That is exactly the two month jump we needed to steal some games from the Yanks. Posada is old and not too much of a weapon any more, same goes with Jeter, and for the most part Matsui, Cano flopped last year and may not rebound, I have no idea who will replace ARod at 3B but there hitting ability certainly won't rival his, Tex is super stud, they have some rookie playing center field, and Damon will be Damon. That lineup does not strike fear. A foursome of Damon, Jeter, Tex, A-Rod....a little different story. I forgot about Nady, big deal, I think will manage. If C.C. and Burnett go on the DL, and Wang is not exactly a pillar of durability, they are done, again.

The guy is going to make over 500 million in two contracts, his wife divorced him during an affair scandal, he admitted to using steroids long after the issue was presented to the public (hiding in the shadows with his fingers crossed), sold out and of course went to play for the yankees, and IMO has the one of the most superficial personalities of anyone I have ever seen interviewed. I have no, and I mean absolutely no pity for the man, when he starts acting a little less like Steinbrenner and a lot more like Cal Ripken, Jr. then we can have this discussion.

Furthermore, he has hit 50+ HRs three times in his career, two of which came during an admitted steriod period and the other was in 2007, think he was juicing not so long ago....?

This is a non-threatening, minor, run-of-the-mill easily treatable condition.

If they drop in the standings, I say wallow in his misfortune.

It is? So they've ruled out the degenerative hip condition rumors that have been floating around? I haven't been paying close attention.

If you spend as much time with your foot in your mouth as Miss Pay-Fraud does, you will eventually wind up with hip problems. It's a simple law of nature! :laughlol:

And, after re-reading the Torre/Verducci book, I think you can make a good case for 2007 being an "enhanced" year for Miss Pay-Fraud. Probably sprinters' drugs rather than bulk drugs, but still, a good case could be made on the anecdotal evidence, IMO.

They haven't ruled out anything and the story isn't yet confirmed as true. So far there's nothing to suggest anyone is concerned in a major way.

    • Pinto was real close to being at the end of the list along with Rhodes and Armbruester. Pinto's size, his mediocre fastball (91-93), and the fact a lot of  his swing and miss were on chases on the slider or split change makes me want to see him prove it against Double-A pitching.  I was too aggressive with his ranking last year for sure.  Rhodes almost made it, but I just don't see the carrying tool that will allow him to be a starter. He's similar to Haskin and I just prefer Haskin a bit more because he's started to get to his game power a bit while Rhodes has never really shown game power. Rhodes does have better plate discipline and is a good defender on the corners with better speed than Haskin, but Haskin has performed ok at a higher level so he gets the nod for me. Saying that, they are very similar profile guys.
    • The MLB Network had a writer covering the Marlins on the other day and she mentioned Mullins for Lopez and seemed to indicate the Marlins may have to add someone else. I wonder if that is an even trade or if we have to add someone. It seems to me that trading for a young pitcher and signing a veteran would be the best use of our resources.
    • Asking here as honestly have no clue, is the Fan Cost Index sensitive to StubHub, Seatgeek, etc?     My guess is it uses the Clubs List Price, but like everything else in the world that's just the starting point of a negotiation. Now that the team is better and the kiddo old enough, will probably get back more next season, but know I'm behind on the most efficient consumer practices for any given day.     The Yard won't be as full as it'll get in a few years, so imagining surge pricing will only be taking baby steps in 2023.
    • I don't think we really disagree about much. There is wide array of ticket prices. And I think even Fan Price Index shows the Orioles being particularly fair, and if I recall correctly their family of four number for 2022 was $156 You're reading my comments as if they were directed at the Orioles. They were not. Nor were they a criticism, as much as an identification of one of the factors that is feeding the decline of generational popularity in baseball. Many of us have a love for the game. For me that love was cemented by two things. My Dad taking me to the ballpark as a kid... and my Little League experience as a kid.  Affordability was a big part of that. When I was a kid we didn't have two nickles to rub together. My father worked two jobs to make ends meet. Mom delivered newspapers to keep us ahead of the bills. But we could still afford to go to 33rd St a couple times a year... Saw Mark Belanger hit a home run...  that was a rare feat.. and I had a ratty old mitt and some fish-heads to play Little League with. I found old deposit bottles in the woods and took 'em to the 7-11 to buy baseball cards. That's where I fell in love with the game. Eventually my father built a very successful business. and we didn't have to worry about that kind of thing.. But I kept my love for the game that was built in those early experiences. Baseball was once literally the cost of a matinee movie...  stands were packed... all the time... but slowly.. generationally.. this has changed... the last generation to FULLY embrace baseball were boomers...  I guess there's a part of me that thinks selling out every game ...and families embracing is early might change the trajectory baseball is on... wishful thinking maybe      
    • The same thing happened in San Francisco when Roman was there.   They had one truly great season with Kaepernick, and then nothing.   Not that I'm comparing Lamar to Kaepernick, but at their best under Roman, they are pretty similar. I don't know if they are using this system because they think Lamar can't handle a more complex system, or because Roman is stuck using the same stuff over and over.    Roman needs to be gone regardless of what happens with Lamar.  They need to get rid of Ricard and start running a real pro-style offense.   
    • I guess I’ve reached the point of the off-season where I’m at do we really need to add a bat?  Stowers and Vavra spent the last 1/3 of the season up. Westburg is ready. Cowser could be ready are June.    Is Brantley, Voit, or Mancini worth even a one year deal?  I could see us rolling with what we have, figuring out what we have, and signing a vet depth bat like Jesus Aguilar to a milb deal with a ST invite. If we need a bat, we can always get a rental at the deadline.
