazewood "He wasn't that bad of a guy!  The Al Stump book was lies!") on this team if it meant we would win.
