Oakland A's evidently knocking on Tanaka's door.

http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/10...2014-announced

Quote:
NEW YORK -- Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas were elected to baseball's Hall of Fame on Wednesday while Craig Biggio fell two votes short and tainted stars of the steroid era remained far behind.

Maddux was picked on 555 of 571 ballots by senior members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America. His 97.2 percentage was the eighth highest in the history of voting.

Glavine, Maddux's longtime teammate in the Atlanta rotation, appeared on 525 ballots and received 91.9 percent. Thomas, the first Hall of Famer who spent the majority of his career as a designated hitter, received 483 votes.

The trio will be inducted in Cooperstown on July 27 along with managers Bobby Cox, Joe Torre and Tony La Russa, elected last month by the expansion-era committee. Maddux and Glavine played under Cox for most of their careers.

"It's exciting for me to go in with my teammate," Maddux said.

Writers had not elected three players in one vote since Nolan Ryan, George Brett and Robin Yount in 1999.

Biggio received 427 votes and 74.8 percent, matching Nellie Fox in 1985 and Pie Traynor in 1947 for the smallest margin to just miss. Biggio appeared on 388 ballots in his initial appearance last year and appears to be on track to gain election next year.
Bonds and Clemens with less percentages of the vote than last year? Boo.

BIG HURT

Three deserving baseball players enshrined. I'm actually pro Bonds getting into the Hall, but fuck Clemens.

Biggio camp gaining ground too so that's cool.

After doing a little bit of research I have come to discover that

Barry Bonds and Greg Maddux were one another's most comment opponent in each of their careers. In 157 career plate appearances, Bonds hit .265/.376/.508 with 16 strikeouts, 24 walks, and 9 home runs off of Maddux.

Second-most common batter vs. Maddux? Craig Biggio.

Second-most common pitcher vs. Bonds? Tom Glavine.

Giants need to go rogue and retire Barry's number and start working on the statue, which they can make into a kind of Colossus of San Francisco over China Basin's McCovey Cove, giving Bud Selig and the BBWAA the finger.

Times are slow...

Masahiro Tanaka is in the United States meeting with teams.

Quote:
The Dodgers, Angels, Cubs, White Sox, Yankees and Diamondbacks all have meetings set. The Blue Jays have also had multiple conversations with Tanaka's camp already, he adds, but it's unclear if they have a face-to-face meeting set in Los Angeles. Heyman reports that Tanaka began meetings yesterday and could meet with five to six teams per day.
...According to Heyman

Where do you guys see him ending up? And is he the next Dice-K or Yu Darvish?

My Pick: Angels or Diamondbacks

Pirates' Pitching Coach Expects Burnett To Retire


Quote:
"I'm on the percentage point where he's not going to come back. I've got to prepare my guys with no A.J. I've got to prepare the pitching with no A.J. So that's the route I'm going. If he does come back -- hey, all right! But right now, I'm leaning that way, where he's going to retire."
...According to Ray Searage

Indians Sign Jeff Francoeur

Quote:
Francoeur gets $1MM if he makes the team with a chance to make $500K more based on plate appearances
