The Tigers should just trade him to us now. We can send them five suitcases full of hundred-dollar bills and Debbi Taylor.

Why not just offer them what was in the suitcase Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta had at the diner in Pulp Fiction?

My apologies if someone noted this elsewhere, but Joel Pineiro and the Angels have apparently agreed to a two-year deal. (Link: http://mlb.fanhouse.com/2010/01/21/joel-pineiro-angels-reportedly-agree-to-two-year-deal/)

Quote
Joel Pineiro is fresh off arguably the best season of his career, and he has reportedly been rewarded with a two-year contract worth $16 million to join the Los Angeles Angels.

Pineiro, 30, put together a nice 2009 campaign after suffering through several seasons of injury and inconsistency. He went 15-12 with a 3.49 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. The 214 innings pitched represented a career high, while the wins, ERA and WHIP were each the second-best marks of his career in those respective categories. He also matched career highs with three complete games and two shutouts.

Pineiro will now slide into an Angels rotation that has a handful of very good pitchers but no real ace. Jered Weaver, Scott Kazmir, Ervin Santana and Joe Saunders will be the other four taking the ball every fifth day for the Halos. They had lost John Lackey to free agency earlier this offseason.

While Pineiro did spend the last few seasons in the National League, he began his career in the AL West, with the Seattle Mariners. Thus, it shouldn't be unfamiliar moving out west.

Edit: Whoops, it's in the Hot Stove thread. Should have gone back a page!  :-[

Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera undergoing alcohol abuse treatment
By Steve Kornacki
January 21, 2010, 12:10PM


Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera this morning revealed that he has spent three months undergoing alcohol abuse treatment with a doctor in Miami.

"When you've got problems," said Cabrera, "you can't hide."

Cabrera had an embarrassing incident during the last weekend of the 2009 season. He was out drinking the night before a key game against the Chicago White Sox, returned home to get into a fight with his wife and ended up in the Birmingham Police Department. No charges were filed.

"As a ballplayer, you do something like that and you have a problem," Cabrera said. "I want to play a lot of years and right now I feel comfortable. I feel great."

Cabrera said he has not had a drink since beginning consoling, which will continue with the same doctor during spring training and the regular season.

Cabrera credited Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski and others in the organization for helping him through the situation.

"Hopefully, (fans) can see that he's taken steps and understand that he's had problems," Dombrowski said. "...he is in a different place that way. He has worked very hard.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Oakland Athletics prospect Grant Desme is retiring from baseball to enter the priesthood.

Desme was recently selected the 2009 Arizona Fall League MVP and was considered one of the top prospects in Oakland's system.

"We respect Grant's decision and wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors," A's general manager Billy Beane said in a statement.

The 23-year-old outfielder batted .288 with 31 homers, 89 RBIs and 40 stolen bases in 131 games at Class-A Kane County and Stockton last season.

He then hit .315 with a league-leading 11 home runs and 27 RBIs in 27 games in the fall league.

Desme was a second-round pick selection in the 2007 draft after being named Big West Player of the Year at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

Dang, I was hoping to snag him with a late pick in my AL roto farm draft.  Good luck to him!

I'm not religious, so it's not something I would have ever done, and I love baseball, so I'm sad that he would do that, but ... whatever works for him.
