Omar Minaya has been busy today, and has talked with three teams about pitching. The lobby buzz had him talking with the Chicago White Sox for Javier Vazquez or Freddy Garcia. He also talked with Cleveland for Jake Westbrook or lefty Cliff Lee, and Baltimore for Rodrigo Lopez.
The White Sox options would be the way to go if there was a choice. Two scouts told me Lastings Milledge was mentioned in the Chicago and Cleveland trade, but Milledge isn’t even on the Orioles’ board.
I’ll be speaking with Minaya in about 15 minutes then get back to you.
