    http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/10544839/ian-kinsler-intends-become-elite-second-baseman-detroit-tigers-espn-magazine



    He comes off as kind of a douche in this article. I guess I always...

    Completely agree. In fact, this rotation is concerning me quite a bit. Darvish has a tendency to pick up those "general soreness" type of injuries and miss a start or two. I think Perez is incredibly...

    Second basemen have one of the steepest curves of decline of any other position. If he takes care of his body he can be a good player into his mid to late 30s, but the precedent is very much in the...

    Kins will see more fastballs in that lineup, and he's a good fastball hitter. But the main reason why I think his power numbers will go up, while his peripherals will go down, is because he will have...

    Harrison is back pitching off of a mound and he will be back to 100% by spring training, barring setback. Lewis signed a minor league deal and his health is much more of an issue, so he's mainly a...

    I think if bidding for Tanaka goes up to $20mm annually, then guys like Garza and Jimenez find work very quickly. I think he signs an escalating contract for a long duration, something like 7 years...

    I don't mean any offense, but that is an absolutely worthless deal. The Rangers have a dearth of young talented solid pitchers, but not a lot of experience being a top of the rotation horse (besides...

    I think they want Cruz to walk to recoup the first round pick. And if it so happens that the draft pick compensation completely dries out the market, I don't think JD has any problems bringing back...

    The Rangers had $74mm committed to the team at the end of the 2013 season. Losing Kinsler and adding Fielder adds $8mm to next years payroll. Resigning Soto is another $3mm. The details of Choo's...

    1. The only way I can convince the kind of players it would take to get Braun, is to show you precedence. Mark Texeira got traded to the Braves for their top 3 prospects (each guy was a top 50...

    Couple of points on the post above:

    1. Rangers don't get Braun without an overwhelming offer. It starts with Profar and a pitcher, someone like Martin Perez, plus a few other pieces. Since those...

    Yea, looks like Martin did enough to impress last season that he gets the CF job all to himself. If he can perform a little better against lefties, he can be a star....

    Gentry traded to Athletics

    Craig Gentry and Josh Lindblom got dealt to the A's for Michael Choice and some guy I don't know. Seems like a speed for power swap, except Choice is 24 and still developing while Gentry is in his...

    All good points, and I can't disagree that Ellsbury is a better player. I think the OBP thing is a bigger gap than you think because Ellsbury has never had an OBP above .380, and if you ignore the...

    In a vacuum I think you're right, Ellsbury is a better player. But as a fit on the Rangers I think its very much the other way around and its not even close. The Rangers biggest problem on offense...

    Kind of a minor thing, but the $30mm is being paid by the Tigers in 5 $6mm payments from 2016 to 2020. That makes Prince a $24mm annual player this year and next, but just $18mm for the rest of it....

    Its not stupid and its definitely happening. Maybe 400 ABs at first and 200 at DH next season (if he's healthy), but the older he gets the less he will be playing defense. Prince is our problem for...

    Nah McCann's swing is perfect for Arlington. He's a younger Nellie Cruz who plays catcher and bats leftie. If you look at it that way, then its a great fit. If you're expecting .310/.400/.950 then...

    When dealing with prospects, its all about potential. The most basic way to look at this, is Shelby's ceiling is a strong 2 or borderline 1. Profar could be the best all around middle infielder in...

    Profar is worth more than Miller at this point. It would take Miller and Adams at the very least. Its much more likely that Profar stays and Andrus gets dealt since the latter is older and more...

    I think signing Cano would be a horrible decision, unless he comes way down on price and years. 1 WAR the past few seasons has been worth about $4.5mm and Cano has accumulated 39 WAR over the past...
