    Keep in mind that Manny is also on the trading block, and suprisingly his contract isn't much of an issue anymore.

    Matthews is basically a fourth outfielder coming off a career year. This is going to be funny as heck to watch.

    I was hoping the Cubs would waste their money and sign him. Oh well.

    I think the Jacoby hiring is a sign that Dunn isn't going to be moved.

    His defensive metrics are very close to Juniors too.

    Juan Pierre...who knew?

    I thought Andrew Jones was considered one of the best defensive CFs in the game. I guess he's taken a major step backward. Rowand, too, is held in high regard.

    ESPNews just reported this as well during their last update.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Foxsports says its 5 years for 50 million. Potentially the worst free agent signing ever. I bet if you gave deno the same playing time this year he would put up just as good if not better numbers.

    playing CF well is mostly about speed. If you don't have speed all the other positive attributes become meaningless.

    Well, he did make that one catch this year so that's probably what they're going on.
