School of Roch: Room for improvements
Any suggestions to add?
Camden Depot: The Pros and Cons of Signing Kendrys Morales
I still fail to see any 'pro' about such a signing. I view DH more and more like I view the Closer: fill it from within with spare parts platooned together and spend the money elsewhere.
Unless the trade involves Giancarlo Stanton, I hope so.
One of my favorite sayings as a wee tyke was that 'Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades'.
A summation of how the AL's various defenses have improved or not so far this off-season.
Cue groaning about player salaries in the comments section to the effect of 'I like him but not at that price'. Then my response is you like watching an 82 win team. Go for the gusto, HBGM! It's only money.
Hadn't considered it before, but is David DeJesus really the 2nd best LFer in the ALE right now? Geez...
How Paul Blair ended up an Oriole.
More tributes to Mr. Blair.
On this date in 2010, the O's signed Derrek Lee. It didn't work out too well. C'est la vie. Also in 2010, a shooting incident in the Dominican Republic later leads to Alfredo Simon being imprisoned for 2 months before charges were ultimately dropped against him. So, lesson to be learned: don't go firing off guns on New Year's Eve, Chatters. Bullets that go up, must come down. It's simple physics, really.
