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
- Phillies Replace All Hit No Glove Corner Outfielder with All Hit No Glove Corner Outfielder: Welp, looks like the Pat Burrell Era of hittin' and swingin' in Philly is over. New G.M. Ruben Amaro made his big splash in the free agent market, signing former Mariner Raul Ibanez to a tidy deal, sez Jayson Stark of ESPN. Three years and $30 million? That's a steal.
- Red Sox Decide They Need To Take More Money From Stereotypically Devoted Fanbase: Remember the episode of the Simpsons where, in order to compete with the Lisa Lionheart doll with a brain, the Malibu Stacy people released a new Malibu Stacy with a hat? Yeah, that's what I was reminded of when the Red Sox decided to change their logo for the 2009 season. OMIGOD A NEW HAT WITH SOCKS!
- Mike Cameron Deal to the Yankees On Again, Off Again, On Again: How do I know that the possible Mike Cameron-Melky Cabrera trade between the Yankees and the Brewers has reached critical mass? Because even my Uncle Geno knows about it and weighed in with his opinion. "Yeah that Mike Cameron wasn't too bad when he was a Met, huh? That Mikey Cabrera, he don't play so good no more. It's a good trade. Now go get me a sfogliatelle.
- Rinku and Dinesh Hit the Big Time, Go On the Tonight Show: Well not really. They were in the audience for a taping of Jay Leno's Tonight Show with all the hausfraus from the flyover states. They were lucky enough to see Tom Cruise, Frank Caliendo, and The Cure, who they described by saying, "many people seem to like them because they all screaming like crazy." I'd be screaming like crazy if I saw this guy up close too, Rinku.
