Stanton WILL play for the USA. Jones, Wright, Mauer, Stanton, BP, and Braun. Not bad. I haven't seen Cutch or Tulo confirm, but Wright, Tulo, and BP is a nice IF. Stanton, Braun, and Jones/Cutch would be a nice OF.
Tulowitzki needs to take a physical before the WBC committee in order to compete. Otherwise, he has declared.
Milton Bradley is facing 13 years in prison for assault with a deadly weapon against his girlfriend. Facing multiple charges.
The NY Mets are said to be favorites to land former SF Giants closer, Brian Wilson. Wilson is drawing interest from 9 teams. NY is the favorites to land him right now.
Diamondbacks are coveting Olt. They're in talks with the Rangers for an Upton/Olt package. Holding up the deal is the other prospect(s) Texas would have to include with Olt in a package.
*Zero sex-drive crew*
*More interested in power tools than females crew*
*Buys power tools for single use then keeps them in garage unused for decades crew*
*Pretends to be a handyman at home, takes 8 years to insulate a wall crew*
*Doesn't like music, movies, or TV crew*
*After some self reflection, realizes that he really doesn't like anything crew*
D'backs are probably finding that Olt/stuff is the best they can get without Upton vetoing. I mean I have to think Texas offered Olt/stuff in past months. Not sure how I'd feel about giving up Olt and Perez. We'll see how it plays out. Daniels almost always refuses to overpay.
