Moses: When are we going to be able to settle our Patterson wager? I'll be out of town from Friday 12/23 - Wednesday 12/28, but will be happy to drink or pay for a free beer after then.

What commandment was that..
Thou shall not be tender to your patterson
   3. DEF Posted: December 20, 2005 at 02:19 PM (#1786072)
TJ Tucker has been quoted as saying he's agreed to a minor league deal with the Nats, which means that he'll be non-tendered today and signed tomorrow. He's rehabbing from surgery and probably won't pitch until June/July.

I'd be surprised if Timo wasn't gone.
   7. Jimmy P Posted: December 20, 2005 at 02:54 PM (#1786108)
I wouldn't. He's a proven veteran, and he's hispanic. On the White Sox, that makes a big difference.

It's the moment of truth for KW and Oz.

"I wouldn't. He's a proven veteran, and he's hispanic. On the White Sox, that makes a big difference."

Hence the off-season acquisition of Jose Thome, and the re-signing of Pedro Konerko and AJ (Antonio Juan) Pierzynski.

Don't forget Credandez at third and Raul Iguchi at second.
   11. VG Posted: December 20, 2005 at 03:31 PM (#1786152)
Not to mention the trading of Damaso Marté, Orlando Hernández and Luis Vizcaino.
   12. Raleigh Horn Posted: December 20, 2005 at 03:31 PM (#1786153)
The Sox could use a Shortstop, what's the UZR on ???????????????
   13. Raleigh Horn Posted: December 20, 2005 at 03:34 PM (#1786158)
Vince, you mean Damien Martin, Orrin Herdon, and Louis Viccepi? This joke has gotten 50% less funny with each retelling, but the first one was awesome!
   14. Der Komminsk-sar Posted: December 20, 2005 at 03:39 PM (#1786169)
??????????????? is really more of a utility guy than a shortstop.
   15. PhillyBooster Posted: December 20, 2005 at 03:43 PM (#1786175)
It's the moment of truth for KW and Oz.

One might have though that the "moment of truth" occurred somewhere around the last week or so of October.

Anyway, I hear there will soon be a lot of job opening for New York subway employees, so these guys shouldn't be out of work long.
   16. VG Posted: December 20, 2005 at 03:43 PM (#1786177)
Damien Martin is pretty good, Raleigh Horn. He had a devil of a time finding the strike zone last year...
   17. My guest will be Jermaine Allensworth Posted: December 20, 2005 at 03:46 PM (#1786182)
??????????????? is really more of a utility guy than a shortstop.

I was wondering where Shane Halter was.

You were the only one.
   19. Jefferson Manship (Dan Lee) Posted: December 20, 2005 at 03:53 PM (#1786196)
I was wondering where Shane Halter was.

He, Casey Candaele, Manny Alexander, and Bill Spiers have opened a Utility Infielder Fantasy Camp in Surprise, Arizona. For like $2,000, you get to learn how to do everything adequately except hit.
   20. cercopithecus aethiops Posted: December 20, 2005 at 03:53 PM (#1786197)
I think you meant Joaquin Thome and Pablo Konerko.

And I can't follow this tonight, 'cause my laptop's on the fritz. Feck.
   22. More Dewey is Always Good Posted: December 20, 2005 at 04:18 PM (#1786258)
I wouldn't. He's a proven veteran, and he's hispanic. On the White Sox, that makes a big difference.

Also, the one opening on their bench seems to be for a fourth outfielder/pinch hitter type, and Ozzie Guillen seems to think Timo is a good defensive outfielder and a capable pinch-hitter, neither of which is true.
   23. Jimmy P Posted: December 20, 2005 at 04:51 PM (#1786362)
I was wondering where Shane Halter was.

I'm sure Baird and Littlefield are looking, too
   24. Darren Posted: December 20, 2005 at 05:34 PM (#1786504)
Here's something from the oc register:

The Dodgers have until 9 tonight to offer salary arbitration to their remaining eligible players, Jason Phillips and Hee-Seop Choi. Phillips is all but certain to become a non-tender free agent. Choi has been offered a one-year contract despite the fact that Garciaparra's signing, Olmedo Saenz's re-signing and Kent's availability to play first base make his value to the team limited.

If Choi does not accept the contract offer, he will not be offered arbitration.


That's a little surprising. You'd think they could get something in a trade for Choi. Any team interested in him would probably prefer to get the chance to pay him the tiny arb amount he'll get. (low ba and rbi)
   25. More Dewey is Always Good Posted: December 20, 2005 at 06:05 PM (#1786551)
Phillips is all but certain to become a non-tender free agent.

No more living paycheck-to-paycheck for him!
   26. Moses Taylor, Unwavering Optimist Posted: December 20, 2005 at 06:12 PM (#1786560)
Moses: When are we going to be able to settle our Patterson wager? I'll be out of town from Friday 12/23 - Wednesday 12/28, but will be happy to drink or pay for a free beer after then.

