- The Red Sox are preparing for life without David Ortiz, and will look to the market for a replacement. If Ben Broussard isn't called up by today, he could be released. The Red Sox could look to him as a short term replacement. Other options include former Sox prospect Matt Murton, Rockies outfielder Ryan Spilborghs, and maybe free agents Sammy Sosa or Reggie Sanders. Spilborghs seems like a good fit.
- Jose Canseco called out Curt Schilling to fight him in Las Vegas over the summer, also saying that the bloody sock was ketchup. If Canseco is serious about fighting, I recommend he fights Kimbo Slice.
- According to a source, Mariners scouts were watching Derek Lowe pitch last night at the Dodgers game, suggesting that they may be interested in bringing back the veteran starter. If the Mariners can turn their season around, maybe they make this deal. As of right now though, I doubt it.
- I am setting up a live chat via phone for anyone who wants to talk about the draft on Thursday. Make sure to call in with questions and comments. More details soon.
