Around MLB

By far the best story of the day comes out of Chicago, where it's not just manager Ozzie Guillen who has a big mouth; apparently it's genetic and electronic as well. I'm not shedding too many tears for Bobby Jenks though. 

One potential person being considered to replace Pedro Feliciano is K-Rod replacer Brian Fuentes, but it looks like he will command a salary at least the equal of Petey.

Patrick Flood takes on the various Hall of Fame philosophies.

Yankee president Randy Levine tells Andy Pettitte that the Yankees need him. George Steinbrenner needed calzones.

Dotel to Toronto.
