Carlos Silva Trims Down

So word out of the M's luncheon today is that Carlos Silva has lost some weight. More than 20 lbs, according to trainer Rick Griffin - who himself probably weighs about 97 lbs., so you can understand why he thinks that's significant.

Looking at that pic - that only leaves about another 100 lbs. to get him down to playing weight.

I'll believe it when I see it, fat boy.

M's hire Woody Woodward

No, that's not a mistake. The very same Woody Woodward that set the organization back to the post-Pilot era with all the moves I don't care to re-hash here. They've hired him to scout - concentrating on the southeast.

My hope is they're actually talking about southeast Asia, unbeknownst to Woody, and they station him in freaking Laos where he can assemble the most bad-ass Laotian minor league squad and drive the team bus between Thailand and Myannmar looking for raw talent.

Oh, and I hope he gets a nasty case of the runs and gonorrhea while he's there. Yeah, that's for Lowe and Varitek, Woody. You're welcome.
