Default Cody Ross Rumblings

If this is true, I'll shoot myself:

Quote:
Well you can say that I was in the right place at the right time.

Strolling down past Yankee Stadium on Sunday afternoon I happen to stop into a nice little cafe and sat down to have a coffee. The person sitting behind me gets a phone call. When he picks it up, he says "Hi Michael how you doing?"

What happens next in this conversation I wrote on a piece of napkin.

I was led to believe that the "Michael" is no one other than Florida Marlins GM Michael Hill, and the man sitting behind me is no one other than New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman.

The conversation was about a possible trade that the Yankees might be pulling off within the next 24 hrs.

The trade involved the Yankees sendng Colin Curtis and Anthony Claggett to the Marlins for outfielder Cody Ross.

Anthony Claggett has been very good in the minors, posting a 2.95 era in 30 appearances.

Collin Curtis has 12 home runs, 70 RBI's and 60 walks in AA and AAA combined this year. Also has stolen 14 bags while being caught once.

Cody Ross has 14 HR's and 53 RBI's with the Marlins thus far. Ross is an excellent defender and has some pop.

If you see this trade go down dont forget where you heard it first.

TJ, any word on whether or not this is legit???

But we've already said we're buyers. Unless this is a precursor to another deal that would involve those prospects, I can't see this rumor being legitimate.

Michael Hill has say in what we do? That comes as a shock to me.

I'm assuming sometimes they pass him a piece of paper with what he is allowed to say and let him use the phone during this exciting time of the year. Perhaps Beinfest was already on the other line

Default Cody Ross Rumblings

Quote:
# Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald says the Red Sox are looking for a right-handed hitting fourth outfielder who plays good defense. He mentions Willie Bloomquist and Cody Ross as possible fits.
# The Marlins are looking to make moves, but it's unclear where they'd want to upgrade, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald. They could add a starter, a reliever or a position player, but don't expect them to trade prospects Logan Morrison and Mike Stanton. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports says the Fish "are split on whether to acquire a hitter or starting pitcher."

Lets hope Rosenthal is right because a reliever does nothing for this team

Why did we trade Hammer? And im not saying this because of what he did last night. His OPS has been in the .900's all year and is now over 1.000....

Because he was chronically injured and seemed to lose all of his power after coming back last year.

WHY is Cody being considered a possible fit ANYWHERE? This is ridiculous.

Because he's probably the most valuable outfielder on the market.

His level of production and defense for how much he makes beats anyone out there.

I wonder if Cody's defense makes up for .200 points of offense from Hammer

(not being a dick, legit wondering)

I understand that, but if we're really buyers like we say we are, we shouldn't be looking to move Cody at all.

Here u go guys ill try to keep u updated throughout the day

We are getting ATON of interest in Cody Ross. Yankees and Red Sox with the most interest.Houston,Detroit,and San Francisco also are interested but doubtful they could compete with the Yankees or Sox. Have not heard any players but he might be gone with us replacing him with Mark Kotsay who was DFA by Boston

If we do the Cody Ross deal with the Yankees hearing could be a 3 way with Reds,Marlins and Yankees with us getting Arthur Rhodes and prospects

Cincy-No clue?? Possibly Jeremy Hermida
NY-Cody Ross and Harang or Arroyo
Florida-Arthur Rhodes,a player most likely a bat, and prospects

Carl Pavano is almost 80% gonna be back with us. We are working out a deal with Cleveland with the prospect we send them depending on how much they pay on his contract.

So we are currently looking for pitching with Carl Pavano and Arthur Rhodes as targets and if we make a deal possibly Mark Kotsay as a veteran OF

See, I don't fully understand the lack of power comment. He still slugged .470.

He also slugged .473 his final 39 games

When he came off the DL initially, all his power was gone... but it came back
--------------------
I swear to Hanley, if Kotsay is brought in I will slap a random child in public

Cody Ross for RHODES AND PROSPECTS? Just kill me now.

What would you say are the chances Cody actually gets dealt?

All things considered, they are probably pretty close.

Can't check now, but doesn't Cody have significantly more PAs?
