IMO that throw from 3rd to 1st is about 15 feat too far for Walker.

As for Feliz--well, I'm a giants fan too--I like Feliz but I don't think he's a goos option as an everyday 1b (or any other position). If the Giants don't need the $ to wave in front of Vlad then they should raid the Twins again and get Mientke.
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

I had completely forgotten about the M's wanting to get rid of Garcia. I haven't been reading anything about him this off-season. I wonder if his name's gonna be thrown around at the winter meetings.

I'm sure it will be. If I remember right, he's got a fairly large contract that might be hard to move. :-?
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

He is a abitration elig and made 7 mill last season I believe ... KT has shown interest in signing him, but I done like his work ethic. He just seems lazy. IMO

Add Devil Rays 1B Aubrey Huff to the Dodgers' wish list. L.A. might be willing to offer either of its pitching phenoms, RHP Edwin Jackson or LHP Greg Miller, but the Rays could be reluctant to part with Huff, who is three years from becoming a free agent. . . .

The Braves tried to sell the Orioles on a Javy Lopez-for-Melvin Mora trade last spring, before Lopez turned into a 43-homer behemoth. Now Lopez is one of the Orioles' primary free-agent targets, and Mora could be their everyday third baseman. . . .

Why is Yankees owner George Steinbrenner hot to sign CF Kenny Lofton and make Bernie Williams a DH? One scout says the two are practically even in center, noting that Lofton sometimes takes poor angles. Lofton, though, would be a needed leadoff hitter. . . .

Free agent Rich Aurilia wants to remain a shortstop, but teams are gauging his willingness to play second or third base. The Red Sox will consider him at second if they fail to sign free agent Tony Graffanino, and the Indians and Dodgers have asked about him playing third. Aurilia also has options at short. . . . :-?

Free-agent 2B Fernando Vina made sense for the Cubs because of his lefthanded bat, but Mark Grudzielanek had a .366 on-base percentage last season, a mark that Vina has exceeded only once since 1998. Grudzielanek batted .359 in September. . . .

One G.M. laughs at the idea of the Mets trading OF Roger Cedeno to the Padres for OF Terrence Long. "Cedeno can't do anything," the G.M. says. "Long isn't a bad player; he's just overpaid." Cedeno is owed $10 million through 2005, Long $8.1 million. The Padres also wanted the Mets to take RHP Kevin Jarvis at $4.25 million. No go.

I thought Mr. Jackson was Mr. Untouchable. I would hope the Devil Rays wouldn't make the mistake of getting rid of Huff.

The Dodgers should just swallow their pride and trade Beltre already.

I can't see Huff coming to LA. But stranger things have happened ... and you are right, I thought Edwin was 'untouchable' ?? :-?

I wonder where Beltre is going to end up ... ? After three years of .. 'This is the year' ..if he gets out of Chavez ... it may finally be the year ...

All I know is I've thought about the whole "who's Beltre finally going to be traded to?" for too many years now. Frankly, it gives me a headache.
