Would make the most sense to go after Prince since Pujols is likely going back to St. Louis.

Gio is attractive for alot of reasons none bigger than he's controllable for a few years. Its going to cost the team that gets him quite a bit prospect wise. I'd think about Wil Myers for him but I am sure there could be a package worked out.

He'd be great in Kansas City with our defense and bullpen. Plus he would make an excellent trade piece in a couple of years. Plus we could stick Bruce Chen in a long relief role and allow Montgomery/Duffy/Odorizzi and others to continue developing.

More Street: Same GM says #Rockies still talking to at least one other team about Street & insisting #Padres deal isn't done #stopthepresses

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Pirates have agreed to sign lefty Erik Bedard, MLBTR has confirmed. Canadian journalist Marc Brassard first tweeted news of an impending $4.5MM deal.

Bedard, 32, is coming off his healthiest season since 2007. This year for the Mariners and Red Sox he posted a 3.62 ERA, 8.7 K/9, 3.3 BB/9, 0.97 HR/9, and 42% groundball rate in 129 1/3 innings. He missed time with knee and lat sprains, which wasn't too bad after shoulder surgeries limited him to 164 innings for 2008-09. The signing has upside for the Pirates, who needed some depth after losing Paul Maholm to free agency. Additionally, Charlie Morton had hip surgery in October and could miss the start of the season.

While Phillies tried for Gio, they're def out now. Never planned to trade Hamels. Would have dealt Kendrick or Blanton.

@jcrasnick Jerry Crasnick
You can add the #RedSox and #Yankees to the list of teams that have expressed interest in pitcher Hiroki Kuroda.

The Rangers met with the Red Sox again this morning. The Red Sox are looking for bullpen help, the names being mentioned are Mark Lowe and Koji Uehara. The Rangers need a utility IF and have an interest in Jed Lowrie.

Baltimore would like re-acquire reliever Koji Uehara. There is a lot of interest from several teams in Uehara. Teams seem to the think the Rangers will be willing to give him away because of his poor performance in the post-season. However, the Rangers still have a high regard for Uehara.

The Mets are being aggressive at the Winter Meetings, tweets Joel Sherman of the New York Post, talking about everyone except David Wright. Sherman says the Mets are talking with suitors seriously about Ike Davis, whom the Mets insist is fully healthy. The Rangers are known to like Davis, he adds. Davis, 24, missed most of the season with an ankle injury.

What are the Mets planning on doing?

Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston reports that the Red Sox have discussed John Danks and Gavin Floyd with the White Sox.

David Ortiz will accept arbitration from the Red Sox.
As expected. Ortiz earned $12.5 million this season while batting .309/.398/.554 with 29 home runs and 96 RBI in 146 games. He could see his salary rise as high as $16 million through the arbitration process, but the two sides are also discussing a two-year deal. Either way, he'll be back with Boston in 2012.
MLB Network's Tom Verducci reports that C.J. Wilson has a six-year offer from the Marlins.
ESPN's Karl Ravech reported the same information earlier afternoon while Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com has confirmed the Verducci's report with multiple sources. While there's nothing official yet, this would seem to indicate that the Marlins are out on Albert Pujols. The Angels have also been pursuing Wilson aggressively, but it's not known whether they are willing to go to six years.


Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports that the Nationals are "still in play" on free agent left-hander Mark Buehrle and that talks have intensified.
Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM reported earlier in the day Wednesday that Buehrle has narrowed the field to three teams. We're slowing piecing the puzzle together, as Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com reports that the Marlins are also in the mix. No word on the third team, but the Rangers and Cubs have been involved in negotiations.

Like I was saying yesterday, if the Marlins move out on Pujols, like they have, they can still get a big coup by getting Buehrle, Wilson and I didn't even think they would try but now Fielder

This still means we gotta move Gaby tho

But for even another starting pitcher :ilike:

Loria a boss
