FWIW, Stephen Drew listed his house for sale at the end of May.

Where is his house? Kind of a shitty time to be selling a house, isn't it?

The house is in South Tempe. The price has already been cut by $85,000 since it went on the market. It's only a 4000 square foot house, so perhaps he and the missus thought it was too small after they had the kid.

Drew can always do what Jamie Moyer does in Seattle--rent his house out to players that get traded to the Mariners. Cliff Lee had it last, not sure who is next on the list.

I know the Drews don't live here year round, and it is possible they decided simply to leave the family in Georgia during the season, therefore no longer needing the house, but it does make you wonder if Drew is anticipating that he may be traded.

A couple of notes from this yahoo story.

The telephone Josh Byrnes used to answer at Chase Field has a recording that deflects the caller to another in-house number, “for any general manager-type calls,” which, it turns out, is the wrong number, too.

Figures. Rolling Eyes

The Diamondbacks once believed they had a possible fit with the Dodgers and Haren, but that was during the Byrnes era and those talks had to be restarted.

Bob McManaman / The Arizona Republic tonight wrote:
Interim General Manager Jerry Dipoto said before Monday's game against the visiting New York Mets that he has fielded multiple phone calls from clubs interested in acquiring some of Arizona's players.

He declined to get into specifics but reiterated that the Diamondbacks will be trading partners only under the right scenarios. And he suggested that the team wants to add to the core players on the roster, not necessarily subtract from it for help in the future.

If Arizona makes any moves, it likely would be to acquire pitching depth for the rotation and bullpen.

"Obviously, we have players who have a good deal of market value, and we understand what that value is," Dipoto said. "We also understand what their value is to this team, and in as many instances as we can, we want to move forward with the same guys that we believe in.

"We believe this group has a tremendous amount of talent. We've understood that for years. Now we need to put the other pieces in place that will help them get over the top."

Right-hander Dan Haren is drawing serious interest from a handful of clubs, and the Yankees are believed to have entered trade talks for him now that Andy Pettitte is out four to five weeks because of a groin injury.

I can't see the Yankees being a fit. Unless they plan to offer up Phil Hughes, I don't see how according to the "satisfactory package" they team can get what they want in return. Jesus Montero is a really nice prospect, but I'm sure they are content with the Montero they already have.

Granted the trade deadline could dramatically affect the dynamic of the team but I can't help but feel that there are two current roster players who could benefit from more AAA seasoning: Rusty Ryal and Cole Gillespie.

So far both have managed to keep their heads above water batting average-wise in the majors, but they strike out at an alarming rate. Neither provides the kind of thunder off the bench we need in late innings. They were not heavily touted commodities rising through the minors and no doubt profile as the kind of role players they are now asked to be.

My concern with both players is that they don't have a lot of AAA time and didn't really dominate when there. Both only have about a year of AAA and could benefit from showing that they have mastered that level. Why not send them both down with a specific mission: cut down on your strikeouts and learn to work counts. Give them a month with a hundred or so at bats they won't get at the major league level to work on this mission. They can always be called back up when rosters expand. Next spring they can be reevaluated again for roster spots. Maybe they become the kind of guys who can move back and forth from the minors to the majors and provide depth depending on their options.

This isn't meant to be a knock on either Ryal or Gillespie, but simply to say that they've been asked to do something that neither player yet has the seasoning for.
