Mike Napoli was traded to the Blue Jays. Then he was traded to the Rangers.
I believe 12 minutes passed between deals.
When the music stops, grab a team.
The Blue Jays appeared to be out of the running for free-agent slugger Vladimir Guerrero after sending Vernon Wells to the Angels for Napoli and Juan Rivera. Now they might have an opening after sending Napoli to the Rangers earlier today for reliever Frank Francisco.
Rangers president Nolan Ryan stated yesterday that he retained interest in Guerrero. Now it appears that's no longer true.
Are the Angels still an option?
Meanwhile, the Orioles are prepared to give their DH at-bats to Luke Scott and let Felix Pie and Nolan Reimold handle left field. They're also refusing to close the door on Guerrero. You know, just in case.
Napoli might want to keep his suitcase packed. You know, just in case.
