Pirates and Red Sox two of the teams sniffing on Padres reliever Luke Gregerson.— Nick Cafardo (@nickcafardo) July 31, 2013
Other trade-related descriptions and verbs coming into vogue:
"Yankees are twiddling around Bud Norris."
"Teams are flashing Ruben Amaro, showing off their prospects, but Amaro is horrified by what he's seeing."
"One team said that they're 'interested in Alex Rios, but just for a taste. Like, a real quick lick.'"
"The Dodgers have marked the Twins with their scent, keeping other teams away, and making the Twins reluctant to deal with anyone else."
"The Indians are blowing in the Giants' ear like Maid Marian in the '90s Robin Hood, trying to distract them as they release a trade arrow."
"Pirates and Red Sox are sniffing around Padres reliever Luke Gregerson."
Whoops! That last one is real. Sorry for the confusion.
(Spoiler: Luke Gregerson smells like sliders.)
