Innings Limits for Joba and Phil: Ben Kabak of River Ave. Blues pointed out a snippet that I missed in Chad Jennings post about Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes: Brian Cashman told him that the duo would not have significant innings limits. They've paid their dues and this flexibility can only be a good thing for both the rotation and the pen.

Arn Tellem for Matsui '10: Hideki Matsui's agent, Arn Tellem, has taken to the Huffington Post to extol the virtues of the great slugger from Japan. I think it's a generally agreeable piece. I love Matsui. I don't know that I'd call him an "ageless talent," but he's a great player and a guy that you can't really help but root for. Via Ben again.

Sabathia and Halladay?: Jon Heyman of, without offering a source, says that the Yankees will ask about Roy Halladay. This comes after new Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos said that he'd be open to trading within the division. Via (who else?) Ben.
