Rosenthal's Latest: Thames, Konerko, Ellis, Atkins

Ken Rosenthal has a new column up; let's take a look.

  • Rosenthal dissects the outfield options for the Mets, many of the names we've been speculating.  He notes that the Mets' talks for Marcus Thames fizzled during the Winter Meetings.
  • He says Paul Konerko "remains quietly available," and expresses the opinion that the Mets or Yankees could both use him.  Rosenthal believes Chicago's biggest need is starting pitching.
  • Rosenthal speculates that six years at $18MM per might be the Rockies' limit for Matt Holliday.  Will the Scott Boras client demand full market value?  Also, Colorado doesn't seem to have any plans to lock up Garrett Atkins.
  • Signing Mark Ellis to an extension rather than trading him is a possibility for the A's.  Three or four years at $5MM per would be the going rate.
  • Though Dylan Hernandez wrote that the Dodgers "don't appear to be interested in Brandon Inge," Rosenthal says they're "indeed intrigued."
