    Let's get this thread back on topic guys. We have an off topic thread for you to post this stuff, let's leave this to the baseball talk.

    And you guys know you're not allowed to post pictures in here. Links are fine when appropriate, but actually posting pictures in here can get you infracted. I won't, but if another mod saw it they might. So let's avoid doing that in the future.

    This sums up every sports interview, ever.

    Jays sign 5 guys to minor league deals, adding some AAA depth. Vargas is the biggest name but we already heard about that one the other day.

    Reds about to acquire Choo for Stubbs and SS Didi Greogorius. I wonder if this is a precursor to Asdrubal getting moved in something major...

    What do you guys think of the Jays signing Jim Thome to a 1 year contract as a DH?

    Sure the guy is ancient right now in terms of playing years but the guy can still get on base at a good clip and can still hit well enough.

    Last year he had a .344 OBP, a low for him but certainly still respectable and a .786 OPS.

    I think there's a good chance he could do better than those numbers, especially in the Jays lineup.

    He's most certainly would be better than Lind.

    Basically this would be our Frank Thomas signing again, but without the stupid contract.

    I'd prefer Lance Berkman...he's six years younger than Thome, can still field a couple positions if needed and has a strong bat from both sides of the plate.

    I would be so down for Thome. I dunno if he'd want to come here but I'm just dying to have a lefty power presence in the middle of our lineup

    His demands are also a lot higher, and I think if he was going to sign to be a primary DH, he would just go back to the Astros

    Problem with Thome is he gives us the same problem we have with Lind. He can't hit lefties and having means you are carrying 3 players that can only play DH/1B

    props to vick27m

    They can keep the bag of balls, and even take a couple million bucks for their troubles. Just get him outta here.

    Good pick up for the Reds, though he didn't come cheap.

    And the Yanks sign Youk.

    Edit: looks like that Reds trade might not be official...might be a 3 team trade now?

    ^^I've seen some reports that the D-backs GM is in love with that Gregorius kid and that it might be possible that he gets flipped.
