Around the League: March 31, 2008

Time for what's gone on in the MLB today.
  • The Jays and Alex Rios are closer today to an agreement on a long-term extension than they were yesterday. The Jays are believed to have a six year offer worth $65M, which would buy out two arbitration years, and four years of free agency. It was also said that Sunday (today) was the Jays deadline for an extension. They'd resume talkes at the end of the season.
  • The Orioles released Jay Gibbons today. They swallow the $11.9M in remaining salary. Gibbons is facing a 15 game suspension for steriod related problems, but it's believed that the ban will be lifted. How, I don't know.
  • The Daily News LA says that Francisco Rodriduez won't negotiate a contract extension with the Angels during the season. He will be a free agent this coming winter. Not winter right now, but next winter. If Sum-, Spring ever comes.
  • A REAL baseball score to pass along. ATL 2 WSH 3.
