Hu #3.........

*Baseball America has CL Hu ranked as the #3 prospect in the LAD system. Hu was also selected as the best defensive infielder in the Dodgers' system. For a further look into Hu's scouting report, be sure to pick up BA's 2008 Prospect Handbook, which will have an in depth look at quite a few Taiwanese minor leaguers as well as the top 30 prospects for each MLB club. It'll def. make a great stocking-stuffer for the Holidays.

*Chien-Ming Wang who is eligible for arbitration and has stated his desire to remain a Yankee for life, was seeking a long term deal with the Yanks. Wang (MLB experience 3), who is eligible to be a FA after 2011, made $489,500 in 2007.
