Wednesday Morning Heads, Slow News Day Edition

Hungry? Why wait! Grab a headline.

(Zambrano, as before, has been covered elsewhere on this site.)

Ramirez, in addition to wanting that Gold Glove, wants people to stop saying he doesn't hustle:


"Sometimes it looks like I don't hustle," Ramirez said with a laugh Tuesday. "I'm just slow."

Ramirez knows he will be scrutinized from the beginning of spring training after the issue became so prominent last year. Though team sources confirmed that former Cubs manager Dusty Baker and the training staff had told Ramirez to "play smart" on the bases to prevent a recurrence of the leg injuries that sidelined him in 2005, new manager Lou Piniella is unlikely to give him any leeway.

To be perfectly honest, though, I'd rather watch a Ramirez who doesn't hustle but has a healthy hamstring over watching a hustling Scott Moore. And Scott Moore isn't bad.

Lee talks about his daughter:

But he also has no idea what direction the disease will go with her and has spent the last five months learning as much as he can about LCA -- and fighting it, in large part through a foundation he created called Project 3000 (named for the estimated 3,000 Americans afflicted).

''There's people in their adult years who can still see -- not 20/20, but they have sight,'' he said, adding that those afflicted suffer from many degrees and variations of the disease. ''They can't say, 'Well, she's going to be this or she'll have that.' ... There's always hope. You always have to have hope.''

Because we need another curse, SI has put us on the cover.

And Soriano comes to terms with the fact that he's an outfielder.
