I got in my car, turned it on, and just so happens AM670 was on. Who do I hear? Mike Murphy. No, no, he wasn't talking about the White Sox. Believe it or not, he was talking about the Cubs! No I'm serious...

Getting to the point, he said that he saw Peter Gammons on ESPN saying that he PROJECTS Carlos Beltran will sign with the Cubs.

At this point Mike Murphy orgasmed about 4 times and announced that the next 10 callers would all get free Score gift sets valued at $199.99.... (i keed i keed)

He then also went on to say that Gammons projects the Cubs to trade Paul Bako and Juan Cruz to the Diamondbacks for Randy Johnson and Matt Mantei. This makes complete sense, Diamondbacks get an ace in the making in return and Bako solves their catcher problems completely. They also free up $25 million in salary. Man Hendry knocks another great trade up. Cubs are going all the way. Gammons also reported that the White Sox would trade away all their stars and rebuild. Gammons last projection had him announcing how bad he hates JR and the White Sox. (whole paragraph = joke)

Man, Harold Reynolds is such a great analyst. I hope he takes over the show all by himself. Carl Ravejich (sp?) ain't too bad either.

Glad to hear that. This means the only time Beltran will be in the outfield at The Urinal will be when the Sox play there.....................

How often is Gammons actually right when he makes such predictions?

Pardon me if my Cubs knowledge is incorrect, but didn't they trade Juan Cruz to Atlanta last year?

At least if they get Beltran they won't sign Ordonez.

Seems like every time Boras has a marquee player you hear a lot of spurious rumors about how many teams have a chance of signing them. I think he uses Gammons and other lazy reporters to spread false rumors as a way of driving up the bids.
