Patterson to OriolesMarinersRangersNatsThem
by Derek Smart
You know what I wrote on Friday? Well, scratch that. Okay, maybe not entirely. Corey should still be going elsewhere soon, but according to the Baltimore Sun Article cited above, the Orioles aren't the favorites anymore, with rumors saying the Rangers, Mariners, and Nationals are the other teams in the mix.
In other words, it looks as if Jim Hendry might have actually gotten a bidding war started for Patterson's services. I have no idea how such a thing could happen in a world where sentient beings rule, but you won't see me complaining, even if it means negotiating with twelve-foot tall ants bent on world destruction. They have no concept of relative market value anyway.
