- Pie will have surgery to correct testicular torsion and will be sidelined three to five days.
- The rumor that the Cubs offered Fuld and Marquis for Crisp is just that and it seems the Sox are willing to give Colon a chance over trading for Marquis.
- Brian Roberts rumors have died down again but there were O's scouts watching Gallagher yesterday since he is considered to be the main piece in the potential trade. Peter Gammons had something good to say tho-
The Cubs will eventually get Brian Roberts. Andy MacPhail has to decide whom he wants. But the Cubs are convinced it will happen.
- The Cubs are looking to get a switch hitting or right handed bat for the outfield. A guy that can play all outfield positions. The Cubs currently do not have one on there roster. They have inquired on Byrd( asking price too high), Crisp( asking price to high, wants to start somewhere), Payton( could be apart of deal for Roberts), Willits( currently not available), Spilborghs( currently not available), and Ryan Freel( who the Reds will trade but unlikely within the division).
