Oh, who knows? The latest rumor out of New York is at least more plausible than the last one. Supposedly, Andruw would be traded to the Yankees for Javier Vazquez and a pitching prospect. I don’t really believe this either, and I still think that the Yankees will throw so much money at Beltran that he’ll go there against his better judgment. Anyway, the Braves would then re-sign Drew, move him to center, and sign Jermaine Dye or Richard Hidalgo to play right. Whatever. Everything out of Atlanta says that the Braves intend to keep Andruw, but I’ve been burned before.

Jesse Garcia signed a minor-league deal with San Diego, the same franchise that ended the Lockhart Era. I love the Padres.
