Jason Bay passed his physical and will be introduced to the media this morning at an 11:00 press conference.
Carlos Delgado went 1 for 4 in his first winter league game on Sunday. Omar took notice and the team is definitely interested in bringing the aging first baseman back.
Darryl Strawberry will join Cyndi Lauper, Rod Blagojevich, Bret Michaels, Goldberg, Sinbad, and a few others on the cast of this season's Celebrity Apprentice. This may be the first reality show I will ever watch.

Joe Posnanski compiles an amazing list of the best players since 1970. Seriously, take a look.
Pujols as a Yankee. Cringe.
