THT Daily: MLK Dayby Matthew Carruth
January 21, 2008
MLEs - Want to know how Major League Equivalences are created?
Defensive Agreement - Lee Panas has done some interesting work on defense and at least this is a valuable spot to see all of the various defensive metrics listed.
Another One Bites the Dust - Another suitor for Bartolo Colon I mean. The Indians look to be bowing out. No, it's not cooties that Colon has (as far as we know), it's lingering shoulder problems and a set of MRIs that are scaring teams away in droves.
Here Comes Tomko - Another possible suitor for Colon drops out as the Royals ink Brett Tomko to a one-year, $3 million contract.
All but Official - Troy Tulowitzki has agreed with the Rockies on the parameters of a six-year, $30 million contract with a seventh year team option that would buy out Troy's second year of free agency.
Offseason Minutia - Absolutely everything you might want to know about the Dodgers' offseason to this point.
Abandonment of Steps - Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus has a post clarifying the "30-inning Step Rule" for injury concerns surrounding pitchers.
