    I hate the thought of having too much technology in the game, but I would rather have a computer maintain a consistant strike zone than have the strike zone changed. Hitting is one of the most...

    l like the Jets/Sabres trade for both teams. I'm really quite impressed that Winnipeg made this move so quickly and got a good return for their much needed run for the post season. They had to get...

    I guess this makes the Padres the winner of the Shields for Meyers trade. :)
    I heard this earlier today and it made me smile. Pads are looking good. The NL West looks strong at the top. At least 3...

    The big '16 guys aren't going to sign for 4 or probably even 5 years and Rogers isn't likely to go over that. With that philosophy in play, Shields is about as good as you can ever expect to see sign...

    I would take Richards for Clarkson or with another piece for Phaneuf, but I wouldn't take him for Lupul. Lupul's contract expires earlier and I think he is the better player anyway.

    My favorite team is in the East, but I would love to see the best 16 make it. Travel in playoffs shouldn't be a problem. There seems to be 2 or 3 days between games and it's not like they travel...

    Thanks guys. I didn't know if there could be a potential loop-hole that could be used to trade for Richards and have no cap hit for leaving him in the minors. Oh well, so much for that idea. :)...

    This might be a dumb question, but I will ask anyway because I don't know if the CBA changed the way contracts are guaranteed. With Mike Richards clearing waivers and being sent to the minors, if he...

    I understand why JV gets benched late with leads and other teams go heavily with perimeter players, but The Nets kept their 2 7footers in the game and Jonas didn't get a sniff. He was not only having...

    I really liked the ground ball rate for a bullpen righthander considering some of the power hitters in this division. Hopefully AA can make a play for a guy like Badenhop who is even more of a ground...

    Do you guys think the Pacers fancy themselves as East contenders next season with George coming back? If not, would David West interest you? He comes off the books at the right time for the 2016...

    I agree with almost all of this. I would be trying to trade almost anyone on this team for picks and prospects hoping to fall further in the standings. I don't really want to see JVR shopped around...

    They need to decide if Martin is going to catch Dickey or not. I like Navarro as a backup catcher, but not so much as a primary DH. If Martin is going to catch for Dickey, there is no need to waste a...

    Yeah, Belisario is really tough on right handed batters. 65% ground ball rate against them. I think he would be a good fit for us seeing as we need at least one, but likely 2 righties for late in...

    I think it might come down to how Norris looks in Spring Training. If he looks good, I wouldn't be surprised to see him in the rotation and Sanchez closing. If he looks like he will need more time in...

    A cap hit like Richards as a third line center is just way too much. 5 years left at 5.75 per for a guy who just seems to have stopped producing. I still believe you can do better than him in return...

    It really doesn't matter who gets voted in. It's a meaningless exhibition game that not even the players involved care about winning. They may as well keep their fans happy and let them watch the...

    Absolutely. With a rebuild you try to find a young franchise player. If I could get McDavid I would do whatever it took.

    I mentioned Martin when he was DFAed. Was only interested in him because of his big arm and high ground ball rate. I thought he might be a good fit. Maybe he isn't as MLB ready as AA would like.

    I hope you're right. I'm just not a big fan of Navarro so I'm sure I am undervaluing him.

    6'8" righthander Chris Martin was designated for assignment by the Rockies. In limited MLB action last season he showed good control to go with his mid 90's velocity and pitched to a great 60+%...
