Trade Deadline Playlist

Sorry for the lack of content today. We're too busy hitting refresh on, Baseball Prospectus, Rotoworld and Jon Heyman's Trade Report Blog to read the latest on that Jason Bay/Manny Ramirez mega-deal. But we did have time to cook up up a quick MLB Trade Deadline playlist. Enjoy.

"Should I Stay Or Should I Go" - The Clash

"When the Deal Goes Down" - Bob Dylan

"Help!" - The Beatles

"A New Career in a New Town" - David Bowie (Yes, it's an instrumental, who cares?)

"Tentative Decisions" - Talking Heads

"Everything Must Go" - Manic Street Preachers

"Leaving" - Josh Ritter

"Rumors in Town" - The Exploding Hearts

"Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)" - Motley Crue (this one's for Brian Sabean)

"On the Road Again" - Willie Nelson (dedicated to Bobo Newsom)

UPDATE, 3:15 p.m..: See, I wasn't kidding:

Kevin Goldstein (12:14:44 PM PT): David (D.C.): Please tell me the Pirates are getting more than Brignac and Niemann for Bay.

This question came in two minutes after an email that basically said, "Please tell me the Rays wouldn't give up Niemann and Brignac for Bay"

Just sayin. . .

I don't think Tampa is done talking to anyone, and I think they might be close on Bay actually. The Rays were always Plan B on that.

(Yep, that's me. Don't tell my boss, OK? Thanks.)
