Eve of the Meetings

My father just called to say he was listening to the radio in Chicago and he heard a real ******* of a trade rumor: Barry Zito to Chicago, Kerry Wood to Texas, assorted young guys to Oakland. I haven’t seen it repeated anywhere else yet, so I’m just going to go ahead and mention it so I can feel smart if it turns out to be true.

Meanwhile, the latest news on the Rockies is both good and bad. They’re definitely talking to Byung-Hyun Kim, which is good. But they still want Shawn Estes, which is bad. Esteban Loaiza’s contract has effectively removed mentions of Colorado in connection with Matt Morris. Oh well, that was a pipe dream. Cubs reliever Todd Wellemeyer is mentioned as a trade target, which is interesting. Wellemeyer is affordable and changes speeds well.

Hooray for Colorado losing 70-3 in the Big 12 Championship Game!
