re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Because he's the hero the San Francisco Giants don't really deserve because he's so incomparably brilliant and super-duper-amazing but definitely the one the team needs right now. So we'll play him about 150 games a season if not more. And let him catch despite the perils of the position about which he knows all too well, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. Wait... Yeah. He is a motherfucking hero. A silent guardian, a watchful catcher who can frame and throw guys out about as well as anybody whose last name isn't Molina. A cleanup hitter who cleans up. A Most Valuable Player of the League.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Selig's never seen a big trade he didn't like.

I'm starting to wonder... Has it literally been since 1976 when Major League Baseball last intervened in a huge payroll-shedding trade where an owner effectively blew a team up? That was the Oakland A's owner Charley Finley. MLB Commissioner Bowie Kuhn vetoed an attempt by Oakland Ass owner Charlie Finley to sell Vida Blue to the New York Yankees while Finley was trying to sell much of that whole dynastic team off. Of course, Kuhn was probably as motivated by revenge as anything else, since Finley had tried to organize as many owners as possible to dislodge Kuhn from his throne the previous year.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

The Blue Jays have named John Gibbons their "new" manager. Gibby of course already managed the team from 2004-08. It's in interesting move, certainly unexpected but it makes sense to some degree. We'll see how it plays out I guess.

Thank you, New York Yankees. Thank you... for keeping Hiroki Kuroda out of Dodger Blue.

Now, it's time for you, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, to step up and keep Zack Greinke out of the evil grasp of the Blue Horde.

The Chicago Cubs have designated Bryan LaHair for assignment. I'd love to see Sabean swoop down and pick him up as a bat off the bench vs. RHP. Meanwhile, keep Arias around on the bench to go up against LHP.

Do it, Sabes! Swoooop!

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Braves signed OF B.J. Upton to a five-year, $75.25 million contract. Can't say I like that move at all. That's a lot of money for a streaky guy and (in my opinion) the less talented Upton.

Bears - Bulls - Braves - Blackhawks - Bulldogs - America

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Tommy Hanson to the Angels for former highly touted Angels closer, Jordan Walden. Tim Hudson not expected to be re-upped; Brian McCain is. This opens up room for top prospects Randall Delgado and Julio Teheran. Gives the Braves something like:

Medlen/Maholm/Minor/Delgado/Teheran/Beachey (when he recovers from Tommy John)

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I think Angels should back away from Greinke, he is a great arm but way too overpriced and lol at Dodgers if they think this is the answer to the GIANTS. I rather have them fix their bullpen as it seems that is what they are exactly doing. Walden leaving is great in my book considering he was one the reasons the bullpen was awful.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Last I heard the Angels aren't pursuing him anymore. Angels signed Ryan Madson. I'm assuming he's the closer now.

Looks like it's between the Dodgers and Nationals and maybe the Rangers. Nationals would be insane.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Yeah Madson is a closer, it will be interesting to see how he considering that he did not play this past season. Didnt know Nats were in the bid as well.
