Toronto Sun says Rios Deal Alive and Well!


quote:

RIOS DEAL

San Francisco Giants general manager Brian Sabean says that after signing free-agent
outfielder Aaron Rowand to a five-year deal, talks with the Jays were dead.

Well, going into the meeting the Giants said they needed to add two bats, at the meeting
they said they needed two hitters and since then they have added one. Don't be surprised
if the Alex Rios-for-Tim Lincecum talks re-surface before spring training.



]Rios for Lincecum

Maybe Brute, who a few years ago was the best internet source on Giants's rumors, has a clue as to the validity of this one?

Do not suggest trading for somebody for only two years (unless the Giants dump a crappy contract)

That's just a writer speculating, and hoping that the Jays would be lucky enough to get Lincecum. Wishful thinking on his behalf.

I would not call myself the best internet source of all [sign in to see URL] just know where to look . emoticon

However, what few actual sources I have say that Rios for Lincecum is dead. The Giants would listen to Rios offers for non-Lincecum/Cain [sign in to see URL], funnily enough, none of those have happened.

The only way I could see this deal coming back to life is if A) the Giants were to acquire another starting pitcher, someone like Blanton, to take the rotation spot of Lincecum.
B) and the Jays increased their offer. A straight Rios for Lincecum deal doesn't work for the Giants, especially in light of the haul that the A's got for Haren. At the very least the Jays would have to give up Rios and either a starting pitcher or quality relief pitcher to make this deal work.

Just sayin'
