Posted Thursday July 25, 2013, About: Rangers eyeing Rios, OF market taking shape
Texas just needs to improve their starting pitching and pray that Cruz isn't suspended before the season ends.

Exactly! There are very few true "aces" out there. They could probably have Ted Lilly from the Dodgers for a very cheap price...Dodgers eating nearly all of the contract and not getting much trade value in return.

Don't worry Rick. Just read an article saying the Yankees are ready to open their wallets. That short right field porch is waiting for you.

That should read porn STAR, not start.
Posted Friday April 26, 2013, About: Sveum toying with Marmol
Marmol is a term used for a failed porn start...great stuff but unable to perform his task.
Posted Friday April 26, 2013, About: Yankees ready to scrap spending limits
They can start by taking Juan Uribe from the Dodgers.
Posted Wednesday April 24, 2013, About: A's acquire Casper Wells from Blue Jays
Not since the A's signed Manny being Manny Ramirez last year.
Posted Wednesday April 24, 2013, About: Indians shut down veteran righty for two weeks
Maybe he needs some of the "vitamins" Bartolo Colon is taking.
Posted Wednesday April 24, 2013, About: Threat of DL looms over Rockies veteran
Helton's been a class act for so long but it's clearly time to retire. When healthy he's still a decent bat and defender but he's proven that his body is broken down and the best he could hope for is DH duty...which ain't going to happen in the NL (with the exception of road interleague games).
Posted Wednesday April 24, 2013, About: McCourt's $460 million bill for Dodgers sale
How does anyone expect his ex-wife Jamie to survive on only the $131M dollars she got out of the divorce? Poor thing must be living on Top Ramen 3 meals a day.
Posted Monday April 16, 2012, About: Expect to see Pettitte in ...
Agreed! I think Tommy John belongs in there because he had a much better than average career but also because of his willingness to undergo the surgery that would eventually bear his name. Because of this procedure, so many pitchers have received a new life in baseball and the game is much better for it.
Posted Monday April 16, 2012, About: Why the Dodgers won't spend huge
As a Dodgers fan I don't want to see contracts handed out like the Fielder and Pujols deals of the past offseason. I am in favor of putting lots of money into player development as well as re-establishing themselves as leaders in the foreign recruiting market. McCourt cut so much from these core pieces of the franchise because of his and Jamie's pilfering of Dodger money. Kemp got an 8 year deal but he'll still only be 36 when it's done. I'm in favor of locking up Ethier for 6 years as soon as possible and Kershaw for an additional 5-6 years after his contract expires after next season. Other than those core players, build up the farm and let them come in and do the job. There are some decent pitching prospects that are still at least a couple years away but we need more bats.
Posted Friday April 13, 2012, About: Damon's new deal has a Sizemore clause
I'd rather have Damon at first base for the Dodgers instead of Loney.
Posted Friday April 13, 2012, About: Garvey not alone in pursuing the Pads
I'll call that and raise you $50.00
Posted Wednesday April 11, 2012, About: Phillips pleaded with agents to make a deal
Yadier Molina of the Cards is so thrilled to keep seeing his friend Brandon 19 times a year. Bet he was crying as well.
Posted Wednesday April 11, 2012, About: Brewers no longer talking with Greinke's agent
Dear Dodgers: Avoid this head case at all costs!
Posted Wednesday April 11, 2012, About: Twins on target for franchise collapse?
If the Pirates are a model, that model is morbidly anorexic.
Posted Friday April 06, 2012, About: Cubs already on edge
Epstein went into a disaster area and it will take some time to disinfect the place of the rot that was there. It will take a couple or more seasons to rebuild the team and its farm system. That stench in Wrigley is just what's been left over from the past few seasons. Whether Theo and Dale are successful, of course, remains to be seen.
Posted Friday April 06, 2012, About: Reds extending Phillips for $65M?
I hear there are lots of nice homes in that neighborhood.
Posted Thursday April 05, 2012, About: Mets-Yankees gap has never been wider
More like two turds in a paper bag
Posted Tuesday April 03, 2012, About: Inge would accept a trade anywhere
He may be adequate in Japan, otherwise he's toast!
