Who's the cleverest guy in all of baseball? That'd be one Tom "Flash" Gordon. He was somehow able to convince the Phillies to give him a three-year, $18 million contract to close for them! The guy is 38 years old and hasn't been a closer since '01. I've got no problems having him in my 'pen as a set-up man, but methinks I'd look elsewhere for someone to handle the closing duties.

Is anyone else curious who the Marlins will have on the field next season? The winter meetings haven't even begun and they've already traded their first, second, and third basemen, not to mention one of the aces of the pitching staff. Center fielder Juan Pierre and catcher Paul Lo Duca are certain to be the next contestants on the Salary Purge Jamboree.

I realize payroll is a huge factor in the daily business of baseball, but this is getting ridiculous...
