WFAN radio host Mike Francesa said on air today that a team source told him the Mets we’re still in on Jose Reyes

“We’re sitting back,” the source said. “We’re not gonna bid against ourselves. We’ll be there to take a shot at him at the end.”

I know.fine me. love the guy but if he wants too much its not worth it. guy sucke din septembe rlike everyone else bascially and he cried a lot last year. Aramis is a beast too, plus it allows Youk to play DH more because hes fragile anyways
Well i for one would be glad to see Big Papi out of Boston. Hopefully out of the division too.

Even though A-Ram improves the defense and would rake at Fenway, he's still gonna get a 3-4 year deal and atleast 13MM a year. Are you that comfortable with letting Papi leave when he probably would take a 2 year deal to stay?

They're doing what the Cardinals are doing with Pujols and the Phillies with Rollins. I wish my own fu*king team took notes on this and stops bidding against our own damn selves.

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, catcher Chris Iannetta is on the verge of being traded to the Angels for 21-year-old right-hander Tyler Chatwood.
The Rockies first need to finalize a free agent agreement with Ramon Hernandez, but that could happen within the next 12-24 hours. Iannetta posted a decent .785 OPS with 14 home runs and 55 RBI in 112 games this past year for Colorado. He'll give the Angels a much-needed offensive boost at catcher. Chatwood registered a 4.75 ERA and 74/71 K/BB ratio across 142 major league innings in 2011.
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rockies are close to a two-year deal with Ramon Hernandez.
Once the medicals are checked and the free agent agreement is finalized, Colorado will send catcher Chris Iannetta to the Angels, according to Rosenthal. Hernandez turns 36 years old next May, but he batted .283/.342/.451 with 12 home runs this past year for the Reds and might represent a slight overall upgrade over the 28-year-old Iannetta.
Angels trading away a starter, could this be to clear a spot for CJ Wilson?

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Mets have inquired about Oakland closer Andrew Bailey but are unlikely to execute a trade.
The A's are attempting to "sell high" on Bailey, according to Sherman, and the rebuilding Mets don't want to meet their asking price. The 27-year-old righty is also drawing trade interest from the Rangers, Reds and Mariners. He registered a 3.24 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 24 saves in 2011.

Aramis Ramirez visited the Angels in the past week and a contract offer is likely coming soon from the team, reports Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. The Angels were one of 4-5 teams with a "serious interest" in Ramirez, according to agent Paul Kinzer; one of these other teams could be the Tigers, who checked in on Ramirez in early November.

Signing Ramirez would give the Angels a nice trade chip in current third baseman Alberto Callaspo, who posted a .288/.366/.375 line last year and can also play second. Los Angeles could have a wealth of infield depth with Callaspo, Maicer Izturis and whomever doesn't get the bulk of playing time at first base between Mark Trumbo and Kendrys Morales.

Also from Rosenthal/Morosi, the Brewers have inquired about Ramirez's services, with the plan of installing Ramirez at third and having a platoon of Mat Gamel and Casey McGehee at first. Milwaukee has shown interest in a number of free agent infielders this winter, including Jimmy Rollins, Jerry Hairston Jr., ex-Braves shortstop Alex Gonzalez and possibly Japanese import Hiroyuki Nakajima. Sources tell Rosenthal and Morosi that the Brewers aren't interested in Jose Reyes at his current asking price.
Matt Garza "is exactly the type of guy we’d like to build around," Theo Epstein told reporters on Thursday, including Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune. Epstein said that rotation depth was a priority for the Cubs, which would seem to indicate the recent Garza trade rumors may be for naught. Epstein did say he would be "open-minded" about possibly moving a.ssets like Garza or Sean Marshall, though in Marshall's case, Epstein said "if you have the best left-handed reliever in baseball, it’s hard to think about taking him out of that role."
