Links for Wednesday...
- ESPN's Jayson Stark reminds us that Manny Ramirez could've been traded to the Phillies in July. But the Phils wouldn't offer Lou Marson, didn't like the idea of Manny in right field, and were concerned about Ramirez's hustle.
- Matthew Cerrone of MetsBlog gives his early sense of the team's offseason approach. He doesn't seem them splurging on one of the big free agent names.
- MLB.com's Marty Noble heard Orlando Hudson "yearns to play for the Mets" (hat tip to MetsBlog).
- Jamey Newberg believes in the Rangers' plan.
- Joel Sherman of the New York Post doesn't believe Robinson Cano will be traded, because the Yankees are valuing him as if 2008 did not occur. He names Fausto Carmona as an example of a pitcher the Yanks would not accept for Cano.
- Sherman also notes that Bobby Abreu and the ivy-covered brick wall at Wrigley might not be the best match.
- The Mariners will interview five people for their GM vacancy this week: Peter Woodfork (D'Backs), Jerry DiPoto (D'Backs), Tony Bernazard (Mets), Kim Ng (Dodgers), and Tony LaCava (Blue Jays).
- The Angels signed Korean pitcher Jang Pil-Joong, who just finished serving in the army.
- I did a couple of interviews recently: over the phone with MLB Interviews and over email with Pinstripes Published.
