    Talking Baseball: The Hot Stove League Thread

    Okay baseball fans, The Old Town Team won their second World Championship in four years. Let's talk off-season hot-stove league baseball.

    New Yankees manager (Joe Girardi?) and where will A-Rod land? Those will be among the big news stories as we count down to February and Spring Training in Florida and Arizona. Discuss everything off-season here.

    Eduardo Pérez thinks that A-Rod will land with the Angels. Not saying that Perez is the all-knowing.

    The first official offseason trade: Edgar Renteria gets traded from Atlanta to Detroit for prospects.

    BREAKING NEWS!!!

    According to ESPN, the Dodgers are to fire Grady Little and hire Joe Torre. Nothing offical yet.

    Man, that will look weird seeing Torre in Dodger blue.

    Here's a list Yahoo made for the top 10 A-Rod destinations:

    1. Angels
    2. Dodgers
    3. Giants
    4. Cubs
    5. Yankees
    6. Mets
    7. Tigers
    8. Red Sox
    9. Marlins
    10. Rangers

    For the reasons why and why not, here's a link: http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slu...yhoo&type=lgns

    Lots of options beings picked up and not. Dodgers thus far have not picked up Liberthal and Ramon Martinez. The only one left to decide on is Randy Wolf and the word is they will decline the option and try to negotiate his contract.

    Earlier in October Olmedo Saenz and Roberto Hernandez filed for free agency. This week was Gonzo, Seanez, Sweeney, and Wells. Hillenbrand is the other one left now and I don't expect any of them back except maybe Seanez.

    Oh yeah and that whole manager thing... Sigh. If we get Joe, the only thing I'm excited about is if Mattingly comes with him. I think the Dodgers coaches have been lacking for several years.

    Everyones talking A-Rod but I'm curious where Curt Schilling will end up. His list of teams included my Dodgers so it would be interesting. Imagine a late season Schilling vs Maddux game?

    Torre is official. I can think of some strange things in my twisted mind, but I never would have predicted this... Wow.

    Very true. Would be a nice way for him to close things out.

    It would also be a nice 1-2 punch in the Phils' rotation with Hamels.

    The Red Sox and the veteran right-hander have agreed on a one-year, $8 million deal that could be worth as much as $14 million should he reach all the incentives in the package.

    Those incentives include $3 mill based on innings pitched. $1 mill if he earns a Cy Young Award. And $2 million in weight incentives. Yes...weight incentives.
