Let’s see what we’ve got today.
Speaking of Lawrence, the Mariners might be the favorite for his services. Clever Bill Bavasi…building the world’s most groundballingest pitching staff. Will it work? Now to acquire Jake Westbrook somehow.
The Pirates and Rockies are still involved on Lawrence as well. The Rox might go after Ramon Ortiz or Bruce Chen if Lawrence doesn’t sign with them. Colorado would also like to sign Rudy Seanez for the pen.
The Giants might consider bailing on Barry Bonds. They’d have to cook up a reason aside from his amphetamine test. Buster Olney thinks his knees would be a sufficient excuse, and that the Barry Zito signing and preseason ticket sales free the Giants from a reliance on Bonds.
