Wanna know the three teams with the best chance of meeting the Rockies played through Ubaldo Jimenez has. Check out the Yankees the Tigers and the reds. The concern with him and it's is that he's not back to his 2009 early 2010 form. His average fastball velocity was 96 miles per hour during that period now it's 94. As though has a 2.5 six ERA in his last nine starts and one scout told me. He's not to his ace form yet but he's getting close. Could end up trading Ricky the last two if they failed to get back to 500. The Rangers have shown interest in the last of its last winter and the Yankees could try to reunite him with Joseph Girardi. But if the Marlins trade the last go it won't be one of their classic salary dumps it would be done for baseball reasons. The Marlins actually plan to increase their payroll as they move into their ballpark next season. Could be major players in free agency this winter. You could end up sellers but that we're trying to land K rod for the Brewers who've been at the final hour. K rod of course had a connection with rays manager Joseph Maddon from their days together with the Angels. Now if the rays sell it is doubtful they'll move any of their starting pitchers. Center fielder BJ Upton though is another story. In theory at least Upton could generate interest from three NL east clubs the nationals the Braves and the Phillies. He's been crushing left handed pitching all season he's been hitting well on the road. Any offers significant value with his defense and his base running. Those first place Pirates are aggressively pursuing upgrades but keep in mind they also should improve from within. Pittsburgh has a number of injured players who should be coming off the disabled list but they top -- -- -- all indoor and Evan meek among them. They've also got Pedro Alvarez get himself back together at triple. For the Pirates clearly could use of that but they're not that keen on the cubs' Carlos Pena. Too many swings and misses from Pena his defense is not what it once was. If so what the Pirates believe batted eighth inning reliever would be the best way for them to improve the team. But there's still looking for that big bat is well.
