Walker on next season's plans:
"We looked at how we're going to do spring training, went back to the drawing board. There will be a lot of changes. We took the approach up until now that if it wasn't broke, don't fix it. We had some success here the last few years with that model. Now, Ozzie said, 'I want to do some things different (that) I've always wanted to.' Ozzie is a real street-smart baseball player. Over the last few years, as an offense, we've been more plodding. He's looking forward to implementing his style."
- The Cardinals intend to re-sign David Eckstein? Nice.
- Another Sox prospect will go play on the Hawaii Winter Baseball league. Kannapolis' reliever Kanekoa Texeira will join the Honolulu Sharks.
- "Field of Dreams" was voted the all-time favorite baseball film. "The Natural" came second, and "Bull Durham" third.
- Speaking of offensive style.
