Is That A Rumor I See?

Troy Renck at The Denver Post says the Rockies might have some interest in Chad Gaudin. And to fill my word quota, here's some excerpts:

As they say goodbye to a respected veteran, the Rockies are attempting to say hello to a new pitcher, exploring trades for the Cubs’ Chad Gaudin and Tampa’s Jason Hammel.


Gaudin is a pitcher the Rockies have liked for the last few years, dating to his days in Oakland. His situation is a bit difference because of his salary. While a player like Hammel would never clear waivers, Gaudin might. There will be a handful of pitchers like him designated for assignment over the next week, which means the final spot in the Rockies’ figures to be a fluid situation.

 

Dallas Braden and Carlos Zambrano will start today's Cactus League game.

Levine just said on Waddle & Silvy that there are teams interested in Vizcanio also.

Is this the April Fool's joke?

LAME.

you know we bounced around some ideas and then we all forgot about it...

but I did hear that Derrek Lee has been traded. 

LF Alfonso Soriano, 2B Aaron Miles, 1B Derrek Lee, RF Milton Bradley, 3B Aramis Ramirez, CF Reed Johnson, C Geovany Soto, SS Ryan Theriot, and Big Z.

i.e. the Lineup Against Lefties.

Hayden Penn to Marlins for Robert Andino, Marlins also get ex-Cub Ross Gload for a PTBNL from the Royals.

Clay Rapada doesn't make the Tigers nor does Scott Williamson...

"Cub for a Day" Garrett Olson optioned to Triple A for the Mariners...

R.I.P. Herman Franks. Man, did we love taunting him. Fat managers rule.

Wood's locker to remain untouched and unused this year at Wrigley-

Great honor for a great Cub who we tragically lost to...free agency.

I'd be impressed if all the readers organized and are just going to post old news stories in the comments all day for April Fool's....

Sweet!

I don't know who we got in return, but I really don't care!!!

Scott Eyre is broke...

Rob, you didn't post an April Fools joke. I think it's clear that you hate April Fool Day and probably April as a whole. What is wrong with you? why are you always disrespecting April?

Anybody that doesn't like April doesn't like spring. What's in the spring? The beginning of the baseball season. Why do you hate major league baseball? Just because 1 boy from Indiana followed his dream and played 2 sports in college?

  • OK Marlins -- take 'em down. Fernandez, at home, tomorrow for the Fish.

    Gotta say, though -- as much as I can't stand them, the Cardinals have had some very impressive late-inning wins against premier closers.
