With six weeks to go before the trade deadline, there seems to be a lot of talk already of available players. After losing 2 out of 3 at home to the Chicago Cubs, Toronto Jays AJ Burnett was expressing openness to a potential trade. he said "...to have the opportunity to go to a place where baseball is breakfast, lunch and dinner, that would be awesome." Could he have been talking about the Cubs, who would certainly like to add some reliable depth to their rotation?
Speaking of the Cubs, scouts were at the Giants game over the weekend looking at switch-hitting Randy Winn to shore things up with Soriano out for at least another month.
Is Griffey open to a trade to the Devil Rays? Supposedly, he is, according to "friends".
In other trade talk, the Astros and Pirates are making virtually everyone available as the deadline apporaches. They both need major overhauls and are not in denial on that front.
