UPDATE: Chien-Ming Wang has a couple of offers

5:23pm: Rosenthal reports that two teams have already made Chien-Ming Wang offers, have watched him pitch multiple times and have even given him a physical.  The teams that made said offers have not been identified, but Rosenthal reports that the Mets or Dodgers are not one of them, despite the fact that they probably need him more than anyone.

Wang is expected to make his mind up soon.  There’s probably no reason to expect him to pitch in a game until the season is at least a couple months old.

No telling how he’ll do once he’s activated, but he’s a decent gamble for anyone who figures that they’ll gave to make some mid-season pickup for pitching anyway. Which is pretty much everyone most years.

    This guy is going to make a lot of teams wish they had given him a shot. He’s a winner!

    Mitchell Seale you are right on. Wang is a winner and will be a superb addition to any pitching hungry club. I can’t understand why the Dodgers have not signed him up, especially with Torre and Mattingly there in L.A.
