Odds And Ends: Punto, Lidge, Mandel

Two more things to post before I call it a night. Be sure to keep with the threads below this, including the ongoing Mark DeRosa trade talk thread:

  • The Phillies met with Nick Punto twice today, according to

Punto said if he can’t return to the Twins, he’d like to join the Phillies. That would absolutely open possibilities for Jason Donald.

  • I wrote this in the comments, but I’ll put it here: It seems beat writer Ken Mandel was laid off today:

Among the employees let go was’s reporter who covered the World Series champion Philadelphia Phillies. Bowman said he will be replaced.

All the best to Mandel.
