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.

Time to get ‘er done!”

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 […]
