Sorry there were no blogs yesterday. My computer has been down since Wednesday night. Here’s all the updates:
According to Ken Rosenthal over at FoxSports.com, the New York Mets appear to be among several teams who have made contract offers to relief pitcher Will Ohman.
The other teams are the Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies. There is one more team. They still have not made an offer.
It was believed the Braves were close to signing Ohman, this according text messages received by David O’Brien over at the Atlanta Journal Constitution from the pitcher.
Really? Pitchers are texting the media now? I find that hard to believe. How would the pitcher even get O’Brien’s number and vice versa?
Yeah, I’m not buying into that one too much. I’ll stick with Rosenthal.
Reports on the St. Louis Cardinals site say the team has come to terms with outfielder Rick Ankiel. The contract is for one year, $2.825 million.
The team and player were set to go to arbitration. Ankiel was asking for $3.3 million, while the team was only offering $2.35 million.
The Florida Marlins lost the arbitration case against Dan Uggla.
The player has been awarded $5.35 million for 2009. As always, the Marlins played stingy only offering $4.4 million.
I guess we know who will be traded during the season. The Marlins cannot afford $5.35 million. They don’t make that much in a year due to the lack of fans.
That is just so sad.
