re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

I highly doubt Boston does anything major. They're retooling internally. They just shed all their salary. Shell shock probably keeps them quiet. Baltimore? Who do they have even have that have proven anything before this year?

Drabek, Hutchinson and Morrow all went down in a matter of a week.

Jays pitching was fine until injuries set in. Romero was still winning at that point too (even though still not pitching great).

They have options for 5 (Cecil, Rogers, Villanueva, Happ, etc) or they may look externally

Morrow tore an oblique muscle. He was pitching extremely well prior to his injury. I believe he's signed to big money himself.

Red Sox pitching was terrible last year, pretty much the only positive in the starting rotation was Buchholz. I'm interested to see what moves are made as far as bringing in new guys, but I don't have high expectations.

The Red Sox have interest in Napoli evidently. That's all I've heard surrounding Boston.

You can win the AL East with average pitching if you knock the shit out of the baseball. Yankees starters weren't that great at all. Boston is in shambles. Baltimore defied pretty much everything and made the playoffs. Rays seem like the team in the best shape going into next season to me. Now the Blue Jays just raised them all.

Obviously games aren't played on paper so who the fuck knows what will actually happen.

Ehh, he's better than Salty, I wouldn't have a problem signing him.

Didn't he have some type of major surgery last year? Might be thinking of the wrong player.

Pitching is the Sox's biggest problem. Were god-awful last year, improvements on pitching are a necessity this offseason.

I heard Texas was interested in one of Arencebia or D'Arnaud. D'Arnauld please no.

Boston has been tied to every Free Agent, man.

Aside from that, word is Rays are interested in Justin Upton. YES PLEASE. I'd give up Shields + more for him.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

Read that Texas tried to trade Olt to the Braves for SS Simmons. They were then going to trade Simmons for Justin Upton. Braves said NO. Braves won't trade Simmons for Upton.

So now will Texas deal Andrus for JUp? Hmmm

Texas also interested in brother BJ Upton. UPTON BROTHERS IN ARLINGTON PLEASE.

And JM, Texas probably goes for Arencibia. D'Arnaud would cost too much.

ATL wasn't going to get burned by Texas again like they did in the Teixiera trade.
