It's all fun and games until someone is picked off second base.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports Anthony Gose is not part of the trade talks for R.A. Dickey.

Gose had been rumored to be in the Jays' deal for Dickey, but there haven't been any confirmed players involved other than Travis d'Arnaud. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman speculates that the Mets could be targeting prospect right-hander Danny Barnes in a return package

Sources:  # Mets # BlueJays have agreement in principle on Dickey trade. Window open for Jays to extend Dickey, which would complete deal.

They gave up a lot, but I think it is a good move.  They have a chance to win in the AL East right now.  Who knows how long that will last.

Dude look at that roster. Romero, their ace last year, is a #4 or #5 now. They are stacked (assuming this goes through).

Well, at least the M's finally got a legit bat.

But Vargas finally started to pitch for well last year. Either way, great trade for Angels as they had surplus with Hamilton signing and turned it into a quality SP.

And they can keep Hamilton & AP fresh by DH'ing them every so often.

I think it was a good trade for both teams. That seems to be happening more lately. I don't know why, but it just seems teams are making trades that help both teams.

Cubs  To Sign Edwin Jackson

By Ben Nicholson-Smith [December 20, 2012  at  2:24pm CST]

The Cubs have agreed to sign Edwin  Jackson to a four-year, $52MM contract,  Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com reports (on Twitter). The deal includes a no-trade clause, Jon Heyman of  CBSSports.com reports (on Twitter). The agreement between the Cubs and the Legacy  Sports Group client is pending a physical.

kots mentioned jackson in his trade thoughts, as a reason to keep an open mind on dealing homer, and this contract backs him up.  How is he worth this?  Hell, he has given up more hits than innings in all but 4 seasons and 2 of those 4 were call ups, early on in career.  I sure do not see the value at all.  If he is worth that homer or any of our staff would bring one hell of a haul.  I'm not into dealing arms now but if we stumble or can't get dudes extended man o man I'm slobbering at what we could reel in.  Now imo we are just not deep enough on the farm to deal starters.  I'd listen to offers though, have to with this dude getting 52 mill / 4 and no trade too.  Jeeeeeeeeeez.

RE: Non-Red Rumors 3.0 - Hot Stove 2011-12 Discussion 


I knew this kid was a good dude before he was drafted.  Anyone named buster posey is OK by me.  Older but is Good News.

It is simply amazing what Buster Posey has been able to  accomplish in his first three seasons in Major League Baseball with the San Francisco Giants.

A Rookie of the Year, a pair of World Series  Rings and a National League MVP

But what Posey did this past week might possibly be the greatest feat of his  incredible young career.

For winning the NL MVP, Posey received either $10,000 in cash or $10,000  worth of equipment from Louisville Slugger.

And the first person he called was none other than his High School  Head Coach Rob Williams at Lee County High School in Leesburg, Georgia.

The phone call was a simple, “Hey Coach… Pull out the Louisville Slugger  catalog and start shopping…”

Williams is a legend in Leesburg and in Georgia High School  Baseball and is revered by Posey as the man who mentored him to where  he is today.

“This allows us to buy not only the need to haves, but it also allows us to  get a few of the would like to have items,” Williams said of the gift.

During a conversation with Williams back at the beginning of November, he  said that he gets an occasional text from Posey or a phone call here and  there.

But there is no doubt Williams was floored and elated with this conversation  with Posey last week.

With Posey, American Idol Winner and Musical  Superstar Phillip Phillips and Country Music Superstar  Luke Bryan all born and bred in Leesburg, Lee County and its high  school is now officially on the map.

And it is simply amazing to see Posey give back to his hometown and the kids  who are working to follow in his footsteps.
