It's really no coincidence that Longoria's contract with TB basically ends the same time A-Rod will probably be done. I will want to be killing somebody the day Longoria signs with the Yankees.

Yankees are no longer just in the business of buying every free agent on the market, ever since George died and his sons took over. They set an edict that the Yankees will be under the cap by 2014.

I wouldn't worry about it. The Rays seem to be good at locking up their players through their entire prime. How old is Longoria going to be when he's a free agent? 28 or 29? I wouldn't want to give him a huge 7 year deal at that point even if I had the money. The Rays are getting the best years out of their major players and letting them go afterwards. Draft well, sign them through their late 20's, let them walk and restart the cycle. Big emphasis on the "draft well" part now that the Rays won't be getting top 5 picks.

Mariano saying he's going to come back after he's healed. Mariano: "I'm coming back. Write it down in big letters. I'm not going out like this."

It'll be interesting to see if he can do it at his age. He deserves to go out on his terms, on the mound, and not in a freak accident in the outfield.

Chris Sale has a tender elbow...so the White Sox decide to put him at closer so he can pitch 3-4 times a week?

His mechanics/delivery were the main concern with him before the draft. Most teams saw him as a reliever because of that. Not surprised.

Just when JJ strings together a couple of decent starts he goes out there and looks like trash again, though Stanton certainly didn't help with his play on the ball hit by Bass.

Rays with another win. 19-8 on the season. 13-1 at home. Have won 12 of their last 13. On a roll!




Did anyone see all of the terribly missed calls in the Nats/Phillies game? All b/c one of the crew members was sick so they didn't have an ump on 3rd base. That's retarded. There's no back-up guy with each crew? There were so many missed calls.

Question now is: does he deserve a spot on the Yankee Mt Rushmore?

Maybe if you did a separate one for pitchers. As great as Rivera is/was, I just have a hard time putting a closer ahead of Ruth, DiMaggio, Mantle, and Gehrig.

I hate the fact that Gio is on a division rival now. He was probably my favorite player in Oakland and now he's having a tremendous year so far in Washington. Everyone figured a move to the NL would benefit him, but not to the point of a 1.72 ERA, 41 K, and .90 WHIP in his first six starts. Obviously those numbers are going to go up as the season goes on, but that pitching in Washington is doing way better than most expected I think.
