Time for today's linkage.
- RotoAuthority looks for some fantasy baseball sleepers at second base.
- Rocco Baldelli has a rare muscle condition that does not allow his body to recover after a short workout. He'll hit the DL but won't retire. The Rays will likely decline his option but maybe they'll re-sign him at a lower price.
- The Indians are in the running for 16 year-old shortstop Edward Salcedo, but the Boras client remains unsigned.
- IGN has their own What Might've Been type series, and recently they took a look at the Mike Piazza trades of 1998. Haven't heard much on Piazza these last few weeks.
- The Angels seem likely to keep Juan Rivera, as he could be their left fielder in '09 and '10.
- I'm been devouring The Worst Team Money Could Buy, a book by Bob Klapisch and John Harper chronicling the '92 Mets. I am a bit too young to remember that team. It's a hilarious look at that trainwreck, with all sorts of off-the-record quotes. You really get a feel for what it's like following the Mets beat, too.
