    Agreed. I think you go year to year with Javy for now. You donít want to extend a guy off an MVP level season that blows away their previous performance when you still have 3 years of control anyway.

    Exactly my thoughts.

    I need to see this year happen again next year before I get into the discussions of an extension.

    Liriano has cleared waivers and has been pretty good vs LHH this year. Does our seemingly lack of interest indicate a high level of confidence in Smyly's return?

    Beltre would be intruiging IF and only if KB is sidelined for more than August

    I like the idea of Liriano in the pen, but it depends on how much he costs. We really could use a guy who dominates lefties.

    I would like Liriano as well. I doubt he would cost much.

    I like Liriano too, but not until the very last minute at the end of the month. If they trade for him now they might need to DFA him anyway in a week or two when injured pitchers start returning. Iíd be cool with grabbing him right before rosters expand.

    Which sounds very plausible. There is no chance Beltre makes it past St. Louis or Milwaukee, so this point is probably moot, anyways.
    Screw sabermetics.

    I thought this was brought up because he cleared? Maybe I am wrong. If he has not cleared already, I totally agree. No chance he gets here.

    Beltre is still owed $5-6 million and has been worth 0.5 fwar. His numbers away from Texas are awful. Iíd be surprised if he doesnít clear, but Iíd rather play Bote at 3rd until KB is back. Milwaukee already has 2 3b. I donít see how Beltre fits there and they probably donít have $5-6 mil to block the cubs from getting a below average player.
