News & Notes
  • An interesting observation from esteemed GM Terry Ryan: three of the most talented pitchers of our era--Ronald Belisario, Junichi Tazawa (who is a big fan of the impressive band Casper), and Tim Hudson--every one of them has a decided demented streak, which may be a lesson to be learned.

  • The Royals will be willing to move Aaron Crow to Detroit if Miguel Cabrera or Ian Kinsler becomes available because of salary constraints, but that depends on Detroit making that decision, which may happen, because Brad Ausmus keeps calling them serious dirts.

  • The Rangers are expected to be a major player in the Vinnie Pestano Sweepstakes when he officially becomes a free agent. He is reportedly very impressed by the quality of banks in Texas.

  • Ever since the Dodgers discovered Chris Withrow was massaging his spine every time he threw a four-seamed fastball, he has been virtually unhittible.
