This would be asinine. What do you think you are rooting for? After the most miserable season in a decade, winning or now would mean nothing, and would accomplish nothing positive. After such a mise more »

Come on! This is an interesting article. You can't possibly mean that you found no info that you did not know!

@Rodalex, It is fair to say that the Extra Bases section has gone real down the last couple of weeks. There very little redeeming in it. Many, me included (and probably OMCL), have been coming here f more »

Lavarnway is major-league ready backups catcher? "They should do Lavarnway a favor and trade him." They have been trying to do just that for a few months. I am afraid he has very little trade valu more »

It seems they can't win. If he doesn't, somebody will knock him for trying to hide the relationship. He is trying to do the right things and provide proper disclosure. Assume that some people may n more »

Enough already. This is a silly argument. He is not your average DH. Plenty of teams will bid for him on the open market.
Posted 03/21/2014 04:36:25 EDT
Not to mention that you cannot structure incentives based on records - plate appearance, games played, etc. is ok, but not average and RBIs.

Tired arm in April?

Doubtful. There are easier ways to get a plane.
But, maybe as good as any theory (all these proposed theories have their problems).

He is 19. What is his father going to do now?
Too late. There was a time for that.
Posted 03/16/2014 11:39:26 EDT
Exactly! Not to mention how naive he is to think that he is actually making tons of money. The bonus is as good as gone in a few years if he could not make it to the majors. After that, his earning more »

- For some people, the economy will ALWAYS be in the tank. - Unemployment is back in the 6.x % levels - not great, not horrible. And, there will always be people who give up looking for a job. And th more »

@tomahawkchopper, August is a long way, and plenty of time to bring a veteran option if you decide that you need it. more »

It is a major league deal. No need for opt-out. I know we are all in a positive mood these days, and rightfully so after the WS, but this is crowding and already crowded pitching staff and leaves no r more »

Of course you can. There are only 25 roster spots.
Posted 02/19/2014 07:40:41 EST
You are out of your mind! It is sad that when a player is actually showing loyalty to a team, some people in this region treats it like he is lucky to be offered a job. more »

@vbcpa, You probably have been saying that for years. At some point you will be right. As for now, there no proof that he could not keep it up for the next 2+ years. more »

Ortiz made nowhere close to $200M. Get your math right. more »

If you are picking players for this year, he would not the 61st player picked. This certainly makes him a bargain. As far as negotiating with themselves, you can take advantage of good for so much wil more »

If he can't cover RF, he certainly won't be able to cover CF. And, they certainly don't need another left fielder, do they?

Pete? Is that you? more »

He can't help it is he is asked about it. And it happened every year because he has been on short terrm contracts (or end of a contract) since 2009.
Posted 02/04/2014 03:12:02 EST
You are right. Unfortunately, it is what happened to all news, not just sports. There is a lot more money to be made by having a schtick, rather than dealing with reason and rational discussions. more »
