Its a very strong rumor and one source comes from someone in the know.

If this is true, you have scooped the media because there is nothing out there on this.

Strange that they'd part with Baez for a rental but even in his "big" year his OBP sits at .299 so maybe this rumor has legs. Montgomery with only 13ks in 23 innings this year.

I didn't say it was true..I did say it is a rumor but a strong one from a very knowledgable insider.

Ummm....Roy is in the media.....right?

Personally, I'm not a fan of the thread title, as it implies a deal is done and imminent, which I am skeptical of.  I think it more likely (somewhat) that the Cubs are offering that deal and the Orioles may be considering it.

Nothing about the thread title is misleading or untrue. There IS a rumor of this by the Cubs and the source is a name familiar to all of you...but its NOT Palmer.

I'm not questioning your integrity Roy, just the legitimacy of the rumor.  I just don't believe that a deal has been agreed upon, as your thread title/the rumor suggests.

If its true that the Cubs would offer Baez and Mike Montgomery plus another pitching prospect for Manny, I would take that deal. Baez is a a solid second baseman, and you could move Schoop to SS or 3b if they do acquire Baez. (Maybe acquire Moustakas down the road too)I like Montgomery too and I know him well. He came to my house for a baseball seminar and was the only player of the 16 prospects at my house who wrote a hand written thank you note for allowing my house to be used for a meeting.I have NO interest in Addison Russell who looks like a troubled kid with a suspicion of domestic violence. But then, thats never stopped us before...remember Frankie Rodriguez.

Yuck.  I want no part of Baez.  Just more of the same - power with no OBP.  Try to get Happ instead...

Would much rather go the Cards route and try for one of Flaherty/Reyes/Weaver + Tyler O'Neill + Gyorko. Probably already missed any chance for Flaherty - if it even existed. O'Neill is up and mashing.

Yeah, Baez is another OBP slug. Montgomery also has settled in as a pretty generic looking reliever. Would need Happ.

I don't take it as an affront to my "integrity" either..but nothing about the title is inaccurate. Its a strong RUMOR but it never says the deal is done or imminent. I will say the person who told me that might have inside information.
