Wonder who the Rays would be looking at in the 4 team deal. Obviously Profar and Olt come to mind but Tampa should be looking to add someone proven who will make a significant impact this year. I wonder if Carlos Santana is in the mix.

I'd be surprised if the Rays traded one 'enigma' for another.

Top KC prospect Wil Myers would be more of the Rays style for a Shields or Hellickson.

He's worth more than both. Especially Hellickson, who's a total enigma.

Like the Choate signing. Don't like the 3rd year though.

Rays have something "exciting" in the works:

Choo maybe?

Choo at RF, Gross at LF, Jennings at CF. Zobrist at 2B and some sort of platoon at SS?

They now have Yunel, and Sean Rodriguez resigned yesterday as a platoon.

Yankees amazingly silent so far.

With Chavez gone (don't understand how they let that happen), and 4 backup catchers on the roster, my guess is Pierzynski and Reynolds will be signed.

Tampa sure is blowing alot of smoke. I could see Carlos Santana being a fit, but with the way they're talking you'd think they're getting Justin Upton or something.

That'll probably cost them Matt Moore.

Gabe Gross? lol. Been awhile since I heard that name. Right now the candidates for the OF are Jennings, Joyce, Fuld, Zobrist and Guyer.

I don't mind Choo but I think the Rays are looking for power from the right side and perhaps someone that can fill more than one positional need.

Escobar will be the SS, and Sean Rodriguez will platoon wherever he's needed. I wish the guy had a consistent bat, he plays an excellent 2nd base.

Price isn't going anywhere, and neither is Moore. Andrus made sense before the Rays landed Escobar, so I'd imagine that if the Rays are in talks with Texas, either Olt or Profar is involved.

I highly doubt Profar would go to the Rays without Price coming back.

That's probably true, but if the Rays and Rangers are in talks I'm sure his name has come up. Andrus is obviously far more likely to be dealt, it'll be interesting to see where ends up if that happens.

If he's going to be dealt, he'll be on a one way plane to Arizona.

Neither could I. I wouldn't even trade him for Upton, that's how high I am on him.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The fourth team in the blockbuster – or, at least, in some permutations of the blockbuster – is Seattle.

And the Mariners, in the opinion of one of the officials involved in the talks, amount to the biggest roadblock, unsure of whether to push forward with the deal.

According to three major league sources, the Rangers are in advanced talks with Philadelphia about a deal for Michael Young that would include the Rangers eating more than half of his remaining $16 million in salary. The Rangers would likely receive a young major league reliever along with a lower-level prospect.
He struggled last year, so the Phillies hoping he can bounce back I guess.

Why would the DBacks trade Upton and Bauer to get Cabrera?

That 4 way deal makes no sense to me. It should just be the Rangers and DBacks in a 2 team trade.
