Quick Hits: Indians, Mariners, Orioles

Another round of links after a memorable duel between Cy Young candidates Roy Halladay and Josh Johnson in Miami…

  • Indians manager Manny Acta told Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com that he doesn’t hold anything against the people who predicted that the Indians would finish at the bottom of the AL Central standings (Twitter link). "The people who picked against us are the same people who picked us to win in 2008,” he said. “It's understandable." 
  • In honor of Milton Bradley, Larry Stone of the Seattle Times looks at some noteworthy contracts the Mariners have had to swallow in the past.
  • The Orioles signed outfielder/first baseman Darryl Crosier to a minor league deal, according to Steve Gould of the Baltimore Sun. Director of player development Tripp Norton and scout Dean Albany watched Crosier play earlier in the month.

    As a Mets fan, I gotta hope Sandy is keeping his options open with Reyes. If they decide they are interested in bringing him back, but they do get a good trade offer, why not? It worked out well for the Phillies. They would collect the haul for the trade and only give up their 2nd round draft pick for re-signing him in the offseason (presupposing that they make other trades and finish in the bottom 15 of the league). Personally, I think they ought to be talking to him to find out about how much he’s looking at for signing, and if a hometown discount is a possibility, because upgrading the farm is a distinct possibility here if Alderson plays his cards right.
