"I can do everything!"
"I can do everything!"

Bill Hall, who has played every position in the big leagues outside of catcher, has a Spring Training invite and minor league deal with the Yankees. If he makes the ML team, he'll get $600K with incentives to follow based on PA.

  • The Orioles traded RHP Jeremy Guthrie to the Rockies for RHPs Jason Hammel and Matt Lindstrom. Guthrie was once a highly-touted prospect, having been selected 22nd overall by the Indians in 2002.
  • Speaking of the O's, the Korean Baseball Organization protested Baltimore's signing of Korean teenage pitcher, Kim Seong-min.
  • Madonna will play Yankee Stadium on Sept. 6th. There's an A-Rod joke in there somewhere.
  • Hong-Chih Kuo, the hard-throwing LHP with injury problems, signed with the Mariners for $500K with potentially a bunch more in incentives.
  • Ken Rosenthal says Brian Cashman's scandal should have no bearing on his job.
  • THT examined the correlation between payroll and wins.
  • A class-action lawsuit has been brought against Royals legend George Brett for advertising jewelry that supposedly "improved health and sports performance."
