T-MINUS THIRTY MINUTES TO TRADE DEADLINE AND NORRIS IS STILL AN ASTRO
T-MINUS ONE HOUR TO TRADE DEADLINE AND NORRIS IS STILL AN ASTRO
1:46 - Orioles working hard on landing Norris...or Saunders. (Jim Bowden)
1:21 - "Finally, some movement on Norris" Implies lack of movement before. Pirates, Orioles and Dbacks in touch and talks have accelerated. (Ken Rosenthal)
(Okay - I can't keep up. From here on out, I will just update with solid rumors of negotiations. We all know who is in on this)
11:19 - Norris continues to get a lot of interest from Giants, Pirates, with teams like D'Backs, Rangers talking.(Peter Gammons)

Pirates take him and give us 3 prospects with one being top 100

Absolutely nothing will happen. But, if he is traded to the O's and starts tonight, he will record a career high for strikeouts.

3 team trade with D backs,Pirates and Orioles. D backs trade Ian Kennedy to Pirates and take Bud Norris. We get a top 100 prospect from D backs.

He's trade bait next year.

I like both comments above!

I'm not sure if he gets traded. It depends on how crazy front offices get and decide they must get someone.

If it's not a top prospect in return it's not worth it.

I say trade JD Martinez and Norris to the O's for Bundy and some other lower prospect.

If we trade with the Pirates go after as much of their talent that we can get. They have an awesome minor league system.

Who knows if a mystery team steps in at the last moment. His salary is so low for a bigger team and the control is something that might appeal to a team that has a 3 year window of winning.

I don't think deal gets made. Bud is a number three or four on most teams. That isn't going to get a ton in return. He's having a decent season, but nothing extraordinary. His biggest selling point is the low salary and team control. He may be bait next year or who knows, maybe he will be around when the resurgence starts.
