NICE!!! What a _________! I was hoping Benson would come to Bmore if not for anything more than to see her. Alright, anyways, I've started many posts lately about baltimore only for them to lose out on both Konerko and Byrd. So, they have cash to spend! Will they spend it?? Supposedly Millwood wants a 4 or 5 year deal? WOW! Don't get too excited there big guy! I can see them swinging a trade. C'mon, Bedard for Abreu!!! I dunno if any of you saw the Stark article on ESPN today, they say it's still possible.


Why exactly does Baltimore want to lose pitching for more offense? Shouldn't they be spending their money on arms?

Now they supposedly want Ramon Hernandez or possibly Piazza. :-?


Haha, Baltimore will need to get pitching regardless. In any event, Bedard is not a favorite w/ the O's organization. He took his time coming back from an MCL sprain last year, and it ruffled a lot of feathers.

Gathwright to Yankees

Nomar to Yankees


Just where would Nomar play? DH? 1B? :-?

And Gathwright? Who would they give up? It won't be Cano or Wang.


Nomar in CF is the buzz. :-P


please tell me you're joking :-o



Word on the street ( :-? or in the lobby) is Nomar to the Yankees playing everyday, moving from 1st to DH and a few games in the outfield.

Gathwright shouldn't cost much. He is a one tool player, but he is the fastest guy in the bigs.

Burnett signs with the Cards

Manny talk is big but he just stays with the Red Sox, possibly the Angels but definitely not the Mets

Pierre goes to the Cubs

Damon resigns with the Red Sox

Zito gets traded to the Dodgers

Nomar stays with the Cubs

Omar Minaya admits that Steinbrenner is actually running the Mets.

ESPN Rumor Central:

Burnett- Blue Jays(supposably close to deal)

Zito- Dodgers, and Rangers

Sammy Sosa-talked with Mets! (if we sign sammy for any amount of money higher than 2mil a year i wll throw up)

nothing else worth mentioning

If the Mets even waste 5 minutes talking with Sosa, I'll be overjoyed. He's so far over the hill it's just rediculous now.

Why does this not suprise me...can Kansas City get into the bidding for where the Marlins will move to? Can they combine teams (with KC taking about 3 roster spots and FLA taking the rest)? At least the Marlins have some young talent that might be competitive in a few years...we can't even say that... :~(

ship the Royals to Vegas and welcome the Kansas City Marlins :-°

Baird will probably sign some scrubs like Mays unfortunately :-°
