    *** MLB Off-season ***

    I've been mostly off the grid for the past week, but here's what I know so far...

    --Leyland's coming back to manage Detroit
    --Indians are picking up Jiminez' option
    --Royals got Ervin Santana
    --Delmon Young and Jose Valverde will NOT be pursued by the Tigers
    --Rays picked up James Shields' option
    --Francona will manage the Indians
    --John Ferrell will manage the Red Sox
    --Blue Jays are still searching for a manager

    What am I missing?

    White Sox signed Peavy to a 2-year deal with an option for a 3rd. Also picked up Floyd's option so their starting rotation is petty much set depending upon Dank's health. White Sox did not pick up the options on Brett Myers or Kevin Youkilis' contracts...

    Re: *** MLB Off-season ***

    VERY WEAK Free Agent class so I anticipate a ton of trades. Like the Santana move for KC, I think he will be ok in the central. They have so many guys at AAA and coming off the DL that SOMEONE should be able to step in and do well. Really looking forward to Wil Myers in KC too.

    Pretty sad to see that the Twins would only pick up Joe Blanton and Scott Baker. I don't think they'll take on Baker, and I'd rather see them go after Haren than Blanton.

    What's Hochevar's situation with KC this off-season?

    Like to see the Cards bring Dan Haren back..........you can never have enough pitching, i know they are counting on the young kids to come up - but Carp is getting older and Garcia is a wildcard.

    Wish the Twins would make a splash.

    Marlins just hired Mike Redmond to be their manager.

    If this is what the Yankees are gonna do someone should be on the hot seat...ridiculous that they will not learn from the past 2 seasons.

    Wow...he sure rose up quickly. I remember all of the Twins writers saying that he had managerial potential, so I was pretty bummed when the Twins couldn't find a coaching job for him in their farm system somewhere.

    Good for Redmond; I love that guy.

    It may be best to not even offer him arbitration. They have team control for one more year, but they can still non-tender him. He's going to cost $5 million or so in arbitration. Wayyyyy too much for a reliever who sucks out of the stretch.

    If I had any confidence in Dayton more to spend $5 million wisely, I'd be totally on board with nontendering Hochevar.

    I like the Santana move. It's a nice hedge, because it gives them flexibility next offseason and also gives them a solid arm in case they aren't able to sign a #3-type SP.
