White Sox To Pass On Bonds, Pedro

6:22pm: Jon Heyman of SI.com chimes in via Twitter, saying he hears "no dice on Pedro and Chisox." Heyman does suggest some team should be interested in Pedro. 

9:04am: Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times was wondering yesterday whether a couple of free agents might be able to help the White Sox.

DH Jim Thome has been bothered here and there by a heel injury, though he played in the last two games.  Cowley asked GM Ken Williams if Barry Bonds would be Plan B if the heel injury worsened, and Williams emailed back, "No."

Cowley quizzed manager Ozzie Guillen about Pedro Martinez, who would conceivably become the team's fifth starter if Jose Contreras is booted.  Ozzie's answer left the door just barely ajar:

"Pedro Martinez was mentioned in spring training, but just because a couple of his friends called me, and my job is to give Kenny the information.  But that's it, no, Pedro, no, not right now. I don't know if we're going to because that's Kenny's decision, but right now that's not on my mind.''

According to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, top pitching prospect Aaron Poreda is not an immediate candidate if Contreras falters Thursday.

Barry Bonds Refuses To Retire

Barry Bonds attended last night's Giants game, and provided his typical nonsensical comments.  Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News has a transcript.  Baggarly learned that Bonds is not retired, and his offseason injury was related to his quad rather than his hip.

Baseball Blogs Weigh In: Bay, Dodgers, Draft

On this date eight years ago, Barry Bonds hit his 500th career home run and on this date three years ago, Pedro Martinez won his 200th game. Both players are likely headed to Cooperstown, neither player has retired and yet both players are without a team. As we wrap up the second week of the '09 season, let's take a look at what is being written in the Blogosphere...

  • Surviving Grady fancies the Red Sox new Canadian import, Jason Bay, who is helping Bostonians forget all about...what was his name?
  • UmpBump puts together an impressive roster of players Ned Colletti "gave up on."
  • The Ghost of Moonlight Graham shows that history does not favor pitchers taken with the top pick of the draft. In fact, they also show that of the best pitchers acquired via the draft in the last 20 years, only Dwight Gooden was drafted in the first five picks.
  • Jorge Says No puts together a roster of the worst free agent contracts of the last five years.
  • Feeling Dodger Blue looks at the Dodgers' most recent top picks, both pitchers, and both appear to finally be healthy.
