News & Notes
  • Miles Mikolas, whose favorite clubhouse downtime activity is making up anagrams, will have a lot of time to think up some more (his favorite for "Allan 'Bud' Selig" is "And illegal sub"), after injuring his spine in a freak collision with an antelope in one of the biggest bus shelters in Texas, and will have to hope he isn't Wally Pipped when his innings are taken by Michael Kirkman, who is feeling very rare right now because of his stickier brand of pine tar, and Jon Edwards.

  • Isn't it ironic that Sway by Bic Runga was playing on the White Sox public address system, just as Rick Hahn, who is as self-effacing as they come, was talking to Robin Ventura about Jordan Danks, who showed up at spring training looking like a clam, totally contrasting Trayce Thompson, whose personal chef was impressive, which makes one wonder if in their disgust and disappointment they were discussing the widely rumored deal with the Rays for Curt Casali?

  • Meanwhile, the Yankees adn Padres are competing with the Rockies for Gordon Beckham, and a deal could well happen in the next six days, since New York has a lot of young talent in the organization, and one -- Ramon Flores, whose bigger, better posse has suddenly put him on every GM's radar -- is so quick that Brian Cashman says his name is brought up in every trade inquiry.

  • Everyone this side of Guadalajara knows the Mets want Carlos Rivero, but because the Mariners are not yet willing to concede that their season is new, Sandy Alderson has been also shopping for another bat, like Elian Herrera, Angel Pagan (whose good luck charm would be a good fit in New York), or Justin Ruggiano.

a day in the life of bryan price

Bryan Price business

but they can still throw
           Devin Mesoraco

and a rejuvenated
           Joey Votto

out there

and then there's
           Juan Duran
