Like most teams, the Rockies issued a statement on the Mitchell Report. Fully support the investigation, eliminate the use of PEDs, cooperative effort from all sides. What else would you expect them to say?
Matt Herges and his agent wouldn't return calls, though his agent said Herges "was not going to issue a statement at this time." No comment or deny, deny, deny would appear to be S.O.P. for many of the guys listed in the Report.
The Astros contacted Mark Prior's agent on Thursday. Prior'll miss a few months in 2008 to be fully healed from shoulder surgery, but a bidding war appears likely for his services. Maybe the Yankees want to correct their mistake from 1998.
Club officials met with Casey Weathers in Nashville during the winter meetings. Good to see Weathers finish his degree at Vanderbilt, though making mechanical adjustments sound just as good.
