Jon Adkins is one of the friendliest guys you will ever meet. Always tweeting.

I like Gorz more than Lilly he is having a good season he has a era slightly over three and I bet he costs a little more in prospects though.Maybe 2 Mid level+Cash conserderations for him.The only way I would consider a Wilmer flores is if they could get both Lilly and Gorz.

No way should the Mets ever trade Flores.

Edmonds make sense for the Braves although he is a left handed bat. The Braves are desperate for decent CF production with McLouth sent to AAA and Melky a 4th outfielder manning it full time right now. Wren seems unwilling to this point to give up anyone that has value now or in the near future so Edmonds to me is the best out there.

Doesn’t seem to be available though.

I think a Ted Lilly/Zambrano combo to the mets for Oliver Perez with the Mets absorbing all of Big Z’s contract would work for both teams…

The Cubs would get salary relief for this season and the next 3…

The Mets get immediate help this year, while adding payroll for 2 more additional years ( with 50 mil coming off the books soon )..( oliver’s salary next year would be a wash )

A met rotation of santana/pelfrey/lilly/niese/zambrano with dickey and tak in the pen would make their team much stronger in both the rotation and pen….I think dickey as a long man in the pen…

the mets would have a long man named dickey for once !

Would you want Zambrano and his headaches in the rotation, and the Mets footing the bill for it? Personally, I would rather just keep R.A. Dickey in the rotation the way he is pitching. A good knuckleballer is fun to have in a starting rotation anyways.

Agreed. Dickey had lost 3 in a row before the Cards but he still has an ERA in the mid 2’s, right? And he only lost them because of a lack of run support. Stick with Dickey.

I would rather them trade Tejada than Wigginton. Wiggy still has some power and can play every where. Miggy did bring back a solid, if raw, arm, Wiggy might bring back even more. As mich as I like Guthrie, he could bring back a lot more.

Tejada is already gone, dude.

I know. I said they got a young arm for him. My point was, I would rather them trade Miggy than Wigginton, if they’re gonna keep anyone.

The Angels don’t appear to have made Bobby Abreu available, according to ESPN.com’s Buster Olney
Really? Now Buster is reporting players who are not available? I also would like to report that the Yankees have not made Robinson Cano available. Wow, that was easy.

would the angels be crazy to ask the Chi Sox for Daniel Hudson for Abreu?

Do it!

I’d make Abreu available if the right deal came along. Angels farm system is not the deepest and Abreu is hardly the player he once was.

RBomb2844

Yeah, I’m sure the Rays could work out a deal for him. They lost out on Worth, DeJesus, and everyone else that has been taken off the market. Abreu could be a good fit in Tampa Bay, though I think the Angels would rather move Matsui or Rivera – good luck though.

Well, contrary reports said that he IS available, so he’s just clearing things up.

Taschner didn’t last long with the Dodgers. Another regular of the DFA Club.

how on earth can the rangers afford cliff lee and then chase after oswalt and fielder when they are in bankruptcy?

They can’t they”re probably going all out to try and win it all this year because they know the Yankees are gonna pounce on Cliff Lee like a bunch of parana lol. I’m not just saying that because I’m a die hard Yankee fan either lmao.

The Giants are losing interest in everyone, this wont end well…

Aaron Cook to the Cardinals would be a great fit. Cook is a warm body that throws a great Batting Practice. …..and the Cardinals…..need ……um

Hey! just take him dang it!

Robert_birch

I think this is actually a good trade for the Rockies-Cardinals. Cook is a good 4th starter at this point of his career and the Cardinals need him to put some distance between them and the Reds every 5th day.

The Rockies are going to have to pick up at least half of Cook’s salary to make it happen.

Redhawk

I’m not sure that’s going to happen. The Rockies don’t have St. Louis type cash

Are the Giants going to do ANYTHING!!?? Sabean is killing me. All I am hearing is the Giants loosing interest in every player they are linked too. They obviously need a bat and a relief pitcher. I am starting to think Sabean is one of those GM’s nobody wants to deal with. Probably due to the fact that he doesn’t understand that you have to give up talent to get talent!! JEEEEZZZZZZZ! I guess I’m too impatient. Is it Saturday yet?? LOL!
