That team will have some old dudes at the corners.

The Yankees got Russell Wilson in a trade with Texas.  All coming together nicely.

That's a lot of heroin and coke.

Looking like he will spend longer in prison than he did in the majors.

It's like this, kid:

a) It could be mistaken identity. If so, the person they captured, whomever it is, is likely going away longer than Loaiza's baseball career, because he is guilty.

b) It could be a set-up or plant. If so, Loaiza is likely to to be going away for a long time, even though he is innocent.

c) It could be exactly what it sounds like. If so, Loaiza is likely to to be going away for a long time, because he is guilty.

It's not like he could claim that he tested guilty because of sesame seeds.

HOw do we know that Rob Manfred is lying? Well, this is the guy who hung with and then paid criminals to find "evidence" that A-Rod used steroids.

READ THIS:“It is common at this point in the calendar to have large numbers of free agents unsigned. What is uncommon is to have some of the best free agents sitting unsigned even though they have substantial offers, some in nine figures. It is the responsibility of players’ agents to value their clients in a constantly changing free agent market based on factors such as positional demand, advanced analytics and the impact of the new basic agreement.  To lay responsibility on the clubs for the failure of some agents to accurately assess the market is unfair, unwarranted and inflammatory.”

YES. quite "to have some of the best free agents sitting unsigned".

BUT...HOW DOES THE COMMISSIONER KNOW "they have substantial offers, some in nine figures", if there is no collusion?

He didn't say, "reportedly" in front of "substantial offers, some in nine figures".

He said it as though the KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT THE OFFERS HAVE BEEN, and if that is the case, then MLB is complicit in creating an environment in which the free market is supposed to actually be a free market.

Rob Manfred was brought in to cheat, lie, steal, etc....and work only for the owners. He, like his predecessor, has no real interest in "the best interests of baseball".

While adding a big bat seems to be what most fans are pining for, Dombrowski says that not what he hears.

"I go out every morning, I have a cup of coffee, I sit at a Dunkin Donuts and I bet you I have about 10 people a day that talk to me. And it's really split," he said. "People are very supportive, don't do anything if you think it's unwise."

Im heartened to hear Dave D is getting has java and free agent advice at Dunkin's. But I wonder if the pulse of RSN is any different at Starbucks?

I'm not normally a donut guy, but  on my way up to Maine I always at a Gourmet Donuts in Littleton, MA, which I guess is part of a small chain.   Excellent place.

I'll go into a Dunkin's every now and then for a glazed cruller, and iced coffee. Never got into the Krispy Kreme kraze, they were good, but they're just freakin' donuts.  Not familiar with "Gormet Donuts" up in Maine. I do remember they had Tim Hortons up there (a Candian outfit), like Dunkin's, nothing remarkable.

Actually the Gourmet Donuts is in Mass in a bunch of those little towns of off 495.  I go in there just to get away from the hell that is 495.
