Not much really going on in baseball right now as most teams appear to be done spending including the Yankees... lets take a look at the rumor mill anyway
Ben why do all the teams think my arm is going to fall off Sheets is still looking for a 2 year deal which I doubt he gets. I'm going to hazard a guess that something in his medical report has scared the hell out of every major league team.
Jason Varitek may sign for around 5 million dollars on a one year deal. Man I wish I could get paid millions of dollars to be bad. He can't really hit anymore and his defense is rapidly declining he was just a bit over league average this past year. But if they don't resign him there pitching staff may suddenly fall apart, seeing as how Jason is one of the best game callers ever whos skills can be matched by no one! And the Florida Marlins are going to try and sign Manny Ramirez.. Okay, back to reality.
Spekaing of Manny Ramirez, he is still trying to get the Dodgers to bid against themselves in their pursuit of him. Normally, I'd say not even Scott Boras could make this happen, but Ned Colleti is the GM who gave Andruw Jones 36 million dollars.
Oliver Perez is still looking for a 4 year 40 million dollar contract and it looks like the Mets are going to give him something close to that. Highest walk rate in the national league + ERA over 4 = roughly 10 million dollars a year apparently... quick someone tell Jon Garland. And the biggest news of the day the Pirates may have just made their biggest offseason signing in Eric Hinske... I feel for all the Pirates fans out there.
So ya baseball is pretty boring right now, but to help you get through the times here is a hilarious video
lets get physical!
