Too early to tell, but if the Rockies have Denny Neagle's contract magically disappear from their books as the result of one, er, traffic stop, then they won't go down as losers...

After further consideration, I probably should have phrased that differently. Never mind. :-X

I believe I read that the Rockies are on the hook for Neagle's salary even though they released him. If that's the case, they unfortunately will still have that on their book this year :~(

I think it will be the Braves. There is talk of Hudson coming over and Possibly Kevin Brown. Also, now that Millwood has cut ties with Philly maybe he's ready to come back to Atlanta at a discount.

It'll be really interesting!

Well, there's talk that Colorado will try to argue that Neagle violated the morals clause in his contract, although the Players Association would be sure to fight that claim (once again).

Too early to tell for certain, but I agree that chances are the Rockies will still be paying when all is said and done.
