    Image (1) pujols%20homer.jpg for post 5214

    At this point it looks like there could be as many as three teams making ten-year offers to Albert Pujols. Which makes me want to back to the halcyon days of, oh, three hours ago when I was on NBC SportsTalk, speculatin’ about where he might go. The sense then seemed like Miami. Still kind…

  6. If the Cardinals lose Albert Pujols…

    Dec 6, 2011, 8:23 PM EDT

    Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday

    Because that certainly seems to be the way things are going down at the moment. The Cardinals were supposed to be set at first base and in right field if Pujols departed, as Lance Berkman would move a first base position that fits him a whole lot better anyway and Allen Craig would take over…

  7. Report: Ryan Madson, Francisco Rodriguez will decline arbitration

    Dec 6, 2011, 7:57 PM EDT

    Francisco Rodriguez

    Although the market for relievers seems in serious decline, especially in light of the Blue Jays’ trade for a closer and the Rockies’ struggles in giving Huston Street away, neither Ryan Madson or Francisco Rodriguez have any plans to accept arbitration offers, according to MLB Network’s Peter Gammons. Madson and K-Rod would be very interesting…

  8. The Marlins have some interest in Wandy Rodriguez

    Dec 6, 2011, 7:43 PM EDT

    Wandy Rodriguez

    We learned earlier today that if the Marlins do indeed sign Albert Pujols, they’ll be out on free agent left-handers C.J. Wilson and Mark Buehrle and turn their focus on the trade market.

    Dec 6, 2011, 7:30 PM EDT

    Billy Beane

    Billy Beane never sticks around until the end of the winter meetings, and this year won’t be any different, even though he could be looking at an outfield of Jermaine Mitchell, Jai Miller and Ryan Sweeney if the season started tomorrow. MLB.com’s Jane Lee points out that Beane is leaving Dallas tonight without the A’s…

    7:13 p.m. EST update: Danny Knobler of CBS Sports reports that the Astros tried to interest the Indians in Carlos Lee, but that even covering half of his $18 million salary wasn’t enough to tempt Cleveland. Lee does offer a solid right-handed bat, but he’d have to come in at significantly less than $9 million to…

    Dec 6, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Mike Scioscia

    The Angels led the AL in ERA last year, while finishing 10th in runs scored, yet manager Mike Scioscia would prefer a pitcher to a hitter as the team’s big addition this winter. “We need to get stronger pitching,” Scioscia said. “I know you look at Weav and Haren and Santana and it sounds like…

  14. UPDATE: David Ortiz to accept arbitration, stay with Red Sox

    Dec 6, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    David Ortiz

    7:00 p.m. EST update: ESPN Deportes’ Enrique Rojas reports that Ortiz is planning to accept Boston’s offer of arbitration, something that should guarantee him at least a modest raise from the $12.5 million he made last season.

    oswalt wide getty

    Bill Ladson of MLB.com hears that Roy Oswalt is looking for a three-year contract. And after Bruce Chen, Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang have all received two-year deals this offseason, some team might be willing to go there. Of course, the major concern with Oswalt is his degenerative back condition. While the 34-year-old right-hander had…

    Dec 6, 2011, 6:10 PM EDT

    Kyle Lohse

    There have been several reports that the Cardinals are looking to trade Kyle Lohse, presumably to open up a rotation spot for Mark Buehrle, but one potential stumbling block is that Lohse has a full no-trade clause. And according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch he would use it to block a…

    Transitioning baseball writer Jon Heyman (he’s taken SI.com out of his profile, but he’s still dishing the goods while his move to CBS Sports is in progress) tweets that the Marlins are going to limit themselves to one more splash: Hearing marlins won’t do 2 more big free agents. If they get pujols they’ll be…

    Hiroyuki_Nakajima AP

    UPDATE II: Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston was told by a Red Sox official that they did not post a bid for Nakajima. That makes three denials, if you include the Giants and Brewers.