I'm sure we'll find a time for a weekday happy hour.

Finally, some action from the Padres.

   29. Snowboy Posted: December 20, 2005 at 11:09 PM (#1787220)
Pete LaForest got non-tendered by the Padres.
Post your non-tenders here, c'mon!
   30. Mark Edward Posted: December 20, 2005 at 11:14 PM (#1787228)
Bruce Levine, a radio reporter for the White Sox, says the Sox non-tendered Timo Perez and Willie Harris. This comes from WSI, a Sox fan site.

Harris I'm sad to see go. He's probably not good enough to be a starter, but he should catch on somewhere as a Chone Figgins without the uber-versatility or on-base skills. Timo... well, if the rumor's true, good times.
   31. Bromadrosis Posted: December 20, 2005 at 11:16 PM (#1787235)
Heh, when did LaForest make it over to San Diego?
   32. NTNgod Posted: December 20, 2005 at 11:18 PM (#1787238)
Corey Patterson got a contract offer!
Corey Patterson got a contract offer!

Cubs didn't non-tender anyone.

(I'm going through all the MLB.com sites, trying to find tidbits. Obviously, I've made it up to 'CUBS'. Bluejays tendered all their players, as well, FWIW.)
   33. NTNgod Posted: December 20, 2005 at 11:20 PM (#1787241)
Joe Borowski, who was considered a non-tender candidate for Tampa Bay, was DFA'd to make room for Travis Lee.

Didn't the Padres just trade for Brazelton? Why are they non-tendering him now?

I'd love to find out exactly what contract the Cubs tendered Patterson.
   40. NTNgod Posted: December 20, 2005 at 11:29 PM (#1787262)
I'd love to find out exactly what contract the Cubs tendered Patterson.

I believe it just means they'll hold on to his rights, and unless they reach agreement, they go to arb.
   41. Fred Garvin is dead to Mug Posted: December 20, 2005 at 11:42 PM (#1787270)
I'm confused -- doesn't the contract have to have the club's salary figure in it? What if the player simply wants to accept the club's tender, without arbitrating?

I presumed that the contract had the club's figure, giving the player a choice -- either take it, or go to arbitration and propose your own figure, making the arbitrator pick between the two.
   42. Moses Taylor, Unwavering Optimist Posted: December 20, 2005 at 11:52 PM (#1787277)

Hooray, beer!

Dammit, NTNgod, this is your day. Where are the updates???
   45. NTNgod Posted: December 21, 2005 at 12:14 AM (#1787292)
It is up-to-date (with 4 1/2 hours remaining). All confirmed non-tenders are listed above.
   46. greenback fixes the cable Posted: December 21, 2005 at 12:15 AM (#1787294)
Oh, I know, but can't you make the teams go faster? I want to know if I have to mourn Bo Hart's departure.
   47. Fred Garvin is dead to Mug Posted: December 21, 2005 at 12:18 AM (#1787297)
The Uniform Players Contract provides in Paragraph 10(a):

Unless the Player has exercised his right to become a free agent as set forth in the Basic Agreement, the Club may retain reservation rights over the Player by instructing the Office of the Commissioner to tender to the Player a contract for the term of the next year by including the Player on the Central Tender Letter that the Office of the Commissioner submits to the Players Association on or before December 20 . . .

As for the Central Tender Letter itself (attachment 9 to the Basic Agreement), Article XX(A) of the Basic Agreement describes it:

The Central Tender Letter shall, consistent with Article VI(B) and Article VI(D), include for each Player so tendered the salary or salaries, performance bonuses and/or other terms, if any, offered by the Club. The Central Tender Letter also shall separately list, also by Club, those players who have not been tendered a contract for the term of the next year.

In other words, the club doesn't just send a blank contract; they specify a salary.
   48. NTNgod Posted: December 21, 2005 at 12:28 AM (#1787312)
AP:

In other Mets' news, they offered contracts to their three unsigned players eligible for salary arbitration: right-hander Victor Zambrano, backup catcher Ramon Castro and infielder Chris Woodward.

New York failed to offer contracts to right-hander Tyler Yates and outfielder Wayne Lydon, who become free agents Wednesday. The Mets hope to sign the pair to minor league deals.

   49. Joshemy Posted: December 21, 2005 at 12:34 AM (#1787321)
Nothing shocking from the Mets. I am saddened though that Orber Moreno did get a minor league contract with the O's and won't be in the Mets organization next year.
   50. 1k5v3L Posted: December 21, 2005 at 12:34 AM (#1787324)
I was really hoping the Mets would non-tender Alex Pagan. Damn.

