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.
