Sports fans we are Just about ten days away from pitchers and catchers annual migration south, to report to Spring Training. Yet some big names remain on Obama's unemployed list. Still some clubs have failed to address their off season worries. Now that all the pig skin fun is behind us, it's time for GMs and agents to get busy.
Who's Still Available
Bronson Arroyo - The veteran right hander is surprisingly still on the market. He has been rumored to be talking with several clubs, however it appears Arizona might be his next team. The Diamondbacks appear ready to offer Arroyo a multi year deal, which is what, he has been seeking.
Stephen Drew - It seems to be Drew's pick. Boston or New York. Both NY teams would love to have him and so would the Sox.
Paul Maholm - The 31 year old lefty started 26 games last season for Atlanta, winning 10 of them Health concerns have scared suitors away as Maholm is seeking a more than a one year deal. Don't be surprised to see Maholm return to the Braves for one more year.
Nelson Cruz - It's true the Yankees, Tigers, Nationals and Rangers are among the many who would like to have Cruz's bat in the lineup this spring. Yet who is going to take the chance and put up the dough for the 33 year old fresh off a 50 game performance enhancing drugs suspension.
A.J. Burnett - A big part of the Pirates 2013 run, was their pitching. Burnett certainly did his fair share winning 10 games with an ERA of just 3.30. Now 37 A.J. can provide a club, a solid back end of the rotation 25 start kind of guy. The Diamondbacks have also been in discussions with Burnett
