Baseball Blogs Weigh In: Berkman, Dunn, Dodgers

On this date two years ago, Ichiro Suzuki picked up his 3,000th career hit with a first inning single against the Rangers. The hit was his 1,722nd in the big leagues, which came after he racked up 1,278 hits with the Orix Blue Wave in Japan's Pacific League. Including the postseason, the 36-year-old Ichiro has 3,456 career base hits to his credit, a staggering number no matter how you look at it.

I would argue that 4-9 with 2 HR, this series means Hawpe is out of his funk. Plus he is cheaper and has always performed much better than he is right now. Buy Low sell high, Astros just sold Oswalt, so have cut payroll, the Rockies really want to move Hawpe and Cook still, pus Berkman is owed 5.5 mil for the rest of the year? Ouch.

Hey Mike, there wasn’t anything wrong with the Bleacher GM Tigers article, but it was 10 days old and didn’t account for Maggs/Guillen injury so even at 10 days, it’s a bit dated.

Interesting calc on Maholm — I’d love to see that SAME calc done on Capps…and how it applied to the Capps for Ramos+ trade.

NOT that the calc holds any water, but it was interesting to see it done that way.

I truly believe many people do not realize just how big a prospect Montero is. Many GM’s will be kicking themselves for not considering him in some of the proposals that have been made. I for one, am quite content he was not traded. I’m never that high on prospects, because frankly, I don’t see them play. I’ve been following Montero closely. Un-freaking-believable.

Century: I’d be much more interested in him if I was in the AL. He can FLAT OUT mash, but will end up being a 1B/DH. I think the Yankees should hold on to him – Montero @ DH, Tex at 1B and Romine at C (unless they go get a C somewhere else).

I know 20 years old and is just absolutely mashing in triple A!

The fact that he went nearly 2 weeks without striking out once is something I don’t think I’ve ever seen. He’ll have his ups and downs in the development stages.

I’m sorry, I dont care whether he is or isn’t a catcher, YOU KEEP THIS GUY NO MATTER WHAT!

Looks like Dunn is no longer an option for the Padres.
