If I missed out anyone give me a shout on Twitter.
A week ago I wrote how Jeff Luhnow should make a play for Mike Gonzalez. He's cheap for a Scott Boras client, is looking to rebound and could be flipped in the summer if he does well. MLB trade rumors obviously thinks so too, I just wish they'd give me an attribution because I've got a big ego.
In other pretty big news Milo Hamilton has decided to call it quits after the 2012 season. With Milo Hamilton we have been truly lucky to have one of the premier voices commentating on our franchise. However I think it is the right time to find someone who could become the new voice of the franchise, and could compete against the awesome JD & Brownie in the TV booth.
We're getting rather close to Spring Training and camp will open for pitchers and catchers in five days. FIVE.
