Albert Pujols's Mystery Destination, Dale Sveum's New Gig, And Other Hot Fucking Stove Developments

Your roundup of all the hottest hot-stove items of the day (and whatever shit Ken Rosenthal is throwing against the wall). This is ... HOT FUCKING STOVE!!!

• There's apparently a mystery team involved in the bidding for Albert Pujols, much like there was for Cliff Lee. Speculation is that it could be the Cubs or Rangers, though another report says it could be the Orioles. The Cardinals still remain the overwhelming favorites, one report says are they could announce a deal as soon as tomorrow.

• The Dodgers starting pitching options are really, really sad.

• The Brewers have no idea who their shortstop is going to be next season, though it probably won't be Jose Reyes.

• The Martin Prado-for-Delmon Young rumor is picking up a lot of steam, but don't tell Atlanta.

• Ken Rosenthal throws some shit against the wall.

• Dale Sveum will indeed manage a historic franchise known as much for its decades-long title drought as its off-field exploits. We just happened to pick the wrong one.
