Other teams back in the mix?

It appears that the stalled (or extremely slow moving) talks between the Mariners and the Santana trade to the Mets may have thrown a few teams back into the mix for Erik Bedard.

Maybe MacPhail is a genius. Holding out until Santana gets trade and have an offer from another team out in public can get some other teams involved and try to top the M’s offer. Maybe its just lucky timing. Maybe a deal still doesn’t happen. But Bedard is now the best pitcher on the market.

I could see these teams in a possible mix

Reds

Cubs

Cards

Angels

M’s (duuuuuuuuuuuuh)

Indians 

Dodgers

Red Sox

Yankees

Maybe the White Sox, Phillies, or Braves

I think that the Mariners deal still happens. MacPhail might just see if some team swoops in during the next day or two and tops the M’s offer.

Roch still thinks this happens too…

We’ve been startled by enough false alarms when it comes to trades, but people I’ve spoken with over the last 24 hours sound more encouraged about Erik Bedard going to the Mariners. I still believe it’s going to happen.
