    Up at the Enquirer now:

    The unfortunate picture they have of O'Brien on the front page makes him look very like the Cheshire cat.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Seems funny to appoint someone to new powers and then fire him on the next business day.
    WV: I thought the same thing...wondering if there was a deal for a Dunn or Junior on the table that Dano wouldn't pull the trigger on...maybe it was on Rich or Womack?

    This has to be the best news of the off-season. I can't believe how inept O'Brien was, is, and always will be.

    The rumor is that DanO will be invited to Spring Training to compete for the second base job. It seems many left in the organization think he may actually be a better fit at 2b than either Aurilia or Womack.

    Actually, I'm thrilled. My guess is his inability to get any pitching over the offseason (or last trading deadline) was his undoing.
