Tribe almost had 'The Cat'

Before reaching terms with free-agent outfielder David Dellucci, the Indians thought they had a deal with Frank Catalanotto, only to get trumped by the Rangers' last-minute offer. Dellucci, 33, offers more power than Catalanotto, 32, and is a better defender. Catalanotto is a better contact hitter and would have fit nicely as the Indians' No. 2 hitter.
The Diamondbacks, Padres, Giants, Rangers and Indians are believed to be among the teams interested in free-agent left-hander Mark Mulder, who had season-ending shoulder surgery in August and isn't expected to be ready by the start of the season. The Diamondbacks would benefit from adding Mulder to a rotation that already includes Brandon Webb, Livan Hernandez and Doug Davis. Ditto for the Padres, who could add Mulder to Jake Peavy, Chris Young, Clay Hensley — and maybe Greg Maddux



now that sucks

Catalanotto can play LF, RF and 2nd base he's a better AVG hitter and has great on base skills and hardly strikes out (.376OBP 52BB/37K)
