I'll be happy to take Manny off your hands, but Wright, Reyes, and (maybe Pedro) are not part of the package.

Pena: 45 HR in last 689 plate appearances (2004-2005)
Manny Ramirez: 45 HR in last 634 plate appearances (2005)
David Ortiz: 47 HR in last 703 plate appearances (2005)


I'll take the risk of Pena's plate discipline improving - he's 24 and flat out rakes.

a friend of mine actually used to intern at MLB.com and he had access to their beta test page... i.e. the page that they change the news on before it goes live. he once changed the cardinals page to read that they had traded Pujols and gave me the link so that i could scare the crap out of a coworker/die hard cardinals fan.

now he's a friggin gym teacher in brooklyn. talk about a downgrade.

It's too bad you can't do the same thing to scare the shit out of Chizip now...

Eh, but then you'd be scaring yourself, because you and he are the same person...



Nevermind...

i take back everything i said about the arroyo-pena trade not making any sense for either team.

my reasons?

steve phillips said the exact same thing on espnradio this morning... and i never want to be associated with anything that steve phillips said.

Did you know that Jose Vidro has a higher career OPS than Alfonso Soriano?

Neither did I, but it's true.

i want no part of alfonso soriano.

i mean if the mets go get him for next to nothing? fine... i'll deal. but i find him to be highly over-rated. he strikes out too much, has always hit in hitter friendly ballparks, is terrible in the clutch, will never be a guy to move a guy over, and he's an average fielder on his best day.

let washington deactivate him... they were the idiots who traded for him when he'd already told hte yankees and rangers he'd never play the outfield in the first place.

that would be a shaky right side of the infield w/ Soriano and Delgado

let's not forget that david wright has been known to let one fly from time to time... he's very jeter-esque in that regards - he makes a whole bunch of spectacular plays so you tend to forget that he's really not that good a fielder.

I just spent a week down in Arizona watching the Mariners and here's the results of the games I saw:

Mariners: 0-4
Opponents: 4-0

Oh well, two years ago they were great in the Spring and sucked in the regular season. All I have to say is the same thing I say every year even though it never happends: THE MARINERS ARE GOING ALL THE WAY THIS YEAR!! WOOHOOO!!

cablevision just came to a deal with SNY yesterday... so it's gonna be on cablevision, time warner and comacst... DirecTV is likely to add it shortly, dish network is up in the air and unlikely, considering they chose not to air the YES network as well.
