    -Congrats to Willie for getting back in the game.
    -Congrats to Choo for being able to stat in the good ‘ole US of A. Playing for the Indians is a challenge in and of itself.
    -Congrats to D-Train getting another shot.
    -Looking forward to another great year of Ozzie being Ozzie.

      More Ozzie Guillen to whoever trades!

      Maybe next year, the White Sox could claim Ozzie Guillen from the White Sox.

    I think the addition of Willie Randolph to the Orioles staff would be an outstanding addition…But “they are negotiotiating a deal?” so they would have to give up a player? Adam Jones, Matt Weiters, and Brian Matusz for Willie? I think thats too much…

    • Negotiating as in how much cash will it take. You don’t have to give up players to hire a coach not working anywhere

    Ozzie needs to stop talking…

    Here’s a fun fact for all of y’all…On June 2nd, R.J. Anderson had an article written about two pitchers who had changed teams on that very day…Who were those pitchers you ask? Well ironically enough, Dana Eveland and Dontrelle Willis!

    Also, I find it odd that the Padres wouldn’t offer arbitration to Miguel Tejada…Worse that happens is he stays and plays 3B, SS and pinch hits…

      It all boils down to money I think.

    is bench coach in the majors more proof u can manage a staff than proving urself in the minors?

    • Seligs_Boi 5 years ago

      Being the Commish >>>>>>>> Manager >>> bench coach >>> minors

    Congrats Choo, it’ll be a pleasure watching your career unfold.

  10. you guys hatin on the loyalty of Choo is despicable.

    • Seligs_Boi 5 years ago

      Choo is a great ambassador to the game. Selig approves of him.

  11. Seligs_Boi 5 years ago

    Just going to say… Selig approves this post.

    Now that North Korea has (again) taken it upon itself to kill men in uniform in South Korea this morning, maybe we can stop and reconsider the value in Choo’s military deferment. Serving in the military carries with it an inherent risk that cannot be measured in the dollars and cents of his next contract. Choo’s deferment means alot more than just being a member of the tribe or getting a long term deal. Let’s hope war is averted on the Korean Peninsula, so everyone can focus on baseball and not on war.

      If Choo did not get the deferment, he still would have avoided military service because he intended to become an American citizen.

        There was no way that Choo was going to serve in the military. I dont blame him for trying to figure out other possible ways to get out of it, believe me i would choose baseballs over bombs anyday. At least for him he got the exemption that way he didnt have to disgrace himself back home to stay here in the US.
