Ben Molina heads to Toronto, but not without some drama first. Plus, Ozzie Guillen's in the news once more, and there's a Rickey Henderson sighting in New York.

"Nobody's a good manager. Nobody. With all due respect, people forgot Joe Torre, he was a losing manager all his life until he got to New York. What's he got? Great players. Phil Jackson, it's a funny thing, we go, 'He's great.' You got Michael Jordan and you got Scottie Pippen … You're not good. You got good players."
--White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, on an HBO appearance on "Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel" (Chicago Tribune)

"He's a cocky kid, like [Carl] Pavano. He'll tell you to go to hell. But I love the kid, I love his competitiveness. A super kid, one of my favorites. I'd be getting on [him], riding him, and sometimes he hated [me]. He might not talk to me for four or five days. But then he started to see the results, and realized that I was trying to do things for him, trying to help him be a 20-game winner."
--former Marlins manager Jack McKeon, on Josh Beckett (Boston Globe)

Ozzie Guillen and Brad Radke have some financial advice, the Royals chime in on revenue sharing, Paul Konerko may decline a promotion, and Theo Epstein is back.

"I don't want to be the guy in the spotlight. That's what people thought I was going to be after we won. People think, 'Oh, Ozzie wins a world championship, he's going to be all over the place, on TV all the time.' I hope this shows people they've got the wrong idea about Ozzie."
--White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, on turning down numerous sponsorship deals in favor of a few select companies (Chicago Tribune)

Theo Epstein rejoins Boston, Kris Benson gets shipped off to Baltimore, the BBWAA awards are handed out, and the Angels head to court over their name.

"I'm back without a trace. You should have changed those stupid locks. Now I'm back without a trace. Who sings it? Is it Gloria Gaynor? You weren't surprised, were you?"
--Toronto GM J.P. Ricciardi, on the return of Theo Epstein to the Red Sox (Boston Herald)

Bruce Sutter and Goose Gossage sound off about the Hall of Fame vote, Darryl Strawberry gets contemplative, Kevin Millar thinks he's not very good, and Houston tries to get out from under Jeff Bagwell's contract.

"My sons remember me most as a Cardinal. My one son is 26 years old and I don't think he's ever seen me without a beard. It's not as black as it used to be, but it's still there."
--newest HOF inductee Bruce Sutter, on wearing a Cardinals hat on his HOF plaque (MLB.com)

It's an all-employment issue of The Week in Quotes, as Jose Lima's still looking for a job, Miguel Tejada and Manny Ramirez may be after a transfer, and Theo Epstein might be back to reclaim his old job.

"There will be no trade. I'm staying in Boston, where I'm familiar with the system and where I have a lot of friends, especially David Ortiz."
--Red Sox left fielder Manny Ramirez, on how his desire to leave Boston is gone (MLB.com)

We kick off the new year with some response to the Johnny Damon defection, the Matt Lawton positive test, rumblings in the AL East, and more.

"It's just disappointing, man--it seems like the fricking wheels are falling off. Personally, I want to stay with the Red Sox but this could mean that I'm the pitcher who would have to go to another team if they need another center fielder. I'm just hoping we can get (outfielder) Dave Roberts (of San Diego) for David Wells to alleviate that."
--Red Sox pitcher Bronson Arroyo, after Johnny Damon signed with the Yankees (Boston Herald)

It's time to relive the 2005 season with the year's zaniest quotations as our guide.

"I don't think they have the team to go to the World Series now."
--Magglio Ordonez, on his old team, the White Sox (Chicago Sun-Times)

DO YOU THINK MY BEING STRONGER OR FASTER HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH MUSCLES IN THIS PLACE?

A.J. Pierzynski gets in the ring, it's not Tony Womack's fault, Joe Mauer struts his stuff, and the Commish is proud of a few things.

"I never said I wanted to be traded. I said I want to see a better team. I don't want to keep losing like we have the past two years."
--Orioles shortstop Miguel Tejada, clarifying a report that he had asked to be traded (MLB.com)

Anonymity rules at the Winter Meetings, a few GMs self-diagnose, and everyone reacts to the trades and free agent signings around the league.

"In every trade proposal, he's asking for the other general manager's first born, plus two pitchers."
--an MLB executive, on new Rangers GM Jon Daniels, who reportedly overvalued his players when negotiating trades (FoxSports.com)

Florida newspapers were hopping this week with continued coverage of the fire sale redux, plus some not-so-nice words about the hunt for a new stadium. Also: Billy Wagner burns the bridge to Philadelphia, and the Mets may trade the Bensons.

"The Mets are trying to win a World Series. I felt like this was the right place to be."
--new Mets closer Billy Wagner, who signed a 4-year, $43 million contract (Philadelphia Inquirer)

It's the time of year where teams look to fill GM vacancies, which means it's Dave Stewart time. Also: Kevin Millar comments on the breakup of The Idiots, Neifi Perez has more job security than both Paul Konerko and Frank Thomas, and Doug Melvin has some ideas to make the game fairer.

"I don't think (the chances) are very good because they haven't spoken to me about anything. The ball's in their court, but maybe they just want to replace me or go in another direction. I realize we're in a position where people think we need to change. It started to happen in May, when we brought in (John) Olerud. That's part of the business."
--Red Sox first baseman Kevin Millar, on his impending free agency and the dismantling of The Idiots (Boston Herald)
