Around the League:
- The long speculated Mitchell Report is due to come out next week.
- The Brewers acquired RHP Salomon Torres from the Pirates.
- Hardly a blockbuster...
- The Boston Herald says that the Red Sox are now pursuing Orioles' LHP Erik Bedard.
- I don't see the Orioles being stupid enough to trade one of the most talented pitchers in baseball to a team in their own division.
- According to David Lennon, the Mets were in trade talks with the Giants, discussing a possible Milledge-for-Lowry swap before Milledge ended up being traded to the Nationals.
- I would have taken Lowry over Church and Schnieder, but the Giants wanted Milledge plus an additional pitcher for Lowry. If that's the case, Omar made the right move.
