The murmurs of Heath Bell getting traded to another team by July are getting louder. (BTW, I love the word murmurs. I really wanted the survivors on Lost to call The Others, The Murmurs. Wouldn’t that have been awesome?! Okay, maybe me.) Prepare for a dozen or so posts titled, “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” at some of our weak sister sites.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Since our last check up no games have been played, but there was movement on the closer rankings. Was it February Grey getting bored and mixing things up?

Kelvim Escobar was sent to the bullpen. His value goes from potentially good to potentially nothing. Scioscia said Escobar will be pitching out of the bullpen for the rest of the season.

I’m in a bunch of leagues because I’m popular and smart. Feathered hair is coming back! It is? Yes, Grey said so! This fantasy baseball league is being hosted by RotoRob. (NOTE: It’s not RotorOB, RotOrOB or roTOROb.) After the pretty picture of my fantasy baseball team, I share with you never-before-seen thoughts I jotted down during the draft.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Back in early November, I said, “Gregg, Cubs Closer?” Well, remove the question mark and call me Nostradumbass. It’s not surprising at all to me that Marmol’s not going to be the closer to start the season. There’s no reason in debating whether Piniella made the right decision.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Alas, for now the Rays are Price-less. (To recall a conversation I once had with my grandmother after she threw out my 1986 Sportsflic Jose Canseco rookie card, “That card was priceless!” “Yeah, because it wasn’t worth shit.”) Frankly, I’m surprised the Rays sent David Price down.Please, blog, may I have some more?
