Honestly?

Padres: 0 rings

Maybe that's his motivation. :-D

Didn't see these up there:

AP wrote:Oakland, Calif. — The Oakland Athletics declined their contract options for next season on outfielder Jermaine Dye and left-hander Chris Hammond on Friday.


Also:

AJC wrote:Wright, Russ Ortiz and Paul Byrd accounted for 38 of 68 wins by Atlanta starters, but Byrd and Ortiz were paid a total of $13.2 million. Byrd would have to take a reduction from his $7 million salary to be brought back, and Ortiz isn't likely to be re-signed.


A little stale, but still didn't see it up there.

Chris Woodward refused to accept an assignment to AAA and has thus become a free agent.

Looks like Matt Clement will be a FA.

STARTING ROTATION: The Cubs figured Kerry Wood and Mark Prior would be their leaders, but the two had injury problems early in the season and combined to win only 14 games. Carlos Zambrano and Greg Maddux picked up some of the slack with 16 victories apiece. The Cubs will be looking for a No. 5 starter in 2005 because it appears they will not re-sign Matt Clement

I found another article that said that he was at the top of the Red Sox wish list for the off season. (of course - he is my #2 guy in my NL only keeper league - I hate you Sox!)

minor correction - cards hold an option on chris carpenter

ST. LOUIS -- Chris Carpenter, who hasn't pitched in the major leagues since 2001, agreed Monday to a one-year contract with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Cardinals general manager Walt Jocketty said Carpenter had been given a "clean bill of health for next season."

Carpenter, 28, last pitched for Toronto in 2001, when he went 4-5 with a 5.28 ERA. He missed the 2002 season after surgery for elbow tendinitis. He made eight rehab starts last season before an operation to remove scar tissue from his shoulder.

The Cardinals declined a $2 million option on Carpenter in October, instead giving him a $200,000 buyout.

His new deal calls for a 2004 salary of $300,000, the major league minimum, but his base pay would rise to $500,000 if he is added to the active roster. St. Louis has a $2 million option for 2005 with a $200,000 buyout.

Carpenter can earn an additional $500,000 next year: $50,000 for 10 starts, $100,000 for 20 starts, $150,000 for 30 starts and $200,000 for 34 starts. He can make an additional $2.55 million in 2005: $300,000 for 10 starts, $400,000 for 20 starts, $450,000 for 25 starts, $500,000 for 30 starts and $550,000 for 34 starts.
