I think we could see Payton and Millar to the Braves for Dan Kolb and the rights to Adam Stern. I hope Theo can figure something out that's better than that, but that's all I can come up with right now.

I don't want to package up Millar and Payton unless they go ahead and throw in a prospect to get a big name. Otherwise, trade each one seperately.

I LOVE this trade with Cora. I dont see any downside, we pretty much just traded a utility infielder for a better utility infielder. I did like Vasquez when we initially got him, but he did absolutely nothing here. Great trade, I don't know what the Indians were doing.

This team is gonna take its final shape real soon. According to Gammons, it won't include Guardado.

Cora has another year on his contract after this season, worth 1.4 mil. It was basically just a salary dump for Cleveland. Stern has to be on the 25 man roster this season unless we trade for his rights with Atlanta. I don't think it would make much sense for Stern to be the 4th OF, seeing as how he bats from the same side as Damon and Nixon. Chip would be a much better replacement, as he bats right handed and could do basically the same thing Jay Payton did.

Just heard Gammons on EEI saying that he believes JP will be heading to Oakland for a reliever.

The younger the better from that organization. You have to think Kotsay is closer to the door if they want a piece of Payton.

Yeah, hopefully Kotsay isn't going to NY....

The deal would be a steal if we got Cruz, but seeing as though Beane isn't a tard it'll just probably be a good prospect.

That was one bad lineup last night, Mr. Francona. I hate to see a game cut short by the rain, especially one that was that close. Oh well.
