I hate to say this, but the acquisition of Gregg seems like it's working out so far. He looked good today for the Cubs.

Geez. I'm glad the Braves are getting the hell out of San Francisco after three straight ass beatings. It would be nice to play well in AZ to salvage the road trip.

Give him a little time- I'm sure he'll implode.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Note to Joba:

Insulting Mariano Rivera is NOT a good career move. The few people who don't think you're a jackass for getting yourself hurt by jumping on a trampoline, now think you are a jackass for sniping at Mo. If you don't want to end your career as a batboy for Slippery Rock State Teacher's College, I suggest you apologize. Rapidly.

Cubs lock up Anthony Rizzo to a potentially nine-year contract, in a deal that makes no sense whatsoever for the team.

Phillies superstar Ben Revere is currently sporting a .471 OPS.

Hell of a fuckin' trade there, Rube.
I'm not sure what's happening with Revere. He had posted good numbers with the Twins in the couple years he was with them.

Conversely, Vance Worley has an ERA of 7.15 with an opponent avg of .379, so it's not like the Twins have made out all that well so far either. We'll have to wait and see how Trevor May handles the big leagues, but if given the option at the moment I'd take Ben Revere back. Hopefully when May joins the majors I'll change my tune.

No, he really didn't. In 2011, Revere posted a 76 OPS+; last year, it was 89. So he wasn't really even anywhere near league average. Revere essentially has one core tool -- run really fast -- and beyond that, he's a slap hitter. It astounds me that with nearly 1,200 plate appearances in his career, he has yet to hit a single dinger.

Oh yeah, the Mets have signed Rick Ankiel. Nothing stopping us now!

Yeah, I saw that... first question that came to my mind was.. why? At least the last two years are team options. Like the Castro long term contract, this really seems like a gamble with a player who hasn't yet demonstrated he can consistently perform at the major league level. Both strike me as lite versions of the Soriano contract.

Ok, by good I just meant better than he's doing this year (and better than some Twins are doing, save for the homeruns department). I don't follow OPS+ stats or what averages are.

Granderson's back from the DL as of today.

And Joba is still a jackass.

The Astros lose in the most Astro way possible.
