    That's probably true. It'll be interesting to see what he fetches if dealt and I'm sure we'll compare it to the rumors from that time frame. Even then, we're working with the hindsight of his drop...

    Part of the issue is we really don't know what the value is or was at these various points. We can try to piece together quotes or stories or rumors, but we continually get reminded of how little we...

    Every team could use a 50+ HR hitter. Your rationale here relies on perfect 20-20 hindsight. Abreu wasn't a guaranteed 50+ HR hitter just hitting his prime when he signed or anything even close to...

    We must have different definitions of humiliation. If the owner can talk about the team, I don't see why the GM can't talk about players when warranted. Otherwise, it's just more generalities without...

    Definitely the root of the problem related to the recent struggles. I'm not so sure it can't happen for pitchers -- the Rangers are an example of being aggressive there.

    Expectations for Free Agent Starting Pitchers

    The incredibly wide range of current performance (both good and bad) from our four free agent starting pitchers got me thinking: what can we realistically expect from free agent pitchers?
