Vazquez agrees to $45 million, four-year contract with Yankees. (Yahoo!)

Royals lead the chase for Juan Gonzalez. They're close to a one-year, $4 million deal. (The Mercury News)

Derek Milhous Zumsteg: "This seemingly brings to the count of better outfielders who signed cheaper deals than Raul [Ibanez] to 42." (U.S.S. Mariner)

Former relief pitcher Tug McGraw dead at 59. (Yahoo!)

Paul Hagen: "The most amazing thing about the amazing life of the amazingly lefthanded Frank Edwin 'Tug' McGraw might just be this: He was beloved by both Phillies and Mets fans. That's a record that might never be broken." (Philadelphia Daily News)

Rose admits he bet on baseball. (San Francisco Chronicle)

David Cameron: "Rose is a scumbag lying weasel who has spent the past 10 years assailing the character of men who were telling the truth. Now, when it interests him financially and potentially leads to reinstatement, he's willing to say he was lying for the past decade and hope that we don't mind. There's absolutely no reason to put Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame, and I hope he never gets to enter Cooperstown, even if he tries to buy a ticket from a scalper." (U.S.S. Mariner)
