Cutch was an MVP winner in 2013, but that seems like a lifetime ago. How the mighty have fallen.

Hopefully the Nats don't get him.

Sale to the Red Sox, for Macanda, Kopech, Basabe and Diaz. Red Sox came in late and got the job done.



Eh, I really wanted Sale. But glad to still have Swanson, Albies, Newcomb, Allard and Anderson.

Nats trade 3 of their top 10 prospects for White Sox OF Adam Eaton. The White Sox have added 6 really good prospects at the Winter Meetings for Sale and Eaton. 6 of the 7 prospects they acquired are in their top 10-15 prospects.

Looking like the Braves of a couple years ago. Gonna be a rough couple of years for White Sox fans, but things will pan out.

Indeed. Also seems they've been taking notes from the Cubs Front Office. Talk about irony... :lol:

Yankees pay 86 mill over 5 yrs to bring back Chapman. I think they will regret that after a season or two.

Terrible deal. That goes for all these teams paying closers $80 mil+. If you only work one inning at a time you're just not worth $20 mil+ per year, period.

The numbers are in for Dexter Fowler’s new contract with the St. Louis Cardinals, and they’re big. According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, it’s a five-year, $82.5 million contract, with a full no-trade clause. http://sports.yahoo.com/news/dexter-fowler-bet-on-himself-and-won-big-with-82-5m-cardinals-deal-174135931.html

Getting the Cubs back for snatching Jason Heyward from them last winter. Of course, it might be in their favor that Chicago's paying mega-millions to an offensively challenged outfielder.

One thing I don't get is why Minnesota is trying to trade Brian Dozier - considering he's got a cheap contract and had an amazing second half of the season. He's 29 - not like hes into his 30's. I wonder if he could play 3B. If yes, I'd try to put together a package for him.

He's played 2b and SS for the Twins. He played about 25 games at 3b through out his minors career. I wouldn't see why he couldn't make the transition.

Pardons to everyone else, but Nemesis, what happened between the post above from December 15th and today that caused you to send me 2 nasty PM's today? I'll delete this if you say we're ok.

Nasty? Far from Nasty, you asked so I told you. Like this right here is an example, instead of talking about it in a pm like you know you should, you quote me in a thread to get me to respond. I was at work I was going to get back to your pm. Now you want to make it public so here we go. :nonono:

Tim Raines and Jeff Bagwell finally get into the HOF!!!!!


:clap: :rockon: :beer:



Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez will be joining them. All 3 players well deserve this.


Hoffman and Vlad just missed getting in, Hoffman needed 5 more votes and Vlad 15. I could see Hoffman and Vlad getting in next year, along with Chipper, Thome and Vizquel.
