    Do you see any additional free agent signings? Sees to be a lot of interesting pitchers still available.

    People talk about Adam Brett Walker having continued strikeout issues (which hampers his ranking status) - but I question you guys:

    How many Minor League players or MLB players (in 2013) had a K rate of 21% (20.8%) or less and hit at least 25 HRs? I think his production based on that fact alone should place him higher on the ranking list. Please discuss your thoughts on the matter.........

    It wasn't his (Walker) lack of contact, but his lack of luck with BABIP. Polanco didn't walk much either (11 more times than Walker), but had better average and OBP because that.

    Of the Top 30 HR hitters in MLB last year - 15 had higher K rate than 21%
    Would you take any of these guys:
    Chris Davis 30% - .370 OBP
    Pedrto Alverez 30% - .296 OBP
    Mark Trumbo 27% - .294 OBP
    Evan Longoria 23.4% - .343 OBP
    Brandon Moss 27% - .337 OBP
    Jay Bruce 27% - .329 OBP
    Chris Carter 36% - .320 OBP
    Nelson Cruz 24% - .327 OBP
    Justin Upson 25% - .354 OBP
    Yoenis Cespedes 24% - .294 OBP
    Adam Jones 20% - .318 OBP
    Former Twin JJ Hardy Strikes out at an 11% rate but has a .306 OBP (go figure)

    Hmmm.. that's interesting that it wasn't viewable. It appears that there is audio/video the whole time now. It is taking longer to upload to my page than normal, so it won't be on iTunes until tomorrow.

    Enjoyed the show, dudes. Technical issues made the last 20 minutes or so pretty brutal, as I couldn't understand anything that Robot Jeremy was saying. But the rest was great. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the team once Spring Training begins.
