Time for today's linkage.
- Geoff Baker tries to determine who "won" the Jose Vidro trade.
- Ken Davidoff doesn't expect anyone of value to clear waivers. We didn't have much August trade action last year either. Some decent names were dealt in August of '06 though - David Wells, Shawn Green, Jamie Moyer, Livan Hernandez, Ryan Franklin, Eric Hinske, and Scott Schoeweneis.
- The Mets can retain Carlos Delgado for '09 at essentially $8MM, since there's a hefty $4MM buyout on his $12MM option. Back in May Delgado's agent said it was a $16MM option. However, MetsBlog's Matthew Cerrone told me that is only the case with a top five MVP finish.
- Joel Sherman wonders whether Aaron Heilman will be a non-tender candidate this winter. Seems unlikely; he won't be that expensive.
- Mark Teixeira's three favorite places to play are New York, Seattle, and Anaheim, for what it's worth.
- Yahoo's Kevin Kaduk considers "Dr. James Andrews" the worst three words in baseball. He also lists some other three-word contenders.
- The Pirates will not "grossly exceed" the market to sign Pedro Alvarez. They seem to be hoping Scott Boras will come down to the $4-6MM net present value range on August 15th.
- The Nationals are thinking around $2.15MM for Aaron Crow.
- RotoAuthority discusses trading injured players in fantasy leagues.
