  1. Urrutia's numbers look good compared to the OF the dodgers just signed for 42 million. Great sign for 780K!! ESPN - The 6-foot-3, 250 pound Puig was considered the fastest player in Cuba and the top prospect in the country's premier league. He batted .330 with 17 home runs, 47 RBIs and 78 runs scored in 327 at-bats with the Cienfuegos Elefantes in the 2010-11 season.
  2. I can see AM wanting Black - Selected by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the first round (49th overall) of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft. I would pay all of lee's salary to get Black.....
  3. Vicore Black would be a great pickup. Great FB very lucky to get Black...douibtfull Would be a top 10-12 in our system
  4. 100% correct our 2nd round pick will not be 1st round talent even in this deep draft.
  5. Best news today!! Take away his 2009 and he is average at best... Will not be type A next year anyone want to bet?
  6. Hopefully this is true and the names are changing! 2:38pm: No deal is imminent and the names vary, tweets MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli. The Rays want Reimold and Alfredo Simon for Bartlett, tweets Connolly.
  7. He has plenty of suitors and most in the industry believe that he will sign with the Philadelphia Phillies, who are very much interested in the big lefty. Sherrill was signed out of the independent leagues by Charley Kerfeld, a special assistant to Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. Kerfeld and Sherrill remain friends. The Phillies also need left-handed bullpen help and give Sherrill the best opportunity to get back to the playoffs. Sherrill has strong and positive feelings for the Orioles organization. I'm not sure they are strong enough to overcome the Phillies' other advantages. http://weblogs.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/blog/2010/12/orioles_in_the_running_for_she.html
  8. Agree 100% outside Bartlett will never ever approach 2009 again. He very well may never approach a 700 OPS with average to poor defense next year. He will not be a type A and will be very lucky to be a tpye B
  9. 100% agree... Tampa can keep a declining Bartlett and his 6M! Sign LaRoach and bring back Izzy for 1 year 2.5M
  10. Agree 100% No way this is a good deal. FO should just put a sign Free Reimold while it lasts!
  11. I rather have Izzy, 3 million we save on salary and Riemold than 1 year of a declining Bartlett at 6 million.
  12. Thanks.... Just dreaming... Point is Tampa has a deep 20 and any player we could back in their Top 15-20 would clearly make this a better deal.
  13. You are right 2011 has not come out, most pubs have him around 9-12 Love to get the guy Remiold and Simon for Bartlett and McGee?
  14. Agree 100% but they do have some top 20 guys that would work Jake McGee, LHP, Grade C+: He was horrible coming back from Tommy John, and as a result it's hard to rank him. Could get back into the Top Ten easily Nick Barnese, RHP, Grade B-: Durability may be an issue, but I've liked him since he was in high school. Might not have the ceiling of the other guys, but could be a good four/five if he stays healthy.
  15. Yea I agree but I would take anyone of Tampa's top 8 and Bartlett for Remiold. They have a deep system
