About a week ago, I read that FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal said Paul Lo Duca was as good as gone. Today, Omar Minaya told the AP that he was "optimistic" about re-signing him.
I guess this is what the Hot Stove season is all about. Words going one way one day, then going another way the next. You can't really trust much of what you hear until it's made official.
We've already locked up Moises Alou, Damion Easley, and Marlon Anderson for next season, and this is another re-signing I would like to see put behind us, because I just don't see any worthwhile upgrades at the position.
