    I think Ackley rebounds to respectable levels especially with them (reportedly) bringing the fences in. He had a fine rookie year before ******** the bed last season.

    Agreed, I like Ackley. He should be a solid player. It baffles my mind how poorly Smoak has done though. I bet they hope bringing the fences in helps him too, somehow.

    The guy can take walks and show solid discipline. He just hasn't shown that he can hit for either power or contact at all at the big league level. In almost 1500 career PA's he has a career OPS under .700 which is abysmal for any position let alone 1B. In fairness to him, he's not a power hitter. Never was in the minor leagues as well.

    Both guys hit free agency in 2014. I see what they did there.

    The Angels rotation is now Weaver-Wilson-Blanton-Hanson-Vargas. They better plan on scoring lots of runs.

    That rotation stinks.

    Yeah that rotation just isn't very consistent.

    The Yankees have designated Jim Miller for assignment, the team announced. The move frees up a 40-man roster spot for Ichiro Suzuki, who has officially re-signed.

    Miller, 30, appeared in 33 games for Oakland this past season. He posted a 2.59 ERA with 8.1 K.9 and 5.0 BB/9 in 48 2/3 innings. The Yankees claimed him off waivers from the Athletics late last month.

    Saw this posted elsewhere.


    My take on the east...

    Yanks - Old old old... but still a great looking team. Not a lot of contingency players to back things up but theyll manage one way or the other to contend.

    Jays - They have everything they need and more to win the East but a lot of variables that could turn that potential into another trainwreck.

    Sox - theyre being written off too early, loads of potential but a massive amount of variables. But I feel theyll be a good team this season for some reason.

    Rays - Good starters, lots of inexperience, a complete lack of offense. i dont see pitching alone getting them by this year. They need to pick up a bat.

    Orioles - Last year was a good run but this year will be back to the cellar and empty seats at Camden yard. Theyve done nothing to better themselves.

    Until reading the above, I didn't even know we had Jim Miller. He won't be missed.

    If Greinke wasn't enough to bulk up their rotation, why do people think Vargas/Hanson/Blanton will be any better? That offense is going to have to carry them all season, except when Weaver starts.
