    I think it'll be sweet at 3rd.. and hard to imagine them killing the defense after working so hard to improve it up the middle.. so gotta think they'll keep adam at SS

    (maybe Kaz at SS, Tejada at 3rd, Burke at 2nd... i don't agree with that, but it's a possibility depending on the deal)

    Man if the Stros get him for SS you guys better hope his bat comes back to life 100%, because his defense is atrocious.

    I'm guessing the pitcher is Patton..


    EDIT: this is from mlbtraderumors.com -- but it says it got the package info from 790. I've been listening, and they haven't said what the package is - just speculated it should include AE and Scott

    Apparently 790 is reporting that the package is Everett, Burke, and a pitcher.

    I wouldn't think about trading for Tejada until the Mitchell report comes out.

    Shouldn't we be dealing our few trade assets for starting pitching? I have been happy with the moves made so far but this one is scary.

    IMO, landing Tejada would make not having a legit #2 more bearable.. If you can't get pitching, load up on offense!

    How about Scott, Burke, Everett, Patton for Tejada and Bedard?

    I'm all for getting Tejada,but at the same time I don't want Everett going anywhere.MT needs to play third.....and our pitching staff needs a major overhaul at this point.

    That package wouldn't net Bedard alone.

    Going to take way more then that I'm afraid. Pence, Patton, Everett and Burke still might not get that one done.
