Rays reportedly discussing trade for Jayson Werth

If there was a silver lining to last night’s Yankees loss, it was that the Rays spent the night blowing a lead in Baltimore and losing to the lowly Orioles. In front of the First Lady, no less.

So the Yankees division lead stayed the same, but he most significant news of the night might have come a little before midnight when Buster Olney reported that the Rays were talking about a trade to acquire right fielder Jayson Werth from the Phillies. The deal could be a blockbuster, because Ed Price is reporting that the Phillies are also talking to the Astros about adding Roy Oswalt.

With that, I’m on my way back to Yankee Stadium. It’s as if I never left.
