Two new ones cropping up online, one totally off-base, the other something of a long shot - and both involving, ironically, the Seattle Mariners and Chicago Cubs.
The first is one that would probably thrill fans of both teams: Carlos Silva for Milton Bradley, straight up. Bad contract for bad contract. It makes sense only in that both teams would go a long way to move these two players.
But not this far.
Mariners execs rolled their eyes. Cubs officials simply said 'no chance.' So that's that.
The other deal involves free agent Mike Cameron, the center fielder who followed Ken Griffey Jr. into Safeco Field - they were traded for one another - and became a fan favorite.
The Cubs want him, but must move Bradley's two-year, $21.5 million contract first. Cameron loves manager Lou Piniella. Cameron also loves Seattle, Safeco Field and the fans there.
And the Mariners have interest, though just how strong remains to be seen. It might be that Cameron is a fallback position, a Plan B or Plan C on the depth chart.
Still, hard not to picture the smiles of Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Cameron on one one team. And what an outfield this would be: Cameron in left, Franklin Gutierrez in center, Ichiro in right.
