Hey Kenz afan, you have mentioned a few times your desire for Bowden to trade for Soriano and Texiara. Do you have reason to believe that this deal is a possibility? I knew that the Rangers were possibly willing to move Soriano, but I can't believe that Texiara is available. If there is a way to acquire those two it should have been done yesterday. In my opinion, NOBODY on our roster is safe.
I don't understand how everyone know about Texas having made it known that Soriano is available, yet none of those people haven't read or seen a couple of articles in the Texas papers saying, in essence, if the offer was right, and because they wont be able to afford Teixeira in the upcoming years, they would consider trading him. At one point they also considered trading Mench. So since we have some decent players to offer, why not go for the big trade and give them Wilky, Vidro, Johnson, Armas and a prospect or two for Soriano, Teixeira and Mench. Teixeira and Mench are from Maryland and Delaware respectively, trading for them makes not only good marketing and WINNING sense to me.
We have what it would take to make the deal, and I believe that lefty Matt White would make a more than decent 5th starter in place of Armas.
But, my wishing for it to happen is gonna stay just that, wishing... Because so far, from what I've seen of JB and what he calls impact moves are nothing more than moving players up and down the minor league ladder... Jim Bowden hasn't got the balls to make a deal like that...
