re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

TROUT and Harper are the rookies of the year. This was obvious.

YU finished 3rd behind Cespedes. That's how I would've ranked the rookies too.

The Marlins and Blue Jays trade would already be vetoed if this were a fantasy league.

Bears - Bulls - Braves - Blackhawks - Bulldogs - America

#Marlins opened season with a payroll of roughly $100MM. After this trade, non-arb 2013 obligations will be ~ $16MM. Historic salary dump.

You know, what's making me laugh even harder is the realization that the Dodgers would have been able to make this trade with the Marlins... had they not already done the Adrian Gonzalez deal with the Red Sox.

In essence, the Dodgers actually committed more money for more years for crappier players than they could have received from the Marlins had they simply waited until mid-November.

Go, Agent Ned! Do your work!



As for the Marlins, this is just the latest piece of evidence in the case of the prosecution that Jeffrey Loria is the Single Worst Professional Sports Franchise Owner on Earth.

Here's some more:

Marlins Park financing:

Miami-Dade County $376.3 million
City of Miami $132.5 million [a]
Miami Marlins $125.2 million
Cost $634 million

As one story notes, "Meanwhile, word spread about expensive commissions for works by some of Loria’s favorite artists inside the new stadium, including $2.5 million taken from the county’s Art in Public Places department for a Red Grooms sculpture behind center field."

The prosecution rests.

Torii Hunter might sign with Detroit, wonder how much he'll get.

Edit: So happy that TROUT got ROY, well deserve.


MVP

NICE.
It looks like Arencibia is going to Miami, but yeah that's a mean lineup regardless. If Lind can get it going, many runs will be scored. Having someone like Rajai Davis in there somewhere is even more speed.

Where is EDWIN though?
