Magglio - So far it seems that Mags has stated that he WILL NOT take a physical for a team during negotiations...hmmm...doesn't sound quite right. Also besides the injury dont forget about the blood issue - because of these problems only the Mets and Orioles have shown interest so far.

Sexson - He seems a little more open to testing but a shoulder injury is a maor concern for a guy who swings like him

Maggs is refusing to take a physical? Ha! I wanna go to Harvard... but I refuse to give them my transcript! Good luck getting a decent contract. This guy went from arguably a first rounder to an average power hitting OF within a couple years.

I did some looking around and he isn't taking a physical before December 3rd so the CWS don't offer arbitration... he had a second knee operation a couple months ago because he had two tears in his knee meniscus, not one like they originally thought. And he's still not 100% according to him. I imagine once the arbitration period ends he'll give his potential suitors their wish of giving him a physical. If not I can't imagine he gets more than a 2 year deal.

Sporting News was saying that taking a 1-year with the Royals is a possibility if he can't get a good multi-year. Yikes.

Maggs is not refusing to take a physical. He is doing an open physical for all interested teams at the start of the winter meetings, Dec 10.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

i have heard varying reports on maggs. some say he wont take a physical. some say he will only share medical files after serious negotiations have already taken place. some say he will stage a workout sometime in january to demonstrate the health of his knee.

i think big sexy will probably be fine. maggs should also be ok but i would really read up on how he is doing in ST before drafting him.

Don't know about Maggs, but Sexson is supposed to be ready. That said, I've read that, like Nevin, he'll always be more susceptible to his shoulder popping out. Makes him more of a risk, which is why I think there's the bone of contention between Sexson and the D-Backs - who allegedly want PT clauses rather than fully guaranteed contract.

BTW, not in the question, but the re-injury risk is also there for J.J. Hardy, for those who might be in deeper leagues.

Speaking from experience, I would stay away from Hardy completely. I have the same condition he does, although I've never dislocated my shoulder to the point that I tore my labrum. The docs say that I'm heading that way slowly but surely, though.

Anyways, I bring it up because I can confidently say that his shoulder problem is chronic. There is no getting over it, even with surgery. It has to do with a condition that causes the muscles on the back of his shoulder and under the shoulder blade to not develop properly. When you extend your arm (as in, a swing), your shoulder feels like there's nothing holding it together. Your bone feels like it's just floating around in there.

I play tennis, and in my particular case, it's destroyed my ability to serve effectively. I used to have a 100-mph serve. Now I'm lucky to get it into the upper-80's. In addition, I cannot generate any spin whatsoever without subluxing the bone again.

I had Hardy on a minor league roster in a deep league last year. I dropped him as soon as I found out about his condition. No hesitation. I wholly recommend giving him the black mark of death.

Of course, there is the matter of what is in my sig. I could be completely wrong. After all, he probably has access to much better doctors than me.
