2010… not 2011.

Typo. Thanks for the heads-up.

Angels have something good going with Jered Weaver and Dan Haren. They need to dump Kazmir, and keep Santana because he has pitched good for the Angels In a comeback year. Of course not to his fulest extent but I would take that, idk why Angel fans are complaining about him. Joel PiƱiero is a solid #4 pitcher, and Napoli and Mathis could both be traded for pitching to make way for Hank Conger. Nap should net a nice return. Maybe Shaun Marcum?

Not sure why the Jays would need Napoli, though. Maybe the Jays will trade John Buck for Weaver

John Buck is a FA

Yeah, just making a point that trading Napoli for Marcum didn’t make sense

Why on earth would the jays trade Marcum for Napoli? Marcum is a cheap and controllable 2/3 starter, he’s worth way more then Napoli.

Guillen BETTER play second base for the tigers. For what they are paying him he better bat .280 minimum and win a damn gold glove.

I don’t understand why aceves didn’t have back surgery in May when he originally got hurt. It’s a bulging disk!! not a muscle tweak. At the very least he should have opted for the surgery after he reinjured himself trying to rehab it. He would be strong enough by next season, now, after wasting several months, he still hasn’t had surgery and may not be back to 100% for next season. Hopefully he can recover from this.

Shouldn’t almost every team be looking into Loux? Or at the very least, any team that didn’t sign a high draft pick. I get it, the kid is an injury concern. I got to see him pitch against Jungman at UT; he’s got pretty good stuff to pitch like that while injured.

Shields is done. Has been done for several years. He was a great Angel but that arm has nothing left to give.

If Kazmir doesn’t cut it early on in 2011 he moves to the bullpen. Be the most expensive middle reliever but maybe, just maybe, he can recapture a little bit of his former self.

Ollie Perez would like to have a word with you about him not being the most expensive middle reliever…

Kerry Wood is in line behind Perez.

Is Perez even a middle reliever? Seems like they have designated him as the bulpen waterboy and/or random middle infielder you pitch a few innings in a blowout.

MLBTR tells David Ortiz we think he won’t get more than 2 years.

You know, I was against signing Ortiz again. But then when I thought about it, if the Yanks are going to get stuck with another 4/$100MM for Jeter, I guess its not that bad to pay a premium for our guy who’s earned the respect and been the face of the organization. I just have a big problem with the fact that for that same $12.5 we could grab a guy like Vlad and spend the other $4-5MM bolstering the bullpen.

So did David Ortiz answer who out of Swisher, Gardner or Granderson will be traded by the Yankees this winter? They cant sign Crawford unless one of them goes.

I don’t really care about CC right now, if Grandy can stay healthy and continue his good hitting we don’t need Crawford when the yanks have a 20-20 man.

Last 2 seasons (including this one)

Granderson: .248/.323/.451 47 HR, 31 SB
Crawford: .305/.360/.469 30 HR, 102 SB

The Yankees don’t need him, but Crawford is a clear upgrade over Granderson. From August 1- present, Granderson is hitting .241/.325/.482 … good hitting? Seems to fit right in with his numbers above.

Kidding? No? Yes?

4 years 11 months ago

Every year? Since when? he’s has a slow start the last 2 years & went all to hit very well.. David doesn’t care what JacksTigers thinks either.

What math? Crawford is the much better player.
