-Josh Anderson was traded to the Royals for cash considerations today. If the Yankees really did want him, I feel horrible for him. Goes from being a Brave to a Tiger to a ROYAL?
-John Grabow and Tom Gorzelanny were traded to the Cubs today.
-Jarrod Washburn is apparently available and the Mariners originally asked for one of Joba Chamberlain or Phil Hughes. Once the Yankees balked at that, they will now look for a B-type prospect.
-David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez were two of the names in the infamous 2003 "list." The reason this isn't going to be all over my blog today is because-well-this isn't news. Everyone knew Manny used steroids and everyone basically knew Ortiz did but he never admitted it or was caught. Don't go quick to call their world series "tainted", as I would have to agree with Peter Gammons on this one. He said since 1989 all world series can be viewed as "tainted" in one way or another.
