Around the MLB Horn 09 Jan 2011

After the Yankees losing out on their number one target , Cliff Lee, the Yankees are still unsure about Andy Pettitte. Pettitte has expressed multiple times that he is leaning towards retirement, and the Yankees organization should plan ahead without him. More talk surrounding the Yankees concerning Marcus Thames have coaxed them to seek other options for the outfield. One option would include signing Andruw Jones. Jones, 33, batted .230 with 19 home runs and 48 RBIs in 107 games for the White Sox last season while seeing time in all three outfield positions. Jones also has experience in the DH spot. Thames on the other hand played more DH position for the Yankees last season than the outfield.

One of the bigger news in the Major Leagues right now is the deal between Matt Garza, and the Chicago Cubs. Its been said that the Tampa Bay Rays are looking to receive quite a bit of prospects for Matt Garza. Chris Archer who won the 2010 Minor League Pitcher of the Year award, Brandon Guyer who won the 2010 Minor League Player of the Year award, shortstop Hak-Ju Lee, catcher Robinson Chirinos, and outfielder Sam Flud would all go to the Rays for Matt Garza. Most prospects posting some above average numbers, and fans already speculate the Rays losing Garza would not be playoff contenders in the upcoming seasons. The Cubs, if aquired Garza would have a strong pitching rotation that would include Carlos Zambrano, Ryan Dempster, Randy Wells, Tom Gorzelanny, and Carlos Silva.

There has been light talk of Albert Pujols up and coming contract. Sources say that something needs to happen before spring training or else Pujols wont be available for talk about contracts during the season.

Joe Torre will be looking to latch onto a position as a MLB executive VP. Since the former manager of the Yankees, and the Dodgers has left that important managerial position he has been seeking other employment within baseball, and has been steadily talking to Bud Selig to become the executive VP of operations for MLB.
