Not to get too picky, since we all make boneheaded predictions (Edwin Jackson as NL ROY??!!! What was I thinking?!), but here is something from Gammons’ April 4th column. I like the #1 listing the most. I wonder how it will finally play out. My guess is that at least two of the guys get traded. Not Griffey, though.
10 players likely to be traded by July 31
1. Junior Griffey, Cincinnati
2. Jason Kendall, Pittsburgh
3. Kris Benson, Pittsburgh
4. Ben Sheets, Milwaukee
5. Jose Cruz Jr., Tampa Bay
6. Ugueth Urbina, Detroit
7. Carlos Delgado, Toronto. If he’ll go.
8. Jerry Hairston Jr., Baltimore
9. Jose Vidro, Montreal
10. Steve Trachsel, Mets
