  1. Loria really has screwed himself in terms of signing any top-line legitimate FA ever again. He won't budge on no-trade clauses so why would anyone want to come here when it would be painfully obvious there's no guarantee you'd stay the life of your contract? If I was Buehlre and Reyes I'd be PISSED! They signed here for lifestyle reasons, as well as the money. But to shaft them like that after one year is almost unfair. I know it's part of the job and it could happen at any time but geez, I feel for them.
  2. OK, now I feel a lot better about yesterday's move. Makes sense now...
  3. So we only get Mathis after sending all that talent? LOL!
  4. Speechless. I don't even want to imagine what our line-up and rotation is looking like now. Can someone at least post some info about the prospects acquired? I have no idea. In fact, nevermind, I don't think I care anyway.
  5. Brett Hayes' wife is the hottest! Much respect to him!
  6. OK now I don't want to get too ahead of myself as I realise that he's stunk for the majority of the year, but you can't help by excited by, and for, Heath Bell over the last few days. He is finally showing better stuff and getting swing-and-misses which is crucial for a closers success. I really hope he continues to show improvements like he has because we are starting to see glimpes of what made him so dominant over the last few years. Fingers crossed he keeps it up.
  7. Ozzie post-game: ''Bell continues to struggle. We'll check (Saturday) to see about the situation," Guillen said "We have to do something about it. We can't be waiting anymore.''
  8. LOL. Terrible. We should've changed closers after the last outing!!!
  9. I know everyone hated the Gaudin signing and him making the opening day roster, but I have to say, he has been nothing but impressive in the limited opportunities he's had so far.
  10. How weird is it that on form, JJ has been our worst performing starter!
  11. Infante is out for tomorrow as well, apparently. Hamstring tightness. Such a shame because he has been playing real well the first two weeks. Hopefully it's nothing that continues to linger.
  12. Very awkward ... but a nice touch anyway.
  13. Haters gonna hate. They will find out soon enough if the fish get "stressed" as if they start dying then it will be pretty obvious PETA is right...
  14. The only prospects we need are Stanton's sperm.
  15. And they've also signed Kuroda by all reports. Their pitching gets a whole lot better but for long-term value I can't believe they got rid of Montero.
  16. So... SS. Reyes CF. Boni 3B. Hanley RF. Stanton LF. LoMo 1B. Gaby C. Buck 2B. Infante Bench: C. Hayes 1B/3B. Dobbs 3B/SS. Murphy OF. Rowand OF/2B. Coghlan SP: 1. JJ 2. Buehrle 3. Anibal 4. Nolasco 5. Zambrano BP: 1. LeBlanc (LR) 2. Mujica 3. Webb 4. Cishek 5. Choate 6. Dunn 7. Bell (CL) Amirite?!
  17. Ha! I can't believe they're paying that much. What an awesome deal. And .. no more Volstad!!
  18. Can you imagine if Zambrano and Ozzie got into a fight about Ozzie taking Z out of a game early? Classic.
  19. Delaney could be a sleeper. He sucked when promoted to the majors but in AAA last year he had a 1.86 ERA and 57/17 K/BB ratio over 67 2/3 innings. A depth addition.
  20. dobbs gets $3M for the 2 years. thats $1.5M a year for greg dobbs. i said it twice so youll believe me. #marlins -Heyman Haha. Oh well. We needed it for the bench. We overpaid a little but he's a valuable piece so I'll take it.
  21. This has to be, without question, the best division in baseball ... with or without Fielder. The AL East has four good teams, too. True. I guess I keep forgetting about the Blue Jays and how competitive they've gotten lately. Still, I think with the moves that have been made, this will be the closest division this year.
  22. This has to be, without question, the best division in baseball ... with or without Fielder.
  23. In all seriousness, a bench consisting of Coghlan, Dobbs, Murphy, Rowand and Hayes would be pretty damn awesome.
  24. At least we're not the Mets. The Mets rotation is Johan Santana, Jon Niese, R.A. Dickey, Mike Pelfrey and Dillon Gee and a report surfaced today that Santana is not expected to be right for Opening Day.
