Jeff says the Indian's
bullpen is looking especially good
with young Fernando Cabrera as possible closer material.
Also optimistic about Howry, Rafael Betancourt, & Riske.
On the Diamondbacks, Eric Byrnes is a short-term
defensive hire til Chris Young is ready; shows management
doesn't have much faith in Luis Terrero. On the Angels needs
for bats, says Casey Kotchman will help. On signing Troy
Glaus, the Blue Jays will look to trade Hillenbrand, Hinske,
or Koskie. On the Pirates, is high on p's Oliver Perez &
Kip Wells, & bullpen p's Mike Gonzalez & Damaso Marte.
With the A's, Mark Ellis is under the radar--has good BA and
power. High on Dan Johnson at 1B. The Red Sox CF is more
likely to be Jeremy Reed than Coco Crisp at this point. They
are extremely well-stocked with pitchers.
