  • Abreau Trade Rumor

    Espn insider headline said that the phillies are lookin into trading abreau to the orioles for Miguel Tejada where he would play 3rd base.

    I dont know any details becasue I am not an insider member but thats what the headline says

    I tihnk if that oppurtunity is there they should take it but it seems like a pretty fair deal to me

    TSN is reporting that the O's want a pitcher along with Abreu. Abreu also has a no-trade clause.

      What would they do with Rollins if they got Tejada?

        Tejada would play 3rd. I'm curious as to what happens with Bell and Nunez.

          Bell's a gamer.
          He's a stone cold mortal lock to start as 3rd sackist in 2006.
          If they get Tejada it's because of Rollins disappointing end to last season.
          It's about time J rolls on the bench til he gets his groove back...

            A little update to the rumor:


            The Phils have learned that Tejada doesn't want to play 3rd, but Tejada doesn't have no-trade protection. It appears that Rollins will not change positions either. The Phils may have to include Robinson Tejeda or Floyd in the proposed trade as well. As part of the deal, the Phillies might want a setup man, possibly LaTroy Hawkins.

              To make the Tejada-for-Abreu deal fly, sources close to the Phillies indicate that Pat Gillick may be willing to part with Miguel Tejada, who has frequently vowed never to play third base or with Robinson Tejeda. Relinquishing Tejada should remove the final stumbling block to dealing Bobby Abreu.

              "It was important for us to make Jimmy feel comfortable," said Gillick, "and to find a place where Bobby could continue to smile and jog in his Gold Glove way. Also, if you think about it, when you have a Tejeda, why do you need a Tejada? Besides, in Bell, we feel we have a more-than-capable third baseman."

              The Phillies have called a news conference for today at 11:00.

                Here's my idea we let Rollins and Tejada play SS at the same time and leave right field empty...
                Plus if they move the right field fence into shallow right field and raise it about 103 feet and make it springy Howard and Utley could play the fly balls off the bounce...
                The Phillies could market the seats behind the fence as preferred obstructed view or charge more by calling them premium diluted view seating...
                Maybe even paint a clown face on the wall and if the player hits it into his mouth the clown's nose lights up and the player wins a free game of mini-putt-putt golf.

                  Every aspect of your idea makes so much sense that you know the Phillies will not even consider it.

                    What is with the NL East and our persistance to sign players to play positions they don't?

                    Nats trade for Soriano to play OF
                    Phillies propose Tejada to 3B
                    Marlins trade for AA players to play ML ball
                    Braves sign Reitsma to be a pitcher
                    The Q: Can the Cubs hold a 6-5 lead with 2 outs and nobody on in the 9th?

                    The A: No

                    ***********My Rant on Bud Selig***********
                    Selig is like a stray pigeon. Pigeons are too self-absorbed to care about anyone else. They poo on people they don't like; they poo on people they don't even know. The only real difference between Selig and a pigeon is that Selig intends to bury our heritage, our traditions, and our culture,

                      With the Phillies, it would be more accurate to say they sign players to play positions they can't. Michaels cannot play center, Abreu cannot play right, Burrell cannot play left, Bell cannot play third, Howard cannot play any position, Lieberthal cannot catch, a slew of pitchers cannot pitch, and Manuel sure as hell cannot manage.

                        Don't forget the key point to your correct analysis:
                        Most Phillies fans cannot discern the difference.

                          Good News: Tejada now doesn't want to leave the Orioles. Our gold glover stays out there in right field.

                            Tejada told the O's he doesn't want to be traded.

                            Other teams should use the O's method for retaining players...tell them you're going to send them to the Phillies.

                              The real good news is that you, LP fan, have become a true Phillie fan.
