    Suzuki won't fetch much, honestly, while he's had an All-star three months of play, his track record netted his current deal. St. Louis is a great fit and I'd target a guy like Grichuk and settle...

    The reason Fielder or Mauer (etc.) is prohibitive is because of the cost of their contract, which can be handled w cash. The reason Nick Blackburn is prohibitive is because he's awful at baseball,...

    My criticism is with Cameron's notion of trade-value. The distinction is meaningful in that, the Tigers could not have simply gave Texas cash (or cash and some other player) for Kinsler. Fielder is...

    Of course a team believes a player they sign will continue to produce. That said, the exact terms of a contract are arrived through a bidding war, a bidding war that often is won through length of...

    Contracts (oh yes, foolishly) are about what you have done, and not what you will do.

    I give you the season preceding Mauer's contract: .365/.444/.587/1.031 171 (OPS+) 7.8/6.2 (BR/FG WAR)

    Morales is like Pelfrey? Morales is like 2011 Overbay (who was 34 that year)? Why not bring up Rondell White? Morales has more consistent track record than either Liriano, Martin, or Pelfrey. The...

    Let's make it clear, if the Twins win, it won't be because they relied on their clubhouse culture or because they signed a 30-year old 2-3WAR player for ten million bucks a year, it will be because...

    I think this is probably a bit unfair to the likes of Morales, Willingham; not everyone wishes to maximize they're pay through employment, it's pretty common for workplace conditions to factor in to...

    Teams that give unproven players 1000 of at bats to prove themselves lose. There seems to be an assumption that players like Vargas and Pinto will prove themselves, and will be equal or better than...

    Even though we're not winning, per se, the team is doing better. That a veteran in Morales, and frankly lots of others, expresses such adoration for the club suggests something about our culture...

    Thanks for the correction and the story. I kept thinking that I've always gotten the spelling of the A's GM's name wrong. Mea Culpa/My Bad (It's a good story, and I was too excited to post it). In...

    On paper, it's a good call. Culture actually matters in sports (and I believe in all organizational structures). We can't put it on paper (sorry positivists), but keeping the fans semi-interested,...
  16. MLB names Billy Bean as Ambassador to LGBT inclusion

    Major League Baseball* announced, using the All-star stage (or shade?), that they have designated Billy Bean to prepare the sport for LGBT athletes and employees. Bean sounds like a class act.

    My friends: Justin Morneau, class act.

    I, for one, felt very rewarded by Justin's return to Target Field.

    Justin had the opportunity to explain his mutual respect for Twins fans; he describes his reception from the crowd as moment...

    My view: one in hand (Morales) is worth two in the bush (Vargas, Pinto). The truth is you can have all three, and they'll be need for each. I'd extend Morales on two notions: 1) that he can...
