Marlins first baseman Carlos Delgado could replace Rafael Palmeiro in Baltimore if Orioles officials — currently divided over the idea — agree to give up a top pitching prospect, a baseball source said Thursday. The Marlins and Orioles have not yet discussed a trade, but Baltimore's front office has talked about it since at least the general managers' meetings in California last week. "Baltimore is seriously debating whether to get Delgado, but they are split over whether to pursue it,'' said the source, who was briefed on Baltimore's strategies
Which team are the Orioles going to steal that top pitching prospect from?
Mlb.com posted a report today stating that the Orioles aren't going to pursue Delgado because they aren't interested in taking on the back-logged contract. I think he's going to the Mets.
If I were the Padres, I would be more concerned with signing Giles. If it meant letting Hoffman go, so be it.
Apparently Jim Bowden is in the running for GM of the Red Sox. Good news for the Yankees if that happens.
Wouldn't be surprised to see the Dodgers overpay for Giles - new GM wanting to show he is "serious about winning now".
