Feel better, the Yankees are reportedly close with Brian Roberts as well. Yep, that one from the O's, that hasn't played a full season since 2009...
Apparently the Yankees think they've discovered a time portal to 2005.

Finished it up, 1 year, 2M plus incentives.

In 2005, this would have been a dream team. Unfortunately, it's 9 years later, and PEDs are mostly out of the picture, so being 48 years old no longer equates to hitting .340 and 93 HRs...

That's how the Mariners used to do things. They'd sign someone to be their big splash and then talk about his stats from 5 years ago.

The Jays sign Tomo Ohka...yes that Tomo Ohka...and he's trying to become a knuckleballer...

We are so screwed.

Re: MLB Offseason 2013-2014

If the Mariners sign Choo, I seriously might consider following them instead of the Rockies. I like some of the moves they've made this off season, especially compared to the Rockies' lackluster attempts to improve.

Youlkilis and Scott both heading overseas to play. The Yankees couldn't use a old DH?

I imagine they'll be platooning Soriano and the corpse of Ichiro / Wells (whichever one they can't dump for a box of baseballs), along with using it to spell Beltran when he needs a day off to rest his knees.

Plus Jeter, maybe Arod, and like 5 others too old to play the field.

Re: MLB Offseason 2013-2014

Measuring Mussina purely on wins in the exact same sentence as calling saves an overrated stat is intellectual dishonesty on a ridiculous level, to say nothing of this gem:

The numbers are obvious. Thomas hit 521 homers, same as Ted Williams and Willie McCovey. Glavine and Maddux were 300-game winners. Those are magic plateaus . . . unless you cheated.
Then judging Biggio for having only one 200-hit season, but ignoring 3,000 for career.

Get fucked, Shaughnessy.
