As much as I'd like to, don't forget Dusty Baker being hired as the Reds' manager.

The Brewers also declined Geoff Jenkins' $9 million option, making him eligible for free agency.

You could, but in the past Leftovers have had this type of thread and it was stickied. All websites have something similar to what ESPN has so I dont think its that big of a deal. ;-D

As long as you're including all moves that teams have made, I suppose you should probably include the Tigers' picking up Pudge's option, eh?

I believe this Stairs signing indicates that Reed Johnson won't be coming back to the Jays next year.

The Red Sox exercised team options on Tim Wakefield for $4 million and Julian Tavarez for $3.85 million.

In an unworthy of adding note, they also received a 25 yr old from AA, Sean Danielson, to complete the Joel Piniero trade. Feel free to leave that one out. :-b
