Around the League; February 29, 2008

Time for today's roundup, on this extra day that is brought to you by 'leap year', 'adding an extra day to your year, every four years'.
  • Today's Spring Training scores: Bal 7 FLA 5; CLE 3 HOU 4; DET 3 TOR 1; FLA 4 WSH 1; LAD 3 ATL 10; PHI 5 PIT 4; TB 7 CIN 6; STL 5 NYM 4; LAA 3 TEX 2; CWS 7 ARI 5; KC 13 SD 9; MIL 4 OAK 11; SF 8 CHC 6; BOS 8 MIN 3.
  •'s Jon Heyman is reporting that the Tigers, I almost typed Marlins, have begun to talk to Miguel Cabrera about an extension. No numbers or amounts are known.
  • Royals GM Dayton Moore denies interest in Sosa, saying that his team is not interested in acquiring any free agents as of right now. Too bad for Sammy. He got his 600 HR's so can't he retire now?
  • Jeff Zrebiec and Roch Kubatko of the Baltimore Sun are on top of the Brian Roberts situation. The Cubs had a pair of scouts watching Roberts play yesterday. The Orioles are asking for Ronny Cedeno and Sean Gallagher, and maybe Jose Ceda or Donald Veal as a third player. A fourth player may be discussed.
  • To top this off, just reminding you readers that Mariners Central has a new email set up, so feel free to drop me a line at marinerscentral"at" Feel free to send me your thoughts, and basically anything Mariners, or pretty much baseball.
    Sidenote: Sorry but I didn't know if I should link the email or not, so you may have to do some copy and pasting.
