Fire KW.com would be just as good, who owns that?

Is it likely they bought all the "fire(your manager here) dot com" domains?

They don't own fireozzieguillen.com or fireozzie.com. Nor do they own firejimhendry.com, firetheoepstein.com, or firebriancashman.com. Seems odd that they specifically bought the KW related ones. I wonder what prompted it.

Mmm, they've been watching the off-season unfold?

They bought it in April of last year. I guess someone figured the 2006 offseason wasn't promising either.

Haven't checked the Whois myself, but according to the blog comments MLB owns that as well.

Well, I checked a couple of the ones you listed and it seems like someone just beat them to the punch. They might have only started doing this in April of 2007. If someone bought those other domains before there's not much they can do about it.

I noticed that a prominent WSI poster appears as one of the people who posted a comment on the link you provided.

Could be, and I wonder if this is MLB's belated attempt to get control over what could be an otherwise negative, fairly public forum.

I think MLB could offer to buy them. Perhaps someone is buying these domain names with just such a hope.
