    Bay supposedly still talking to other teams. No indication they are talking back however.

    And including Mike in this too - OK, kids, the Magical Mystery Tour was a bit more than 40 years ago. Their first album came out roughly 50 years ago (next year). Let's not rush these things.

    Untrue mystery team in on Victorino
    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2012/1...victorino.html

    The Indians and Red Sox remain in the mix, along with a third club. That third suitor isn't a true "mystery team," says Heyman -- it's just unknown to him.

    Why does this make me laugh:

    #Athletics "kicking the tires" on every shortstop out there but not close on anyone, source says

    I'm really looking forward to the World Series between the Mystery Team and the Magical Team - should go at least 9 games!
