Let's take a look at the latest edition of Full Count from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports..
- There are conflicting signals over the Mets' willingness to deal David Wright. They've turned away suitors and the subject has hardly come up in internal discussions. However, others in baseball think the club will look to deal Wright if they re-sign Jose Reyes. Wright's club option for 2013 becomes void if he's dealt, making him a free agent after next season.
- Orioles owner Peter Angelos is willing to give Buck Showalter virtually anything that he wants. Sources tell Rosenthal that Angelos has told the skipper that he can stay on as manager while assuming the role of General Manager. The club will have to work out Andy MacPhail's siutation before making any moves.
- The chances of a new labor agreement being struck by the World Series seem to be diminishing. Things are tough to handicap as things can pick up at anytime, but the two sides are very far apart on the draft. The owners want hard slotting and a worldwide draft which would be a difficult undertaking. Of course, free agent compensation, the luxury tax, and revenue sharing are also among the chief topics of discussion.
- Grady Sizemore's future with the Indians might hinge on how he performs in the final weeks of the season. The Tribe holds a 8.5MM option on Sizemore for 2012 but they'll be reluctant to exercise it on a player who hasn't played much recently. One potential solution would be a contract extension with a lower base salary but the outfielder might prefer to test the open market.
