    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.



    Playoff Bochy.

    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.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    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.
