re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I don't think the Giants will repeat. I'm thinking Nationals win it or Dodgers.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I really like how the Diamondbacks rounded out their roster. Good depth top to bottom, pitching and field. Kennedy, Miley, McCarthy, Skaggs, Cahill, Corbin, D. Hudson, Randall Delgado... fuark.

Still would have loved to see Eaton up on the big league roster. Maybe that will happen someday, though it doesn't look imminent anymore with the signing of Ross.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Trading Bauer just seems like a bad misstep, though. We'll see in due time.

Eww. Fuck that.

The odds of repeating, in truth, are always fairly remote. But not impossible.

One thing's for sure, if we aren't going to make it, I hope one of our fallback priorities is to, if nothing else, block the Dodgers from making it. They can't be allowed to even sniff a World Championship. And it's only good for baseball. Don't want people thinking you can buy the World Series.

I'm actually in mild disagreement with both of you. I think many of the Diamondbacks' moves this offseason were almost downright inexplicable. I'll never know why Towers hates Justin Upton, but at least they did get Prado out of the deal. Apparently, Towers and his cadre want all of the "gritty infielders" there are, most of whom (Cliff Pennington from Oakland, Didi Gregorious from Cleveland, for starters) have very weak bats.

Having said that, I don't think Bauer is going to end up as anything significant. He's a Tim Lincecum wannabe who puts together a very complex motion but has next to no velocity. He'll never, ever, be the pitcher Lincecum was from 2008-2011 if he can't establish a fastball that dominates and makes everything else work. My big beef with the trade for the D-Bags is that they got very, very little in return. And even with Justin Upton, Towers and co. fucked up the market by always waving him around and belittling him (if you read between any lines at all) to anyone who would listen. They could have theoretically made out like bandits, and instead they made very modest-at-best improvements.

That is a thoroughly decent, solid starting rotation, though. Giants have had loads of trouble with several of those guys in the past.

Anyway... Off to GIANTS FanFest! Whoohoo!

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Mets are building up a nice minor league system...if this was 1999. Let's go LATROY HAWKINS, MARLON BYRD, BRANDON LYON & COREY PATTERSON~!

Dunno how I feel about the Red Sox this year. I can't stand Victorino, Napoli seems really banged up, god knows how Dempster does, etc.

As for the D-Backs who I mildly follow, I kinda like the changes they made. Big fan of Prado and I like them wrapping up Hill. I like Goldy and Montero quite a bit too and Brandon McCarthy is one of my favorite personalities in baseball.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Eaton could play this year Flex. They don't really have much in the OF beyond Kubel and Ross. They may use Para's versatility as the 4th OFer.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I think Hill's contract extension was a terrible decision, personally.
