So JP was bluffing all along about keeping Josh Towers....I figured as much. After it all, I am a bit sad to see him go. He had the great season for the Jays in '05, and he's really quite a decent #5 starter (just not enough to warrant what we'd have to pay him with our current depth there). In the NL, if he signs there, I bet he'll have some success.

I see an eventual Matt Clement signing for the Jays in the near future.

JP bluffing? What else is new? :-o

Towers posted a 6.50ERA last two years, I don't see how the Jays even thought about paying him $5.2M for another year. Otsuka, who has been pretty awesome, was non-tendered by the Rangers who didn't want to risk $4M on him.

There are some interesting names on that list. And when did the Padres become the new Cubs? I think each one of the names on the list have been linked to the Padres. :*)

Pirates were discussing a trade with the Tigers for Durbin, so I wouldn't be shocked if they picked up him. I would like to see them go after Wise too.

Boy it's exciting being a Pirates fan.

I'm also surprised to see Otsuka on that list. He would be a nice setup man or closer and I would figure would have trade value.

I'm with you. Mets could really use Otsuka in the pen and they can afford to take a chance on Prior.

BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox did not tender a contract to reliever Brendan Donnelly on Wednesday, hours before he was named Thursday in the Mitchell report about the illegal use of performance-enhancing substances in baseball.

The move, which makes him a free agent, was announced in an e-mail sent at 12:03 a.m. EST Thursday. The Mitchell report was released at 2 p.m.

"The club had no idea about names prior to release of this report," Red Sox spokesman John Blake said. "We didn't get anything until Mitchell released it at 2 o'clock. So there's no way that anybody had any inkling that Donnelly would be mentioned in that report."

:-b The Red Sox are trying to cover themselves, already. I am sure ACS is already reading way too much into the decision to let Donnelly go.

Otsuka is a surprise to me. I'd love to see the Yanks take a chance on him and/or Prior. Both have great upside and the downside is only money (and not a ton of it either)
