Mets finally talking some sense.....

looking to deal A J Ramos from a crowded back of bullpen (2-3 closers = no closer)

Hope to get a 2B

Then add a top reliever, bumping Familia to setup.

(Mets had top offer for Kinsler but he wouldnt go there)

Had to be a money (RESPE$T) thing with Santana.  I could see him loving playing with Cespedes and Rosario, Lagares and Flores - and the mamba crew in the pen.

Oh - AND a staff.

Meanwhile, this guy thinks Sox should have nabbed Santana - and was saying NYET to Hosmer definitively

Disagree.

Moot.

They resigned Moreland.

Doesnt change my opinion

When was the last time something changed your opinion.

Last I read, you still thing Ball was the best player taken in the NBA draft this past go round...

The police don't care when you rob from each other, but when you start robbing white folks---another creative excuse for a lawsuit:

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/12/the-criminalization-of-gentrifying-neighborhoods/548837/?google_editors_picks=true

No one wants to sue the police, we just don’t want to be preemptively treated as criminal in our own neighborhood.

I’m sure you can understand that...

Or you wish to protect the neighborhood from the invading law followers. Either way, the post is in the wrong neighborhood. And will be moved.

I think either one of the Florida teams should consider moving to Utah or to Idaho.

It's could for the game---

Yes

Good draft though

Sox should have signed Hosmer.  Not often a guy like this is available.  A Pedroia type (intangibles to go with the skill set).

But Vanilla Mitch it is.

We already knew from the Arod investigation that he led that Rob Manfred was ethically challenged.

This latest episode confirms that truism: http://thebiglead.com/2017/12/22/mlb-rob-manfred-complained-espn-dan-le-batard-interview-marlins-derek-jeter-giancarlo-stanton/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

Bonds with 70+% of the vote entered thus far for the Hall.

Love the trend.

I'd imagine with this news they are close to finding a new home for Ellsbury (Yanks likely pay up to half the $$).
