Episode 83: Tejada in, Edmonds out

This week on the podcast:

  • Cubs signing Kosuke Fukudome and Cubs non-tendering Mark Prior. Both sort of hard to quibble with.
  • Houston trading for closer Jose Valverde from the Diamondbacks for 2B Chris Burke and pitchers Juan
  • Gutierrez and Chad Qualls.
  • Houston trading for Miguel Tejada and Tejada appearing in the Mitchell Report.
  • Even more talk about the Mitchell Report.
  • Cardinals trading away Edmonds, and the tears that flowed thereafter. But don’t worry; he’ll be OK.
  • Brewers tendering one-year contracts to: SS J.J. Hardy, RHPs Dave Bush, Claudio Vargas, and Seth McClung, and LHPs Brian Shouse and Chris Capuano.
  • Reds tendering one-year contracts to 2B Brandon Phillips and RHP Matt Belisle, coincidentally two guys likely to show up in the Hottest NLC Player bracket later this week (if I get all my Christmas presents wrapped in time).
  • Pirates continuing to do not much of anything. Imagine.
