I am stationed in Delaware so I was unable to attend Fan Fest, however I was watching online when I had the opportunity. A fan asked Jack Z if there were any free agent negotiations/Trades in the works, and he stated that he could pretty much guarantee that something was going to go down over the next week if not the next couple of days. Pretty telling for Jack, seeing as how he is traditionally a bit tight lipped. Have you heard anything? I do recall him saying that their next acquisition would probably be a "young" pitcher. I would presume that he wouldn't have claimed that something was going to happen shortly if it was just going to be a minor league, camp fodder sort of addition. Just curious is all.

I think Tampa and Milwaukee are good destinations for Carp. Both have SP depth and could use a bat at 1st. We also have depth in the bullpen with Moran and LaFramboise just about ready to make the jump. Tampa could likely use the bullpen arms since they moved Davis to KC.
What would the cost be for Cobb, Neimann or Archer?

Daisuke Matsuzaka's future is behind him, he should probably go home to Japan where he could probably get a decent contract. I'd prefer Kawasaki, at least he was entertaining.
I share Jason's preference for Chris Capuano or Rick Porcello. Wonder if Porcello is the "young pitcher" Z was referring to?
I keep expecting to see Texas do something to make up for their losses of players this off season. Don't think they want to go with what they have today.
Who do you think will be the first prospect the M's bring up to the big club Jason?

Speaking of Carp, the Brewers were reported today of needing a 1B. Last year there were a number of NL teams that were interested in Carp. I don't know what the Brewers have that would interest Z, but he would know more than anyone that he'd want to pull away from the Brew Crew.
I'm in favor of Capuano personally, and the last 5th rotation spot worked about through competition in ST. Not interested in Dice-K!

The Brewers have several options for 1B With Gamel, Greene and there #4 prospect in Hunter Morris who is a beast. I would not be suprised if Morris wins the job and when Hart comes back he maybe out of a place to be in Milwaukee.

Two things: I'm assuming Carp has to be traded seeing as though he's out of options, wouldn't make it through waivers, and seems like he's the odd man out on the roster. Do you think the time table for him to be traded is in spring training after teams see how plays in camp? Or is there a chance he makes the roster in lieu of Smoak?
Also to JAC or anyone else, I saw it listed on Jason's twitter or maybe ESPN that a loophole that the Mets and Mariners could exploit with Bourn is to sign him to a MiLB deal and then the draft pick wouldn't be an issue. My question is how does that work? Can he only sign a 1 year deal, and can they basically sign him to a MiLB with a large guaranteed salary he would likely command? And would the Commissioner's office even allow that to happen? Seems like an interesting loophole
