Players on the move

Since my last post, I have added about 10 pounds of turkey,mashed potatoes and cranberry sause to my body. Thanksgiving is the only time of year that im able to do that haha. Since that last post, many players have agreed to deals and off-season speculation continues..

  • Center Fielder Torii Hunter has agreed to a 5-year $90 million deal with The Los Angeles Angels. Who saw that coming?
  • Closer Fransisco Cordero has since agreed to a 4-year deal with The Cincinati Reds. Expect them to be a dark horse canidate in the National League in 08.
  • The Daily News reports that The Mets have Interest in Freddy Garcia. The Injured Starting Pitcher was 1-5 with a 5.90 ERA last year with The Phillies. The only deal i can see being made here, is a incentive laden deal. I think we should also offer Bartolo Colon something incentive laden.
  • Twins Starting Pitcher Johan Santana has been talked about heavily over the past few days. Omar has been pushing hard for an ace and it looks like he's working on getting it before Dec 25 so that he can put it under Mets fans christmas trees.=D
  • After acquiring OF Torii Hunter, The Twins don't seem to be done christmas shopping. Miguel Cabrera and Miguel Tejeda are high on their wish lists. suggests that The Angels are willing to give up Reggie Willits, Howie Kendrick, and a catcher, but The Marlins are insisting on the inclusion of top pitching prospect Nick Adenhart.
