Talking to Krivsky
I spoke with Wayne Krivsky this afternoon. He did not sound like a man on the verge of a deal.
"We don't have anything at this point," he said. "Today was a pretty quiet day."
The reason I asked is foxsports.com reports that Seattle is close to signing Carlos Silva. Seattle was considered one of the front-runners to land Erik Bedard.
"When somebody signs a free agent, it possibly takes them out of trying to trade for other players," Krivsky said. "But a team may sign someone and still try to trade."
In other words, Seattle may still be interested in Bedard. If the Mariners aren't and with the Dodgers out of the field, the Reds' chances would be considerably better.
