Roch Around the Clock


The Kickoff

December 14, 2006|By ROCH KUBATKO

The Mets non-tendered pitcher Victor "Someone please confuse me with Carlos" Zambrano.

Yeah, that Scott Kazmir trade looks better and better every day.

Nice effort by Braves general manager John Schuerholz, trying to trade Marcus Giles at the winter meetings. Good thing nobody fell for it.

The Orioles never targeted Giles. They wanted Adam LaRoche. Giles would have been a one-year rental - and a pretty unpopular choice to replace Brian Roberts.

Japanese pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka is headed to Boston, so the two sides have reached an agreement.

When Matsuzaka requested headphones for the flight, the airline told him they would cost $51 million.
