    I know (hope) that you're being sarcastic, but when I think about what A-Rod might be able to do, assuming he even comes back (which I don't think is a given), I look at the last season Barry Bonds...

    I'm not sure the union felt as comfortable as you do because it folded its hand rather quickly and agreed to testing and suspensions and lifetime bans and whatever else in the face of these "mere...

    More than 400K I think. His last deal before he signed his current deal was at 400K and RAB says he "got a raise."

    Agree about getting better hitters. We really need for one or two of the young guys to come through because we're never going to build a consistently dominant team signing free agents to long-term...

    If PEDs are "in the game," PED use will be rampant in MLB, which means it will be rampant in the minors because guys will have to be bigger and stronger to have a shot at that lottery ticket that is...

    Shields just got cheaper in FA. Lester and Scherzer just got more expensive.

    I hope we never see A-Rod on the field again. He's a distraction, plus I suspect he'll suck just as much as Jeter did last year after a lengthy year off and another birthday.

    I think that's the reason I favor the DH in MLB. Pitchers get relatively few ABs against minor league pitchers, then arrive in the NL and are expected to face major league pitchers.

    Also, I see...

    Go after international stars, yes, but I don't know that Kang is one of those guys. Yes he hit a bunch of HR and had a high batting average. Kaz Matsui hit 36 HR and hit .332 in the Japanese league...

    He hit .360 in the Korean league.

    Former MLB Felix Pie hit .337 and Eric Thames hit .341 in the same league.

    It's Kang not Hang. ;)

    Is it really the same core though? The only starting position player from the 2010 team that is still around is Posey. (Sandoval was a reserve on the 2010 team - Uribe started every game at 3B)

    The Royals were generally thought to have "lost" the Wil Myers for James Shields/Wade Davis trade, but if they win the WS, I wonder if that thinking will change.

    Well, they made good contact and didn't swing at balls (and sometimes not strikes either), so they were patient at the plate, maybe to a fault sometimes.

    They were among the lowest in the league...

    So Tomas will get more than Abreu and this guy will get more than Tomas. That's the trend, right?

    By the way, the O's will make a QO to Nelson Cruz and they won't pick up the option on Nick Markakis, who will become a free agent.
