    I read an article that says Cederoth wants seven figures. Someone else here may have better info, but if that's right, given that slot is 700k, we'll need to free up a lot more than most of Cutura's...

    Count me in the happy third. I'm all for BPA, but when it's not clear who that it--i.e. it's essntailly tied--then take whoever is part of that tie that fills the biggest need. And looking ahead,...

    "What they could use: better starting pitching; more offensive threats."

    Sounds a bit like the parent club. :)

    DO 10 and 5 rights have any real meaning when you already have a no-trade contract?

    This is a spectacular article. I wish there were a way to pin it to the front page of TD because it is the answer to people who keep asking why so and so hasn't been promoted given that his...

    I think the Twins were quoted as saying he'd start in Ft Myers to work the rust off and they'd put him in AA once the rust is all gone.

    Given his history, signability becomes a concern at that point--if not earlier.

    Problem is none of the stats quoted in this thread really address the key question: Does he have a hole in his swing that major league pitchers are good enought to exploit and minor league (or at...

    THe actual Rock Cats score was 11-1, and the actual Red Wings score was 7-0. The scores shown above were presumably left over from the prior day, although the narrative is, of course, current.

    Thanks. I was going to write that, but you said it far more clearly than I would have. But as long as we're on this derailed thread, granted that interstate commerce includes almost everything, do...

    I lived in both Davenport and Des Moines, IA. Davenport is very much a National League city, with the vast majority of allegiance being to the Cubs, and most of the rest to the Cards. Not much...

    Seth, I don't know anything about Kenny Wilson other than what you just told us. But I'm struggling to reconcile your "blessed with a lot of talent" phrase with everything you wrote after that. ...

    Doubt he'll be able to help the 2013 lineup/results. ;)

    Depends on what we're offered for him. No way to answer without having some feel for that. But IMO, the only untouchables on the 25 man...

    FWIW, JOhnson has a statute at the Nationals' ballpark. DC has had a few franchises here, and the focus is on guys who played here regardless of which franchise it was. I don't know of any reason...

    I'm with you, JC. WHile I don't think that Deduno will be part of that starting rotation, age 31 is not old for a reliever, He could well have 5 or 6 years left, maybe even more, and great teams...

    He was a total failure as a starter in AA. He was moved to relief, and blossomed. No reason to think he'd be any better as a starter now than he was before, and even if he did improve, he has...

    Not sure that's true for Buxton. To me, he was looking a bit lost against major league pitching. And that's entirely fair for a 20 YO guy who's never played AA. So putting him back someplace where...

    I REALLY hope you're wrong and that Kubel/Bartlett don't have guaranteed jobs. But the bigger question is who in their right mind is walking Butera all the time? And will any pitcher doing that...

    Deduno isn't a control artist. His command is well below average. So he walks people, and he can't consistently put pitches where the hitter can't get it, and thus fewer swinging strikes. That...

    From my observations, the problem with Worley is pretty clear: His stuff doesn't play unless he keeps the ball at the knees. He was doing that in Philly, but since he came over here, he has not.

    I had exactly the same reaction. But my first instinct was that it might be a bit of a misquote. From the rest of the quote, I can imagine Gardy joking around with Berardino about how mcuh he likes...
