Josh Hamilton to the Tigers ? Seems unlikely, but there are rumors. After the Fielder signing, nothing would surprise me. It's nice having an owner who was once poor, and knows what money is for.

Maybe Mark McGwire in LA could help that Dodger offense, give it a shot in the arm or a shot in the ass if you want to get sarcastic about it. I was just looking at some of the Dodgers offensive stats & I was a bit surprised. 26th in runs scored, 16th in batting average, 18th in on base percentage, 28th in slugging percentage. I didn't expect numbers like those with a team that has Matt Kemp, Hanley Ramirez, Andre Ethier & some other mashers in the lineup. I also think that Dodgers pitching rotation has some question marks outside of Clayton Kershaw.

I sure hope the Mets are not serious about a possible trade of R.A. Dickey. If we get rid of him, what the fuck do we have left in that rotation?

It probably depends on how much of a return they get. Can he be this effective continuously? Knuckleballers usually dont survive long. If they got major help in the field it may be worth it

Dodgers hire Mark McGuire as Hitting Coach. Any opinions on this?

How well did he do in St. Louis? I don't have a very high opinion of him, but that doesn't mean he won't do a good job though.

He will not be what he once was. I cant see it. He will be good but not great. I say the O's can win the East next year.

You're just a ray of sunshine anymore, Rick. Doom and gloom personified....

ANYTHING can happen. It should be a very interesting offseason.

Quite a generalization with my saying your boy Rivera will not be what he once was. You have this thing called age. Ever heard of it?

Tomorrow, managers of the year get announced. Got to think Buck Showalter is a shoe-in for the American League.

He had better be. I think the guy in Oakland should be second but if anyone steals it from Buck it will be him.

Typical Bud Selig/MLB foolishness: Announce your major season awards at a time when no one is paying attention to baseball, all eyes being on the NFL, NBA and college football now.

Oh well, at least they got the awards out before spring training begins. :rolleyes:

A's Melvin (close in voting) and Nat's Johnson (voting not close) for manager. Today is the Cy Young announcement.

A good word (conniption) not used often enough. It will be a first for a knuckeballer to win it, correct? Good luck.

Torii Hunter signs for 2 years with the TIgers.

Good move. Platoon him in right with Garcia.

I was just on ESPN's MLB page & this would be a first for a knuckleballer to get the Cy Young & thanks for the good luck wish. :)

Kansas City Royals have signed Shields from Tampa and now the Royals may be back on the map. They are expected to be in the race in the Central. This is good news for us Orioles fans and I am sure to the rest of the AL East to see Shields go bye bye.

Also, the LA Dodgers are spending money like a drunken sailor. Expect the Dodgers to be good

You try and raise them right, and look what they end up doing... so sad...

Hope your boys have fun facing Shields umpteen times. Ha. Good riddens
