If I'm moving for a 2B, I'd prefer Kinsler to BP. Especially knowing the jam they have with Profar and Andrus.

Nowitness: Thoughts on interest for Choo over Ellsbury. I'd wet my pants if Ells brought his metro beard to Arlington.

I think you're right, they have the talent to deal for a top level starter (Price).

Teheran is good just not ace yet like romedadude said he's not like Harvey plus Teheran is coming off his first full mlb season he has time develop

Id give a package deal starting with A. Simmons plus others to get King Felix I wouldn't do it for David Price though. Even if Simmons is a great talent Braves need an Ace.

What is shocking is that he got a guaranteed two year deal, eek.gif ... laugh.gif

Colletti goes out and gets Brendan Harris, mean.gif

You knew Colletti wouldn't be able to get out of his own way, though.

The $10M per range deals for Edwin Jackson and Kuroda look like bargains compared to the current market.

Lincecum, Hudson. What Santana and Nolasco want.

i think they're pretty comfortable with Martin in center and want corner bats...

If Nellie is back, it's probably as a strict DH and sport starter in a corner... Put Choo in LF with Martin in center and Rios in right. Sign McCann behind the plate and you're pretty damn salty.

I don't love Choo but he would tear it up in the Ballpark.

This dude. I remember back in '95 when I was 10 years old watching him thinking he was so cool. I don't know why, but he was one of my favorite Twins and disappointed. To see him now heading into his 19th season is phenomenal. His switch to the bullpen certainly helped. Solid career.

That reminds me of players I root for that don't pan out. Loved Colon in Cleveland, glad he had a successful career. Manny Aybar, not so much. Jimenez also. Don't ask me why I rooted for those guys.

Carlos Gomez was in the wasted potential category until recently. I fear for Ackley. Dom worried me some. BJ Upton is troubling me now. He looks finished.

Carlos Gomez was a guy I wanted the Nats to trade for forever, just because I love how he celebrates literally everything he does. Would make Braves games even more interesting pimp.gif

Jayz and Cano had lunch with the Wilpons to "discuss: business.
http://espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/story/_/id/9999407/robinson-cano-subject-meeting-new-york-mets-jay-z

This is a joke, and a ploy. J**** man, I can see right thru you. He's simply trying to get the Yankees to fall for the ridiculous demand of $300Million for Cano.
You know the Mets and Alderson wont come close to spending that much cheese on 1 rat. Theyr'e too smart for that.

Beltran and Boras played the Astros to get a larger deal from the Mets. It is business, get over it.

Why the hostility? Im not over it because I was never under it to begin with. I was just saying it was a waste of time for the Mets brass to sit with them.

If Cano and Jay-Z approached them, why wouldn't they go sit with them?

If the Mets know Cano is asking for X amount of dollars, and they are only willing to spend less than X, it seems like a waste of time.
I guess they at least wanted to hear Mr.Carter spew a few bars.

Exactly. Which (for now) doesn't seem to be working. It's a whole cluster **** of a situation. Jay is either going to make him rich or make him hated. The guy dumped Boras because he was refusing to sit down with Cashman and Levine + throwing out extremely high contract numbers. He looks like a huge hypocrite right now.

Still no excuse for the papers to be killing him laugh.gif
post #18080 of 77343
I don't blame any player for trying to maximize his worth, however, he needs to realize what his worth is.

The numbers Cano is throwing out there, laugh.gif, is basically him not realizing what his actual worth is.

He has incredible offensive numbers, but plays in a hitters park and doesn't play a premium defensive position. No one is dropping major dough on a second baseman. Should've asked for a bit more than what Pedroia got from the Red Sox.

Also, there is no market for him. Tried to drag the Dodgers into it, they gave him a courtesy meeting, they tried to drum up that rumor and then Guerrero gets signed. Simply because if you are going to drop over $200 mil, why drop it on a second baseman already on his 30's as opposed to your two time Cy Young winner that is still in his mid-20's.

I just don't see the market, Yankees should put out a number and let him find a better deal.

For those wondering Pedroia got an 8 year/$110 million deal from the Red Sox that kicks in next season. Yanks should offer 6 years $125 mil.

The $310mil was to forgo FA.

But there's really not a huge market for Cano because teams know they have to outbid the Yankees by a lot to steal Cano. And if Yankees are willing to go $180 for 7. There's really not much room for any team to go. You'd have to go over $200 for 7 years.

When it's all said and done I wonder where Cano ends up and for how much.

I'm not a Rangers fan but I'm familiar with David Murphy. He's a solid average major league player. Had the worst year of his career this past season. Has great lifetime numbers against righties. Probably more of a very solid platoon player than an everyday player.

A-Rod walked out of his hearing after the arbitrator said that Selig doesn't have to testify. His lawyers are filing a complaint against MLB.

A-Rod walked out the meeting then went straight to a press conf with a reading off a paper that expressed his disapproval. This is so rehearsed.

Was researching bad, long contracts for work last night.

Hampton, Sori, Utley, Pujols, A-Rod, Prince. List goes on.
