Your Off-Season O of the Day: Larry Sheets

If I Were a Rich Man: On the Baltimore Orioles
FanGraphs' Carson Cistulli takes a look at the O's talent and low payroll and likes what he sees (just don't get your panties in a bunch when he mentions Luke being good at defense). -Stacey

Adam Jones speaks about his Gold Glove
Regardless of what you think of the award, it's always nice to read what Adam has to say. When asked about his sprained ankle he says, "I can do the James Brown, so everything feels good." -Stacey

ZAUN on the Market
Believe it or not, Gregg Zaun is the best FA option at catcher this year. I guess it's a good thing we have that covered. -Stacey

Davey Johnson hired by the Nationals
No, not as their manager. As a senior advisor to GM Mike Rizzo. The manager options have been narrowed down to Jim Riggleman and Bobby Valentine. -Stacey

Gold Gloves vs. UZR
Beyond The Boxscore examines the AL Gold Gloves in comparison to defensive stats. The biggest gaffes were with Torii Hunter and Derek Jeter, and by the stats Cesar Izturis should have taken home the hardware at SS. -Stacey

Bedard could be a bargain pick up for the Red Sox suggests Bedard as an option for the Red Sox in 2010. I don't think I'd like that. -Stacey

More Gold Gloves, more head-scratching
Rob Neyer joins the Gold Glove criticism parade. -Stacey

Yankees plotting to keep Damon, Pettitte, Matsui
Of course they are. -Stacey

Bay and Holliday too rich for Mets' blood
The Mets figure on getting priced out of the top to outfield FAs. That happens when the Yankees are in the running. -Stacey

I have two books at my bedside, Lieutenant: the Marine Corps Code of Conduct and the King James Bible. The only proper authorities I am aware of are my commanding officer, Colonel Nathan R. Jessep, and the Open Thread.
