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?


LOL.

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".

Jojima tells New York, Sayonara
It looks as if the Mets have one fewer candidate for their vacant catcher's job. Free agent Kenji Jojima abruptly canceled his visit to New York yesterday and returned home to Japan for what was described as "personal reasons." Mets officials, surprised by the sudden change of plans, came away with the impression that Jojima is either going to sign with the Mariners or the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks, his former team in Japan. As many as six major-league clubs were interested in Jojima, but the only place he visited was Seattle, and it appears he will not resume his U.S. tour before making a decision.


No Mets fans will be upset by this news...we want Hernadez or Molina. No more Japenese ballplayers!!!!!!!!!

The Yankees, from what I've heard, are actually seriously considering using Melky Cabrera in centerfield this year. Maybe they're not going for Giles like everybody else said, strangely enough. Their CF situation could be the difference between another postseason disappointment and a great season for the Yanks. Somehow, the talks about getting Aaron Rowand don't make sense either, as I don't think the White Sox would be too keen to give him up.

And in other news,

Ned Colletti, hired as the Los Angeles Dodgers' general manager earlier this week, is planning to meet with Jim Fregosi and Terry Collins to discuss the team's vacant managerial position.

Well, Fregosi managed the 1993 WS-losing Phils, but I haven't heard of Collins. He is also thinking about Lou Piniella (I'd love to see that)

Source?

Melky looked awful in Center in his short time in the Majors. I can't imagine they'll take that risk without another plan in place.

Saw a rumor somewhere that the Yankess and Tigers may do something. Pavano to the Tigers for Carlos Pena. Of course the Tigers would want some money paid in this deal. Pavano hasn't demanded a trade but has told friends he wants out. Pena has been rumored to be history alond with Maroth.

A cheap alternative for the Yanks in CF could be Juan Rivera. The Angels have a log jam of players so I would imagine that he could be had fairly cheap.

No, that was Ruben Rivera. Juan Rivera was the one who filled in at CF/LF when Bernie Williams got hurt and was later traded with Nick Johnson for Vazquez.

He's developed into a decent player and the Angels don't have a big need for him in that loaded outfield, especially if they sign another bat (which is likely). If they can get him cheap, I'd be for it.
