    Who didn't get arbitration and is available?

    A type A free agent, if signed, costs a you a high draft choice. Ok, I don't expect the Reds to sign any.

    Anyone know which remaining free agents were not offered arbitration by their teams and are still available? Starting pitchers? Righty relievers? Righty hitters? Centerfielders?

    What is the story with Troy Percival?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    He's done!!! He is actually thinking about taking on a scouting job for the Tigers I thought I had heard.

    Is Jeff Cirillo retiring? He'd be a nice bench asset, if he doesn't want too much.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    how about Steve Kline? Anyone know if Randa is playing next year? I could see him coming in to play 1st in a platoon.

    I know he isnt great but I think Darrin Erstad would be an interesting pick up. He atleast would bring some fire to the team.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    I think Randa announced his retirement after the season ended. That's not to say he couldn't change his mind.
