Ken Rosenthall of Fox Sports is reporting that the Atlanta Braves have acquired star slugger Mark Teixeira. This will be a HUGE deal if the report ends up being accurate. For what it’s worth Rosenthall is almost always right on these things.
"The deal is done, pending a review of the medical records of the players involved, according to major-league sources.
The Braves will receive Teixeira and left-handed reliever Ron Mahay.
The Rangers will receive catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Class A shortstop Elvis Andrus and two pitching prospects."
That’s quite a bounty and I like Salty a LOT but you’ve got to think this will be a big boost for the Braves. I’d love to hear what guest blogger Derrek Wonderland has to say about it, since the Braves are his hometown team.

Several sources, including the Seattle Times and the Los Angeles Times, are reporting that Mariners star CF Ichiro Suzuki will sign a five year contract extension, which would keep him in Seattle through 2012. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but it is believed to be in the neighborhood of 5 years and $100 million. Ichiro, in the final year of a 2 year deal paying him $11 million this season, had indicated in Spring Training that he was looking forward to his impending free agency and the chance to test the market. Ichiro told reporters on Monday that the Mariners strong play in the first half of the season played a big part in his decision.
The Mariners had virtually no choice but to go the extra mile to keep their star centerfielder, for a variety of reasons. At 33 years old, Ichiro is still a great player (currently hitting .359 with 61 runs and 23 steals) and is the face of the franchise, not to mention the fact that the Asian population of Seattle is so great that management would have risked alienating a large portion of their fan base if they had let Ichiro get away.
It will be very interesting to see how Ichiro’s signing affects the other future free agent centerfielders, like Tori Hunter and Andruw Jones. It should only increase the demand and drive their price tags even higher, which means that teams with payroll restrictions like the Twins and Braves will have little to no chance to re-sign their star outfielders.
ESPN.com is reporting that Seattle Mariner’s skipper, Mike Hargrove will retire following today’s game. The move comes in the midst of Seattle’s best season in years with the team performing better than anyone expected. I don’t recall a manager stepping away from a team that was performing as well as the M’s are right now and I suspect there’s a bit more to the story than the reasoning Hargrove gave:
"Over the past several weeks, I have come to the realizationthat to be fair to myself and the team, I cannot continue to do
this job if my passion has begun to fade"
Either way, it will certainly be a story to keep your eye on and will be interesting to see how the team responds.
Update: There are rumors running around that Buerhle has resigned with the White Sox for 4 years at $50 million. To me that seems way too low to be true and so far it’s only 3rd hand information. I’ll work under the assumption that he’s not resigned until I find a more reliable source.
I’ve been writing the Rumor Mill for quite a while now and reading rumors for even longer but I can’t remember any situation ever being as crazy as the Mark Buerhle saga. He’s been on the trading block for weeks, several teams have been rumored to be front runners, the Red Sox jumped to the lead, then claimed Chicago had planted the rumors, Buehrle’s affinity for the Cardinals was rumored to be a sticking point with several teams (they were basically assured of getting a rental), and now it appears that Buerhle might not be going anywhere?!?
The Chicago Sun Times today reported that the White Sox and Buerhle have apparently had a change of heart and hope to get an extension done by the end of the week.
"The Boston Red Sox, who had jumped out as the clear favorite to acquire White Sox left-hander Mark Buehrle during the weekend, have pulled out of the sweepstakes, according to one source. And not because the asking price of top minor-league prospects was too high or because they no longer coveted Buehrle’s services, but because Buehrle is no longer on the trading block for the time being."
The article goes on to say
The Sun-Times has learned that a change of heart in both the Buehrle and White Sox camps during the last 48 hours has led to talks about the sides somehow getting together and agreeing on a contract extension by the end of the week.
Now, call me a skeptic but I’ve always had a hard time believing stories that relied heavily on unnamed sources. **** I could sit here and tell you that a "source" from the Cardinals organization told me that they are bringing Big Mac out of retirement and trading for Roger Clemens and Randy Johnson. Of course that would be complete BS but hey, it’s from a source right?
I don’t see any reason Buerhle would sign with any team before testing the free agent market. With the kind of money that was thrown around last year, the offer would have be pretty compelling. Being a Cardinals fan I would like to think that the lefty still wants to play for his home town team and would do so at a considerable discount, however, when you’re talking about that kind of money, I think all bets are off.
There’s sure to be more news and twists in this suddenly entertaining soap opera, and I’ll try to keep you updated as best I can.
