    Gio Gonzalez

    It’s deja vu all over again. A day after the report that the White Sox asked the Yankees for Jesus Montero and Manny Banuelos in return for John Danks comes word from Bob Klapisch that the A’s wanted the same package in Gio Gonzalez trade talks. Which at least is somewhat justifiable. Gonzalez is better than…

    Ervin Santana

    We know the Angels want another starter. It doesn’t seem at all likely that they’d want to subtract one immediately afterwards, but according to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal, the Angels are fielding calls about Ervin Santana from teams thinking they have the inside track on C.J. Wilson. The Angels would probably prefer to go into next…

    Image (1) pujols%20homer.jpg for post 5214

    At this point it looks like there could be as many as three teams making ten-year offers to Albert Pujols. Which makes me want to back to the halcyon days of, oh, three hours ago when I was on NBC SportsTalk, speculatin’ about where he might go. The sense then seemed like Miami. Still kind…

  14. If the Cardinals lose Albert Pujols…

    Dec 6, 2011, 8:23 PM EDT

    Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday

    Because that certainly seems to be the way things are going down at the moment. The Cardinals were supposed to be set at first base and in right field if Pujols departed, as Lance Berkman would move a first base position that fits him a whole lot better anyway and Allen Craig would take over…
