  1. I'll trade Uggla now while his stock is high. Well then you better pray that Dominguez is ready to play in the big leagues and Coghlan is ready to take over at 2B You put Ozzie at 2nd, or sign a F.A 2nd basemen and use that money on pitching.

  3. As long as we have opening day 2012 in our new ballpark, I don't mind what the workers are doing, as long as everything is done correctly.
  4. Although this would be great news, I don't see it happening so fast. Under MLB rules we are supposed to interview a couple of candidates, before hiring somebody in order to comply with the equal opportunist rule.
  5. 1-2 now with a double for stanton, and 2 walks, he was just intentionally walked He's not swinging at the intentional walks, his plate discipline is improving! There's been 2 unintentional an 1 intentional.. I'm sure they're pitching around him already, so he's either gaining plate discipline or getting nothing to swing at.

  7. I rather there be no TV now then while we're in a playoff run, in mid september. Luckily the Heat are playing tonight
  8. 03 - what you said is interesting and likely valid. The part where I disagree is that I think you can begin drawing some conclusions from Stanton's play. I wouldn't suggest projecting his ML stats based off of his April ones, but I do think he's getting close to the point where a promotion to AAA might be necessary. The other key difference is that he's expected to mash, right now. Pudge is NOT expected to bat .400. So while Stanton isn't expected to OPS 1.200+ and bash 70 homers, of course, he was expected to have a great year and hit for power, so it's more fair to draw (some sort of) conclusions from his stats as opposed to Pudge's. btw, so there's no misunderstanding, I fully expect the guy to be huge, monstrous, (lol king kong lol) in fact I already have my new avatar pic selected when he does make (he's replacing the 18yr old Miggy pic I currently use), I suppose I'm just more patient than most. That's why when I say give the kid at least this season in the minors it isn't out of disrespect, in fact it's the opposite. And again I say, not ignoring the service time issue or $$$ or any of that, I would rather have waited two extra months, than bring him up a half season too early. LeBatard was laughing at Stugots yesterday over the latter's desire to trade the guy for a few weeks of Manny Ramirez a season ago, it was a funny moment, had to be there. I hope the guy goes out and hits four today. Lol, if he hits 4 today, I think Stanton might be seeing a call up to the bigs within this week

    MLB.TV questions

    MLB.TV is now coming out with a product for the PS3
  10. The last thing we need is OF depth, specially from this guy
  11. By any chance are you guys aware of whether or not season ticket holders, or fans with partial game plans get discounted parking? Or would we have to pay $10 everytime we go to a game? Thanks
  12. There are less than two weeks to go before spring training and the Florida Marlins are apparently trying to add another decent bat. The two names that supposedly interest the team most are Carlos Delgado(notes) and Darin Erstad(notes), according to the Miami Herald. Since the team lost Ross Gload(notes) to the Philadelphia Phillies, it has been looking around to find a replacement and first baseman/outfielder Erstad and Delgado both could fit, though Delgado is apparently looking to make a lot of dough and nobody seems willing to give that to him right now. Delgado pretty much missed the whole season due to injury. Meanwhile, Erstad spent last year with the Houston Astros, batting .194 with two homers.
  13. Like I said before, Lindstrom for Lowell and cash. There's no way it's going to take even close to Uggla to get Lowell and his salary paid for. This move isn't about acquiring a great/solid/average/aging, whatever you want to call him, third baseman. It's about lineup flexibility and freeing up Cantu to play 1st if neither one of our unproven rookies are ready, or freeing him up to play 2nd in place of Boni. We still have Wes Helms to start once a week at 3B to lessen the wear and tear on Lowell. There's no way a Lindstrom for Lowell and cash works out Talk about a cliffhanger. Did you ask your magic 8 ball? You must be joking. You are the same person that proposed trading one of the best offensive second baseman in baseball, plus Gaby Sanchez, and maybe more for a $12 million 3B with injury history on the downhill side of his career and an average relief pitcher, right? In the words of Dwight Schrute, "Shun!" And in response to you, el penguino, is it that hard to fathom? Boston wants to get rid of Lowell to move Youk to 3rd and trade for a big bat at 1st, and they have the money to eat his salary. There have been reports saying that one of Lindstrom and Nunez will probably be traded. Nunez was declared our closer earlier this week, making Matty L. expendable. How much interest do you think there is in Lowell? If I was Boston, I'd be glad to get a kid with an arm like Lindstrom's, with closer potential when he's on, in exchange for Lowell, and be done with it yes, I did propose that and I noticed my mistake and decided to disregard that. I'm not bashing you or anything, I'm just saying Lindstrom really isn't worth that much. All lindstrom has is a FLAT 100 MPH fastball with no control. He will be worth something one day, but not right now.
