Jason Bartlett:

  • Nick Cafardo reported that he Orioles, Giants and Nationals have shown “a lot of interest” in Bartlett.

Players that could be coming to the Rays



  1. phil says:

    hopefully Soriano signs with the white sox ..first round pick plus comp pick ..and Choate/ hawpe sign major league deals 2 more comp picks

  2. Carey says:

    Any teeth to the rumor about Justin Upton being available via trade (and the Rays's reported interest)?

    • Cork Gaines says:

      He is available, and I'm sure the Rays tested the waters. But apparently they are asking for a ton in return so doesn't seem like a good match.

      • Carey says:

        Maybe I'm crazy, but I'd part with Jennings and Shields/Garza for him. Or at least seriously consider it. Hellickson and Davis are off the table.

  3. Gatorbuc15 says:

    As long as he doesn't sign wit either the Yankees or Red Sox I'll be fine.
