Shapiro was just on WTAM.....nothing really new.....
But some interesting things mentioned. Shapiro confirmed they made a bid on Matsuke (sp) and that they are still considering making a bid on Imura.
But, the most interesting thing to me was his statement that "it is safe to say that we will probably have to give up a guy we do not want to give up to fill another hole."
Top candidates on who that "guy" may be would probably be Garko, Carmona, Lee and Byrd. Possibly even one of Crowe, Miller or Lofgren who are untouchables.
Looks like Shapiro is aiming for another big trade.....could the Garko to Oakland for relievers become a reality? Or, one of the "guys" and some filler for a closer or OF corner bat?
