Just reading that story. I feel really intrusive into his personal life now.

Well, unfortunately, due to his problems over say the last ten years, this has become public knowledge. I don't know the man, but I'm certainly hoping things are ok for him. At one point his wife wouldn't let him leave the house with more than 20 bucks so he didn't get into trouble. Plus, obviously, this isn't good for him financially. He's gonna be a free agent after 2012. What team is going to invest a lot of money into a guy with a history of injuries who also has serious troubles keeping his demons at bay?

Oh I follow. It was just the way this particular story was worded that made me feel dirty. The whole, hey hey look every one! Hamilton was in a bar! Aspect of it.

Water is wet. Fire is hot. Oil Can Boyd did coke heavily during his playing career.

Wow, I'm hearing that fucking Oakland got Cespedes? That's a coup. They weren't even named as one of the teams with interest. I would have bet big money on it being the Marlins or one of the two Chicago teams.

Yoenis Cespedes. This Cuban dude who's supposed to be a very, very good natural athlete and power hitter. 26 years old. He's apparently the second coming to some scouts. He's supposed to hit like 95 home runs this year or some shit.

Cespedes sounds like a VD or something.

Really? Why?

I would have been excited if we had got him. Like I said, a lot of people are very high on him and think he has big potential.

Talk of 6 years for a guy who has never played a game in the majors in his life? We have Emilio Bonifacio and a substantial bench to fill in the 'gap'. Wouldn't want a bust of Cespedes to interrupt a Mike Stanton contract, though. Which is the main point. I wouldn't have given Cespedes over 3 years (or over $30m).

The Miami Marlins will be featured in season two of "The Franchise".

It looks as though AJ will get shipped to the Bucs. Frankly, might be the best thing for both sides.
