7) White Sox P Damaso Marte will have his sore neck examined.

Manager Ozzie Guillen says he’s headed for the DL. So, either it is serious enough that Marte will have to go on the 60 day DL or Guillen forgot that there is no need for the 15 day DL during the time of 40 man rosters. And the only way the former makes sense is if the White Sox have someone who is not on the 40 man roster when they would consider adding to replace Marte, but would otherwise continue to keep him off.

The next edition of the sabermetric baseball encyclopedia, which will include the 2005 statistics, is now available to be preordered in many of the packages in my ebay store. The store consists of more than 200 baseball books, magazines, DVDs, cards and yearbooks and more are added each day.

The ones that say encyclopedia with 2005 stats in the 2nd line are the ones that include the preorder of the next edition. There are (and will be for a little while) packages there that have not yet been amended to include the new edition. If you are interested in any of them, please contact me and I’ll get that one amended for you.
