There’s a new Tampa Bay Devil Rays Rumor posted over at YourSportsFix.com and it’s a big one. New York Met fans might want not want to read it though 😉
The Tampa Bay Devil Rays are reportedly shopping a couple of their young outfielders. Rocco Baldelli and/or Carl Crawford are reportedly available via trade. Baldelli hit .302 last year, driving in 57 runs, however, he played in fewer than 100 games due to injury. Crawford performed slightly better, hitting .305, driving in 77 RBIs, and played in 151 games. Both players are 25 and considered 5 tool players making them desirable targets for many teams. There’s just one problem… the Devil Rays will likely be seeking young quality pitchers in return and that’s a commodity that very few teams have, and even fewer are willing to part with.
No, of course they didn’t win THAT bidding… The Devil Rays have reportedly won the rights to negotiate with Japanese third baseman, Akinori Iwamura. Iwamura was rumored to have been pursued by the Padres, Red Sox and Indians, however it appears all fell short of the DRays’ bid. The left handed batting Iwamura is a career .300 hitter, however, it is unclear how that average will translate to the major leagues.
No word yet on "reports" that the Boston Red Sox bid on the entire nation of Japan saying "We figured it’d be cheaper."
The Tampa Bay Devil Rays appear poised to poach players from the St. Louis Cardinals. The D-Rays have been in contact with the reps for three of the World Series champs’ free agent starting pitchers. While Mark Mulder headlines the group, the Devil Rays have also contacted Jeff Weaver as well as Jason Marquis. Tampa certainly needs to upgrade its pitching, however it is unlikely to be able to compete with most other clubs for the higher priced pitchers on the market so they are expected to go after veteran pitchers, hoping to find a few bargains to shore up their young rotation.
