  1. I would include the Sheffield trade among the best trade. I would look at several that were made in the aftermath of the 1997 championship, trades that brought in Derrek Lee, A.J. Burnett, Brad Penny, Braden Looper and Mike Lowell, whom years later he'd be flipped to get Hanley and Anibal. The 2002 trades that brought in Willis, Pavano, Mordecai and Encarnacion should be in the better trades. Recently the deal to get Rojas and Dee worked out pretty good for the Fish. Worst trade definitely Cabrera, but I'd add the Yelich deal along with the Stanton trade. I'd also throw in trading Johan Santana away as a worst trade candidate
  2. A no doubter, ten time all-star with 9 Gold Gloves also helps he was behind the plate for two WS Champs
  3. I mean if a team is one or two pitchers away from being a contender why not?!?
  4. Good thing the Marlins got the 2nd best catching prospect that year in that draft
  5. It took me a while to find some pictures I got of Miggy through the years, first in 2002 lucky enough to get that one signed, 2003 with the Mudcats, 2007 in throwback uniforms against the Indians and his first spring with the Tigers
  6. Mike Hill absolutely should've been let go, if it was me it would've been a condition of purchasing the team. As for dumping any kind of legacy, a team rich in tradition like the Yanks they could've found a spots for McKeon, Perez, Conine and Dawson but that was their call, still don't support it but again their team. Still waiting to see how the new hires work out, thus far not overly impressed but still time to get there
  7. I'm not sure how I feel about this, since Topps was the only baseball card company the last few years I can say I honestly can't tell the difference between one years cards from the next years they all look so similar, also former Disney chief Michael Eisner took over Topps so I'm kinda glad that asshole won't be in the game. On the other hand I've collected every Topps baseball set for the last 45 years so I'm not sure I'm ready to commit to a product from fanatics, also their prices on items is rather high and not usually of great quality plus they've never made cards of any sort so there's that too. I guess I'll have to wait and see about the price and product but this has another shitty Manfred deal written all over it
  8. In a nutshell, I'd say no, there's no sense in starting the clock running on him at this point, doesn't really look like he has much left to work on there though
  9. It's been a while since I've eaten at either so I'm assuming the Grand Slam is still available at Denny's? Ihop chocolate chip pancakes
  10. Maybe an unpopular opinion but if either of them are starters next year, they aren't contending
  11. Didn't Jackson start out as an outfielder when he was first drafted? I mean if they're going to put anyone in the outfield that would make more sense
  12. Two dingers in a week, time to send him for a steroid test ?
  13. I thought the point of these trades were to better the team in the future? Jackson is a slightly better version of Wallach
  14. The native Floridian says it's Key Lime
