Hey, it's not Toronto's problem that Loria is a jackass that bilked them out of money. Why should Toronto fans be punished to suffer because of that?

Besides Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, and Carl Crawford for less than what the Marlins are getting in return was allowed. You can't turn the clock back now.

I think I'm in the Twilight Zone.

I'm not a fan of his drug use, but I am a fan of him owning up to it and taking himself out of the batting title running at the time. He's no Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire etc. who decided to keep lying again and again.

Certainly helps out in left field if it goes through.

Melky is nothing more than a fourth outfielder / head case.

Well right now, our starting left fielder is Rajai Davis, so Melky's an upgrade as a starter.

Oh, I'm not saying Selig should or even can reject the deal. It's more worth noting that it's remarkable that Selig is pissed at Loria, who until now has been part of Selig's inner circle of owners (along with Reinsdorf, David Glass, Lew Wolff and the Wilpons).

That's selling him a bit short. He's definitely going to have a major regression next season, but while 2 / 16 is a bit of an overpay considering his one talent of note is "hit lots and lots of singles," but it's not terrible. I was fully expecting Ruben Amaro to throw some insanely moronic deal at Cabrera just to block Dom Brown, because, at the end of the day ... Rube gonna Rube.

Phillies seem to be playing it slow this offseason. Uncharacteristic, I know, but still.

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

Well the 12 player deal between the Blue Jays and the Marlins has been finalized. Everyone has had a physical and passed. I know this sucks for the Miami fans, in a move that has made them even more pathetic then the Mets. However this is a real gain for Toranto. Going from a 70 million dollar payroll to an 120 million over night. Will this turn into a championship for the Blue Jays, don't know. Just know the ALE just a whole lot more interesting.

I'll be living in Syracuse come next baseball season and its only a five hour drive to Toranto. I may have to become a Blue Jays fan and see a few games.

So our best choice for a new manager...is an old manager who has a .500 record?

Not thrilled with the hire, but I'll give it a chance.

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

I'm not thrilled with this either...

The prospect of Rupert Fucking Murdoch getting his claws into the YES Network is not exactly an appealing one, for reasons which I hope would become apparent...

Settle down, Beavis.

It's a TV network you don't get where you live and even if you did would have no impact on you.

^ Would you want your favorite team's network to be turned into tabloid trash?

And I do get YES broadcasted games via MLB.TV.

^ Somehow I suspect that if it was your team, you would. You're not a fan of Fox News, are ya? (I don't even watch that crap.)

Yes, because Blue Sky Studios (the Ice Age films), the Wall Street Journal, the HarperCollins book group, 20th Century FOX's television studios and the 20th Century Fox Film Corporation are all producing tabloid trash, because they've become infected due to osmosis.
