StoneLarry: Source: Mariners will trade Carlos Silva to Cubs for Milton Bradley, may be announced later today
This makes no sense for the Cubs whatsoever, yet their fan base will be happy to have dealt the better player for someone who "isn't a cancer". Of course, that's selective memory because SIlva was quoted as wanting to choke a teammate -- presumably Ichiro of all people -- in 2008.
The Rays options from here are pretty simple. Either keep Burrell and allow him to bounce back, or trade him for salary relief and pursue another free agent DH.
