Well, as a Twins fan, can't say I'm jumping for joy about this:

*Sigh* Ryan was doing a solid job up to this point too.
I'm not liking that move either. Too much money for too little talent.

Just a reminder of what Kevin Youkilis will look like now that he has to shave that amazing beard:



Youk is not an attractive man.

Enjoy watching him taking those called third strikes right down the middle and complaining to the umpire about it every single time.

(I still like Youkilis and appreciate what he did as a member of the Red Sox, but that got really annoying. )

What happens when A-Rod comes back? One of them plays DH?

Can't blame him for trying, but why do the Mets do this now?

Dickey has had one good season and everyone knows his signature pitch. I'd like to see him repeat his success, even have a twelve-fifteen win season before I sign him to any kind contract or trade my futures for him (as a lot of Jays fans want to)

Dickey has averaged a 130 ERA+ over the last three seasons. He's well beyond the point of needing to see his performance repeated.

And Josh Hamilton is now an Angel.

I hope he does better than Pujols after the move.

Five years, $125 million. The Phillies were rumored three years, $80 million. I'm glad they didn't match that offer.

It's a high-risk, high-reward deal. The high reward is because, well, he's Josh Hamilton and he can hit like a moon monster when his head's in the game.

High risk, though, considering, well, he's Josh Hamilton and is an oft-injured heroin addict who has developed an additional addiction to swinging at breaking balls down and away.

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

Yeah. I think the consensus is people were fine with taking the risk for three years but less so for five. But the Angels don't really seem to have a budget, so they don't care so much.
