- Former MLBPA head Donald Fehr talked to Daniel Barbarisi of The Providence Journal. Amongst other things, Fehr says that with the current agreement expiring in 2011, he hopes the owners remember the brutal work stoppage of 1994.
- Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times (via Twitter) says that we can expect to find out what Rays player will be shipped to the Indians as part of the Kelly Shoppach deal. The Cleveland press release announcing the trade a few weeks ago had said that the "player to be named later" would be revealed today, December 20th.
- While some Yankees fans have talked about the possibility of trading Nick Swisher, Chad Jennings of The Journal News defends the eccentric outfielder, citing his 29 HRs and .371 OBP. Dealing Swisher probably made sense when the club still might have re-signed Johnny Damon. At this point, unless the Yanks plan on signing Matt Holliday, can anyone think of a good reason why they should move Swisher?
