Pettite, we knew about already. Barrett, that's a bit of a surprise, as I thought someone would get desperate for a catcher and throw him some cash...

Loretta, wow. He had 2 offers on the table and gave them up to go back to Houston with no promise of playing time, and Matsui/Everett taking both starting spots. Gotta congratulate the guy, not going just for the cash. Plus he's a class act too.

Now Burke is sure to be traded, just not to the Sox, please...
