Re: MLB Offseason 2012

I don't expect them to become sellers, but I do expect them to stand pat no matter what, much as they did this offseason.

I will find it perversely hilarious if taking on Vernon Wells' contract is what keeps them from hanging onto Robinson Cano this fall.

Wells is not the player he was and it won't help the Yankees. I agree with the idea that they need to quit stop gapping and let the farm system grow. Too bad they are the Yankees and it will not happen.

Yankees signed Vernon Wells. Thoughts on this?

Would of been a good deal, five years ago.

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

^ At least Hawk appears to know what's going on in the game. About the only thing he does that really irritates me is when he insults the opposing team (like calling the Twins "Twinkies").

He also had a few choice meltdowns this past year where he seemed on the verge of an absolute nervous breakdown.

Yeah, Hawk is a tool and I would not object to him getting run over by a bus.

McCarver stepping down from Fox is a good thing, although his voice is so milquetoast that he's pretty easy to ignore. Now if we can only get Joe Buck to stop defiling the game.

The problem with Joe Buck is that in September and October, he is fucking impossible to avoid if you watch both baseball and football.

The problem with Joe Buck is that he is a classic case of a guy having a job solely because of who his sperm donor was, and he is pathologically incapable of shutting the fuck up.

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

Very true. As far as the Hawk Harrelson video goes. I swear it looks like the umpire immediately was thinking that he had just made a horrible mistake. He seemed very sheepish around Ventura.

It was also hilarious listening to Harrelson's broadcast partner during the middle of his rant. You could almost hear him praying for the commercial break.

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

Johan Santana has flown back to New York for further examination; an MRI shows that he re-tore the anterior capsule in his shoulder, which is likely career-ending. Sandy Alderson is painting a pretty rosy picture, saying that Santana's season is in jeopardy, but two capsule surgeries in the span of roughly a year, along with Santana showing up to spring training with a dead arm, does not bode well for him. He's almost certainly thrown his last pitch as a Met, in any event.

God, everything about the Mets has been a tragedy for the last ten years.

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

I think I actually feel a shred of pity for Yankees fans. This lineup is terrible:



I mean, it's not some abomination unto the Lord, like what the Marlins will be sending out every day, but ... damn.