Damn stuck posts.
   54. b Posted: December 21, 2005 at 12:43 AM (#1787339)
Chad Bradford non-tendered...I thought the official reason behind not offering arbitration to Myers was because they didn't want to have both a ROOGY and a LOOGY in the pen.
   55. fracas' hope springs eternal Posted: December 21, 2005 at 12:44 AM (#1787343)
Didn't the Padres just trade for Brazelton? Why are they non-tendering him now?

Apparently Towers wants to prove that Sean Burroughs had no value whatsoever. Funny, considering Towers has been GM for 10 years, and any mistakes he dumps are his own. Seriously, you'd think recasting Burroughs as a utility/bench guy and trading him for a C prospect or a 5th OF would have been possible. Odd.
   56. Darren Posted: December 21, 2005 at 12:44 AM (#1787344)
Surprised Boston couldn't work out something with Miller. You think they could have at least dealt Bradford for something. Guess not.

Twins non-tender ... Balfour

He really shouldn't have written that autobiography.
   59. NTNgod Posted: December 21, 2005 at 12:56 AM (#1787361)
I thought the official reason behind not offering arbitration to Myers was because they didn't want to have both a ROOGY and a LOOGY in the pen.

Such 'Specialists' are an inefficient use of resources that that Epstein guy may have bought into, but this new progressive FO is going to have none of that kind of backward thinking, thank you very much :P

The Red Sox will OOGY no more...
   60. 1k5v3L Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:05 AM (#1787373)
The Red Sox will OOGY no more...

Cameron Diaz's shoes will never be safe, however, as long as Peter Gammons is free.
   61. Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Griffin (Vlad) Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:09 AM (#1787381)
Any word on Balfour's shoulder rehab?
   62. Crispix reaches boiling point with lackluster play Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:09 AM (#1787382)
I would like to echo the questions about why the Padres non-tendered two players they acquired a month ago (Laforêt and Brazelton).
   63. Harold can be a fun sponge Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:17 AM (#1787392)
In other words, the club doesn't just send a blank contract; they specify a salary.

Yes, but that's not necessarily the figure they submit for arbitration. They can tender the minimum, or whatever latest offer they've made in negotiations. Then they continue negotiating, with arb figures coming early next year.
   64. Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Griffin (Vlad) Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:17 AM (#1787394)
Probably traded for 'em to take advantage of the negotiating window, try and get a below-arb deal in place before the deadline.
   65. Harold can be a fun sponge Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:19 AM (#1787398)
Didn't the Padres just trade for Brazelton? Why are they non-tendering him now?

Alderson even said at the time of the trade that they were just hoping to negotiate with Brazelton, and were considering non-tendering him. He admitted that they would have non-tendered Burroughs.

Seriously, you'd think recasting Burroughs as a utility/bench guy and trading him for a C prospect or a 5th OF would have been possible. Odd.

They also got Stephen Andrade in the deal, who's possibly more valuable than a C prospect or 5th OF (but as a Rule 5er, they have to keep him on the big-league squad).
   66. NTNgod Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:20 AM (#1787400)
A's non-tender Hiram Bocachica, keep everybody else.
   67. Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Griffin (Vlad) Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:23 AM (#1787406)
Also, in the case of LaForest, he and Jack Cust are to a certain extent redundant, in that LaForest can't actually catch well enough to hold the position.
   68. Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Griffin (Vlad) Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:24 AM (#1787407)
Oh, and there's Adrian Gonzalez now as well, of course.

Dodgers sign Choi to 1-yr deal, no terms announced.

   70. Bromadrosis Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:33 AM (#1787427)
Don't forget that San Diego also got Steve Andrade in the Burroughs deal. It wasn't a total waste.
   71. Bromadrosis Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:35 AM (#1787430)
Oh, Vinay took care of that.
   72. Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Griffin (Vlad) Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:37 AM (#1787432)
Aw, how thoughtful: Chicago just signed Jacque Jones.
   73. NTNgod Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:46 AM (#1787450)
If things keep up like this, for all those GMs who were talking during the past week about searching the non-tender lists for bargains.... umm, back to the phones, boys - time to hit the trade market again.
   74. DTS Posted: December 21, 2005 at 01:55 AM (#1787462)
A's non-tender Hiram Bocachica, keep everybody else.

I can't believe they'd non-tender Girl Mouth.

This was expected to be a light session - looks that way so far.
   76. Craig in MN Posted: December 21, 2005 at 02:00 AM (#1787469)
Any word on Balfour's shoulder rehab?

I don't think he'll be ready to pitch for a while, but I've also heard that he is ahead of schedule. They might be trying to be intenionally vague, hoping no one picks him up. There's a little blurb from Grant himself on Seth Speaks Twins Blog this week. Judge for yourself:
The arm is doing well! I have started to lift lightly and gaining a lot of strength back now. I am nearly back to normal. I look forward to start throwing off the rebounder in a few weeks and then on my return from Australia, start throwing the ball around again. I am looking forward to getting back into the drills and everything else that goes along with Spring Training.
   77. NTNgod Posted: December 21, 2005 at 02:16 AM (#1787482)
Dodgers sign Choi, non-tender three

...did not tender contracts to catcher Jason Phillips, outfielder Mike Edwards and infielder Brian Myrow.

