Oh I know there's many months to come in the off-season. It's just that normally I'm not used to watching this stuff. Usually I just wait until Spring Training because that's the only relevant time in the off-season for the Marlins. Now there's all this anticipation. It's killin me.

It's the Marlins way out of having to sign him.

"Oh yeah we really want him!"

"Oh... wait... what's this? He's a LIAR! Of course we don't want him now!"

I think it's probably a good hire for Boston.

What say our contingent of Red Sox fans?

I like it, although I found the process to finally get to him a bit odd.

The "idiots" are long gone, and we were left with real idiots.

Valentine should be good in the short term, I don't think he's here long term though.

because not pitching for 2 years wasn't enough of a tell-tale sign

Pedro Martinez will soon officially announce retirement | MLB.com: News

there's a good video in there of pete striking out 17 yankees

It's going to be really unfortunate if he turns out to be the biggest FA they sign this offseason.

I think Boston is waiting for Farrell to become available from Toronto. Valentine should be entertaining for a few seasons though and a good baseball move by ownership (it wasn't the GM's first choice imo).



...and I miss Heidi Watney already

I agree, although the chances of that look very small. I'd imagine the goal now would be Bell + Reyes + Buehrle/Wilson. That's what seems to fit in the money plan, and it's my understanding that Reyes actually has intentions of coming to Miami.

At this point I'd be upset if reyes was the opening day shortstop for the Mets.

Well from a Marlin perspective you've gotta imagine it's a good thing. We've got gaping holes at 3rd and CF, as well as a horrible rotation.

Getting Reyes would effectively fill in that 3B spot with Hanley, leaving CF as the only unaddressed issue. We have Bonifacio, but I'd rather him just be the best utility player in the league than an average CF.

reyes is a dynamic talent. a true franchise changing player. the type of player who you build your entire lineup around... the type of player that changes the way you approach the game.

when healthy.

and that's the problem... he's had one healthy season in his career.

it also helps if you're winning, because he tends to get lazy when things don't go well.

I'd take 120 games of amazing over 160 games of slightly above average.
