Looks like it might be Pierzynski to the Rangers.

If so, there's now only one remaining player on the roster from the '05 squad.

Looks like it's a done deal. Rangers replace a power-hitting catcher who lacks in defense for a power hitting catcher whose defense is declining with age, likely for less than Napoli would have cost. Good move for them.

Except that, other than 2012, Pierzynski has never really been a power hitter. Last season was an anomaly. Contract year, he hit way more homers than he's ever hit, or will again.

At least in my estimation, he'll most likely be back to his usual 10 - 15 homers this season instead of the 27 he hit last year.

But, yes. Nice move. A.J. is a good offensive player, and the type of guy you'd much rather play with than play against.

Nah.

And it was time to part ways with Pierzynski. Tyler Flowers will hit 25+ homers as the every day catcher this year, and is significantly better defensively than Pierzynski. Probably won't hit for much average, though.

Mariners trotting out Ibanez again? Ugh. So old.

Raul got a contract because Baltimore was too stupid to throw breaking balls to him in the playoffs.

Thanks, I don't mean to be such a downer about the team. I have to image every Cubs fan hits this dark patch every now and again.

This thread and you guys have me already following the action more than I have in quite some time, and that is, of course, what I love about interference.

I don't know if I should thank you guys or not. I haven't stopped reading farm system reports in days. This is what I do with a week off from work (in which I contract the flu) I suppose.

Watching Nick Swisher's press conference. Gonna miss him being on the Yankees. He represented the team well on and off the field.
