The stove is heating up

- Jason Giambi's ($22 million) and Carl Pavano's ($13 million) options for 2009 have been declined. It's possible, depending on what other players are acquired, that they could be re-signed to cheaper deals.

- Discussions have begun with CC Sabathia's agent. My guess is 7 years, $150 million.

- The relationship between Scott Boras and Arod has (thank god!) been repaired. I was worried for a while there.

- Despite the ripping in the media Phil Hughes has taken while in Arizona (which is a hitter's league anyway), he has had a few stellar outings - namely his last one: 5 ip, 1 h, 0 r, 0 bb, 8 k.
