If you're looking to shed the injury-prone label, a good initial step would be to make it through your first practice without hurting yourself. Beanie Wells failed in the attempt. [Arizona Republic]

Over at THT, Sean Smith makes the Hall of Fame argument on Ichiro's(notes) behalf. Honestly, if the Hall were to exclude Ichiro, then, well...it would just be one more reason not to visit the Hall of Fame. Money quote: "What I see here is the lack of a clearly defined aging pattern. Ichiro’s skills, and the magnitude of his play, appear to be the same at age 20 as they were at age 27, and remain so at age 35. He is the timeless warrior." Other timeless warriors: Sgt. Slaughter, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jack Lambert, the dog that ate part of Kyle Farnsworth. [The Hardball Times]

Fake Teams asks you to vote on the rumored LA-San Diego deal that didn't happen. I can't believe the race is so close. The Padres front office staff must have quite a get-out-the-vote effort. [Fake Teams]

Dave Cameron promotes Tom Tango's MLB payroll study. Depressing/obvious: The Royals stink, don't spend well. [The Wall Street Journal]

There's a four-page (and counting) LaDainian Tomlinson debate raging over at the Cafe. Many are bullish, not unlike Funston. [Fantasy Football Cafe]

You'd think that Bryant Johnson would just walk the course, hire a caddy. [Shutdown Corner]

Doc offers hope to Ronnie Brown drafters, including a projection. Here's the essential question: "Who else are you going to draft with 2,000 total yard upside and an ADP of 28?" [Razzball]

They're basically all Neftali Feliz(notes) all the time over at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The circumstances of the call-up aren't ideal for fantasy purposes -- Feliz will pitch in relief, not closing -- but if you're in a holds league, it's worth noting that he's eligible at SP. [Foul Territory]

Understandably, a Kevin Gregg(notes) discussion has broken out on NSBB.com. It's tough to believe that anyone is in favor of letting Gregg continue in his current role (designated blower of saves), but some are. More on that subject later in Closing Thoughts. [North Side Baseball]
