Forum Post: Mariners starting to put together a decent looking team.
Posted 12/13/2013 11:34:15 EST
The Mariners are still not a very good team at all. They were 71-91, but they had an expected win-loss of 67-95 based on their run differential. I think their best-case scenario this year is about more »

It's really odd that you are concerned about a Red Sox player possibly going to the Yankees in a half a decade+ from now.

Over the last three years: Player A: .279/.315./.444 Player B: .252/.329/.441 Player A is AJ. Player B is Brian McCann. Now, I know McCann is younger and is probably a safer bet to produce bet more »

I am not trying to be snarky, but I seriously think the people who worship the defense of Iglesias just don't watch a ton of baseball. In addition to Simmons of Atlanta, Brendan Ryan also makes plays more »

Iglesias' defense is overrated. Yes, he's excellent with the glove. But this notion this he's an all-time great defender is a bit premature. In fact, he's probably not even the best defensive shortsto more »

I think the Sox will win this in 4. I think people are either vastly overrating Tampa's pitching or vastly underrating Boston's. For all of this talk about Tampa's great pitching, as a team they allow more »

Maybe Gonzalez does bounce back, but it is possible he goes the way of Mark Teixeira. When Texeira was first brought on with the Yankees in 2009, he had a monster year, posting a .948 OPS. His OPS in more »
