Anyone know what is happening with Trot? Will he end up signing with Pittsburgh?

Last I read, he's in negotiation with two teams, the Pirates not being one of them.

They didn't say which two teams, but my guess would be that the Phillies, the As, and the Cubs are the three teams interested.

1 year - $3M. Probably continue to platoon in right against righties. Should help the Tribe.

Yeah, we'll see. It seems to me like they already have enough OFers as is: Dellucci, Choo, Sizemore, Michaels, Gutierrez I guess we'll have to see how they plan to use him.

Not bad. Trot had his moments last year, he'll give the Indians a little extra pop. Only 3 mil too, doesn't hurt them if he doesn't work out.

Trot could be a very good player if he stays healthy
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
