    I think he will pull one off. It is not necessarily dead. Maybe the two original teams of the

    I don't know, but they did the same thing at last year's meetings with the Garland trade. I'm still amazed at how folks on another board (not this one) blame Ortiz for that... when it was Tal Smith that was overanxious on the trigger finger. It doesn't make any sense to do that, but they've done it before...

    Ortiz is an idiot so it's easy to assume.

    Haha, true. There was absolutely no reason to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    This "major deal" they're talking about....weren't the Astros talking with the O's about Miguel Tejada? Could it possibly have something to do with that?

    Justice is on 1560 right now saying there's all kinds of talk floating through the lobby at the winter meetings that the Astros are on the verge of something major. He says he has no idea what it is, though.

    This is so going down like last year's proposed trade for Jon Garland. I can just feel it.

    lol, Justice is such a douch

    I bet he was one of those losers who used to bring a backpack and wears a glove to a baseball game. You know the grown men who ask players to sign things

    I have to say, I really like Richard a lot more since he started his radio show.

    Don't remember if I read here or at OWA first, but his nickname of Pinwheel is the most appropriate ever.

    Is Justice broadcasting from Nashville or is he hearing it secondhand?

    wade said in an article earlier this week that one of the advantages he had was that he was so new, he had no attachments to anyone yet...

    looking at the names floating out there for santana, seeing what the marlins got for willis/cabrera.... and taking the word "major" at face value... is it remotely possible oswalt, berkman and/or lee are available?

    I was thinking the same thing. Think what you could get for someone like Oswalt who is under contract at a decent value for what he gives you. If we are trading someone like that we better be getting max value in return. It also could be Pence and/or Patton being discussed. Hopefully we will find out soon.

    Oswalt would fetch a bounty, but we need starting pitching and fans would riot if Berkman was traded. The Giants wanted Lee last offseason.... Lee for Lincecum? He would replace Barry in left and we could put Luke or Hunter in left.

    All 3 have full no trade clauses.
