Two days ago, Ken Davidoff had this to say:
THREE TEAMS LOOKING TO DEAL VETERANS
1. White Sox. They’d love to find a taker for Jermaine Dye, Paul Konerko or Jim Thome. Konerko and Thome have no-trade protection.
2. Rockies. In addition to Matt Holliday, Garrett Atkins and Willy Taveras can be had.
3. Marlins. They’re managing payroll again, and they’ll trade Kevin Gregg and Scott Olsen for a decent return.
So far, Davidoff was correct on Holliday and Olsen. Now, these predictions may have been obvious, and certainly don’t make him Nostradamus. But I’m betting that, at the end of the Hot Stove Season, when we look back at all the buzz, Davidoff will lead the league in rumors converted to reality. Over the past few years he’s been one of the journalists you can bank on for buzz. Though he may not always have the most information, the newest scoop, or the wildest rumors, when he writes something, there’s a pretty good chance it’s happening.
