Eye for an eye, dinger for a ding-dong.

I'm surprised we didn't see 3 balls hitting the ground afterwards.

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

It looked the ball entered his body in the second pick. Good God that must have felt like shit. No way I don't puke all over home plate if that happens to me.

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

Not a vendetta. Science tells us that the mishandling in no way would affect the high concentrate of PED's found in the urine. Everybody knows that Braun got off on a technicality. Instead of dealing with it, Braun effectively shit all over some middle class lab technician and tried to make him look like the bad guy. PED's don't really bother me that much in general but it seems like Braun should have just known he got lucky on this one and kept his mouth shut.

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

Yankees signed Vernon Wells. Thoughts on this?

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

Its a typical Yankee move to say the least. That team just has to get in the mindset that they are an old team that needs to get younger. Vernon Wells is certainly a decent player but his best years are well beyond him.

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

With all the injuries, I say let them get whoever they can. I wish they'd made a play for Carlos Lee, but there we are.

And on the Mets side, unfortunately Matt den Dekker got hurt. I thought he'd be up in the majors at least by the All-Star break. Perhaps he still can be...

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

That is true. The Yankees are going to be in stop gap mode this year. The good news is that they have the ability to swing deals at the trade deadline that other teams can't. You just never know what the Yankees will do. Nothing surprises me anymore.

Not really. The business guys like Levine and Trost, not Cashman, have Hal Steinbrenner's ear, which is how the whole "OH SHIT WE HAVE TO GET UNDER $189 MILLION" scramble began in the first place, despite those same business guys being the dopes who worked out ludicrous deals like the A-Rod extension. So their financial flexibility isn't there, and the farm system is at least a year or two away from providing quality talent. The Yankees have some severe issues right now; it's a really bad situation for any GM to be dealing with (has been since George Steinbrenner got ill, really), and that Cashman's even still there at this point is rather surprising.

The best part: Vernon Wells was the oldest position player on the Angels. He'll be the sixth-oldest position player on the Yankees.

Fair enough but do you expect them to become sellers mid-season if things go south quickly.
