    How many pounds is Zambrano going to be at training camp?

    I'm betting 300.

    I have an interesting bet on Zambrano. His weight vs. his ERA. Which will be larger number?

    Who is Heath Phillips and when exactly did he receive that $400 million contract?

    That lept up off of the page at me also. Never heard of him, and certainly of his contract. Maybe he was referring to Heath Ledger's movie contract, however, that contract (as well as Heath) is dead.

    Take away Pettite, Mo, Jorge and A-Rod (all players who were on the team last year) and what are you left with?

    A whole bunch of wash-up. Hawkins and Ensberg should have stayed in the weaker NL.

    Dunno, cut/pasted those stats from ESPN.

    Guess that's a typo but that's still about $400,000,000 in signings.


    Still say the Jays finish 3rd though.
