Carroll: Final Offers Made On Tejada

In his the latest Will's Mill, Will Carroll indicates that the Astros and Angels have put in their final bids for Miguel Tejada.  He also mentions that the Astros may turn to Julio Lugo if they can't get Tejada.  In that case they'd have to compete with the Blue Jays.  Lugo was released by the Astros in 2003 by Gerry Hunsicker.  Chuck LaMar was a bad GM, but you have to give him credit for the Lugo signing and the Kazmir deal.  Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while, right?

Carroll also tells us that not much is leaking out of Boston's front office, so reporters are left to connect the dots with info from other teams.  He leaves us with hope for some action soon enough:

"One of my best sources says the first of the Red Sox deals will happen this afternoon."

"One of my best sources says the first of the Red Sox deals will happen this afternoon."

I am still thinkin Zito!

As a Yankee fan, I sure hope so!

I would have no qualms if the Sox snagged Shealy from the Rockies and shipped Youkilis to Beane to sweeten the pot.

There is noway that Julio Lugo could be the backup plan for the Astros in case they don't get Tejada do to the simple fact that they traded the man away for BEATING HIS WIFE. And for one of the most PR savy teams in the league that would be a nightmare in trying to explain why they traded for im do to the reasons why they shipped him off in the first place.

They released him, before the court date I believe. Not trying to defend the guy, but he was found not guilty.

Hey Roto i was looking through some Jays rumors just now and thought you might want to see this just incase you forgot-"You owe me for this. I got an email about a sweet Jhonny Peralta trade rumor in Toronto's Globe and Mail newspaper. I found the article and got ready for some juicy rumormongering. Unfortunately, they only gave me a little taste and made me register (for free). OK, whatever. But then, to read this particular article, I was forced to submit credit card information for a free 14 day-trial. Can someone please remind me to cancel this before July 30th? Thanks."

Thanks man, I did cancel it.

They move Yooooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuukkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk and there will be riots.

Just noticed that Abreu has been left out of the Phillies line-up tonight. Could be because of facing Willis, but I wonder if he's been dealt?

Will Carrol makes me salivate by dropping a Reds rumor and not naming names.

I miss Peter Gammons! He always had Red Sox rumors.

Rumors are swirling that Abreu deal is into it's final stages with the Yankees.
