The Mets could be shedding one of their surplus catchers, particularly the one named Santos.

Carlos Silva is happy that his fatness is no longer being held against him by his team.
I sort of cringe when I think of Tom Seaver as a Brave.
Texas has voided Khalil Greene's contract after the shortstop failed to show up to Spring Training. Greene had two stints on the DL last year for social anxiety issues.
