Well, he probably wants to win while he can still play rather than hitting 700 HR or () breaking the all-time strikeout mark, but both of those things would require him to play as a DH.

Anyway, Royals made a good trade today.

Ehhhh, I don't know. Melky had a pretty damn good year last year. And Sanchez...did not.

We'll see. It could turn out to favor either side, I just don't think there's an obvious winner there in the trade.

Fuck Jonathan Sanchez.

The Giants won the shit out of that trade.

Right. I think he cares more about winning that personal records. Though Philly may not be the best place for winning at this point, either (just ask Cliff Lee).

Apparently the Marlins have dished out offers/meetings to everyone and their mother. Including names like Pujols, Reyes, Buehrle, and others.

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. Keep them fingers crossed.

Phillies could reload pretty quickly by offering a few guys arbitration instead of new contracts. Lots of high draft picks that way.

They've both had one good year, I suppose. Was Sanchez hurt? I see he only pitched 19 games.

The Marlins played ball with Ryan Madson, but it seems as though he's going to sign a 4 year deal in Philly.

Worth $44 million. You do that, Philly.

Oh lookie... there's a 5th year option on Madson's contract worth $13 million. The Phillies have gone mad.

Heath Bell as Boston's little cheaper replacement, perhaps?

Can't believe the Sox will go with Bard yet...

Jon Heyman says the Marlins are 'dead serious' about Reyes.

It'd fill in a hole at 3rd (moving Hanley over). Just... health issues... err...

That's a much more reasonable deal than I thought they were going to sign with him. He's making less than Lidge's post-World Series deal. I'm pleased.

It scares me to think the Marlins even talked to Madson if that's what he was asking. I hope they quickly laughed and hung up.

The Marlins have "jumped early on" a number of players, including Carlos Beltran, according to Yahoo's Tim Brown. This is the first time this offseason we’ve seen the Marlins linked to Beltran, but it's not the first time we've seen them linked to the offseason's top free agents.Prince Fielder, Jose Reyes, C.J. Wilson, Mark Buehrle, and Yoenis Cespedes are among the many players who have been linked to the Marlins so far this offseason.
Seriously... it's too good to be true. Jumping early?

They better not get all of this press and then let everyone down.
