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?

  • To take my mind of this latest disaster...wow, I thought baseball money was crazy, but NBA money is now super-wacko crazy. Joakim Noah is 31 with bad knees and absolutely no offensive game. He can't make a layup. The Knicks just agreed to pay him $72M over 4 years. Holy crap.

  • Thank you, Jason, for allowing me to get to bed at a decent hour. Very thoughtful.

    It will be very interesting to see what Theo does at the deadline. Of course, if Jake doesn't get straightened out, it really doesn't matter. A lot of Jake's comments this year, and his posing for nudie pics in the ESPN magazine, rang some alarm bells -- after one great year (and it was amazingly great), his head has swelled tremendously. Jake, look up the word "hubris", then look in the mirror.

  • at least the cubs have a decent backup of...ummmm....well the minor league system has...uhhh...hmmm.

    maybe adam warren can manage to throw less than 100 pitches in 5 innings? no?

    well damn.

  • Not to worry -- I'm sure Hammel will finish strong in the 2nd half of the season (~sad chuckle, reaches for Scotch bottle~).

  • Hammel has had a rather challenging last month. I am hoping post-break that Hendrix gets pushed ahead of him. They'll be lucky to win a game in NY

  • If baseball does not work out for Patton, I think he's got a future in Civil War re-enactments. He's got a solid Johnny-Reb look to him.

    10 ER in 4ip...almost a full point tacked on tonight, alone. 5HR given up tonight. oogly.

  • Nimmo certainly does not want to see the Cubs leave town. His first MLB rbi last night and now his first HR.

    At least Hammel is eating some innings ... this is the kind of game Peralta should be used if at all.

  • OK, the hell with it.

    It's July 1 -- Hammel starting to suck right on schedule.

    Other than sweeping the Reds -- a bad team actively trying to lose -- this will make 8 losses in 9 games to good teams (Cards, Marlins, Mets). Not good at all.

  • And, so, Jason Hammel decides to test my new resolution right away. Sheesh.

    No Wright, no Duda, no Granderson -- no problem for NY. Ugh.
