T.R. Sullivan's blog post this morning includes some trade talk:
I'm not sure if the more significant Otsuka interest stems from the notion that he'd be less expensive, because he's not a closer, or because he'd be under team control through 2009, meaning he isn't just a rental, like Gagne.
And no club is interested in Sammy? Gee, I wonder why that would be...
Sullivan and Durrett have now weighed in on the "he won't be released" side, with Grant on the "he will be released" side.
If he's not released, that's bad news for Jason Botts, unless the Rangers have already decided to keep him around all of 2008 as their DH.
