    But as far as needs to Tribe can use a LF, BP hell and rotation help. We can definitely give them what we want. But will it satisfy them is the question.

    Dude MASHED lefties last year and is controllable, perfect platoon with Lind.

Especially with the fact Hamilton will not be offered more then 4 yrs by anyone falls in line with our 5 yr or less self mandate. Him hitting 4th between Bautista and E5 would be magic just imagine.

    Reyes
    Cabrera
    Bautista
    Hamilton
    E5
    Lawrie
    Rasmus
    JPA
    Bonifacia/Izturis

    Melky/Hamilton/Bautista would all play 54 games at DH the rest in the outfield corners. With Hamilton staying in LF and Bautista in RF and only Melky playing both corner positions. As injuries and rest days occur none of the players would probably play more then 40 games at dh really. Signing Hamilton just makes too much sense hence it won't happen.

    Yeah it's no secret they've been trying to unload him for a while.

    I don't want to say it's a foregone conclusion that Texas gets Greinke...but it's looking pretty much like they're going to sign him and turn around and deal for Upton. Just thinking about how stacked that team is, and will be, I'm mad jealous. I think we're lucky to have 2 potential starting catchers and 2 potential CFs, and they have like an entire roster of really strong prospects, most of whom could probably start.

    I think you are underestimating the loss of Napoli and potentially Hamilton

    If Upton hits like he did last year, then their offense will be much weaker

    you are talking

    Kinsler
    Andrus
    Upton
    Cruz
    Moreland
    Murphy
    Soto
    Profar
    Gentry/Leroys Martin

    still good but not your usual frightening texas lineup

    Even if Upton goes to Texas, they would have to give up Andrus at the very least.

    Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports said that Dodgers are again front runners and are close MLBTR has it there. So if Dodgers get Greinke then who does Texas go after instead?

    They'd probably scoop up Jackson and Sanchez.

    yeah thats one less stud to worry about..

    and honestly, it doesn't seem like the AL has improved much

    Yankees have exactly the same team that is 1 year older
    Red Sox still don't have any pitching or pen
    Rays are never gonna do anything big and might still lose a pitcher
    Baltimore haven't done anything

    Detroit will be good
    Chisox don't scare me

    LA have lost 3 pitchers from the rotation now
    Texas still haven't don anything
    Oakland are never gonna do anything and I doubt they repeat

    If you think about it, we've blown everyone out of the water in terms of moves so far.. Obviously there is still some time for some teams to catchup

    I guess I need to STFU maybe now Texas re-signs Hamilton and trades for an SP instead? But yeah, awesome to have Greinke as far away as possible.

    yeah but how much offense are they gonna get .. their offense looks like its gonna be pretty weak yet again

    obviously its all about the pitching for them and with Price, Moore and at least one of Shields, Hellickson and throwing in guys like Cobb and Archer, they should be fine. But Rodney is probably gone so their pen isn't gonna be as good

    I'm just hoping they don't kick our *** again this season when we play them

    Dodgers sign Greinke for 6/$147mm. Good luck LA getting value out of that contract!
