Having spent almost a full week away from the baseball blogosphere, I decided it was time to get to work, so I did a search for offseason activity involving our all favorite teams. Well ok, all the teams.
But for now, keeping up with what seems to be a viral lazyness factor here at umpbump (we split everything) I’ll start with the American League.
The Toronto Star lists Nomar as second pick for DH in the Jay’s wish-list this winter.
The D-Rays won’t turn a profit next year.
The fans in Minnesota want the Twins’ new ball park to keep the best thing from the Metrodome – the stainless steel urinals.
The first thing Joel Zumaya is going to do now that his Tigers lost the Series is… go to Disney World.
The White Sox already started shelling out cash, picking up options on Dye, Buehrle and Iguchi. Meanwhile, Sox short stop Uribe was rumored to be on the lam, but now seems to be cleared of a shooting incident in his native Domincan Republic.
The Indians just want to know their purpose in this life.
I don’t know what’s going on in KC (frankly, there were more news on other teams).
West coast teams don’t have much going on.
The A’s are looking for a new manager, so are the Rangers.
Randy Youngman of the OC Register wonders if Angels GM Bill Stoneman should get a World Series share; after all, he did trade “Jim Edmonds (2000) and Jeff Weaver (2006) to St. Louis, did not re-sign 2002 World Series hero Scott Spiezio after the 2003 season, and did not even tender Eckstein a contract offer after the 2004 season.”
The Mariners (as well as the rest of the league) are interested in Daisuke Matsuzaka.
That’s it for now; I’ll do the NL some time this week. Promise.
