Posted Monday December 10, 2012, About: Shields: 'Definitely a sad day'
What a horrible move for Kc! They lose the best hitting prospect & their #1 pitching prospect who they'd have locked up for 6 years for a guy who had 2 good years in the bigs?

I thought the royals looked promising w a young talented lineup & developing pitching but Madden strikes again. How does that weasel do it?

Who ever was scouting Nishi- forshame! This guy has the weakest arm I've ever seen from a major leaguer. True, he's getting overpowered at the plate, but a good hitter can change his bat speed/timing.

Keep looking for a 2b Twinkies, maybe our <good-for-nothin> scouts will find someone eventually.

Oh you simple minded fool! The Rays wont be trading the only good hitter on their team, especially not the face of the franchise.

Segura's a big loss- a decent all around player who'd be an upgrade over Aybar or Izturis. They already have Weaver, Wilson & Haren (if he can find the strikezone). I know everyone says pitching wins but do the angels have enough cap space to resign him?
Posted Sunday July 22, 2012, About: Even Morneau's on the block in Minnesota
<cough> Garza & Ortiz come to mind. Trading Johan for essentially nobody & Ramos for Capps. I could go on but my Twinkies have made a lot of bad decisions.

Span will go 1st probably to Washington, they're looking for a CF that could lead off. We need to move Liriano now if we're gonna get any value. And as much as I love Morneau, he's gotta go. He hasn't been the same since his concussion- his approach to lefties is awful.

I gotta feeling we're goin to be cellar dwellers for a while. 90's here we come!
Posted Tuesday July 17, 2012, About: Bourjos wants to stay an Angel
My Twins have arms in the minors? I'll have some of what ur smoking.

The angels wont trade Bourjous. Wells & Hunter will be FA next season so I suspect the halos to move one of them though they'll have to eat most of their contract. That'll lower their payroll so they can get Shields or Garza and retain them for a few yrs.
Posted Saturday July 14, 2012, About: Greinke back in Kansas City?
They already have Wilson, Weaver and Haren along with Hunter & Wells making $45M/ season. You cant forget about Pujols either. Where's the money gonna come from?

Greinke wont go to KC. They just cant spend the kinda $ he's gonna be looking for. How about St. Louis? Losing Pujols they didnt do much in the off-season to diminish that loss.
Posted Saturday July 14, 2012, About: Nats pitching coach wants fewer Ks
It's cuz of this damned pitch count that everyone's obsessed with. It doesnt show you how pitchers are doing. Some of the best were out there throwing 120+ pitches per outing and 300 innings a year.

Let them pitch to their strengths. If a guy can make'm look silly do it. If ur a groundball pitcher, induce those. You got to dance with you brung ya.
Posted Sunday July 08, 2012, About: Source: Orioles 'going hard' after Greinke
I concur. It's gonna take a big package for the O's to acquire Greinke. They're in rebuilding mode & it doesnt make sense for them to trade for a guy that's gonna b a FA @ the end of the yr.

Plus does anyone really expect them to stick around? Probably just a case of building interest before the deadline.

The Pohlads are gonna reach into their pockets? Their hands must be cold.

Whataya mean? I thought that's why u signed Ibanez?

Posted Sunday June 03, 2012, About: Cubs likely to pursue Cuban free agent
REBUILD. Big Z's contract will be off the books next year and Soriano's has to be almost up. Chicago's one of the wealthiest cities in the nation and they have a young CF with a lot of potential. If they can add a few top prospects, in a couple yrs they'll look good- Tampa & Washington a few examples.
Posted Sunday June 03, 2012, About: Sveum denies Castro trade rumors
Pure speculation. Sure, they may listen to talks for Castro but he's not going anywhere. Epstein's no ordinary dumbie- he wont trade one of the best SS in baseball.

Now talks about trading Dempster & Garza are true. Trade talks for Garza started last year, but Dempster will be 1st out the door.
Posted Wednesday May 02, 2012, About: The great unknown in Philly
Dont pay any attention to what alacran says- most of what he writes is crap. But I expect Hamels to be dealt this season- too many injuries and they have a depleted minor league system.
Posted Tuesday April 24, 2012, About: Liriano caught moping, bullpen next?
Location, location, location. He flies open too quickly, and cant maintain a good release point. Watch him- he's lookin @ 3b when he releases, then pirouettes. If he cant locate his fastball, then his slider is useless. He's always had great stuff- just loses control & therefore confidence.

He'll be gone before the season's over- shoulda traded him sooner.
Posted Saturday April 14, 2012, About: C.J. Wilson: Rangers 'wasted' his time
"If I was able to make a decision in early November, then that would have been a lot easier for me."

Like u would've started baseball activities that early anyway? $87M is plenty to do whatever Fun things u wanna do after u win the WS.
Posted Tuesday April 03, 2012, About: Struggling Zito left behind in Arizona
Exactly, they take a chance on signing someone young & lock them up for a few years. They've been fortunate that their talent hasnt held out for a bigger paycheck. They're obviously doin something right.
Posted Monday March 05, 2012, About: Gardenhire isn't sure about Liriano, either
Thank you.

Chisox wipe the egg out of your eyes. At least we've got a shot this year.
Posted Friday March 02, 2012, About: Good news, Mets fans: No red flags with Santana
I'd like to think he's ready to go, he was ready last Sept but they shut him down. 18 months of recovery lets play some ball!
Posted Friday March 02, 2012, About: Teen turning heads at Cards camp
La-ti-dah. Shelby Miller is their top pitching prospect & they dont have room for him in their rotation. Why should we care about a teenage kid who's gonna need seasoning?

Molina got overpaid. Decent bat but they are paying him for his glove.
