I wouldn't have minded bringing Melky back as a bench OF. That was chump change.

I would be surprised to see Texas go to a 6-year offer let alone a 7-year offer for Lee. I think they would do the cost (20-23 milly a year) but definitely not the years. If Yanks do 6/150, its a wrap.

Now if Mark Cuban was the owner, then it would be a different story.

I scoff at the thought that Lee will take less money to "stay in the south." That man after that paper right now. Home is where the money is playa. I expect him to be a Yankee by the end of the week.
I hope so too. Weirder things have happened though.

Im not mad at the francouer or cabrera signing primarily because a. they are short term contracts that arent costing alot and b. we arent giving up players for them.

Frenchy rakes LHP and I have always been a fan of Melky for some reason. Our OF depth in the minors is pretty weak so these guys should fill in nicely for the time being. It sure beats paying Jose Guillen 10+ million to suck a.ss.

The Mets announced today they have signed C Ronny Paulino to a one year contract and RHP D.J. Carrasco to a two year contract.

The 29 year old Paulino hit .259 with four home runs and 37 RBI for the Marlins last year, but was suspended for 50 games for the use of performance enhancing drugs in August. He will remain suspended for the first eight games of the 2011 season.

Paulino hit .358 against left handed pitching in 2010, but hit only .217 against right handed hitters. He has hit .338 against left handed pitching over the course of his career, good for the sixth-highest among active major leaguers.

He is a lifetime .273 hitter in six seasons with the Marlins and Pirates with 31 home runs and 192 RBI with a .328 on base percentage in 1720 plate appearances.

Carrasco split the 2010 season between the Pirates and D-Backs, going a combined 3-2 with a 3.68 ERA in 63 relief appearances, although he walked 34 batters in 78 innings. He held right-handed hitters to a .228 batting average in 2010, while left-handed batters hit .260 against him.

Orioles get Hardy, Harris in Twins deal

Trying to add more pop up the middle, the Baltimore Orioles acquired former All-Star shortstop J.J. Hardy from the Minnesota Twins on Thursday.

The Orioles also got infielder Brendan Harris and $500,000 in the trade that sent minor league right-handers Jim Hoey and Brett Jacobson to the AL Central champion Twins.

Source: Mariners, Olivo agree to deal


A person familiar with the negotiations tells The a.ssociated Press that catcher Miguel Olivo has reached preliminary agreement on a contract to return to the Seattle Mariners.

The deal is subject to Olivo passing a physical. The person spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because the agreement was not final.

FoxSports.com first reported the agreement and said it was for $7 million over two seasons.

Jon Morosi: "Source confirms @jcrasnick story: Bruce signs extension with #Reds for six years and $51M."



Solid pickup by the Reds. Extending Bruce on the cheap will keep him from the megainflation process we've witnessed on the Free Agent market for the past few years.

Nolan Ryan told Lee's agent "whatever Lee wants, I'll give him"

I can see the Rangers going to 7 years, $175 million if it's true that the Yankees lowered the average salary for a 7 year deal

The Yankees selected Daniel Turpen from the Red Sox in the Rule 5 draft because they believe that he was the player to be named later in the Gonz trade with SD.

Jokes. I've been watching twitter for the past four hours while listening to 1050. Here's one tweet exchange that had me dying.

Hes going to pick us. Sad that its 7 years but if Moyer and Maddux can pitch into their 40s without overpowering stuff, Lee can. A total of only 9 HR's given to lefties in the last 3 years. This guy is a must for Boston who he has an ERA under 2 in the last 2 seasons against. Plus less than 100 walks in his last 3 seasons combined. This guy is a controlling beast.

I picked up a fun fact on Twitter earlier, Carl Crawford is lifetime .222 against Cliff Lee.

Still cant get over the fact that Crawford has a

.781 career OPS, .337 OBP, 104 career HRs, never cracked 100 RBI, this guy worth 20MM a season for 7 years?

Blame the Nats desperation for Werth, the Angels desperation for Crawford and Boston's desperation to make a splash. The top three deals made all wreak of desperation from all parties.
