Weekend Odds and Ends

I'm feeling a little under the weather today, so this is just a quicky.

"It should be noted that the $4 million figure which we submitted is the highest arbitration award ever for a first-time arbitration-eligible starting pitcher. Therefore, this should not be viewed as `a loss' for Chien-Ming Wang. He is a valuable member of our team and we felt that we had reflected this in our filing number."
  • Hank is running his mouth. And maybe preparing to run Brian Cashman out of town:
"My concern is the same that it's always been: I'd like to have a great ace pitcher like everybody else would," Steinbrenner said. "I'd love to have a Santana or a (Josh) Beckett. Hopefully that's not a move we should have made that I'm going to be (ticked off) about.

"I think by the end of the season, we could have that in Chamberlain."

No pressure, big guy.
  • Keep a close on Scott Kazmir's performance this season. The 2007 AL strikeout champ could be up for grabs. h/t MBTR.
