  1. Report: Nationals “pushing hard” to land Gio Gonzalez from Athletics

    Dec 19, 2011, 8:40 PM EDT

    Gio Gonzalez

    Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Nationals are “pushing hard” to acquire left-hander Gio Gonzalez from the Athletics. No word on the specific players being offered by Washington, but Rosenthal hears the two sides are discussing a four-for-one deal. Gonzalez has drawn interest from several teams this winter. The 26-year-old left-hander is arbitration-eligible for…

  2. Mets would need to be “knocked out” to trade Jon Niese

    Dec 17, 2011, 11:44 AM EDT

    Jon Niese

    There was an interesting report by Tracy Ringolsby of FOXSports.com yesterday that Mets’ left-hander Jon Niese was available in a trade centered around Rockies’ outfielder Seth Smith. It didn’t make a lot of sense on the Mets’ end, barring the inclusion of a third team, and it turns out there isn’t much to it. According…

  3. General manager Walt Jocketty calls Reds’ lack of moves “very frustrating”

    Dec 14, 2011, 2:57 PM EDT

    Walt Jocketty

    Reds general manager Walt Jocketty has come up empty on various attempts to make a significant move this offseason and called it “very frustrating.” “It’s all I’ve been working on, trying to improve our pitching,” Jocketty told John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “It’s been an extension of the winter meetings. But we’re still not…

  4. The Rangers aren’t really hot for Prince Fielder

    We keep hearing reports about teams interested in Prince Fielder. Without putting too fine a point on it, however, those reports often seem to come from people who have been said to have Prince Fielder’s agent as a valued source. Others, however, specifically Ken Rosenthal, are hearing different things. Specifically with respect to the Rangers, who…

  5. The White Sox want a king’s ransom for John Danks

    Dec 12, 2011, 9:32 AM EDT

    John Danks

    The White Sox and Red Sox met last week to discuss John Danks. Nothing came of it. Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees talked with the White Sox too and, get this, the White Sox demanded for and two of the following three players: Manny Banuelos, Dellin Betances or Jesus Montero. Not bloody likely. That’s similar…

  6. UPDATE: Blue Jays, Diamondbacks pursue Gio Gonzalez

    Dec 7, 2011, 6:09 PM EDT

    Gio Gonzalez

    6:10 p.m. EDT: Susan Slusser is back with a report that the Blue Jays are trying to acquire Gio Gonzalez. Add them to the list that includes the Diamondbacks, Nationals, Reds and maybe still the Tigers and Yankees. 12:25 p.m. EDT: CBS Sports’ Danny Knobler reports that the Tigers weren’t prepared to pay the price for Gonzalez,…

  7. Ruben Amaro: the Phillies want to keep Cole Hamels for a long, long time

    Dec 7, 2011, 3:34 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Philadelphia Phillies

    I just got done interviewing Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro.  The interview will air on NBC SportsTalk tonight on Versus at 6PM Eastern.  In the meantime, though, I can give you the gist: Amaro said that he does not comment on rumors and thus didn’t have anything to say about the Gio Gonzalez stuff that…

  8. Diamondbacks pursue Oakland’s Gio Gonzalez, Trevor Cahill

    Dec 7, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT

    Trevor Cahill

    Trading Carlos Gonzalez and Brett Anderson to Oakland for Dan Haren after the 2007 season proved to be quite a setback for Arizona, but now it looks like the Diamondbacks are at it again, as they’re making a run at acquiring either Gio Gonzalez or Trevor Cahill from the A’s. A’s GM Billy Beane will want the…

  9. Wait, the Phillies are interested in Gio Gonzalez?

    Dec 7, 2011, 8:40 AM EDT

    Gio Gonzalez

    From the “let’s remember that we hear all kinds of crazy things at the Winter Meetings and a lot of it is baloney” files, Ken Rosenthal says that the Phillies — the Phillies! — are among the many teams with an interest in trading for Gio Gonzalez. Because obviously the Phillies (a) need the pitching;…

  10. Greetings from Day 3 of the Winter Meetings

    Dec 7, 2011, 8:13 AM EDT

    In N Out

    In-N-Out in Dallas?  Who knew?  Baseball writers, that’s who. You could put them on an island in some far flung sea and they’d be able to find an In-N-Out Burger.  It’s just what they do. I felt obligated to go anyway. The lobby was getting to be too much for me last night.  The first…

  11. Report: A’s wanted Montero, Banuelos from Yankees for Gio Gonzalez

    Dec 6, 2011, 11:30 PM EDT

    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…

  12. The Marlins have some interest in Wandy Rodriguez

    Dec 6, 2011, 7:43 PM EDT

    Wandy Rodriguez

    We learned earlier today that if the Marlins do indeed sign Albert Pujols, they’ll be out on free agent left-handers C.J. Wilson and Mark Buehrle and turn their focus on the trade market. The Marlins were already connected in talks for A’s left-hander Gio Gonzalez last month and Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com hears that they…

  13. The Royals are interested in James Shields, but it would cost them

    We mentioned earlier tonight that the Royals have interest in Athletics’ left-hander Gio Gonzalez as they look to upgrade their starting rotation, but Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports that they have also expressed interest in Rays right-hander James Shields. However, the asking price is high. Really high. According to Chastain, the Rays want closer Joakim…

  14. The Royals are interested in Gio Gonzalez

    Dec 5, 2011, 7:02 PM EDT

    Gio Gonzalez

    The Royals are currently scouring the trade market for starting pitchers and according to Jon Heyman of SI.com, they have expressed interest in Athletics’ left-hander Gio Gonzalez. We heard late last month that the Marlins discussed a potential deal with the A’s, but balked at the asking price of either Logan Morrison or Mike Stanton.…

  15. Previewing this week’s winter meetings

    Dec 4, 2011, 2:37 PM EDT

    Jose Reyes

    Expect the rumors to come fast and furious as the league’s top executives converge on Dallas. The winter meetings officially start Monday, but the general managers will arrive and start talking among themselves this afternoon. With so much of the free-agent talent congregated at a few select positions, there could well be more trades than usual,…
