Impossible. They will not trade either of them.

earlier in the season i remember hearing that baldelli was untouchable, and that crawford was the one that was going to be traded at some point to get gathright up.

if this remains the same, i'm not sure, so take it for what its worth.

the phils arent moving Floyd and def not Hamels as far as ive heard... :-°

i dont think that the D-Rays will make any major moves this year.. theyll mostly stay still. theyve got an awesome young nucleus ans the postseason would prolly be the better time to acquire pitching.

Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)

This reeks of Gammons. Personally don't think TB will trade any of them any time soon. Crawford, Baldelli or Gathright.

I don't think that any trade involving Philly has any merit. They have already said they would not trade Hamels or Floyd (their only real great prospects) and have said they will probably not trade Utley. The only guy left is Howard, and personally, I don't think that the MLB is in a desperate need for power-hitting 1B (it seems almost everybody has one).

Hamel and Floyd aren't going anywhere, which means Rocco isn't going anywhere. It's as simple as that.

BTW whoever wrote that for ESPN is a moron when it comes to baseball and prospects. That trade would be pathetic for so many reasons I can't even name them all.

What's with the ESPN/Gammons bashing? The quote is simply Rotoworld regurgitating what ESPN is reporting with their own spin, and all ESPN is doing is reporting what is blowing in the wind (as opposed to third-party hypothesizing).
