Weird. They cooled off on Dempster because the Cubs' asking price was too high -- I would kill to be a fly on the wall in the Cubs front office right now if the Dodgers are in on Garza.

Edit: holy smokes, word is that it's Garza for Zach Lee AND additional players. If true, Hoyer and Theo are goddamn wizards.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Now Ryan Dempster is saying that there is no trade and he doesn't know where the info is coming from. This is getting weird.

He's probably saying there's no trade because the Cubs won't approach him about a 10-5 waiver until the whole thing is locked down. (Dempster has told the team he'll waive his rights, but the waiver has to be formally in writing and with regard to the specific trade at hand.)

Braves have acquired Ryan Dempster. The other half of the deal isn't finalized yet, but looks like pitcher Randall Delgado is the centerpiece.
Sorry to see Demp go, but at least we got something for him. Who knows, maybe we'll resign him in the off season!

Know anything about this Randall Delgado? Probably isn't a world breaker since Dempster is basically a rental. Either way, hope Demp gets the Braves to the post season.

Where are these stories? SI pulled the one they had on Dempster-to-Atlanta. ESPN still has their story on a potential deal.

Dempster for one so-so pitcher seems like a bad deal for us.

I can't find anything about Garza.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Ichiro traded to the Yankees for two prospects. The Yankees are in Seattle right now. Ichiro had to approve this trade, so he's about to get the shit booed out of him.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I'll miss Ichiro but this sort of trade was the best possible ending to his career. He is not the player he once was, and the Mariners would have been foolish to resign him. Everyone wins here - Ichiro gets a chance to win a World Series, the Yankees get a talented utility player, and the Mariners get some future prospects.

I wish I lived closer to Seattle; It would be fun to see tonight's game.

^This.

Ichiro is nearing the end of the line, the M's suck and his contract weighs them down going forward. The Yanks need an outfielder with Gardner done for the year. Ichiro gets a chance at a ring, Mariners get some prospects. It works for everyone.

I agree with everyone else, although I certainly expected Ichiro to retire as a Mariner. He's just too well-associated with them.

I detected very few boos when Ichiro came to bat. The M's crowd gave him a rousing ovation.

I like Ichiro, so seeing him in a Yankees uniform is going to suck. But at least this way he has a shot at getting a ring before he retires.

I hope they can do one of those trendy one-day contract things when he finally hangs it up. And I definitely see him going into the Hall of Fame with a Mariners cap.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Well imagine my surprise when I turned on the game tonight to see Ichiro at bat wearing Yankees blue and gray I do agree though, he'll be going into the hall of fame with a Mariners cap.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

What, no one wants to see him in an Orix Blue Wave hat?

Also, what happened in the 10th inning of the Met game?

It was tied, going to extras, and I decided to get ready for bed. After brushing my teeth and putting on my PJs, it's suddenly 8-2.

Does the bullpen know it's not batting practice?

His bow to the fans in his first at bat was awesome.
