The article presents information related to baseball. The team Florida Marlins' Carlos Delgado, who signed a four-year, $52 million deal before last season, looks like a bargain and could be a trade target for the losers in the Konerko derby. Look for the team Detroit Tigers to deal disgruntled Ivan Rodriguez and move Brandon Inge back behind the plate. Every manager agrees the free-agent market is weak, which bodes well for 2005 disappointments such as Sammy Sosa, who has no plans to test the Japanese market.
