    That trade proposed for Gordon would honestly be too hard to pass up, especially if Callaspo continues to hit, Getz hits and plays decent 2B, and Gordon keeps underwhelming in the Majors. I will say I’ve gotten to the point where I’m sick of Gordon and honestly don’t think he’ll have any success with the Royals, so if we can get some decent value for him, I’d be all for it…unless of course Gordon goes on to be the cornerstone for the Twins at 3B for the next 15 seasons, then I’ll probably give up being a Royals fan. (because of our damn luck)

    Though, if we’re going to trade Gordon, I’d much rather have him traded outside the division.

    Thank God Napoli can play now. I’ve been waiting him out forever on my fantasy team.

    I’m here. No Murphy.

      If Murphy can play defense at 2B I’d love it… But then again, Where does that leave Rubin Tejada come 2012….

        Well, I was more thinking about Reese Havens in 2012. Pelfrey’s three starts have been very solid so far, big sigh of relief. Still need solid pitching though.

    I hope Napoli doesn’t suck now. He should be able to get nice and comfortable.

  5. I was under the impression that Ike Davis wasn’t up to stay? I seem to remember seeing a quote from someone, Minaya perhaps, saying that?

    Mathis was mashing! That sucks.

    You know, when Todd Hundley couldn’t play left field or first base without making children cry, they didn’t try him at second. They moved on with their lives.

  8. Seriously? One of the top prospects in baseball PLUS two more prospects (one of which, Benson, may turn out to be pretty good) for a 3B with a career OPS of 745? We already have one of those in Harris, if for none of the other reasons to not do the trade.

    Funny how these things work out. Unfortunately for Mathis, his hands might never be the same. Which means this hot start Mathis got off to could end up another legend in Angels folklore, along with Todd Greene.

    That trade proposal is absurd. Ramos for Gordon straight up is more plausible than that. Kansas City will never reel in that kind of haul for Gordon because A) he’s at the lowest value he’s ever been at in his career and B) Dayton Moore is the GM.

    I think we can all agree the deal is a fairy-tale. Gordon would hit 8th for the Twins, at best. He’s an upgrade at the plate but a downgrade in the field over Punto, he’s owed arbitration bumps, and the Twins organization frankly doesn’t view 3B as a glaring problem.

    If we’re talking Ramos, there’s a team in the AL East that’s in a death-spiral, has no prospects behind the plate next year, and could provide a much better return…

    No way the Royals trade Gordon under any circumstances. They are going to ride him out until it is clear to everyone but Dayton that hes a bust. At this point its clear hes not going to be a superstar. However i think he could still be a Scott Rolen/Eric Chavez type which would be great for the royals.

  13. I honestly don’t think Murphy is a fit for the Mets. Maybe in the event he’s decent defensively at 2B he could be in the fold, but otherwise there’s just no room. I’m hoping the Mets can get him some playing time so we can deal him for a pitcher.

  14. honestly, as much as i would love to see Murph develop into a super sub…i really think the best thing for him is to possibly blossom on another team…he needs consistent AB’s…and I dont think he is going to get that as a sub

    Wayyyyy too much to pay for Gordan. Ramos alone is regarded is a top trade chip in the league, and Gordon is starting to look like a never-was. As someone already pointed out, The BoSox are spiraling and don’t have a real catcher prospect waiting in the wings. Maybe next year, the Red Sox let Beltre walk, shift Youk to third and V-Mart to first. They need Ramos behind the dish. Anyone know if they have any nice pitching prospects or infield chips?
