Finally got someone to talk about the deal: “It’s bull$#$”.
There you have it. I’m guessing Meche is on the hill for the M’s on Friday.
Apparently, KJR was told that Gil Meche is not available to speak to the media today, and this has fueled rumors that the Mike Sweeney trade could go down today. I was told several days ago that the rumor had no teeth and haven’t bothered mentioning it. Today, no one is willing to comment. We’ll let you know if we hear anything more specific.
Personally, I’m rooting for it to not go down. Sweeney’s contract is out of place in this market, and giving up anything of value for him isn’t a very good idea. I have no problem moving Meche, who is also overpriced and ridiculously overrated by fans who simply can’t understand that he’s never been a very effective major league pitcher for any length of time, but I just don’t want Mike Sweeney’s contract.
