From Rotoworld:

"The Twins reportedly talked to the Rockies about Garrett Atkins, using Juan Rincon as bait.
The Rockies aren't planning on moving Atkins, and while they want a reliever, Rincon doesn't have nearly as much value as he used to. Nothing is expected to happen here. There's a chance Rincon could go elsewhere."

Hmm, I have Atkins. Hope not but could switch to AL help?

No, no, no...now they're just posting every "rumor". One day, Ian Stewart will take over but not now.

I would like to thank you Mr. Bavasi for not doing anything stupid and trading one of only good prospects for a craptacular player like Matt Morris, Octavio Dotel, Al Reyes, or Dan Wheeler. There may, in fact, be hope for you yet. ;-D

BP, give me the scoop on mateo.


He's nothing special really. A fly ball pitcher, with some HR tendencies at times (which would worry me in Philly). Not a big K guy. Can be a so-so MR but he's not likely to blow anyone's socks off (unless changing leagues really helps him the first time around). He was sent down after a Domestic Violence arrest earlier in the year and tore up AAA, but I don't think he was ever going to put a Mariner uniform on again no matter how well he pitched.

Good luck with him. :-o
