The Marlins supposedly made an offer and he brought it back to the Mets who haven't countered yet. If SF and Detroit are in on him, they're doing it on the low low. Braves already ruled out Reyes.

The NY Post is reporting the Yanks would rather sign Mark Buehrle rather than Pay CJ Wilson or Darvish large contracts
...........
Also Yankees appear to be more interested in outfielder Yoennis Cespedes than right-hander Armando Rivero.

What you think of this YoDoods? If the Cubs eat more than half of next year's salary, it's a decent risk.
Depends on what the Cubs also want in return. I would be willing to give up prospects but none of the top guys. (Duffy, Montgomery, Dwyer) I would even be hesitant with giving up Cheslor Cuthbert but he would be a good fit for them considering their third base situation.

My biggest concern is its another Jose Guillen situation. Head case with an over priced contract who cant perform. His numbers have steadily gotten worse over the years and I wonder how much of that is due to him or just the overall sh*tty situation that has been developing in Chicago.

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com was told by sources Wednesday morning that the Phillies are "reconsidering options" in regard to a contract for Ryan Madson.
It appeared that the two sides were close to an agreement on a four-year, $44 million deal, but Jon Heyman of SI.com reported Wednesday morning that the contract is still awaiting approval from Phillies general partner David Montgomery. It's unclear whether the Phillies will revisit discussions with Jonathan Papelbon, but it's not like his asking price will be any cheaper.

sh*t, if the Phillies want to spend that much, might as well sign Papelbon (the proven dominant closer). Screw the late round draft pick. K-Rod and F. Cordero are also available without giving up a draft pick as well.

Cubs are in no position to ask for anything in return. Its clearly going to be a salary dump with probably a B or C prospect involved.

The Phillies have had preliminary discussions with retaining SS Jimmy Rollins, but he still wants a five-year deal, tweets Jon Heyman of SI.com.

Heyman also says there have been no talks between the Red Sox and Carlos Beltran as of yet

The Phillies have yet to secure Ryan Madson as their closer, and Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports says the Nationals could soon get involved

Rosenthal also says that if they fail in their pursuit of LHP Mark Buehrle, the Nationals could look to acquire RHP Carlos Zambrano from the Cubs.

Private workouts will be held this week for Cuban OF Yoenis Cespedes; and*the Marlins expected to bring a large*contingent, writes Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus

Tigers + Reyes is a pipe dream,it won't happen.Don't know why ppl think the tigers have enough cash to give Reyes a monster contract,much more likely that they'd take a look at a guy like Jimmy Rollins if he's not retained.

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the White Sox are drawing interest in John Danks and Gavin Floyd.
It would be more surprising if they didn't hear from anyone, given the lack of quality starting pitchers available in free agency. Danks is due between $7-8 million in his final year of arbitration while Floyd is owed $7 million next season with a $9.5 million club option for 2013. The White Sox are transitioning into a new era with manager Robin Ventura, so it's possible they could be willing to trade one or even both if the offers are appealing enough.
Danks or Floyd in Pinstripes

Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto told Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM that he is not interested in free agent third baseman Aramis Ramirez.
The Angels did have interest in Ramirez around the trade deadline, but things have changed now that there's a new front office. Ramirez declined his portion of a $16 million mutual option for 2012 with the Cubs and should be able to score a multi-year contract this winter as the best third baseman on the market. While the Angels won't be involved in the bidding for Ramirez, Dipoto told Bowden that they definitely have interest in free agent left-hander C.J. Wilson.
halos just love giving out bad contract
Mark Trumbo will work with Angels bench coach Rob Picciolo this offseason to see if he could be a realistic option at third base in 2012.
It was thought that the idea would go on the backburner after Trumbo was shut down in September due to a stress fracture in his right foot, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia broached the topic again earlier this month. "It is going to be explored," said Trumbo. "It (the discussion) was pretty cut and dried. He said, 'I know you've heard a lot of talk about this. We'd like to give it a look at least and if things look okay, we'll explore it further. If not -- no harm done.'" The idea is to find a spot for Trumbo in the lineup a.ssuming Kendry Morales (ankle) will be ready to play by Opening Day. While this would be an ideal scenario for the Angels, Trumbo has limited experience at the position and most scouts believe he would be a poor fit.

The Marlins are scheduled to meet with free agent first baseman Albert Pujols in Miami within the next few days, possibly as soon as Saturday, a source tells Matthew Leach of MLB.com.

It's tough to gauge how serious the Marlins might be about signing Pujols, who figures to command a contract comfortably north of $200MM, but they have already been linked, to varying degrees, to a handful of free agents, such as Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, C.J. Wilson, Mark Buehrle and Cuban defector Yoenis Cespedes, throughout the early goings of the offseason.

It's not yet known whether the Cardinals and Pujols have had any discussions regarding a new contract, according to Leach.

The Marlins have made "substantial offers" to both Albert Pujols and Jose Reyes, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (Twitter link). The team met with Pujols today and Reyes on Wednesday.
I love it. Let this happen. (It won't)

The Twins have agreed to sign Jamey Carroll to be their everyday shortstop, according to ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick. The two-year contract is pending a physical and, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, will be worth $7MM or so (Twitter link). The Millenium Sports Management client drew interest from multiple teams this offseason before signing with the Twins, who are operating under interim GM Terry Ryan.


The Blue Jays and 4-6 other teams have shown interest in Jonathan Broxton and asked for his medical records, according to ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick (Twitter links). The Mets have not yet inquired on the 27-year-old free agent. Broxton had arthroscopic elbow surgery in September and plans to start throwing in two weeks.
Matt Stairs buried this man.

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Friday that talks with the representatives for David Ortiz are ongoing.
"We have had a lot of dialogue with David and his agents," said Cherington. "Because of what I feel, and I think he feels, is a little bit more of a defined market for that role it's been easier to engage sooner. It's probably less likely to be a situation where he gets into the market and there's something that he's pushed into a corner on. David knows we want him to be here. We want him to be back with the Red Sox. We want him in our lineup. We've had a lot of dialogue to see if there's a way to do that and I think that will continue." Ortiz, who turns 36 next week, earned $12.5 million this season while batting .309/.398/.554 with 29 homers, 96 RBI and a .953 OPS. He will likely aim for a multi-year contract with a similar annual salary.
According to Jon Heyman of SI.com, the Marlins have made an offer to Mark Buehrle.
Heyman also confirmed that the Marlins have made offers to Albert Pujols and Jose Reyes, but writes that there's "nothing close." Like Pujols and Reyes, Buehrle visited with the Marlins this week. The veteran left-hander is reportedly drawing interest from as many as ten teams and should be able to find a lucrative multi-year contract in a weak market for free agent starting pitchers.

According to Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun, the Blue Jays are making inquiries about free agent Ryan Madson.
Just a few days ago it appeared Madson was staying in Philadelphia for the long haul, but he'll have to get his money elsewhere after the Phillies agreed to a contract with Jonathan Papelbon on Friday. The Blue Jays don't have a closer at the moment, but it would likely take a four-year deal in order to sign Madson. Jon Heyman of SI.com reported Friday afternoon that the Red Sox, Rangers and Nationals are among the teams interested.
