Apparently the Dodgers have "some interest" in Justin Morneau. If I were the Twins I would give him away if they would take that contract.

Jim Bowden thinks a lot of things and unfortunately isn't afraid to share them.

He once Tweeted that his favorite cereal was Corn Flakes and he's thinking of growing a goatee.

Borat agrees with Corey.

Those were the "insider" rumors he was passing along. He said the Liriano trade would involve Matusz or Arrieta.

Jim Bowden's false rumors are almost as funny as his "scouting report" videos on ESPN.com. He just comes off so awkward and dorky in those little 2 minute videos where he breaks down prospects using the 20-80 scale

Six homers already in the Cards/cubs game. Cards have 5 of them. It's only the 5th inning.

Mlbtr says teams would give the Pirates 2 major league bats for Hanrahan.

If that's true, get the deal done. We have plenty of quality bullpen pitchers. Let someone give us quality bats for Hanrahan.

While I do agree, I don't think he's getting traded before the deadline. He'll be the perfect candidate to get traded in the winter.

Grienke to the Angels. No other names are being thrown around.


Edit: Jean Segura and two minor league pitchers.

Hats off to the Angels for showing up the Rangers. I don't know why the Rangers failed to land him. Major screw up that I expect will bite them in the ass.

Maybe they think they can sign him in the offseason. Doubt it.

Because giving up Profar or Olt would have been stupid.

Did they Rangers really say No when they asked for Olt? Seems like he's the bait they are using for Josh Johnson, but the Marlins want Profar.

You're right. I just found this:

Zack Greinke To The Angels; Rangers Said 'No' On Mike Olt

I guess we are hurting at 1B enough to want to keep him, but everyone knows that pitching is what's been hurting the Rangers. Feliz can't get healthy soon enough!

That Angels rotation is sick sick sick! Weaver, Haren, Greinke. In the playoffs, all you need is 3.

I'm not as big on Olt. He's a 24 year old in AA with a 24% K%. Obviously he has insane power, but with Beltre locked up for I think 3 more years, I would have pulled the trigger if I was Texas

In any case, won't lie, was surprised by this. FIgured that they had no chance of getting Greinke if the Rangers really wanted him. Sounds like I was right since the Brewers only turned to the Halos once Texas balked at giving up Olt.

They really need to get an extension done with Greinke. If they do, then the deal is amazing. Segura had nowhere to play here with Aybar/Kendrick locked up for 4 years each and Hellweg is a 24 year old in AA with huge command issues and is likely a RP in the end. Pena has the upside to be a #2/#3 starter though, which hurts. Again, if they lock up Greinke though, the loss of Pena is irrelevant.

Overall, I'm good with the deal, but they NEED to lock him up because their farm is gutted now with the graduation of Trout and Richards + the loss of Segura/Hellweg/Pena. Oh well though, they have some guys at the lower levels who have room for growth
