Why the dutch oven? Because the term 'hot stove' needs to be retired. This feature will attempt to give you a listicle-driven source for all sorts of off-season baseball rumors. If you have any suggestions, rumors, or recipes that I can cook in my dutch oven, email us

  • Dodgers Beat Columnist Wishing and Hoping for CC: Tony Jackson blogs that the Sabathia Sweepstakes might come down to two teams: the Giants and the Dodgers. What, no Yankees? According to Jackson, the fact that Sabathia still hasn't accepted the Yankees mega-offer from last week seems to say that CC don't wanna pitch in no New York City. Why the Dodgers? Because CC likes to hit and just bought a house in SoCal. Why the Giants? Because Sabean doesn't learn from past mistakes.

  • Oakland Signs Relief Pitcher I've Never Heard Of: Seriously, this guy has been in the majors for three years, but I guess I never heard of him because he pitched for the Nationals, a team that needs relief pitchers like a fish needs a bicycle. What is there to "relieve" in Warshington when the team never has a lead? Enjoy the Chris Schroder Era, A's fans.

  • Mike Mussina Retirement Rumors Leak, Agent Hollers at Media: So the Mike Mussina retirement rumors leaked last night (via Ken Rosendwarf) and we all cried a single tear. But then Mussina's agent Arn Tellem issued this statement: "Given the significance of this to Mike, I would hope you can respect his desire to be the author of any such announcement consistent with his own time table. A decision of this magnitude should not be the subject of unconfirmed rumors and speculation." Yeah! You tell 'em, Tellem.

  • Cardinals Sup from the Teat of Tampa's Bullpen: St. Louis liked what they saw in Tampa's many-headed bullpen beast, so G.M. John Mozeliak threw some sheckels at lefty Trever Miller and brought him in for a physical. Things I did not know: Miller has been in the majors since 1996.

Figures they'd go after Trever Miller. The super friendly Cards fans probably wouldn't be very welcoming to Grant Curse-You-Out-Between-Pitches Balfour.

An agent upset that something has been leaked to the press? It's Karma, Arm... a.

Because Sabean doesn't learn from past mistakes.
EVERYTHING'S COMING UP ZITO!

Saaaaaved byyyy Ziiiii-toooo.
