- Baseball America has ranked the farm system dead last. Not terribly surprising.
- Bronson Arroyo on being traded to the Reds:
"It's one of those scenarios you feel will never happen to you. Nobody thinks they're going to be the one, whatever, to get in a car wreck to have their, you know, their kids killed in a plane crash, whatever, you don't think those things are going to happen to you. And I didn't think that I'd be traded. So."
- Ryan Wagner might be on the trading block. Whoo boy. Has his stock in the organization really fallen so far? He's actually had a pretty good Spring, for whatever that's worth.
- The 25 greatest Rickey Henderson moments. My favorite:
In the early 1980s, the Oakland A's accounting department was freaking out. The books were off $1 million. After an investigation, it was determined Rickey was the reason why. The GM asked him about a $1 million bonus he had received and Rickey said instead of cashing it, he framed it and hung it on a wall at his house.
