Got this from Marc's blog this morning.

Josh Hancock made the Cardinals' bullpen yesterday.

Luke Hudson did the same with the Royals.

Juan Castro will be the Twins' Opening Day shortstop. Good for him -- he's one of the nicer guys around.

Danny Graves locked up his spot with the Indians earlier this week.

Ramon Ortiz will be in the Nationals' starting rotation, of course.

Chris Booker will start the year on the Phillies' disabled list.

D'Angelo Jimenez probably will make the Rangers' roster as a reserve. It boggles my mind that he was the Reds' starting second baseman AND leadoff hitter on Opening Day last year.

Randy Keisler, who gave up a couple bombs in the A's spring finale, probably won't make the roster.

The Senator, Allan Simpson, apparently will be part of a three-man closer setup with the Brewers' Nashville affiliate.

Corky Miller will start the season with Tacoma after missing the cut in Seattle.

Joe Valentine and Ben Weber were reassigned to the minor league side by the Astros and Blue Jays, respectively, while Luis Lopez was released by the Orioles.

That should work out well.

Not a bad gig for a .230 hitter.

I'm glad Hancock and Hudson found places to take them on. I always liked them though not always their pitching so much.

If you had to choose between Castro and "The player that remains nameless", or as TC called him "You know who", which would it be?

You'd have an infield of at least one all-star.

Er, at least I thought Neifi made the NL team last year.

I don't believe what I just saw.

They say expansion has led to a lot of guys who shouldn't be playing ;)
