Hot Stove Heating Up

Lots of deals being done already.

"Everyday" Scott Proctor signed a minor league deal with the Braves. He spent last season on the DL (Tommy John surgery). (And judging from the photo, he's adopted the "fell chin first into a mud puddle" type of facial hair.)

Remember...was it three or four years ago? When Scott Proctor learned that new breaking ball from Al Leiter, and everyone thought he was going to be an elite closer. Cashman's phone was ringing off the hook.

Wilson Betemit will sign a minor league deal with the Royals.

The Tuscaloosa News has a blurb about that Baseball Country baseball camp.

Baseball Country will hold a series of Professional Advanced Camps on Jan. 1-3 for ages 7-10) and Jan. 8-10 for ages 11-14. Professional instructors will include Andy Phillips ( Hiroshima Carps), Lance Cormier (Tampa Bay Rays), Brett Taft (former Kansas City Royal) and Lee Evans (Former Atlanta Brave). Campers will receive instruction on hitting mechanics, catching techniques, proper infield play and pitching mechanics. Camps are limited to the first 20 that register. Cost is $345. You may register by going on line at or call Kenny Burns at 205-454-3641.

Interesting that Andy Phillips is described as playing for the "Hiroshima Carps." Does that mean he's going back to Japan next season?

Carps? Is it Grammar Nazi Time?

The Carp announced today that they signed Justin Huber and would not renew Phillips' contract.

It's not clear at this point that Marty Brown wants Andy at his new place, or any other NPB clubs for that matter.
