Winter Meetings just started up, and the rumors ARE FLYING! Here's a thread for the big, fat, juicy ones!
A source indicated late Tuesday that Seattle might have interest in sending slugger Richie Sexson to the Giants and reliever Rafael Soriano to the Braves. In return, the Mariners would receive a starting pitcher (Tim Hudson) and a first baseman (Adam LaRoche).
The Braves -- who are shopping for relief help -- would then also receive relief pitcher Armando Benitez from the Giants.
Holy **** that'd be an extremely awesome deal for Seattle. It was reported earlier this offseason that Atlanta wants to unload Hudson's contract, and they have a prying need in the pen...so this isn't all smoke and mirrors. SF has been after Sexson since the deadline, too.
A TOR starter and a younger, cheaper 1st baseman? Where do I sign?!?!?
