Larry Stone provides a wealth of information concerning the M's attempt to trade for Justin Upton. Dave Cameron chimes in with his read of the situation. I think there is a chance that this deal still gets done - the M's just need to make Upton one of those "can't refuse" offers. At least the team is trying to do something to improve.
Was sad to see Edgar treading water in the HOF balloting. Also very sad to see Biggio and Bagwell get denied. Not so sure about Bonds and the Rocket, but I'm leaning toward saying yes to both. They were both dominant players - to pretend that they never played is pretty lame. Probably time for the HOF to take a look at the process - the BBWA clearly failed this year.
