  1. The Fish are interested in an overrated eight million dollar fourth starter? Tell me another one. I think the Palm Beach Post has Lisa Guerrero and Eric Dickerson doing their baseball coverage.
  2. there was that period around 99-01 where salaries skyrocketed and those enormous contracts started being signed, i remmeber when we gave sheff that six year 61 million or so contract and it was like the 4th most expensive contract out there. now plenty of guys make 10 million a year 639193[/snapback] Yeah I mean Kris f***ing Benson makes over 7 million now. (sigh) 639202[/snapback] who wants to bet his wife got that contract by giving blowjobs to Mets executives? 640499[/snapback] if only minaya were that smart.
  3. F*ck n****r. We could have offered him 11 million dollars easily. 640595[/snapback] Come on- this is a Marlins board, not a Braves board. John Rocker language not permitted.
  4. I wish we could go after Magglio, despite his knee problems. One thing stands in the way, and that's his agent, Scott Boras. Probably won't happen because of him. 640553[/snapback] Maggs has to go all the way to Old Europe just to get his knee scoped? This smells rotten. You're right, something should get in the way, and that's Beinfeist's common sense. A one year incentive deal would be OK, but this guy's knee makes Pedro's torn labrum look golden.
  5. 5 yrs at 55 mil? Sound Familiar? If so, its because thats the exact contract Darren Dreifort has been "earning" since 2000. Here's to similar results.
  6. BREAKING NEWS: Jason Giambi has just pulled ahead of Javier Vazquez in an informal popularity poll by New York Yankees fans. His recent surge places him somewhere between Pedro Martinez and the average frat guy in Cambridge, MA.
  7. Because Wayne Franklin is BACK. http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=240824128 SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco Giants have re-signed left-handed pitcher Wayne Franklin to a one-year contract for the 2005 season, club Senior Vice President and General Manager Brian Sabean announced today. The 31-year-old southpaw posted a 2-1 mark with a 6.39 ERA in 43 games (two starts) with the Giants this past season, having originally been acquired by the team March 30 in a trade with Milwaukee. As a reliever on the season, he ranked fifth in the National League by stranding 79.1% of his inherited runners (34-for-43). As a starter, he split a pair of decisions.
  8. This stinks. I thought Javy V and his 6.92 post All-Star Break ERA would have looked great in Dodger Blue. For some reason he disagreed. http://www.newsday.com/sports/baseball/yan...ports-headlines Silver Lining: Green/ Penny/ Brahzoban is probably worse for LA than Drew/ Vazquez/ Koplove

  10. One official involved in the discussions told Newsday, "We shook hands" Friday. A second executive confirmed the first official's story to Newsday and added, "Who's ever going to want to do business with [the Dodgers] again?" Another classy Dodger deal. The specter of Kevin Malone looms... http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=1951207
