Hot Rumors

  • According to Yelp, if Brian Sabean needs to change the oil in his rental car, Mobil Lube Express is the place to go in Orlando! It's pretty unlikely that he'd need to change the oil in a rental car, but you never know.
  • The Giants' are likely out of the Cliff Lee sweepstakes.
  • The proposed sign-and-trade, four-team deal between the Giants, Twins, Rockies, and Magic is dead after Dwight Howard exercised his no-trade clause and it was clear that he had no interest in playing in a fictionalized reality that I created while drinking.
  • The Giants have still won the World Series. Seriously.

Cold Rumors

  • The Giants are probably not going to sign Vlad Guerrero after the 2003 season.
  • The Giants are considering trading for Sidney Ponson several years ago.
  • Edgardo Alfonzo is a free agent, and it appears as if he'll be a poor replacement for Jeff Kent.
