Day 2 in Indy

  • Gordon Wittenmyer says the Cubs are close to a "two-team" deal that would send Bradley packing!! Wittenmyer says via twitter that the deal could be done tonight.
  • Joel Sherman reports that the Rangers are no longer interested in Bradley.
  • Tim Brown from Yahoo thinks that Milton could be going to Seattle for Carlos Silva.
  • The Tribune is now also reporting that the Cubs could have interest in Melky Cabrera, but Curtis Granderson to the Cubs is not likely, as he is close to signing with New York.
  • Rosenthal gives us this breakdown: if the Cubs save a large amount on Bradley, the will be interested in Cameron, if they save a modest amount Marlon Byrd is a better fit, and if they save a small amount, Scott Podsednik makes sense. It all depends on the Bradley deal.
  • The Cubs, Mariners Red Sox, and Yankees are interested in Mike Cameron.
  • The North Siders like Kevin Millwood, but the Rangers are not interested in a Millwood for Bradley trade, according to Ken Rosenthal.
  • Jon Paul Morosi reports that the Cubs are one of many teams with "varying levels of interest" in J.J. Putz. The White Sox, D'back, Rangers, Nationals, and Tigers are some of the other clubs listed.
  • There was talk of adding a post season award specifically for relief pitcher today at the BBWAA meetings according to Bruce Miles. Miles says one possible name is the Holtzman Award, in honor of the write who invented the save.
  • Write Bill Madden was elected to the Hall of Fame today.
  • The Brewers are interested in bringing Kevin Gregg back to the NL Central. (Yes, as a Brewer).
  • Bruce Levine says that Jim Hendry has talked with the Rockies about their outfield depth.
  • The Padres are willing to trade Heath Bell, but the Cubs might not have the prospects that the Padres would want.
  • Brown now tweets that "nothing imminent, but the Cubs and M's are talking Bradley and Silva."
  • The Rangers and Rays are not close on Bradley, and Blue Jays officials have no comment.

I'll keep you posted on the Bradley front and more as the night moves on!
