Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

At some point, do you just say "Peyton, Tulowitzki, and Batman, get the hell out. I need some sleep"??

Ben Sheets is on fire. 3-0 with a 0.50 ERA over 18 innings. I'm halfway convinced he sold his soul to the devil.

The Bravos are all wearing high socks tonight trying to break the Monday curse. I love it.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

The A's had a promotion called "Come for the game, Stay for the Pie" tonight with $11 tickets. That promotion took on a literal sense.

It was still an awesome MLB Promotion.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

So far the Cubs have traded:

- Soto to the Rangers foir minor league pitcher Jacob Brigham and a player to be named later or cash.
- Maholm & Johnson to the Braves for right-handed pitchers Arodys Vizcaino, a top prospect who had season-ending Tommy John surgery in April, and Jaye Chapman to the Cubs. The Braves also got cash in the deal.

The Dodgers are still interested in Dempster, but after acquiring Shane Victorino from the Phillies, may no longer need Soriano.

As a Braves fan I like the Maholm deal and we get a guy in Johnson that rakes left handed pitching, which the Braves really need. Maholm also adds another lefty to the rotation. I like Dempster but didn't want to give up Delgado for a two month rental especially if he would be wishing he was in L.A. the whole time.

I'm new but I think you and me are going to get along just fine. After watching Ben Sheets prove he isn't a fluke I started thinking of all these other pitchers out there waiting for a call. Hey, does anybody know what Brandon Webb is doing these days?

Not a Braves fan here, but I love the high sock look. Looking like a ball player beats the pajama look any day of the week.

Chicago and Detroit reporters are saying that the Cubs and Tigers are trying desperately to put together a deal for Soriano, but they've hit a roadblock on making the money work (Dave Kaplan says that the Cubs are willing to eat everything left this year, but they don't want to pay for Soriano to play elsewhere for two more years).

DOOOOOOOOOOO IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I've just been hitting refresh on mlbtraderumors throughout the day. Quite a busy afternoon. Of interest, Gaby Sanchez to the Pirates. This guy was hitting about 19 home runs a year for the Marlins and then hit .202 this year ending up in AAA. Maybe he can turn it around and be a driving force to the Bucs miracle season.

Apparently, the Dodgers weren't willing to part with a high end prospect for a rental either.

Dempster has been traded to Texas for third baseman Christian Villanueva and right-handed pitcher Kyle Hendricks, both from high-Class A Myrtle Beach.

Not sure how high they rank in the Rangers' farm system.

Hmm, two Mets fans have posted "I'm no Braves fan, but..." like I don't already know!

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Going to St. Louis and Chicago tomorrow.. can't make it to watch the game at Wrigley, most likely. I am going to drive near all three stadiums though. I do plan on catching games at Fenway and Citizens Bank Park next week.

I hate Red Sox nation but I have to admit that a game in Fenway true baseball fan experience.

What did you think of Medlan's return to the rotation last night? With Tommy on the DL he might get a few more starts. He looked sharp. His changeup is killing guys at the plate.
