The Mets make sense because they've got a bunch of overpaid veterans of their own to get rid of, none of whom could possibly be of any real interest to the Cubs. Maybe Cliff Floyd--he's okay. The Rockies make sense because they're the only team that should really be trying to get Sammy Sosa. But the Mariners? Does that not sound like a disaster waiting to happen?
The only real possibility I can think of is a Sammy for Bret Boone trade, with some cash going the Mariners' way and maybe Scott Spezio going to the Cubs as well.
I care deeply for both teams, and I really hate the sound of that trade.
For the Mariners, the latest rumor I've heard is Ryan Klesko and Sean Burroughs from the Padres for Randy Winn and Gil Meche, according to the Sporting News.
I would love to see Sammy playing for the M's. Boone could use a change of scenery... I just see the M's giving up on free agents if this deal was made.
I agree with Joe. Let the Yanks have Sosa.
