Adrian Beltre signed with the Rangers for five years plus one contract year. Hopefully, El Senator can turn the local economy around in 2016, until then don’t expect roads to be paved or new schools to open. “We just don’t have the funding right now for more than 17 home runs.” That’s Beltre next October talking to his constituents.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The 2011 fantasy baseball rankings are not as far away as you might think. Right now, January Grey is throwing darts at a board to figure out where to place Edwin Jackson. Exciting! In the meantime, let’s look at the players who have multiple position eligibility for this upcoming 2011 fantasy baseball season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The peasant Royals decided to send their big bargaining chip for three chips and a chip to be named later. This comes just days after Dayton Moore said Zack Greinke wasn’t happy and the Royals were going to trade him. This is like Ted Hughes saying Sylvia Plath wasn’t happy so he was going to cheat on her.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Cliff Lee not only signed with a team finally, he signed with the team that would give him the most value from the three rumored suitors. (BTW, Rumored Suitors would be an awesome R&B album title. If you’re reading Jodeci, take it, it’s yours.) Carlos Ruiz got a new battery mate and the Philly fans don’t have to throw batteries at anyone until at least 2013.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Seriously, it’s cool and all for fans of the Yankees and Red Sox but doesn’t Bud Selig in his infinitesimal wisdom see that maybe something needs to be done to level out the playing field? It’s all so short-sighted, kinda like how he turned a blind eye to steroids.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Mark Reynolds was traded to the Orioles for two bullpen arms. This hurts simply because I like to watch the Diamondbacks and don’t particularly enjoy watching the O’s. Sorry, Jim Palmer can’t hold a candle to Mark Grace. Reynolds and I had a bit of a love/hate thing the last two years.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Padres finally put their offense on the offensive. Only here the offensive definition is “causing anger, displeasure or resentment.” Thanks, Merriam-Webster! Adrian Gonzalez gets a small boost in value, if ‘small’ meant ‘could there be a better place for him to play?’ You don’t have to be a rocket scientist who gave up his job at JPL to study baseball stats to see the difference between Petco and Fenway.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I was in no rush to review the signing of Victor Martinez by the Detroit Tigers. No, it wasn’t all the tryptophan. Players going to a new club that won’t change their fantasy value doesn’t really float my boat. So let’s talk about what’s really on my mind, what a crock of shizz Paranormal Activity was.Please, blog, may I have some more?
After realizing the 20% off Bed, Bath & Beyond coupon wasn’t redeemable for slugging 2nd basemen, the Marlins parted ways with Dan Uggla. Now the Marlins have cut loose all the major objectors to Hanley Ramirez’s lack of hustle. “Yo, I walk with a pimp limp so I can save my energy for when MTV Cribs visits my house.” <– Not actual Hanley quote.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Are crazy. That’s continuing on the title. They are just nuts. Like the guy who stands on a milk crate carrying a giant sign about the apocalypse crazy. The room Bill James once shared with Chris Davis has a few new occupants.Please, blog, may I have some more?
