A few things

Passing on a few things I was told my by guy today...

Lots of talk with the Pirates and there may well be a multi player deal here. Bay and Marte are two guys we've asked about.

He still thinks Tejada ends up with the Cubs. Doesn't think there's much of a chance a deal with NYY can be worked out.

Mora to Philly is a possibility. Looking at prospects in return.

Still can't find a trader for Hernandez.

FO is realy high on lower level pitching prospect. Wouldn't be surprised to see Penn, Liz and others traded this winter.

Free agent signings will be limited to pitching and backups.

Has not heard of any talks about free agents from Japan

Tried to drum up interest in Millar and Huff last week.

Not much expected to happen before the winter meetings.:(

Read as little or as much into this as you want.

Thanks for the update.

The question is, do we trade for Bay and keep Bedard and BROb, thinking we can go for it?

Or is the thinking that we can get Bay cheaply and that it is an oppurtunity we can't pass up regardless of what happens with Bedard and BRob?

It seems like both could happen.

Well, if they think we can go for it, it would be foolish.

What i meant by that is that if we aren't in a Wild Card race we could easily trade Bay(who if performs like 900 OPS player he is) for more than we gave up. I am guessing Cabrera/Reimold/C-Type could net Bay.

Are you kidding ?

This team can add Marte and Bay and contend ?

And I can pick the correct 6 numbers in each of the next 4 Lotto drawings too. :rolleyes:

Why in the world would we be targeting a 29 yr old OF and a 32 year old LH RP ?

Is PA still in charge ? Are we still being delusional that we are a player or two away ?

If we can put the best offer on the table for Bay- what does that tell you ?

It tells me we are hurting our future. We aren't giving them Gibbons and Cabrera for Bay. And we aren't getting Bay as a bonus for taking back a bad contract.
