Some random links tonight…
- If I was this kid, I would consider this awesome. Even if at the expense of my favorite team. I would just appreciate the novelty of it.
- Matt Stairs wants to play for another year or two, but he and the Jays will table extension talks until after the season.
- According to Nate Silver of Baseball Prospectus, even A-Rod can’t justify a $30MM salary.
- Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post expects the Rockies to shop Brian Fuentes hard this winter, with the Red Sox and Phillies as possible suitors. The Phils also have some interest in Garrett Atkins, apparently. They don’t seem to have many trading chips though.
- If the Pirates go with a $50MM payroll in ’08, they may only have $4MM free to work with this winter.
