Boston-LA-Toronto trade rumor swirling

Postby thehat » Fri Jul 02, 2004 12:41 am

I have not checked this personally, but will do so in the AM. Sounds plausible enough.

Boston gets: Odalis Perez, Carlos Delgado
Toronto gets: Cesar Izturis and minor league pitching prospect (unknown)
LA gets: Nomar, Kim

This originated on the Sonsofsamhorn website. It actually makes some sense.

Garciaparra is done with Boston. If they can move him now before losing him via free agency, they will. Delgado is done in Toronto, same situation. Perez has had run-ins with management in LA. Kim wants to start, Dodgers are a fit. Nomar is a SoCal guy, Dodgers would have a great shot to ink him long term. Ditto for Boston/Delgado. As for Toronto, their only interest is shedding payroll, so the deal clearly works for them.

May turn out to be nothing, but it does not seem all that far fetched considering the personalities involved, as well as the close relationships between DePodesta, Epstein and Ricciardi.

Hmmm interesting. But i think if Toronto were to give up Delgado, they could do a little better than Izturis and a pitching prospect, in my opinion. Jus seems like this deal works out awesome for the sox, and satisifes LA pretty well, and the Jays OK.

Ryn...the Blue Jays are just stuck, same as the Royals were with Beltran. They'll have to settle for FAR less than the player is actually worth. KC got robbed blind in the Beltran deal (despite some opinions to the contrary here, I'm totally convinced of this) and Toronto will not get anything close to what they should for Delgado. That's the way it goes for the mini-markets.

Of course I would love to get Delgado...what would happen with Millar?

I understand the way they have to play it, being a small market team. But I jus dont think Izturis and a prospect is the answer. But hey....we'll see. i guess Josh Phelps slots into the 1B spot in that case.

If this is true (please let it be) then this is the exact thing The Trio needs to do. Don't sit on your hands and wait for this season to spiral down the tubes.

You know if the Yankees were in this spot George would be getting whatever big name player he could right now.
