    "Yes, but..." Just doing deals can misfire, right Mr Jennings? I want deals which actually benefit the team, not just deals to talk about the team.

    Not gonna happen, that would be an amazing steal on our part, there's no way it happens. Maybe if we swaped out Scott and instead sent them Pence.

    burke, everett, bourne? craig roberts just said that's his guess. he's a r****d.


    edit: i didn't mean craig roberts even though that's who i said.... i believe it was ted delluca who said it. either way it was mentioned on 790 just a few minutes ago. :eek:

    If that's true then I cannot understand why they made a big deal when they got Bourne.

    If that were true, they will have essentially gotten Tejada for Lidge, Everett, and Burke.

    Irony of ironies.

    it's not as if negotiations can't continue after the meetings end, but when does the winter meeting end? is there a set time today? the chron mentioned it ends this afternoon, so i would expect if something were to happen today then it would be happening within the next couple of hours.

    I don't think it's going to happen today, as the Orioles' execs left earlier this morning.

    I hate to be Debbie Downer, but I have a bad feeling that this is all much ado about nothing and is all a big PR ploy. This crap about "something could get done after the meetings" sounds very fishy to me. Delati can break stories and get excited all he wants..I'll believe it when it happens.

    I'm not down at all if the Astros don't spend their tradeable asset on a hack SS who had down numbers last year and has a drama queen attitude when what they need, desperately, is starting pitching.

    the guys on 790 said it wasn't going to happen today, most likely.

    the did however say the trade was "likely."

    Had down #'s yes.. I don't think his attitude is really that bad. Anyone will turn into a negative guy when in the Orioles organization under Angelos.. He's a hard worker. I think that part of him would be fine here...just not his defense at SS.

    His power #'s might come back up purely because of the short porch in LF (didn't he win the HR derby against Lance at MMP?)

    A source told MLB.com that the Astros are no longer in the picture for acquiring Miguel Tejada.
    The probability of the teams reaching an agreement were downgraded from a two on a scale of one to 10 to "zero" by the source on Tuesday. The two sides were reportedly talking about Michael Bourn, Adam Everett and others. Dec. 4 - 10:32 pm et



    This was from 12/4. But the names mentioned there were Bourn and Everett...and then some
