The chance that Hanley Ramirez gets traded seems higher by the day. He informed team officials that he does not want to play third base. It makes one appreciate A-Rod just a little more.
- The Marlins also seem to be the front-runners for 1B Albert Pujols.
- Hiroki Kuroda is willing to pitch on the East Coast, and the Yankees do employ his former catcher, Russell Martin. Other than that, very little's going on in Yankee-land.
- Updates: The Pirates inked Nate McClouth to a one-year deal. The Mets acquired four players: Andres Torres, Frank Francisco, Jon Rauch and Ramon Ramirez. That's a whole lot mediocrity right there.
