Hanley Ramirez is Open to Playing Third Base….. Maybe

Hanley Ramirez gave a Spanish interview the other day to an AP’s reporter.  Unfortunately I don’t speak Spanish.  But luckily for me the good people over a MLBTraderumors.com either know Spanish or have an interpreter on retainer.  So here you go,  “I’ve talked with [Ozzie] Guillen, and what we both want is to win with […]

Aaron Rowand Signs Minor League Deal with Miami

Aaron Rowand is back in baseball after the Marlins signed him to a minor league deal today.  I’m going to bet that he makes the team as a 5th outfielder.  Supposedly the new Miami Marlins park is very hitter friendly so do what you want with that info.  Rowand isn’t all that bad of a […]

Phillies Officially Sign Jim Thome: Fantasy Perspective

The Phillies officially signed Jim Thome to a 1 year $1.25 million dollar deal.  This is a pretty interesting move for both the Phillies and Thome.  Unless the Ryan Howard injury takes longer then expected to heal I just can’t see Thome getting a whole lot of playing time except as a pinch hitter and […]
