  • Official Trade Rumor Thread

    Well, let's regroup all of these rumors:
    Here's todays:

    An emailer tells me that AM 670 The Score in Chicago reported yesterday that the Cubs are looking at Alfonso …

    "Cubs Still Looking At Soriano?
    An emailer tells me that AM 670 The Score in Chicago reported yesterday that the Cubs are looking at Alfonso Soriano again. They're hoping that Brian Dopirak or Brandon Sing put up big numbers in Spring Training to boost their trade value. There's nothing on Score reporter George Ofman's blog to this effect yet.

    Currently, Dopirak is 5 for 9 with two home runs this spring. Sing is 4 for 7 with two homers. Logically, the trade rumor makes some sense for the Nationals. Nick Johnson is an impending free agent, so it'd be nice to have some depth at first base in a barren farm system. Dopirak took a step backward in high A ball last year, hitting .235/.289/.381 in 507 ABs. He's 22 years old. Sing is 25 and was left unprotected in the Rule 5 draft this year after hitting .276/.404/.538 in Double A.

    In Soriano, the Cubs would be adding their fourth second baseman. Soriano has a career line of .280/.320/.500 for New York and Texas. He's 28 and will be a free agent after 2006"

    VIERA, Fla. — Any early concerns must come with this caveat: This is spring training, and these games don’t mean a thing.

    "Washington Times: But there have been some disturbing developments at Washington Nationals camp in the last few days, disturbing enough to cause the general manager to hold a 10-minute, closed-door meeting with his manager, then repeatedly declare himself 'embarrassed' while promising massive changes in the next 48 hours. "

    "Jose Guillen- Nats have begin talks on a contract extension with him...he's eligible for free agency after the season"


    "the Nationals receive Clement and Alex Cora (plus cash if Clement pitches over 150 innings) and the Mets receive Jose Vidro and Jay Bergmann plus a PTNBL from either Nats or Sox depending on Vidro's health (Livan Hernandez could be sent to the Mets also)"

    I don't put stake into rumors until they make a dependable source like ESPN or KFFL.
    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,
