Since the official announcement of the Marcum trade has finally been made yet, I though we might look at the other rumors floating today.
- As noted earlier the Jays are deep into or hard on or well, choose your own poorly worded double entendre for interested in Carlos Pena. I'll admit I'm not all that excited about that, unless we can get him cheap.
- Alex is also kicking the tires on Matt Diaz. Diaz has hit LHP pretty well in his career. He could make a good platoon partner for Adam Lind.
- We are also considering Russell Martin. I'd be as happy to stay with what we have.
None Jay news and rumors:
- The Orioles traded for Mark Reynolds. Glad it is them and not us.
- The Diamondbacks signed JJ Putz.
- The Dodgers and the Pirates are interested in Jeremy Accardo.
