The Latest of a Bradley trade:
The Cubs are really trying to trade Milton Bradley by the end of the GM meeting and Phil Rogers says the Cubs want Bradley of there roster in the next 36 hours. I sure hope so.
Bruce Levine said that Jim Hendry and the Rays GM stood up pass midnight working out a Bradley trade. Burrell will come over in the trade, they are just trying to work out the contract situation and Foxports is reporting that Bradely could restructure his contract so the trade works with the Rays.
Bruce Levine is reporting that the Rangers are in the thick of things and most likely will trade Millwood for Bradley who is making 12 million in 2010. I would be in favor of that.
Jon Heyman said Texas and Tampa Bay is the likely destination for Bradley. He is probably right on the button.
As it stands right now, Jim Hendry is still talking with the Rays and Rangers.
More from GM Meetings or other tidbits:
GM Jim Hendry said he hopes to have a couple more deals in the next few weeks before the winter meetings.
Bruce Levine stated in his chat that the Cubs will have interest free agent relief pitcher Mike Gonzalez. I would be in favor of that also.
In the same report from Fox sports, it says the Cubs will have interest in free agent outfielder Marlon Byrd. Byrd is 32 years old and gad his best year last year. I would try to trade for a CF first, if you can't find one then sign him. Byrd will be the CF with Kosuke moving back to right.
I will keep you posted as we await the Bradley trade.
