Heyman On Pudge, Pedro, Catalanotto

SI.com’s Jon Heyman has a new column up; let’s take a look.

  • Heyman says Oakland’s "win now" mandate this winter came from owner Lewis Wolff.
  • The Astros and Marlins are interested in Ivan Rodriguez, "no matter what they say publicly."
  • Heyman says Pedro Martinez is "talking up a Dodgers reunion."  So far, there’s been no indication the Dodgers are entertaining it.
  • Edgar Renteria‘s agent was initially asking for a three or four-year deal.
  • It’s no surprise that Frank Catalanotto is available, but the $6MM owed to him is an obvious impediment.
  • According to Heyman, Andruw Jones told Rangers brass he’s flexible on the March 20th decision date in his contract.
  • Heyman describes the Josh Hamilton extension talks as "just getting going" and believe the John Lackey discussions have only been preliminary.
