Via Josh Norris, senior vice president of baseball operations Mark Newman confirmed that David Adams will ready in time for Spring Training, but Jeremy Bleich is going to have to wait until midseason. Adams, of course, had that broken ankle, while Bleich had surgery to repair some sort of tear in his pitching shoulder.

    Centerpiece for Greinke, make it happen.

      Haha. I know Dayton Moore isn’t known for making good decisions but…

      • Mattchu12

        Kenny Williams is smarter than Moore, and he decided to trade Nick Swisher and Kanekoa Texeira to the Yankees for Wilson Betemit, Jeff Marquez, and Jhony Nunez.

        Then again, Jack Zduriencik picked Justin Smoak over Jesus Montero.

        I’ve given up predicting trades.

  • All Star Carl

    Greinke doesn’t want to play in NY.

    • CapitalT

      With 6 starters, we will only need him for away games

  • Matt Imbrogno

    So trade Laird ASAP or wait and see if his value can go up (or at least stay constant) before the trade deadline?

  • Brian in NH

    Bleich and that shoulder…hope he gets right after that. Shoulders are hard to come back from

    I look at the 106 games played in 2010 by Huffman, Kearns, Nunez, and Russo and picture Laird getting that time in 2012 at 3B and the OF…………NICE!!!