Actually in this instance, the name would be better translated as "small mouth".

The Brewers have nontendered Dan Kolb and Jeff Bennett
   80. akrasian Posted: December 21, 2005 at 03:11 AM (#1787547)
Is Wade Miller going to be healthy for next year? How extensive was his shoulder surgery?
   81. esseff Posted: December 21, 2005 at 03:36 AM (#1787561)
per AP, Mariners non-tender Ryan Franklin. They did tender Gil Meche.
   82. NTNgod Posted: December 21, 2005 at 03:41 AM (#1787565)
The Seattle Mariners said Tuesday night they wouldn't offer a contract to starting pitcher Ryan Franklin for next season... "It didn't make any sense to tender him," Seattle general manager Bill Bavasi said, adding that the team informed Franklin of its decision Tuesday.

Ouch.

The also non-tendered Jamal Strong should be worth a flyer from a team needing an OF (Yankees).

AP link
   83. Dr. Vaux Posted: December 21, 2005 at 03:41 AM (#1787566)
No, and even if he hadn't had any surgery this winter, the answer would be the same...
   84. Noel Redding Posted: December 21, 2005 at 03:45 AM (#1787571)
Why would the Brewers non-tender Jeff Bennett? He only has a year of service time in. Plus, he wears the bill of his cap perfectly straight, which makes him cool in my book.
   85. NTNgod Posted: December 21, 2005 at 03:49 AM (#1787577)
Why would the Brewers non-tender Jeff Bennett?

To re-sign him to a minor league deal. He was hurt much of last year.
   86. Der Komminsk-sar Posted: December 21, 2005 at 03:55 AM (#1787583)
Mariners non-tendered RHP Cha Seung Baek.
   87. Der Komminsk-sar Posted: December 21, 2005 at 04:04 AM (#1787615)
Oh, that (Baek) was already up top - oops.
Mike Edwards led the Dodgers in innings at third last year - that's ridiculous.

"Actually in this instance, the name would be better translated as 'small mouth'."

As long as it isn't "pretty mouth".

And now, the Craig Breslow minute.
I gotta admit, I'd seen his name before - but I couldn't have told you the first thing about him before a few minutes ago. A little over a year ago, the Pads signed him out of a tryout camp for $1 - prior to that, he'd played Indy ball and in the Brewers system (decent K figures, but not much else). Dude also has a biochem degree from Yale and was considering med school at NYU, so I guess he can fall back on that, if need be. Throws a curve, 85-88 mph fastball, and changeup.

The White Sox seem determined to prolong the agony of certain of their fans: (RR)

The Sox declined to reveal which players weren't tendered contracts by Tuesday's 11 p.m. deadline,

The Trib article does go on to speculate:
but it was expected that outfielder Timo Perez and infielder Willie Harris were among them and would become free agents.

Sonuva.... I checked whitesox.com all day for that?

I'm still trying to find out which of the Devil Rays relievers got non-tendered, so it could be worse.

Pirates play waiting game with contracts

The Pirates were expected to tender contract offers to all six of their arbitration-eligible players -- starters Oliver Perez, Kip Wells and Josh Fogg; reliever Ryan Vogelsong; and outfielders Craig Wilson and Jody Gerut -- before the deadline of midnight last night, but the team will not make that information public until this morning.

[Forgetting] Dave Littlefield.

AHH! My Devil Ray problem has been partially solved.

Devil Rays Come To Terms With Hall

As expected, the Rays bullpen could change dramatically next season as the team non-tendered relievers Joe Borowski, Trever Miller and Lance Carter. However, the Rays then agreed to terms with Carter on a one-year deal worth around $550,000 plus incentives.
...
The Rays had yet to announce the fates of relievers Jesus Colome and Travis Harper, as well as left-handed starters Mark Hendrickson and Casey Fossum.

Screw it, this is good enough for me. I'm adding the White Sox guys.

Although the White Sox did not confirm the moves Tuesday night, a source close to the situation indicated Harris would be non-tendered, along with outfielder Timo Perez and Minor League hurler Felix Diaz. Contracts would be tendered, as expected, to third baseman Joe Crede, pitcher Jon Garland and utility man Rob Mackowiak.

I feel like Paul Konerko, catching the final out of the World Series, knowing it felt like he was out but waiting for the ump's call before celebrating.

Add Junior Spivey to the non-tender list.

For those of you who were breathelessly awaiting Jamey Carroll's status (and who wasn't?), the Nats tendered him a contract offer.
