    I would dispute that. Whether as a division leader or wild card, I just don't see this team going far in the playoffs. Some teams (like the As) have to go all in when they get the chance, but the...

    I would not sign him to those years at those dollars. I would, however, have given up on the 2013 season earlier and traded his *** for some grade A prime young bucks that could help up us now or...

    OF is always crowded, especially since they don't distinguish between center, left and right.

    I cannot imagine anyone really misses the Boss in his prime.

    For me, Bernie, Gossage, Gator, 1996 Mo.

    He does seem to be doing well with his pitchers and still receives the ball well, but obviously that is not what really landed him his contract. His offense has been atrocious, and I am sure that he...

    I'm as big a Brett fan as anyone, but still seems silly to be judging anything except this season. If his knees explode tomorrow, the last month won't mean a thing. At the same time, if he had sucked...

    Giving up 22 runs in a series could be the work of just a handful of pitchers. Failing to score in 2 games falls on at least 9 different players. Of course any one batter could easily go 2 days...

    I'm sorry - how are we looking in "hindsight" after the first two months of a 5 year contract?

    I don't do ST games - does anyone else charge "premium" tickets like this?

    Regardless, I see the Sox got fined - that money should be used to refund the fans who went to the game, if not for the...

    What was the mistake?

    Keeping all our players, getting 85 wins, sitting home in October, and having to lose draft picks to sign FAs to shore up a gutted team because we have a poor farm system?

    But Jeter went around Cashman and got more money out of Levine and Hal. Cash was going to resign him, but probably for less. I didn't complain a whit about Mo.

    While I agree in general, the problem is that the ownership put the cap on while also burdening the payroll with contracts such as ARod, Jeter, Ichiro, and the Sorianos. That substantially reduces...

    He's had "full control" since 2008, no? That's long enough to build a better farm system.

    However, I don't know that he's had full control for some time, if ever. 2008 (youth movement FTL) and...

    b) Logically, unless...

    For many principled reasons I am against this idea.

    But selfishly, as a teacher who will never get to go to an opening day game until after I retire, I also in favor of this idea.

    While that affects his dollars, I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. A good utility player can be valuable, and I don't really see many of them.

    We lost Cano, Mo, Pettite, Granderson, Boone Logan AND Alex Rodriguez. And I think you have to count those losses in with the gains when evaluating the offseason.
