Garza to the Rangers for Mike Olt, C.J. Edwards, Justin Grimm and PTBNL

So that kinda sucks for Garza's value, but I guess it was inevitable. Too bad he didn't land in the NL West.

Alfonso Soriano to Yankees is 99 percent going to happen.

Braves are looking for an SP with Hudson out for the year, and they are actively pursuing Bud Norris. Wouldn't be shocking at all to see them pick up a Norris-Wright combination in a trade, as they need a LH reliever too.

Marlins are adamant that they aren't dealing Cishek or Dunn.

Red Sox seem like they'll definitely add a SP. Peavy, Gallardo are two options. Don't forget that Miguel A. Gonzalez will sign some point soon, and I wouldn't put it past him to be a factor in a pennant race this season.

Phillies say they aren't trading Utley -- I'd put the chances he's dealt at about 20 percent, and only that high because I can see the Dodgers blowing them over with a package that they'd have to take.

What do you think the Soriano trade does for his value? About the same?

Yeah, I think so. The Cubs are paying a bit more than I thought they'd have to.

There is a rumor circling that the Rangers may be interested in trading Profar for Jose Bautista,

Veras to the Tigers. I own him in every league so I hope he gets the closer job. I picked up Cisneros (my pick for Astros closer) in them all too.

What is Bautista's contract situation like? I'd hate to see the Rangers trade their top prospect for a rental or overpaid guy. Their bats have been such a mess for some reason this year that I don't think one more guy makes them into a WS contender. Either they come around or they don't. Hearing lots of rumors about Joe Nathan for a RHB. San Fran for Pence, even rumors to STL. I like Joe a lot but I'd prefer that rout with the Rangers bullpen depth than I would giving up more future.

Bautista has a very favourable contract, and isn't a rental. 3 more years at $14M/yr including a team option. I would hate to see the Jays trade him for Profar.

Okay maybe I wouldn't mind that too much with the potential loss of Cruz. I stand by my bold prediction that Profar will be the next Utley. :-D

Don't like hte Veras trade consifering I own Benoit. This was a good thing to hear though

"[Joaquin] Benoit is my closer, period," manager Jim Leyland said, a few minutes after the deal for Jose Veras was announced.



Side note...haven't posted here for a while now and think I will be able to now ;-D
