Silent but deadly. Deadly silent.
Things that keep popping into mind as I trove the major league news sites and cable channels listening for any movement on the Teixeira front.
Just a few days ago, you couldn’t read a single site or story about the trade deadline without Teixeira’s name in the first few paragraphs – if not the headline.
Now, there’s rumors that a deal with the Braves (a deal I didn’t like the sounds of) is falling apart. The Dodgers have bowed out of the race as they suddenly need pitching; I’ll always wonder if Billingsly and Loney was possible back in June before Tex got hurt(sure seemed like it when Nomar was moved to third). The Yankees and Red Sox seem to have backed away, as did the Tigers long ago. No news on the Angels.
Can Little Jon DanielsHart pull a rabit out of his hat? In my book, he needs to – or it should be his job.
And, what’s the latest on getting something for Gagne, Benoit or even Laird? Too quiet. Much too quiet!
Scaring me. We’ve got to get a pitcher for Tex – and the time is now.
