    But what about the fun factor? The stolen base attempt is one of the exciting plays in baseball. And what about the intagibility factor? The stolen base attempt, if successful, rattles the opposition more »

    I sort of like the Heyward idea.  Swihart for Jaso? What a bad idea! No way!  Bring up Swihart and he and Vaz can compete for playing time. Each can play half the time that first year anyway. We can t more »

    The strategy has been effective, for the Sox and the Yankees, in gettng into the bullpens of teams earlier in the game. Unfortunately, it's become a mannerism, and other teams have adjusted by getting more »

    Love Chili Davis!  Well, always loved the name anyway.

    I've heard Hugh and others on here speak of Lava's defense as just about the worst they've ever seen, but watching him play I myself have never seen any evidence of that, to me he looked like a passab more »

    Lava may finally get a shot and not amount to a hill of beans as a player; it just seems like an injustice that he's never had a real shot. Maybe Oakland will get Lava and give him the opportunity he more »

    Oh, do you mean the same baseball player experts who foisted Middlebrooks on us as our starting third baseman, and handed Carl Crawford the bank?  The ones who didn't think much of Moss, or those in T more »

    Last time I heard about Lava he was getting named MVP of the International League Playoffs about a month ago, and that coming off a hand injury. He was also named IL Defensive Player of the Year a cou more »

    I hated losing Miller and Lester.  But we got Rodriguez and Cespedes.  If we re-sign both Miller and Lester, will other teams cry foul?

    Lots of teams passed on Cruz, though maybe not so close a call.  Duquette scored there!

    Still have a feeling that if Lava gets a chance to play somewhere, as a 1b/C/Dh, where he gets in a full season of every day at-bats on the major league level, he'll be an asset.

    Have mixed feelings about the guy, he helped the team to the second ring, and he helped the team get a third ring by going away. With his talent, he should have been a hall of famer.

    With the money we have to spend, I'd very reluctantly part with Owens Betts Devers and Swihart in the right trade.  I'd rather trade Vaz than Swihart.  That may be a New Mexico bias as Swihart played more »

    Giving up good or great prospects (Betts, Swihart, Owens) for Hamels would be a mistake.  And look at those inter-league numbers Hamels has posted above! That alone should make one think twice.  If we more »

    I don't like trading 100 ribbies, we need offense, sign free agent pitchers Shields and Lester.

    Why trade Betts for a pitcher when there are terrific free agent pitchers costing only money out there?

    I pray they send Middy to AAA, or throw him in as a filler in a trade, p u he stinks. We'll probably sign Sandoval but Cecchini would be okay to try and spend the Sandoval money on SP instead, like bo more »
