2/21 Morning Buzz: Tommy Hanson, Manny Ramirez, Mariano Rivera

Top Story:
Hanson in accident, checked for concussion. I can think of better ways for Tommy Hanson to begin his spring than blowing a tire and bumping his head.

Braves Bits:
Capitol Avenue Club - Fifth Starter Out Of Camp.
AJC - Medlen prefers starting.

MLB News:
Athletics - The A's signed Manny Ramirez to a minor league deal. There's nothing you can really hate about this. If it works out, Oakland gets a solid bat for nothing. If it doesn't work out, they lose nothing.
Yankees - The Yankees signed Raul Ibanez for one year at $1.1 million.
Korea - Former Brave Horacio Ramirez signed with the Kia Tigers. Knowing Horacio is 32 years old leaves me wondering where the years went.

MLB Bits:
Yankees - Contemplating the End of the Mariano Rivera Era.
Pirates - A.J. Burnett in a Pittsburgh jersey. He already looked like a pirate anyway.
Angels/Tigers - Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder in their new jerseys. I've felt all along that Pujols seems to fit in Angels gear. Maybe it's just the red I'm used to.
Giants - Giants tell Posey not to block plate this season.
Rockies - Rockies commit to Jim Tracy 'indefinitely' with new deal.
Red Sox - Bobby Valentine on Mike Aviles, Nick Punto and Jose Iglesias.
Mets - Jonathan Niese has a new nose, everybody.
