They're expecting 115,000 for the Sox/Dodgers exhibition at the LA Coliseum

That's insane for an exhibition game. I appreciate the sentiment and all because it is the coliseum, but a real game would have been even better.

Adam Eaton continues to suck, but is "not worried" about losing his spot in the rotation.

But at least he admits he sucks.

Quotable: Even Eaton Himself Knows He's Overpaid

It's possible you're of the opinion that a 3-year deal worth $24 million is excessive for an oft-(but not oft enough) injured starter who put up the worst ERA in the NL last year. We'd tend to agree. And ya know what? So does said pitcher, Adam Eaton.

"I'm getting paid extremely handsomely, probably more than I'm worth. But everyone is not worth what they're getting paid."

Here's hoping there's a Kyle Kendrick in the minors somewhere. Maybe it's Carrasco's year to surprise everyone by sprouting early. Anything to keep Eaton out of the fifth starter's position. Question is, where do you put him? He's atrocious in the 1st inning, as demonstrated again yesterday, so relief work isn't exactly looking like his second calling. I say give him a rake and at least get something for your money.

Adam Eaton should talk to Carl Pavano about being overpaid and oft-injured.

Yeah but at least Carly's better when he can actually pitch.

And he gets additional points for dating Alyssa Milano

Well, he dismisses it by saying, "I'm overpaid, but so is everyone else."

I'm still convinced he never got hurt last season, and that they were gonna keep him out for the year just because he sucked so much ... only Hamels got hurt and they needed him back.

Well, hopefully for the Mets, it won't be I Love Rocky Road.

Poor, Moises. He can't catch a break.

I wonder if Steve Bartman sends Moises some balloons while he's in the hospital.
