  • Tampa Bay acquired Brendan Harris from Cincinnati for a player to be named later or cash or perhaps a played named "Cash."
  • The Red Sox added Joel Piñeiro and will audition him to be a closer.
  • Sidney Ponson continues to find work as the Twins signed him to a minor league deal.
  • Jamey Carroll, the David Eckstein of the Rockies, re-signed with Colorado for two years.
  • Hall of Famer Rollie Fingers owes the state of Wisconsin about $1.4 million in delinquent taxes. Fingers ran afoul of Wisconsin's little known "funny mustache" tax law, which was inserted into state law back in the 1920s when the Progressive Party managed to get it pushed through. Apparently Robert LaFollette hated moustaches.
  • The agent for Mark Loretta says that his client has signed a one-year contract with Houston.
  • Doug Mientkiewicz will likely sign with the Yankees. Alex and Cliff prepare a macro that allows them to insert "Mientkiewicz" in to any post of theirs on Bronx Banter.
  • The inductees into the Baseball Hall of Fame will be announced live on Monday Tuesday at 11 am PT. At 11:01 am PT, people can start complaining about how someone was left off unjustly. At 11:10 am PT, Rich Lederer will start sending off more e-mails to people who didn't vote for Bert Blyleven. At 11:30 am PT, Mark McGwire still won't say anything. At 11:31 am PT, Cal Ripken will have his name brought forward to the Vatican for sainthood, despite not being dead, which is a prerequisite for the job. At 11:32 am PT, Tony Gwynn will be looking for a sandwich. At 11:45 am PT, Steve Garvey will learn that he shouldn't have borrowed money on the premise of being a Hall of Famer.
  • The Mariners signed erstwhile super prospect Sean Burroughs.

isn't there another "e" in "mientkiewicz"? for some reason the spelling of that name always sticks in my mind, even though i have no use for it.

Every time I type Minky's name, it says "diapers".

Tuesday, not Monday, for the HOF announcement, I think. If it were Monday, that'd be Bruce Sutter's birthday, which would be pretty funny, though.

Shame the Yankees can't sign Grudzielanek instead of Mientkiewicz. Then they could have Godzilla and Grudzilla on the same team.
