Odds & Ends: Marlins, Wigginton, Rockies, Wood

It was on this day in 1905 that Shirley Povich, one of the great sportswriters of all time, was born in Bar Harbor, Maine.  Povich, who passed away in 1998, would've been 105 today and no doubt still would've been keeping an eye on Stephen Strasburg for the Washington Post.

I would love to see the Giants trade for DeJesus. Hopfully they can add Rowand to the deal.

That wouldn’t be a problem. Posey and Rowand for DeJesus.

Or given its the Royals, they would need to get Renteria and Rowand for Dejesus.

The Royals have actually had pretty decent trades the last year or so. For the most part at least.

I would love to see Posey straight up for DeJesus. Does anyone know what the Giants are willing to give?

The Giants wouldn’t give up Posey for Butler, much less DeJesus. Hopefully you weren’t serious…

Just an FYI, but “duh” doesn’t really help your credibility.

Anyway, Lincecum is pitching tongiht, and the Royals have about as much chance at acquiring his services as Posey’s.

So I guess they are looking at Rowand haha…I didnt say they would get him I am saying that’s who they are watching tonight…

Yes Lincecum is pitching what’s your point? We already have our Cy Young pitcher!

The Rockies have an abundance of pitching prospects Rogers is worth very little to us, morales could be dealt as well partially because he needs to become a starter and he can’t do that with us

Detroit might not have enough to win it all this year, but they have a lot of contracts coming off of the books next year. They most certainly could use a pitcher of Dan Haren’s caliber for this year and the next two years they’d get to keep him.

I think Cody Ross to the braves would be a good trade. Considering that we dont have a center fielder right now that can rake. Im not saying Ross is a home run hitter, but I’ve seen him play in the past against the braves and do wondrous things. The only thing bad about Ross in Atlanta is that they could get him and David Ross’s last name mixed up.

Ross would have been a Monster in the old “launching pad” Atlanta Fulton County Stadium where every long fly ball had a chance, but the new place just don’t carry the same. Ross has hit so many at Land Shark to the warning track and didn’t quite go out, put him in a place where the ball carries a bit better and he will hit 25-30 a season, like Philly.
