Great story John Buck…

Just wanted to say, What a great 2010 MLB Season. We as Baseball fans couldn’t have asked for more! It was truly great! I can’t wait until 2011 Opening Day but for now, LET’S GET THIS OFF-SEASON STARTED!

The only bad thing about this season was all the injuries to top players, it really took a toll on the pennant races.

Meh.

Red Sox: They were hit just as bad as the 2008 Yankees, and both teams were really not that far away from a playoff spot.

White Sox: Were just underwhelming, Beckham did not have a good year.

Angels: I could see how the Injury to Kendry Morales hurt them.

Cardinals: Were they badly injured?

Padres: They just fell flat. Losing Latos for part of the push, and Blanks did not help.

Rockies: Definitely took a hit with Tulo down, but guys like Ubaldo just didn’t do well in the second half.

I actually liked seeing different teams in the AL West, NL Central and NL West besides seeing the Angels, Cards/Cubs, and Dodgers.

Wasn’t Bautista also non-tendered? I thought the Jays non-tendered him and then re-signed him at his 2009 salary. I could be confused…

you’re right.

No, last year Bautista was arbitration eligible but the Jays signed him to a one-year deal before the arbitration hearing took place.

John Buck was great for Blue Jays. Wish we could keep him here longer, he showed great bat to go with the great work he did with Jays young pitchers.

As far as I remember, Jose Bautista was also non-tendered and signed with Blue Jays, going on to hit 54Hrs and winning the Hank Aron award.

he did a great job, made himself a type b and he’ll bring us back a pick… he did his job.

And seeing as to how well AA did in the compensation round in ’10…a type B, is a #1 Overall pick pretty much.

What happened with Wang’s comeback? He never pitched in the majors this year.

The date he was supposed to return was completely off the mark, I MEAN COMPLETELY, he was in no conditition to return the date they set for him.

Garrett Atkins was awful, obviously. Based on park factors, what might he have projected at Coors Field?

His numbers dropped at Coors as well. From 2006 he hit 29, 25, 21, 9 and 1 respectively. Considering that in 2009 he hit only 9 HRs at Coors, I think 5 is not too far off, unless he had a rebound year.
