That rumor came from Houston.

:-o Yeah the bullpen is scary for the third straight year. :-o At this point i would consider including one of the minor league pitchers with Coco if it could land them Gonzalez from the Bucs.

I like Linebrink, but i would rather trade Coco and keep WMP. Besides Pena's success and a ballpark like Petco are are mutually exclusive.

I'd rather keep WMP as well. Not sure why. Maybe I just keep envisioning him as a Lil' Papi. He's got the raw strength for sure. And his fielding gaffes are the types of things that you can look back as being funny if he turns into a stud two years from now. So maybe a Lil Papi and Mini-Manny combined. Oh, and maybe because I own him for $1 in my auction league.

For what it's worth, some publication (Hardball Times, maybe?) rated him as the player most likely to break out in 2007 under the age of 27.

As as long as we get El Guapo the bullpen will be fine! :-P

Maybe Hansen and Delcarman have developed over the offseason.

I'd do that in a heartbeat. Wily Mo swings at every outside breaking pitch. Linebrink would give us a great option for the back of the pen. I also wouldn't object to a Crisp/Gonzalez swap...
