(11/09/06) RIVERHEAD - Phone records of a beloved former New York Mets player and manager were introduced as evidence Thursday in the trial of a Hauppauge teen accused of killing his stepfather with a samurai sword.

Prosecutors say Zachary Gibian nearly decapitated Scott Nager in February of 2005 and then called his friend Troy "T.J." Harrelson, son of former Met Bud Harrelson, to help cover up the murder. Phone company representatives took the stand to speak about the phone records, which Suffolk prosecutors believe will help establish a timeline of events. T.J. Harrelson is expected to testify Monday, November 11 when the trial resumes.

Sheffield is being traded to the Tigers for prospects.

And now there's a report that the Red Sox might have submitted the top bid for Matsuzaka, the highly-touted Japanese pitcher.

If true, this would be a slight surprise for me - I didn't think the Sox would be willing to spend that much, but apparently after missing the playoffs last year, anything is possible.

Saw that...Buster Olney broke the story so customary "take it with a grain of salt" disclaimer applies. Matsu looks like the real deal, thoug you never know with guys who've never pitched in the majors before.

Good deal for the Yanks, got some nice young pitching from Detroit for a guy they didn't want/need, though I assume they're now in the market for a 1B so Giambi can be a full-time DH.

I wonder if the Mets would sign Lugo to play 2B for them? If I'm the Mets I stay away from Mark Loretta - good player but will probably get offered more than he's really worth. They'd probably get similar production for much less $$$ by signing Adam Kennedy.

Soriano to Phillies? Interesting, they could sure use another bat behind Howard. I've heard talk of a Pat Burrell-Mike Lowell swap, depending on whether or not Burrell can still play 1B for Boston.

Does anyone think Manny Ramirez will be traded? I really hope not, if he goes David Ortiz won't see a pitch in the strike zone all year

I don't see Manny going anywhere. The Sox just wouldn't get enough back for him, and despite all his antics, you don't give up that kind of bat for nothing.

Yep I'd go with B also. NYY need to add probably a starter (or 2, depending on what happens with Wright & Mussina, and if Pavano can contribute), and I expect them to add a 1B. I read this morning that Texas may make Mark Teixeira available, and they're forever looking for young pitching. I'd love to see Tex in Boston but I could see the Yanks going all out to add him (excellent hitter, plus defender).

SFO's Jason Schmidt to LA Dodgers? that's the talk...and Greg Maddux is thinking of re-upping another year...

LA Angels of Anaheim of Orange County, CA have their sights set on Soriano...Arte Moreno has the money to pull it off; Adam Kennedy was waived and Darren Erstad will come back.

Phils going for Soriano

They badly need these things:
- Pitching
- Manager
- Pitching
- Pitching
- Pitching
- Pitching
- Pitching

And above all else, pitching. Why spend $100 mil on Soriano when you have HUGE holes with pitching?

He would be really scary in that ball park though.

I agree with you though, maybe if they can move burrell and dont have to eat all his contract they will go after a pitcher as well?

Orioles acquired RHP Jaret Wright and cash from the Yankees for RHP Chris Britton.


They must be getting ready to do something......

Looks like Keith Foulke is leaving the Red Sox.

His performance in the 2004 ALCS (as well as the rest of the postseason) is one of the best by a relief pitcher I can remember, and probably led to him blowing out his knees the year after.
