A very nutritious Odds and Ends for lunch:
- Mariners fans are coming to grips with the lapse in judgment that was the Erik Bedard trade. Prospect Insider’s Jason A. Churchill takes a look at the possible market for Bedard.
- Ken Griffey Jr. told the New York Times that he doesn’t know where all those Tampa Bay Rays rumors are coming from. “I haven’t even thought about Tampa Bay or any other team. My focus is on what is going to happen tonight — not the what-ifs.”
- The Mets hired former Reds GM Wayne Krivsky as a special assistant to GM Omar Minaya. The news comes in the heels of escalating rumors that Minaya is on the hot seat.
