2) According to the Boston Herald, the Red Sox and Indians have agreed in principle to a trade that would send RF Coco Crisp to the Red Sox for Andy Marte and Guillermo Mota, contingent on the Phillies acquiring another CF, with them working on a deal that would sent Arthur Rhodes or Rafael Betancourt to the Phillies for Jason Michaels. According to the Boston Globe, the Red Sox and Indians have spoken more than 70 times and hope to finish a deal within the week.

The 2006 edition of the sabermetric baseball encyclopedia is available and is now shipping. Also, for the first time, there will be a subscription package available to get the encyclopedia updated every day during the 2006 season. The encyclopedia can be ordered at http://www.baseball-encyclopedia.com

“Lee Sinins’ Sabermetric Encyclopedia is best reason yet developed to own a computer. I think I must own a copy of every baseball encyclopedia there is or ever was, and occasionally I find that I still need to pull out one of the others, but not very often; the Sabermetric Encyclopedia covers 97% of my needs. Whether I’m working or playing, calculating or daydreaming, the Sabermetric Encyclopedia pops up to help out. I turn it on in the morning; I turn it off when the house is on fire. Otherwise, I’m using it.”–Bill James
