The Outside Corner:
The Movember MLB Mustache Madness is starting to get serious as we move on to the regional semi-finals. Gone are all the pretenders to the mustachioed throne as only the best of the best remain. Starting off the current players bracket semi-finals is a battery of under nose brooms that any man would envy.
The tournament's #1 overall seed just has it to easy. He made short work of Clay Zavada in the first round before absolutely stomping all over Carl Pavano in the second round. Will his dominance continue or has he finally met a worth challenger?
It was Miller Time almost all the time as Corky more than doubled up on the opposition of Juan Pierre. But with John Axford standing in his way, it might soon be time for Corky and his 'stache to make his exit from our bracket.
Time to vote! (one vote per matchup per day)

Nyjer Morgan—or his alter-ego Tony Plush, depending on your take—is a tremendous weirdo. He flies kites when he gets prompted by his Twitter followers. He gives interviews in character. He might actually be a little bit insane. And to add to the tally: he appears to be a legitimate fan of the Twilight series. More »
The world of Major League Baseball comes to Milwaukee this week as general managers and ownership groups, plus an expected influx of agents, convene for three days of meetings at The Pfister beginning Tuesday.
Though it's a bit early for a slew of player moves, the general managers' meetings often get the ball rolling for deals to be completed at baseball's winter meetings...

MILWAUKEE Brewers manager Ron Roenicke will be without one of his favorite players next season after veteran outfielder Mark Kotsay signed Monday with the San Diego Padres.
Kotsay, 35, hit .270 for the Brewers last season, appearing in 104 games and starting 50. He played all three outfield positions and also got limited action at first...

Mark Kotsay's hometown Padres have reportedly lured the veteran outfielder back to the West Coast. FoxSports.com cited sources Tuesday in reporting that Kotsay and the Padres had reached an agreement on a $1.25 million, one-year contract.

The Brewers have no plans to add intrigue to their hometown General Managers Meetings by extending a first offer to free-agent slugger Prince Fielder.
News and rumors from MLB's GM/owners meetings at the Pfister Hotel.
This week's GM meetings are being held in Milwaukee, so let's round up some news from the local team...
GM Doug Melvin confirmed to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy that they will not extend an offer to Prince Fielder during this week's GM meetings. “We won’t do that here,” said Melvin, who is open to meeting with Fielder's agent, Scott Boras.
Nyjer Morgan, aka Tony Plush, is officially on the Milwaukee Brewers.
When it comes to the Twilight series though, the most interesting man in all of professional sports leaves no doubt as to who's team he's on. Spoiler alert: he's not the world's biggest Robert Pattinson fan, at least according to his Twitter account.
This afternoon, Jon Heyman sent out the following message on Twitter:
#Mariners are hoping to be in on Prince (but not Pujols). Unsure if there’s room in budget though. But will give it a run.
As Jeff noted in more depth than I’ll get into, this is basically not news – it’s pretty clear that there are a lot of prices up to which the M’s would happily sign Prince Fielder...
The annual meetings of major league baseball general managers don't officially begin until Tuesday, but that didn't stop the Milwaukee's Doug Melvin from getting a head start with a lunch meeting with agent Paul Kinzer, who represents free-agent third baseman Aramis Ramirez and shortstop Rafael Furcal.
