This comes to my box this morning from Mastrick

“Rumors swirl in Miami, Rotoworld reports that everybody except Dontrelle Willis and Cabrera are available for the right price. Time for Hendry to be proactive – Florida wants to cut their payroll to $40 million. A Juan Pierre and Josh Beckett trade for Angel Guzman, John Koronka, Corey Patterson and Bobby Brownlie trade would be in order here…if Florida balks at Patterson, substitute Dwayne Bacon, Jemal Spearman or Adam Greenberg. Time to get ‘er done!”

Here’s a Question

Filed under: General — Joe Aiello @ 6:11 am

So Hendry comes out and signs one of the best relievers in the game last year. Will he suck when he comes to Chicago? It seems like everytime we sign a MR or trade for one to help the pen, it never does. Here’s hoping Scott Eyre will be just what the doctor ordered for next year.

Apology & Shameless Plug

Filed under: General — Joe Aiello @ 6:21 am

Ok, so I didn’t log on after work tonight to talk about steroids. I will however be talking about that and the rest of the Cubs offseason things tonight on Sports Talk Cleveland. I will be on around 9:00pm Eastern if you would like to listen.

Finally

Filed under: General — Joe Aiello @ 6:27 am

Here is a link to a very important story. I’ll give you my thoughts on it when I get home from work this evening.

Also, just in case you were holding out hope for Hideki Matsui this next year in LF, it looks like the Yankees are going to resign him.

Paired in Fame, Joined in Shame

Filed under: General — Tommy Marker @ 10:01 am

A rather ominous sign that Sammy Sosa and Rafael Palmeiro are not long for the world of Major League Baseball: neither player can be accessed through the ìCurrentî player search engine for FOX Sports.

It seems that these diametrically different personalities are meeting a similar fate. This happened this weekend as the Baltimore Orioles cut loose the once-vaunted dynamic duo following abysmal seasons on and off the field.

Their lives and careers have taken a surprising number of parallel turns. Both played for the Cubs, Rangers and Orioles. Both grew up poor and Latin, Palmeiro from Cuba and Sosa from the Dominican Republic.

Each player amassed career statistics that are on any given day worthy of Cooperstown. But on March 17, the two sat at the same table facing down Congressional queries regarding steroids. Palmeiro was eloquent and passionate. Perhaps too much so. Sosa just looked like a blathering idiot, faking a sudden loss of coherence and articulation.

Once paired in glory, Sammy and Raffy are now conjoined in shame in a pathetic end to careers and reputations that could have and definitely should have finished better.
