    Chris Sale wasn't traded, seemed like GMs were more conservative this go around in terms of going after a top ace.

    Rangers gave up a lot of Prospects but I'm only concerned about the ones in the Lucroy deal. Rangers have a history of dealing the right prospects without getting burned (except for Chris Davis to the Orioles but I think he needed that trade to reach his full potential). I'm only concerned about how they will do since the rotation has been severely weakened due to injury. Overall, great trades imo.

    According to Rosenthal, Puig won't travel with the Dodgers. I'm guessing they're about to put his ass on waivers...

    The fuck you mean cockblocked out of baseball? He's in his 40's, playing like shit, and he's taking a role with the team to help younger players in a similar way to how Bonds got a job with the Marlins.

    Seriously, how are you cockblocked out of a game when you're still hired by the team?

    Hes at 696, theyre not even letting him try to get to 700? I call it cockblocked because at least let the man finish the year. The yanks arent going anywhere this year to be worried about releasing a-rod.

    The odds of him getting to 700 were slim to none since they're not playing him anymore. If this were pre-PED A-Rod 700 would be a big deal. But now even if he got to that number it wouldn't mean much. Plus I don't think he cares much about that since from what I read he's getting the rest of his money from his contract anyway, just in a different role.

    No, he's signing with the Yankees as a special advisor through 12/31/17, so he's not going anywhere else until then. But at his age who's taking him?

    The Mariners. The Mariners are taking him for at least $30M for a year. Retire with the team that drafted him.

    And bring them a title.

    Right but he could turn that position down and try to play baseball elsewhere. If I understood Cashman correctly.

    A-Rod becoming an "adviser".......

    Just release him and pay out the rest of his contract without this publicity stunt. I'm pretty sure Alex will get over those tears at his Miami, Florida mansion, swimming in money like Scrooge McDuck.

    Well in that case, go back to the Northwest, A-Rod.

    His new fun-over talkative side to try to be likable, stuffing all those sunflower seeds in his face with that weird lady's show with Garbage in the name (from the commercial spot) or in the press box for TV commentating during those World Series last year.

    Can't hide his giant minotaur painting front and center in his house.

    BIG PAPI so much press. Looked up his hit total. Pete Rose won't be hating. Damn, on a triple too Ichiro?!

    First 200... 250 million dollar man? Texas opened the floodgates for Stanton, Kershaw, etc. today

    Those playoff numbers, not clutch, definitely not even close to Bonds in that respect.

    If qb accuracy is anything to go for, he bats for .180 or has a 50% walk rate

    The type of guy who goes overtly racist over someone dancing in a dunk contest. As if High School David Lee on ESPN didn't take his jersey off during a cartwheel before his dunk.

    Shoutouts to crazyass Milton Bradley who probably ended his career in Japan and Chone Figgins!

    And never getting to the postseason in Seattle past his rookie year? He was the only sole reason to watch Seattle Baseball for a decade.

    Shit like that is just one of the many reasons the team has been shit for the last decade plus. Probably got fuckers in that clubhouse now saying the same shit about Felix or Cano or Cruz, instead of doing their own damn job and not keeping the team in mediocrity with their shittiness.

    Wouldn't surprise me if Zunino was one of them.

    Milton Bradley. LOL. They deserved everything that came with that signing.

    That sucks, Prince seemed like a great guy. Hopefully he can live a somewhat normal life, neck surgery must be tough.

    Kind of unfortunate that the media is already talking about his contract but, baseball is big money. Even though I'm a Rangers fan, I would just keep collecting those paychecks if I were Prince.

    Tigers only pay $6 Million and Rangers pick up the rest so

    Well now the Yankees are cockblocking A-Rod by keeping him out of the lineup until tomorrow. Practically a lost season for them, in front of Boston fans for a set, and they won't even let him go out to get booed one last time on the road before letting him get booed one last time at home. Should probably renege on the advisor job and go sign with the Sox for that one last fuck you they're giving him.
