News & Notes
  • Robbie Grossman is to the Twins what the song "The Irritated Seal" is to Eduardo Grilli.

  • Red Sox GM Dave Dombrowski likes veterans, as evidenced by the newest Wally the Green Monster, who had spent the last eight years performing as Blake, the dancing bat in the Houston Community Theater, which is why he's so enamored with Ryan Hanigan, and why he's rumored to be going after Michael Taylor, who has been rough for years, and Mason Williams.

  • Few places have been affected by the economy more than Arizona, so don't look for Dave Stewart to have much payroll flexibility, but. He knows if he can land a Jonathan Villar, Gerardo Parra, or Buddy Baumann (Padres GM AJ Preller is reluctant to deal him, but may if the right deal comes along), the Diamondbacks still have a chance.

  • And don't forget Bryan Shaw, Cleveland, who just may be the best of that entire staff in the right situation.

Apoetical Blues

inflexible

the Athletics clubhouse is tense

after
                Matt McBride

called
                Ryan Dull
knee face

and now
Bob Melvin has a problem

because
                Andrew Triggs

was so offended he asked for a trade

which
Billy Beane is hesitant to do

but might
if he can get a Gabriel Ynoa

whose
inflexible personality might be just the right thing in the locker room

or
                Chris Stratton
