Bucco Blog: Gonzo a Yank Pending Physical

From Bucco Blog:

The three-team swap between the Yankees, Braves, and Pirates is now
said by one source to be nearly complete as all sides work on minor

The Pirates will end up with LaRoche.

I say that gently because there are a few versions floating.. one
that involves the Angels from one source and two versions that involves
the Braves from two separate sources – one of which is the original
source we inititally broke the LaRoche deal at the GM meetings to you
with. There is also a straightup Pirates/Yankees version from one
source that I place little credibility in.

However, since the Pirates recently asked for, and reviewed,
LaRoche’s medicals, we have to assume this deal is with the Braves and
our original source tonight is the correct one. No matter which version
is correct, Gonzalez will be a Yankee if he passes the physical.

For now, it seems LaRoche will be a Pirate by Christmas, Gonzalez
will be a Yankee, and Cabrera a Brave along with at least a second yet
unidentified Pirate.

  • Hmmmmmmm. Mike Gonzalez would be a nice little Christmas gift under the Yankee tree. If this comes to fruition, am looking forward to the first Gonzo-Big Papi matchup.

  • Pete’s on vacation and has not researched it, but as far as he knows, that deal is speculation.
