I would assume that Jose Vidro is officially off the trade market as he just signed a 4 Year $30M extension with the Expos. :(:

I'm not sure we would have explored him anyways. Besides whether or not Maggs returns, the primary offseason acquisitions should be pitching from the FA market. Besides, thus far, Willie has done pretty well. Some rookie mistakes, but he looks pretty good.

Wait until Lip sees this, the Expos signing their potential free agents, and the Sox not signing theirs :D:

Well Dick it is interesting that a team eligible for movement and or contraction after 2006 can do it don't you think?

Maybe this should go in the Parking Lot. However, many here really want Vidro on the Sox. Sorry to those who do.

Can't wait to see Vidro in that Washington Senators uniform in 2006.

Reason:

I will wager you a decent amount of money (fifty bucks?) that almost immediately after the CBA expires and the MLPBA no longer has any legal say in contraction, two teams will be gutted perhaps four.

My bets: Twins (Pohland wants the money), Devil Rays, Expos (if they haven't been moved to D.C.) and Florida (no new stadium).

If D.C. sticks then Oakland gets Bogarted. (no new stadium...)

Do you think it was coincidence that the owners insisted in getting that clause inserted into the CBA about the union no longer having any say on contraction issues?
