including Rich Aurilia, who declined his option for next season.

Also declaring for free agency are Eddie Guardado, Scott Schoeneweis, Todd Hollandsworth and Ryan Franklin. Guardado will be back, I would guess (he has a long road to recovery ahead of him, though), and I wouldn’t mind seeing Schoeneweis return, even if he isn’t really as good as he pitched over the last few weeks (he’s still probably better than most of the rest of that stinking bullpen).
