Hot Stove Report

We've yet to officially kick off season 3, but the rumors about some of the star players are already being mentioned in trade rumors.

We'll start with the defending National League champs, the Fargo Dirtbags. Rumor has it that SP/RP Christopher Siddall may be available in a trade. Fargo could definitely use a bat (or several) and may be dangling Siddall to try and get a big-time offensive player.

Word out of Houston is that stud SP Matty Eusebio could be available. GM jmagliaro has gone on record stating that he's planning for Houston to 3-peat in the NL South, so this is not a fire sale/rebuilding type trade if it does happen. Many teams have expressed interest, but it's possible that jmagliaro may just be gauging interest at this point. Chicago GM mfoster55 has gone on record stating that his Snake Tamers would love to have Eusebio on the South Side for season 3.

Even the average fan would have to figure that something would have to change in Trenton after last season's collapse. WTRA 550 AM, the local station that carries the Traffic games, is reporting that King Winn is on the block and that he could be headed to Monterrey. GM gumbercules confirmed that Winn could be on his way out but denied that a deal with the World Series champions is imminent.
