Olney's Latest: Sabathia, Sexson

Must-read alongside your bowl of Cocoa Pebbles is Buster Olney's Saturday morning blog post:

If the C.C. Sabathia trade rumors were a horse race, he writes, as of today these teams would be the favorites:

  1. Milwaukee Brewers
  2. Chicago Cubs
  3. Los Angeles Dodgers
  4. Texas Rangers
  5. Boston Red Sox

The problem is, he notes, some of these teams may or may not be in contention by the trade deadline; and/or could be bluffing.

On more serious note, all the recent managerial changes in Seattle have clouded Richie Sexson's future with the Mariners. Olney points us to Seattle Times writer Larry Stone's notebook, and the not-so-secret rumblings that Sexson's days with the M's may be numbered.

Stone reports the Mariners may be thinking about releasing Sexson or DFAing him. Before Friday's game with the Braves, when asked if he expected to be with the team after the weekend series, Sexson told reporters:

"I don't know. I'm just going to play. I really can't worry about that, and I'm not going to worry about that. I know if things don't work out here, there's a lot of other teams out there. I know I can still play the game. I'm not worried about never playing again. It doesn't concern me."
