    Nick Johnson is the odds on favorite.

    Edit - should have paged ahead.

    Whoa.
    http://www.latimes.com/sports/sports...,7967920.story
    Angels nine-time Gold Glove-winning right fielder Torii Hunter returned to his Newport Beach home from Wednesday morning workouts at Dodger Stadium and settled in for a movie on the couch when he heard someone fiddling with his front door.

    “I grabbed a knife and was about to start Bruce Lee-ing on whoever was there,” Hunter said.

    Good thing Hunter didn’t take the steak knife outside, where police were waiting with guns drawn after the outfielder’s home alarm had accidentally been activated by a door that was opened in the house.

    “They said, ‘Put your hands up!’ ” said Hunter. “I’m like, ‘Man, this is my home!’ They asked me questions about who I was. They asked me to go upstairs and get my I.D. The guns were out. I was a prisoner in my own home.”

    Hunter said after he handed over the identification and confirmed his middle name, “Kedar,” he told the officers he was an Angels’ player.

    “They said they go to a lot of games, and I’m looking at them like, ‘Come on, man,’ ” Hunter said. “It was funny, but not too funny, kind of scary. If I went outside with that knife, I might’ve died.

    “But they did what they were supposed to, protected my home and did everything right. It was just an … awkward moment.”

    Re: Interesting Baseball News Items That Do Not Warrant Their Own Thread

    A bit too much first HR appreciation for Yoenis Cespedes:
    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-bi...143158074.html
    Playing in only his third major league game, the A's rookie outfielder launched what will end up being one of the most impressive home runs this season. A two-run straightaway rocket to center field, the blast bounced off a facade and provided Oakland's lone bright spot in a 7-3 opening night loss to Seattle on Friday. Hit Tracker Online estimated the homer's distance at 462 feet.
    Cespedes' swing was so swift and the results so titanic that the 26-year-old rookie reacted with a hop and extended gaze toward the ball's eventual destination. That didn't please Seattle pitcher Jason Vargas at all — especially since the A's were trailing 5-0 at the time — and Cespedes later realized he may have made a mistake by violating the unwritten rule of watching the ball too long.
    This is what happens when they let him pal around with Manny in ST.

    If I blasted a shot like that, I'd admire it too.

    Does Ozzie realize that he works in Miami now?
    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-bi...034019658.html
    Yet if there's a line to cross, Guillen will somehow find it. He's now drawing criticism just one week into his first regular season with the Marlins after expressing a respect for former Cuban leader Fidel Castro during an interview with Time's Sean Gregory.
    "I respect Fidel Castro," Guillen said in the article. "You know why? A lot of people have wanted to kill Fidel Castro for the last 60 years, but that [expletive] is still here."

    So there's a Cuban-American group saying they will boycott going to any Marlins games until Ozzie is fired. Uh, so what's the difference between before and now?

    Given Marlins' attendance figures, seems like that boycott started a long time ago and this is just a retroactive justification for it.

    Brandon Phillips: 6 years 72.5 mil

    The Reds have agreed to extend second baseman Brandon Phillips, Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio tweets. The deal covers Phillips' 2012-17 seasons, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets. The ACES client agreed to a six-year deal worth $72.5MM.



    Phillips would have been eligible for free agency following the 2012 season if the Reds hadn't locked him up. Instead, he'll be in Cincinnati through his age-36 season.

    Yeah, not sure the before/after will be that noticeable. I lived down there and let me say once the curiousity factor of the new stadium wears off, it'll be back to friends and family in the stands. They may draw some if they win but I doubt we'll see many full houses, even with the small 37,000 capacity.
    Life is good!

    Probably a bit heavy on years but he didn't get a raise and he's a huge fan favorite. Not too bad for a 2B who averages like 3 WAR/year.

    So the Reds have roughly $320 Million in a 1B who is not even in the top 5 if barely, an average 2B and a LOOGY. Pathetic.
