Couldn't find one, so I figured I'll start my own.

Couple notes I heard on the radio today:

Mike Cameron will be suspended 25 games for violating the MLB drug policy for a banned stimulant.

Joe Torre has been offered a deal around $14.5 for 3 years.

White Sox declined options on Mike Myers and Darin Erstad (hurray, Kenny did something right).

St. Louis promoted Mozeliak, meaining Chris Antonetti stays in Cleveland. As a Tribe fan, this is fantastic...Shapiro+Antonetti is the new Beane+DePo.

Kosuke Fukudome. He's an outfielder that I keep hearing the Mets are going to sign.

?? They're supposed to re-sign Alou, let Green walk, play Milledge. They really don't need Fukudome, with Gomez and the other OF prospect I'm too lazy to look up in the pipeline.

EDIT: Alou kept for 7.5 mil, Dunn kept for $13.5

You are under the assumption that Milledge and Gomez are kept and the assumption is that one if not both might be traded. If thats the case it would be pretty hard to play them if they were traded.

Except it's way more likely Milledge is kept than they sign Fukudome.

They're much more likely to spend any available money they have on pitching, esp since they just lost Glavine. Beltran: signed long-term. Alou: $7.5 mil for next year. Milledge + Gomez are cheap OF options for the next five years, and Fernando Martinez is another high-upside OF they have in the minors. Fukudome makes zero sense.

Minaya has said a million times, quite vehemently, that Gomez is going nowhere. He loves him.
