    Latest Hot Stove transactions

    Yankees decline the options of Kerry Wood (SU-RP), Nick Johnson (1B-DH), and Lance Berkman (1B-DH)
    Twins pick up Jason Kubel's (LF-RF-DH)option, let Nick Punto (2B-SS-3B) go
    Phillies don't pick up JC Romero's (LOOGY) option
    Jays pick up Jose Molina's (C) option
    Greg Dobbs (3B) leaves Phils and becomes FA
    Chris Gimenez (C) and Anthony Reyes (RHP) leave Indians and become FA

    I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou

    Based on what I saw with the Yanks, he could barely play first base and he looks awful batting right handed. Don't know if he was injured, but he looked like a shell of his former self.

    Similar offensive production over the past 2 years. Stick LB in left and they may be twins, minus the salary.

    Seriously? $2M a year for a manager? Especially an Eric Wedge. That's it, I'm applying for a job as major league manager. Anyone know where to get an application?

    Pretty sure I remember reading about Berkman needing some offseason scoping or cleanup on his balky knee. If he comes back healthy, I could see him having a good rebound year.

    Anyone got a clue on when we'll hear something about Harang? Sorry, but I like the big guy.

    I like the guy, too, but although nothing's official, you can pretty much guarantee he won't be back next year.

    I know, I'd just like to know where he goes. I wish him the best.
