Looks like things are in the final countdown frenzy with free agents. Lots of players moving from one team to another. Trevor Hoffman is going to Milwaukee, Rocco Baldelli to Boston, and Jason Ellison is leaving the Rangers' organization for a Spring Training invite with the Phillies. John Smoltz is set to sign with the Red Sox while Milton Bradley is waiting on some preliminaries to ink a deal with the Cubs.

This autographed 1989 Donruss card of Ray Hayward was recently involved in a move as well. On January third I sent a 1988 Topps Traded card to Mr. Hayward and asked for his autograph. I got this card back today. I must say that the turn around was super fast. Was it so fast that it morphed the card? Does Ray get so many requests that he mixed up mine and another? Does he buy his own cards, pre-sign them, and then switch them out for a faster turn around? Inquiring minds want to know
