Update: It’s no secret Boston has dangled Rajon Rondo league-wide and while the asking price is steep, he has piqued the interest of Toronto’s front office, according to multiple sources.
The Celtics are reportedly asking for two unprotected first round picks, at least one young stud in the making, and all the nachos they can eat for a lifetime. Ok well maybe not the last one, but the Celtics are in a position to drive a hard bargain since they are not forced to move Rondo for he is under contract through next season. Reportedly the Kings had proposed an offer that the Celtics liked, but Rondo would not commit to resigning with Sacramento, so the deal has been nixed. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Aaron Harang won't pitch Wednesday as he's working on some mechanical issues.
It should be interesting to see the results of these tweaks. Harang's season last year was nothing short of surprising as he posted a career-best 3,57 ERA. His lost a little off his K/BB ratio, but overall, the season was a big success for him. Can he maintain it? It's going to be tough in a park like Philly's and a ground ball rate below 40-percent. He's not going to be someone to draft, but keep an eye on his early and maybe think about adding him early if he has a nice run to open the season. Analysis: Howard Bender
