    Still for there reasons both teams were sinking last year, and the Orioles took advantage. The Orioles pretty much beat up on the Jays as well when the teams faced off against each other. Will the Orioles be able to beat up on the AL East this year like they did last year?

    I'm not sure, but I think the Jays would rival that list last year.

    this is the problem with free agents. when one free agent signs early and is overpaid, multiple other free agents who think they are better want to be paid accordingly based on how much better they are, even if that means they would be overpaid too.

    Wasn't making the list to compare it to the Jays, I'm just saying people saying we're really as bad as 2012 need to take just how much time our core missed, it's not a good recipe for success.

    Well it's pretty much the same reason why the Jays went down the tubes last year.

    If what you are saying is true and of course the Blue Jay upgrades, I just don't see the Orioles repeating next year. It wouldn't surprise me if they end up in 5th place in the AL East honestly.

    The AL East is wide open next year. The Jays will be better. If healthy, the Red Sox could win 90+ games. I expect the O's to take a slight step back but still contend. The Yankees could finish 1st just as easily as they could finish 3rd. Its a toss up on who the favorite is right now. Should be a fun, competitive division in 2013. Not 1 team in the division is done making moves either.

    He's had a bad reputation when it comes to fielding, so I was surprised when wasn't nearly that bad last season. He's more athletic than he looks and it got to the point when I wasn't really concerned when he took the field.

    Probably a slight overpay, but with a contract this small on a team like Boston I don't really see it being an issue.

    He's got some good pop, could probably do some decent damage at Fenway

    With the amount of money Boston dumped, they can afford a signing like this easy.

    You do realize that you don't have to be a defensive stud to play LF at Fenway right?

    I wanted him here to platoon with Lind but there's no way we would have offered that much. Given the contract, there's no question he won't be a platoon guy in Boston. I still don't think you can get away with having him hit vs RHP on a regular basis.
