Boston Red Sox
|Will Gio Gonzalez an AL East import?|
Beyond their front office and management headaches, Boston has reportedly been discussing a Gio González trade with Oakland. We've heard the A's haven't really gotten into particulars with regards to a Gio trade with the Red Sox, Yankees, or any other rumored suitor.
New York Yankees
|Pujols is listening...|
It would be really exciting if they did something unexpected, moved some money, and improved an aging lineup. For heaven's sake, there were murmurs the Yankees might sign David Ortiz. If they can sign old man Papi to DH, they could sign Pujols or Fielder to share first base with Teixeira.
Tampa Bay Rays

Baseball to lose more athletes

Toronto Blue Jays
Alex Anthopoulos has had a very good start to his career running the Blue Jays. The trade front has been kind to AA, as he's been able to subtract a Vernon Wells while adding talented pieces like Colby Rasmus and Brett Lawrie, among others. In this division, however, the economics of the game make it so difficult for the Rays, Jays, and O's. Difficult is not impossible, though. The underdogs among us should maintain, as Bob Dylan said, "I'm always on my guard, admitting life is hard".
