The Dodgers have signed Andre Ethier to a 5 year/85 million dollar contract extension.

Twins sign #2 Overall pick Byrun Buxton.

Default Re: MLB Thread 2012

A couple things about the season(mostly west since I watch more of it)
  • Headley to the Dodgers makes a lot of sense. He's a good player, a borderline all-star. Padres have a ton of depth behind Headley, and while he's a popular player, losing him won't set the franchise back at all.
  • Yonder Alonso is pretty bad at 1b. He's having the most trouble receiving throws, but he needs to develop better instincts on balls to his left too. His swing will play well at Petco, even though the stats don't reflect that. He's struck the ball well for most of the year. I like him, a lot.
  • The Marlins could really use a player like Gerardo Parra. However, I don't think I'd pay close to the price the dbags were rumored to ask for. He's arb-eligible this year with, unsurprisingly, better power numbers at home. His real value lies in his OF defense, plus arm with great range. Piecing together a package of players from the Marlins system would be a challenge.
  • The Dodgers will make the playoffs. Their pitching is too good. Even though Mattingly only trusts a handful of guys (Jansen, Lindblom, Belisario lately) the bullpen is strong. Eovaldi and Ely stashed away give them a bit of insurance if(when) Capuano goes down. They'd have to make a move to get Ely on the 40-man, but that's not much of a problem. Fife would be the first to go. He's awfully close to being a failed starter turned reliever. In other words, he sucks.
  • Interested to see what trades the Rangers make. Teams should be tempting them with reasonable 2 for 1 deals (Adams for Weiland/Erlin) to get in front of the rule 5 draft. I'm not suggesting Texas makes poor trades, but roster flexibility in November might push a 'maybe' trade offer to an acceptable one.
  • Hopefully, Sciosia abandons his stupid loyalty to veterans once Wells returns. For all of the success he's had in Anaheim, this has been a constant criticism of him.
  • This might be the year the Twins finally fire Gardenhire. Good riddance. What he's known for: Nick Blackburn's biggest fan, putting his relievers in situations they were more likely to fail, fooling plenty of fans into believing his genius maneuvered the small market twins to the playoffs. Those twins teams were as talented as anyone, but the Yankees were the worst matchup for them.

Blue Jays just released Vladimir Guererro.

Apparently, the Blue Jays and Vlad had a deadline for him to be called up to the majors, and that deadline was on Sunday (the 10th), but was moved to the 11th (yesterday) because he missed one game. Anyway, they never called him up, so he left the minor league team yesterday and told the Blue Jays he wasn't going to go back to the Minors, so they could either call him up or release him..guess they decided to release him. He was tearing up Triple A.

Maybe the Pirates could sign Vlad? Lord knows we need a bat.

Yup, not to mention Las Vegas, which is the biggest hitter friendly park in Triple A. Still, Vlad can still hit, I agree with Jail, maybe the Pirates can sign him, he's a major defensive liability though

I'd imagine he's only an option for AL teams.

Cutch should help minimize some of Vlads weakness in the OF with his range. RF in PNC shouldnt be too difficult for him. Not like Garrett Jones is a great defender either and his bat is enough to get play time

Chase Utley went 0-5 with 3 K's in his first rehab start for High A and was getting boo'd by the crowd by the end of the game.
