WINTER MEETINGS

Postby talk show host » Mon Dec 03, 2007 6:08 pm

LET THE MEETING BEGIN 12/2

BOSTON..Making a run at BEN SHEETS

CLEVELAND..MARTE..BARFIELD..SOWERS available for DAN HAREN

CLEVELAND..May Sign Cuban Defector ALEXEI RAMIREZ (started as SS Now plays OF)

BALTIMORE.."I think they seriously want to make some changes," said one general manager who has engaged in trade discussions with the Orioles this offseason.Balt Sun

YANKS NEED SANTANA One executive from an AL East club said he would be thrilled if the Yankees come up empty on Santana.

“As good as the Yankees are and as talented as their young pitchers (Philip Hughes, Joba Chamberlain, Ian Kennedy) are, we’ll take our chances against them,” the exec said. “If 60 percent of their starts are going to rookies, they’re vulnerable. They might get lucky, but after 150 innings with any of those guys, you’re going into uncharted waters.” . BOST HERALD

ANGELS.. Hunter, the former Twins star, told Fox Sports Radio that he likes the Angels' chances of landing Santana, who has a full no-trade clause and would probably cost the Angels a package that included Wood, Adenhart, shortstop Erick Aybar and possibly Ervin Santana or Saunders. LA TIMES

DODGERS,, Colletti and Manager Joe Torre strongly suggested last week that if the right deal can't be found, they would be comfortable heading into spring training with a club short on experi

MARINERS "We'd move anybody in the right deal," Bavasi said late last week. Some players "would be a little bit more expensive and probably be part of much bigger deals, but nobody is untouchable. If we do have any untouchables, it's one or two, and they are more established players." Lenny..Felix Hernandez?

MIGUEL CABRERA.. The Giants' Brian Sabean on a conference call last week, referring specifically to the Marlins: "You wonder if they really want to trade the player or if they absolutely, positively have to win the deal in such a one-sided fashion. Maybe they're not going to get something done."

Ned Coletti of the Dodgers to the Los Angeles Daily News: "As we search for a power hitter, a middle-of-the-order bat, there might be two of them already sitting there in [James] Loney and [Matt] Kemp. To overpay in the form of three or four prospects — three of which are big-league players today — for one man, one player, I find that excessive."

Scott Rolen and Duncan for Blalock... Could be an interesting deal for both teams.

I think so. Duncan is the key piece. Rolan and Blalock are used up IMO
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I'd be really happy with that deal if I was a Rangers fan. Rolen is older, but not much worse an option than Blalock.

Shouldn't this thread be jumbled up somewhere in the Offseason Rumors thread? :-D
