BASEBALL

    • The fact that umpire Tom Hallion was fined along with the players in his dustup with the Rays tells you MLB wasn't too happy with the way he handled things . . . especially since the $1,000 fine that Price, who makes $10.11 million, received is like a $7 fine to someone making $75,000 a year.

    • Remember when Roy Oswalt was playing hard to get last winter? Boy, are those days over. (AP)

    • As are the days when K-Rod was a hot item. (NBC's Hardball Talk)

    • But Chase Headley? He's still got them hot on his trail.  (NBC's Hardball Talk)

    • Those of you in need of an A-Rod fix: Rejoice! (AP)
