Man, we can already smell that fresh-cut grass. Yummy.


  • In case you missed our update yesterday afternoon, the Rays DFA’d Juan Salas to make room for Brian Shouse…It seems like only yesterday when Salas, a converted infielder allowed only 2 earned runs and struck out 52 in 34.2 double-A innings. Then the following season Salas got caught injecting himself with idiot-enhancing drugs, and he was never the same. [Rays Report]
  • In the next week or so we will be updating our Trade Value Index (in the sidebar). In the meantime, we would be remiss if we don’t mention that Bill Simmons has released his annual NBA Trade Value Index, which was the inspiration for our TVI. [ESPN]
  • Former Phillies GM Pat Gillick was asked whether the WFC* tried to resign Pat Burrell. Gillick responded that the WFC* did talk to Burrell’s agent last season but that the two sides were very far apart and that Burrell was expecting too much money and too many years at the time. [The Fightins]
  • Troy Percival has already thrown off the mound a “couple of times” during his rehab. [MLB]
  • Joe Maddon has been “refining his philosophy” this off-season and already has his new catch-phrase to replace “9=8.” Maddon assures that this year’s motivational tool will not be as covert. [St. Pete Times]
  • Scott Kazmir makes the annual RotoAuthority list of spring training cliches. [RotoAuthority]
  • Rays of Light has updated their roster projection. [Rays of Light]
