Might as well put him on the Astros team plane. No way they don't win the bid for him.

Sources: #Cubs working hard to land #Tigers’ Justin Wilson. At least one team involved thinks CHC will be landing spot. Others involved.

Watching Dodgers vs Giants. The trade expert they just interviewed said he's not hearing much interest at all for Verlander.

Confirming that a deal for Justin Wilson will happen tonight barring snag. Not Astros, I've been told. Cubs most aggressive to this point

I guess I don't understand all the vitriol towards Avila. If teams are asking you to eat 30 million of the contract, why not just keep him for another year and sell him as a rental next year. You can't just dump him for nothing. This rebuild is going to take longer than a year and waiting a year to deal him isn't gonna make that much difference. He's more tradable next year with that contact. Idiots like Valenti are just talking out of their asses.

Better not sell small here. They can trade him in the winter or next July for less. The extra year of control should buy more

With reports of a possible Justin Wilson/Jeimer Candelario swap between #Cubs and #Tigers, worth noting Candelario not in Triple-A lineup...

Source: Cubs could send No. 1 prospect Candelario to Tigers for Wilson/Avila. Nothing final. I think @JonHeyman mentioned Candelario 1st.

The #Dodgers and #Cubs are in a bidding war now for #Tigers reliever Justin Wilson. Wilson will definitely be gone by tomorrow

So 2 Cubs prospects -- 3B Jeimer Candelario, OF Mark Zagunis --pulled from Iowa lineup. Wonder if J-Wilson, Alex Avila are being packaged

Have to wait and see the whole package. And this may be misplaced but I'll trust Avila, an actual MLB GM over the magazine guys.

Avila has not impressed me with his pitching eye but he does seem to have a better track record with hitters.

From Jon Heyman,.....

Candelario, 23, made his debut last summer, filling in for a then-injured Chris Coghlan.

After tearing it up in Triple-A Iowa over the first month of the current season, Candelario received his first promotion of the year back up to the Cubs. He played in 11 games, and while he didn’t necessarily make waves, he did hit the first home run of his career. With Kris Bryant at the hot corner everyday, it would appear Candelario is roadblocked for the time being. The 23-year-old infielder became the top prospect in the Cubs organization once Chicago dealt star slugger Eloy Jimenez across town to the White Sox.

I just laugh at idiots like Valenti that go bezerk because a player hasn't been traded 6 days before the deadline. Now it appears the Astros, Cubs, and Dodgers are upping the anti...
