Last ember in the hot stoveOne scans the wire reports in this line of work, and sometimes the wire reports contain strange things. Like this list of remaining free agents:
BOSTON (5) - Paul Byrd, rhp; Sean Casey, 1b; Curt Schilling, rhp; Mike Timlin, rhp.
I mean, I suppose that's useful on some "I'm the 17th sub-assistant to the Assistant GM and I read everything" level, but I can't exactly feature some major daily newspaper picking this up off the wire and running it.

Not too arcane for me…I went to the link and read the whole list. Why isn’t Odalis Perez there? (or did I miss his name?) I’ve been waiting all year for him to sign!

Byrd isn’t officially retired and IIRC Foulke is pitching in the Atlantic League.
What was the deal with Elarton anyway?

Whitey Ford and Mel Stottlemeyer were at the Old Timers game too.

5? Sean Casey finally broke down and ate someone, didn’t he?
