One day into Spring Training and Closers are already falling like flys. Ryan Madsen of the Angels and Frank Francisco of the Mets both experiencing some elbow soreness. Could I interest either team in an already under contract for 2013 Jim Johnson, perhaps? Kaleb Cowart or Wilmer Flores would look mighty nice in the O's farm system. MLBTR has a post up regarding the Padres continuing search for a 5th starter. O's have them in spades, and the Friars have a plethora of assorted and miscellaneous prospects they could part with in return. I dunno...just spitballin ideas here...Opening Day is still too far away. le sigh. Onto the links like ketchup, mustard, and / or relish!
