    Latest Hot Stove rumors

    Might as well keep them separate

    D-backs are after Paul Konerko (1B- CWS)

    If the D-Backs grab Konerko, Chicago would make a great trading partner.

    An Alonso and Maloney for Carlos Quentin deal would be ideal for both parties (though that may be overpaying).

    Re: Latest Hot Stove rumors

    Hmm... with the ChiSox after Rasmus... and the D-backs after Konerko from the Sox... put 2 and 2 and 2 together... do I see some sort of blockbuster with Pujols going to the other league? Is there any hope of this happening?

    Tigers are "deeply interested" in Crawford, says Rosenthal.

    Carlos Quentin would make Gomes look like a gold glove LF.

    If Dan Wakamatsu (M- um... FA?...out of a job?) doesn't find a managing job in the next few days, he'll likely be Orioles bench coach, reports Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun

    Although I expect them to offer lesser contracts to Cabrera and Gomes.

    Mike Illitch would overpay everyone to get Crawford.

    That might mean that Hot-N-Ready's will escalate to $6 per pizza.
