- The Braves acquired Derrek Lee from the Cubs for 3 pitching prospects. None of those pitchers is considered a top prospect. Lee, will fill in for Troy Glaus , who will head to the DL. Lee is a great defensive 1st baseman, but he has had a down year with the stick. Decent pickup for the Braves, but I feel the Phillies will catch them.
- The Rockies are on the verge of releasing outfielder Brad Hawpe. Hawpe has had an awful year, but a contender will jump on him. Texas, San Francisco, St. Louis, and Boston come to mind as teams that may seek his services.
- BYU is leaving the Mountain West for football. They plan to be an independent, and have their games broadcast on BYU-TV. Their plan is to spread Mormonism through this network, which already reaches 80 million homes. I will boycott watching their games, since the Mormon's will try to brainwash us. The Mountain West plans to invite Fresno St. and Nevada to join the conference.
