BASEBALL: Maddux For Sale

While he's apparently still in talks with the Cubs, ESPN reports on rumors that Greg Maddux could be close to signing with the Yankees. The rich get richer? Brian Cashman denies that he's talking to Maddux. Maddux is ideally suited for a team like the Yanks or Cubs, that can put him at the back of the rotation; he's basically a league-average starter at this stage, which is still a useful commodity as long as you don't expect him to have an ERA around 3.00 or lower.

(Warning: ESPN link opens a popup that's very hard to close).

I love the guy, but as a Braves fan I can attest that he's a decent 6 inning pitcher. I'd rather have a healthy Adam Eaton at this stage, personally.

If ESPN opens a hard-to-close popup, then try the google toolbar which gives us access to easily search google and a popup killer. This isn't an advertisement, just an idea.
