Francisco gets elbow surgery?
No Hanrahan talks. No outfielder rumored to be in contact with the mets? I can live with the infield but let's get shome action here. You can't expect to have an outfield of Duda, Baxter and Valdespin and Parnell as the closer.
Maybe the media knew about Cowgill, but didn't consider it news worthy.
I don't remember Baxter getting a lot of press last year.
If Cowgill makes the team, it means no one else was acquired, not even Hairston.
I'm guessing he's AAA bound and depth in case of injury.
He's a corner OFer with a .255 BA and 2 HRs in 200 career ABS.
Yeah, but if it's for prominent players, the deals usually take a little longer and that's when things are leaked, either from players or agents.
Marte for Cowgill is pretty much an under the radar move.
Most people aren't privy to the numerous phone calls made by GMs.
IMO, most of the so called rumors are just base-less media speculation, like Cory Hart, etc., especially this time of the year.
