    Anyways, unless I'm confused as to how this whole process works I doubt players of Orlando Cabrera's calibre warrant a visit from his handlers. Which isn't to say that I believe any of this Pujols stuff, as far as I can tell this guy has about as much 'insider' information as you and I.
    Agreed on both points.

    Yeah that is true about Cabrera always being linked to the Jays. Thought the same thing about his agents making their way up here to constrcut a deal.

    I'm hoping against hope they're here to discuss an extension for Votto. ray:

    much more interested in fielder. a recent survey of mlb execs stated they feel more value will come via fielder also
    i was about to post just that, i dont think we should sign fielder or pujols because of the HGH testing. We don't know if either of them did it so if i am rogers, i won't be throwing my money around this offseason.

    Nice...then 2 team options for 35 each and then a player option for the 4th...to match Jose time. Perfect...everyone get's what they want.

    Wait...then we can't have Cooper at first for the next 8 years...forget Prince!

    I don't see them bidding $200+ million on Pujols, but they may be after Beltran or someone else.

    ^^I don't recall anything even resembling 'rumblings' about Wells being moved. Even when we were all speculating what the Jays had given up to get Napoli I don't remember anyone even daring to speculate that it was Wells headed the other way.

    oh yeah, i am long time reader of this board. many will remember there was a thread with links to vague sources of a possible wells trade 2 weeks before it happened. 99% of posters laughed it off saying wells' contract unmovable. you must been one of them who scoffed at it?

    lol it's "low and behold". Anyways, I don't remember anything being written about the Wells deal prior to. I can't recall anytime there have been rumblings prior to a AA move. Speculation maybe but I can't remember anything concrete. Link(s)?

    Laughed rightly so too. That happened 1/2 because of a stupid GM and 1/2 just plain miracle. I wouldn't bet money on those type of deals happening again.

    I looked for thread titles with any indication towards a Wells rumour up to a month before the trade...nothin

    Ya the wells trade came out of the blue. Im on the fence with Pujols though. hes probably going to get A-rod esque contract. I just dont want us to be stuck with that

    OMFG!! I knew this would happen.

    I was talking...suggesting....making trade suggestion on moving Wells contract right after Rios was moved. I was burned at the stake. "Oh, Wells contract is un-trade-able...you don't know anything...bla,bla". Everyone here disagreed with me...everyone. You know who you are.

    I'd have to look up the posts but, I remember saying something like..."if we eat 30-40 mill and send a few A prospects we could do it". Which made sense. What AA did was pure Fracking genius.

    I don't want anyone saying that it wasn't suggested or pushed on these boards.

    Man...you guys.
