thats the whole point. the assistant coaches knew this was going on and liked the idea of "toughening him up". Its not a lack of control it is control with pretty poor judgement.

That is a long way off. They should get at least 3-4 years and then have an attractive trading chip if nothing else

Its intentionally stupid - hence the name..

I personally think MLB would have been better off getting a settlement at 50 games for A-Rod with an admission of guilty. Yes they may think he deserves more but now I have to hear about it for the next year as he appeals in courts and whines on TV

The lack of a positive test for most of the players involved with this clinic is an indictment of the poor testing program more than an establishment of innocence.

Ryan Braun, Everth Cabrera, Francisco Cervelli, Nelson Cruz, Yasmani Grandal, Johnny Peralta all these players were linked to the clinic never failed a test but ultimately took settlements. I don't think the arbitrator had much doubt the climic dealt steriods. The only question was did A- Rod use them and what was the appropriate time to be suspeneded if he did.

That's funny

It would make more sense to get a guy who has actually recruited in Texas before
Posted Tuesday December 17, 2013, About: Yanks could land Tanaka, too
How long before the Yankees just buy a Japanese team and use it as a AAA affiliate?

This has to be a low cost platoon option. If not a major mistake. If he plays close to every day I would be very surprised if a DL stint did not come before May.

agree - most of the guys playing the game today grew up with those rules as well
Posted Thursday December 12, 2013, About: Tanaka or bust for the Yankees
Ultimately the rule is going to have to be written so that I catcher has to provide a lane to the plate for the runner whether he has the ball or not. The runner is going to be ruled safe if it is not given. This is going to be messy before it gets better.

This IMHO is about baseball realizing (1) the players have guarranteed contracts and that losing a runner or catcher to injury based on an avoidable play does not make sense and (2) they could receive the same type of lawsuit the NFL received if they do not change the rule.

Could not agree more. Should have landed at least one top prospect (2015 potential Starting Pitcher) and two other B prospects.

I still don't get why he won't play in the CFL - would make so much sense

Ok the team was not great but to say they, "Have not made a lot of up grades as far as getting younger talent" - that is a tall order. One positive - Dominic Brown took a while but came through last year. Plus not many teams can make the transition smoothly.
Posted Thursday December 05, 2013, About: Mets are serious contenders for Curtis Granderson
Could make sense. Mets have the money coming of the books - this is likely to be a 3 or 4 year deal and Mets would be paying for his 33, 34, 35 and potentially 36 years. Having said that i would not be surprised to see the Mets go for more mid tier free agents (Michael Morse and or Corey Hart)

As an Eagles fan it hurts to say this but - Throwing WR's under the bus is not something you would ever see Eli do. It is counterproductive. In private i am sure most QB and WR's go at it but this type of public statements is really bad. Especially if you have a young QB and a veteran WR

Do you really think Castro is worth it? I know he has talent but his head is all over the place. Not a "Cardinal" was we have come to expect.
