Predict Sox Yanks and Jays #s 1-2-3 in the division but can't say in what order. If Tanaka goes Cy Young Yanks will finish first. Nats will finish with best record overall and flop again in the post-s more »

Not much of a Farrell fan either, but prefer his demeanor to Francona's. Managers, in general, are over-rated. There are just so many standard and obvious moves to make in the course of a game. So muc more »

The main reason Betts will get plenty of playing time is that Hanley and Vic will be on and off the DL thoughout the season.

Hill makes some good points. One can't say with any certainty at all how either of these guys will perform as major league backstops.

Tough call sp; favor Swihart right now, but have a wait & see attitude.

Spring training will answer some questions, and April will too. Vic and Craig in particular. Believer in Castillo and Betts, but also have doubts about injury-prone Rameriz. If Vic and Ramierez can pl more »

Funny Obama bashers! This from the folks who voted (count it: twice) for Bush2, an intellectual peanut and an international disgrace.
Smart signing for the Yanks imho.

Don't get the Masterson signing, we could have done much better.

Ridiculous. Moon is the least narcissitic of posters. He is the life of the board. Amazing and revelatory stats. Ignore this nonsense, Moon. I like the Breslow signing. Think he'll rebound, but if not more »

5 and Moon, with all due respect, you both over-value Iggy, IMHO. His forte is the sensational play. He makes errors at more or less the same rate as any old shortstop, and his offense is not scary. T more »

It means it just got a little harder to become a major league ball player.
Parenthetically: great stuff, Moon, thoughout this thread.

As much as we need a top pitcher, I wouldn't trade for Hamels. I don't want to give up what it would take to get him (Owens Swihart), and I'm not even 85% confident he would do well here.

Can't underestimate the value of defense after watching KCs run last season.

An ace is Kershaw, Scherzer, Bumgarner, Tanaka, off the top of my head, guys who basically dominate virtually every time they take the hill, and there are no where near 30 of them in all of baseball. more »

Miley had a good year three seasons ago, and it's been all downhill since. Can't say I like the trade. He gives you innings but maybe you don't want him to give you innings because he's also giving th more »
