Following up on my post last night about the four-player trade for Erik bedard, I checked the local papers this morning for any additional information. The Cincinnati ones had no new baseball stories since December 9th. However, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun offers this update on the leading suitors for each of the Orioles' three big players.
While Mr. Zrebiec does not mention the specific names I heard yesterday (Joey Votto, Homer Bailey and Josh Hamilton), he does include the Reds as one of the leading suitors. Maybe that 75% figure mentioned yesterday is as solid as it gets in the trade rumor mongering.
