Odds & Ends: Glaus, Torre, Padres, Strasburg

On this date in 1998, the Mariners traded Joey Cora to the Indians for David Bell. More than a decade later, Cora is still making headlines in Cleveland – sort of. The White Sox coach translated for Manny Ramirez at this afternoon’s Progressive Field press conference. Here are some more links as we await another round of trades…

  • The Braves are listening to offers for Troy Glaus, according to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (on Twitter). On Sunday we heard that multiple AL teams have some interest in Glaus.
  • The A's re-signed Tommy Everidge, who played for Oakland last year, but hasn't appeared in the majors since, according to the Pacific Coast League's transactions page.
  • Dodgers manager Joe Torre told Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times that he expects to be able to work out a deal with the Dodgers this offseason if he decides to manage in 2011 (Twitter link).
  • The Padres are still interested in adding a starting pitcher, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). MLBTR's Tim Dierkes provided a list of potentially available starters earlier today. Jon Heyman of SI.com says the Padres claimed a number of pitchers, but weren't able to work out any deals (Twitter link).
  • Nationals GM Mike Rizzo told Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post that Stephen Strasburg will undergo Tommy John surgery this Friday.
  • MLBPA leader Michael Weiner told Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork that the hearing between Francisco Rodriguez and the Mets will take place in mid-October (Twitter link).

he speaks english fine. this must be a joke or a reference to guillen’s statements about not having spanish interpreters and having to rely on teammates.

Manny can’t speak english? No problem. I’ll put in a subscription to the book “Ozzie Guillen’s guide to speaking in the clohouse” for Man-Ram.

Unless some team really overvalues Glaus, I say don’t trade him. The Braves are trying to win… Frank Wren, stockpile those players! Glaus isn’t expendable. (That’s not to say he’s versatile by any means, but still).

Yeah I would think the Braves would want to hold on to Glaus if for no other reason than a bench off the bat and a possible DH if they make it to the WS. The roster exapnds to 40 tomorrow so it’s not like he’s blocking anyone.
