SammyStock 2004! Day One

Tuesday, December 14, 2004

Hey Hey, Cubs Fans! Welcome to SammyStock 2004! Where legitimacy isn't the concern... its just rumors, free, casual rumors, with whoever happens to be in the majors.

We've got a lot of great suitors out there, so lets get Rumor mongering! Yeah!

Lets give it up for...

...The Mariners

The Cubs would package The Farns with Sammy in return for 42 year old Jamie Moyer. He of the 7-13 record with a 5.21 ERA, making $7 million last year. The Cubs would also receive Raul Ibanez and his .353 OBP and 16 home runs in 123 games last year. The Cubs would then have the option of giving the Mariners about $5 million in cash, or taking Bret Boone and his .317 OBP, .423 SLG, and $8 million salary.

... The Athletics

Dealing with Billy Beane could be a little tricky, so the Cubs would ship Sammy and Carlos Zambrano, and $15 million, to the A's for Tim Hudson, and Mark Kotsay ($6.5 million in '04, with an .829 OPS.) The Cubs may need to throw in a top pitching prospect as well.

... The Rangers

Sammy, Derrek Lee, and $5 million for Chan Ho Park, and Alfonso Soriano. Park is coming off a year in which he earned $13.9 million while compiling a 4-7 record with a 5.46 ERA, while Soriano is toting a $7.4 million salary with one more year of arbitration. He had an .807 OPS last season with 28 dingers, 18 steals, and a .324 OBP.

... The Angels

The Angels have informed the Cubs they will take Sammy if the Cubs will write a check for $36 million. The Angels would also like a throw-in, such as Trenidad Hubbard.

Thats the AL West. Day Two will cover the AL Central.

Who would play first then under the Rangers rumor?

I don't know, but I wouldn't want to trade Zambrano, maybe if they traded someone like Patterson and Sammy, just don't get rid of the rotation!!
