    Loney is trash. Awful. Terrible. A waste of space.

    If he starts the Rays FO has been downgraded to ****** status.

    Good signing by the Rays. He'll be an awesome platoon

    Joe Maddon basically just said what they see in Loney.

    It's all tools and skills that they are confident have not been harnessed correctly

    I would laugh if Loney magically started hitting over .300.

    Then I'd cry.

    Maddon expressed special interest in his untapped power.

    He's pretty good defensively.

    Speaking of a platoon partner, you think the Rays sign Juan Rivera as the right-handed complement? Or Mark Reynolds?
    the dodgers tried this, it made us drop 200+mill to acquire Adrian.

    i wouldn't suggest this route for tampa.

    Loney is worthless, makes me sad he's no longer a Dodger.

    I wholly expect him to post an .800+ OPS because it's the Rays.

    It's a bet. After his first two years, he's been dropping like a stone.

    He could have won the BRS job, and what did he do? Just made sure the AL East has the right book on the him. Good glove however.

    I don't think he ever has an OPS of over .750 in a full season again. Hell, .680 might be it.
    I am not a con artist! I am a businessman! I have a big brain and I'm good at making deals! People are just jealous of my BIG BRAIN! BAD!

    Guess who? The future X-Presdent...

    They acquired Yunel Escobar to upgrade at SS and have had success in the past with moves like this. If you don't have anything positive to say, then don't say it at all.
