Agreed on all fronts.

I guess Cleveland's going to try to give the Tigers a run for their money right now. Francona already gives the organization a managerial facelift if nothing else (and he is a solid manager). The AL Central is the weakest division in baseball, and the Indians were a few games over .500 at the All-Star break; it was in the second half where they really fell apart.

Eh, we'll see. That whole division seems so warty, though, so perhaps now is the time to at least attempt a strike.

Mets were offering Bourn the same amount, but refused to sign him for the 11th overall draft pick.

He already served a suspension for whatever offense that report makes reference to.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Comcast Sportsnet is showing GIANTS highlights from 2012, including four different episodes of "Inside the Clubhouse": "Inside the Clubhouse--'Orange October': NLDS"; "Inside the Clubhouse--'Orange October': NLCS"; "Inside the Clubhouse--'Orange October': World Series"; and finally, "Inside the Clubhouse--'The Giants' Best of 2012" which covers highlights from the entire year (the "NLDS" episode covers a lot of Spring Training, too).

Watching some of it, can't help but just say I love this moment and it really makes me like Justin Verlander quite a bit...

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

LOL TOWERS, LOL D-BACKS

"@nickpiecoro: Towers said the #Dbacks didn’t do a physical exam of Gregorius before finalizing the deal to acquire him."

"Nick Piecoro ‏@nickpiecoro
#Dbacks GM Kevin Towers said shortstop Didi Gregorius has a slight strain of UCL in his right elbow in an area that doesn’t require surgery."

UCL strain, no way he'll be ready for Opening Day.

God, Towers is such an abysmal General Manager. I don't even rate Bauer that highly, but my God, he was just sooooo anxious to get rid of him.

I'm genuinely sorry this kid has an injury; you don't want to see anyone hurt.

But, my goodness, to not even do due diligence with your newly-acquired player...

This fits right in line with the decisions Towers has made in the last year or so now. Sheer incompetence.

That's a lot of money for a pitcher. I'll be right back, gotta go work on my pitching skills so I can get just a quarter of that money.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Nats seem to be contemplating signing Lohse. I reckon if Gio gets suspended, they could use him. Even if he doesn't, it's just another arm to add to that crazy pitching staff.

Detwiler back to the bullpen? Who knows. Nats might not even sign him. They have to give up another pick to do it.
