In Pt. II of this thread some people were talking about how they don't want to see more trades for B and C prospects who have no chance of making it in the bigs. If they had no chance of making it in the bigs, they wouldn't be B and C prospects, they would be unrated prospects. Any prospect C+ or better is a good prospect assuming they are graded accurately. A B prospect is supposed to mean it's a prospect with a good chance of being a solid everyday player and many B or lower players have ended up being excellent players. Doug Fister, for example, was never rated above C, I think we'd all probably take him on this team though.

Yeah, this is ridiculous. In the span of three hours the Yankees interest in Rios was both renewed and pretty much over. These guys are just makin' stuff up I think!

6:16pm: ESPN's Buster Olney tweets that the Yankees aren't interested in Rios having already acquired Alfonso Soriano with Curtis Granderson on the mend.
6:11pm: The Pirates' interest in Rios is losing steam, tweets MLB.com's Scott Merkin.
3:27pm: The Yankees have renewed interest in Rios, tweets MLB.com's Scott Merkin, though he'd have to approve a trade. On Friday, Rios bristled at the suggestion he'd rejected potential a deal to the Yanks.

Bradley's probably the only prospect that would elicit a response of laughter if Rick asked. I would be ecstatic with a package built around any of Eaton (OF), Owings (SS), Davidson (3B), or Trahan (C). They've also got a lot of lefty starters that project well. Maybe we could nab one of those.

I always take Olney with a grain of salt, as he's keyed in with all the agents, and most of what he puts out is spin.

Merkin is the more reliable source here.

Yeah, the big guys like Olney are merely satisfying their audience with the high volume stuff for more hits, that's his job. While Buster may break something sooner about our club, Merkin will put out the facts as soon as they are confirmed from the club itself, because that's his job.

Hearing buzz about 3-way trade talks: Peavy to #dbacks, Kennedy to #angels. Not sure who #whitesox would get.

Why not? The Dbacks owe us for Hudson.

Doesn't Rios have a no trade clause to New York?

Interestingly enough, one of the prospects the Sox are interested in is David Holmberg.
