I had a hearing today. Thought I'd be done by noon. I wasn't. So I ended up not being able to blog today. Sorry.
Meantime...Joe Sheehan has a chat session up with several Rangers items. Among other things, he thinks Ian Kennedy alone isn't enough for the Yanks to get Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Jayson Stark says Hank Blalock and Vicente Padilla are both Plan B or C for most teams with some interest in them. With the Dodgers hot to move Andy LaRoche, I wonder if a deal centered around Blalock and LaRoche could work.
