Call me crazy [in unison: “You’re crazy!”], but for some reason I have a decent feeling that the M’s might actually make a move this year. Perhaps it’s just some sort of residual optimism left over from the Brian Giles rumor this week. Now, sure, that rumor has been pretty much shot down, but at the same time, it had to come from somewhere or something, right? Perhaps Gillick isn’t as quiet on the trade front as we might have thought.
All that said, if the move is trading for BJ Surhoff or a player of his ilk, I’m not interested.
[SOLD! In seconds! Man, do we have great readers] I need to get rid of two tickets, blah blah blah, details deleted. I’m flying out of town to attend funeral services in Alaska for my Grandpa (a long-time M’s fan), so I can’t attend (though I can meet for the transaction). Also, it means this weekend I’m not going to be answering email at all. As opposed to occasionally managing to answer some email. And for obvious reasons, job email’s top-of-the-queue when I get back.
