1B: Morneau
2B: Rivas
SS: Bartlett
3B: Cuddyer

The only good thing about that is that they could now maybe still trade Jones and sign someone.  Their lack of power is pathetic.  As I've said already, I liked Koskie, he was always hurt though and never really did anything in the 3 postseasons.  He plays a mean third base though and he should have won a Gold Glove by now over Chavez

Pedro Martinez is officially a New York Met.

Thank God he's not a Yankee.

I knew Pedro wasn't going back to Boston and couldn't hammer that point home enough to all the Bo Sox fans on Spawn.com, but it isn't official yet.

Just saw on ESPN's Bottom Line that the White Sox have traded Carlos Lee to the Brewers for Scott Podsednik, Luis Vizcaino and a player to be named and Mike Matheny signed a 3-year deal w/ the Giants.

Which means A.J. Pierzynski is probably going to be traded since you don't need two AS caliber Catchers.  I don't think they would have signed Matheny unless they already had a deal in the works for AJ.

I wonder where he'll end up?   :-\

LA Times said the Giants were shopping him before this deal was announced.  I had heard all season that he was a cancer in the clubhouse, so I'm not suprised.  I could see the Dodgers trying to make a push for him, but hell will probably freeze over first.

Angels sign Paul Byrd and trade Ramon Ortiz to the Reds for a minor leaguer.

Looks like Rentieria is going to accept the Red Sox offer

As much as I liked OC, I think Rentiera is a better all around player.  And the multi year signing means that their top prospect, Hanley Rameriz, could be huge trade bait for a high end pitcher to replace Petey.

Let us hope on that one.  Im really concerned now with starting pitching.  Looks like Wells will be our opening day pitcher ???  I am also disappointed that Manny's name is being mentioned again for trade.  He has to be one the best hitters of the last 20 years in my opinion.  Plus the fact that his name was associated with Cliff Floyd for a trade was disheartening.  Would be sweet if we could somehow aquire one of Oaklands big 3 pitchers.

Times said today that the Giants put AJ on waivers.  Now it would be easy for the Dodgers to grab him.

Adrian Beltre and Richie Sexson are both Mariners.  Add that to Ichiro and Bret Boone and suddenly the Mariners are back in the playoffs next year.  What a scary lineup that's gonna be.

Yeah that is pretty good line up but who do they have throwing?  All they need to do is look at Texas and see that hitting means nothing

Good point Scott, I think that Jamie Moyer and Joel Piniero are their best 2 pitchers.  That ain't gonna cut it, even if they have a closer like Eddie Guardado.  I think the M's let Freddy Garcia go to the ChiSox last season, that was a mistake.  He was the victim of low run support.

And what the HELL are the Dodgers doing not signing Adrian Beltre?  He's young and getting better, and if not for Barry Bonds, was the NL MVP this season.


M's got a nice start here, but need a pitcher or two.

Let me tell you, now that I think about it, the Dodgers also let Steve Finley walk to the Angels.  So now they've recently lost Finley, Beltre, Lo Duca, and Mota, and basically all they've gained is Brad Penny, if he even ever recovers from that bicep/elbow injury he suffered right after the trade.

Dodgers: No pitching, no offense, and are basically comprised of a regressing Shawn Green and an overrated Milton Bradley.  Oh there is no joy in Los Angeles.
