Nice day to be a White Sox fan signing 1B Paul Konerko for three years.


Very unhappy with the Flubs signing 1B Carlos Pena and his .198 batting average.

Pena will hit 50 home runs in Wrigley.



That was likely the thought but ya never know with the wind there off the lake. You can be sitting behind the plate and have the wind blowing in your face.

At least they got another good defensive 1B.

The Yankees need to get an answer from Andy Pettitte who still performed at an extremely high level last year. Either way they will go all out to sign Lee. If Pettitte retires they need Lee or the rotation will really be weak. If Pettitte returns they probably have the best rotation in baseball with Lee on board.


Lee needs to stay in Texas!

Thats a fluke, IMO..

Trust me, this dude is a BEAST.

I am SO freaking happy he is out of TB.. he used to kill the Yanks.
Maybe he can bring Evan Longoria with him?

How's this for a lineup?

Ellsbury CF
Pedroia 2B
Crawford LF
Gonzalez 1B
Youkilis 3B
Ortiz DH
Drew RF
Scutaro SS
Saltalamacchia C

The bench shapes up to be Cameron, Lowrie, Varitek and either Darnell McDonald or another infielder.

The Sox are a bit too left-handed. But if you're going to tilt one way, better to tilt that way with superstars like Crawford and Gonzalez. Plus Cameron can sub for Drew and Ortiz and get plenty of at-bats.

If the Sox were looking for the kind of team that will boost the NESN ratings, they have it. Crawford may be the most exciting player in baseball, a guy who has incredible speed, a Gold Glove in left and last season had 62 extra-base hits. Then you have Gonzalez, a hitter with power to all fields who might hit 40 home runs next season with how well he drives the ball the other way.

Crawford is perhaps the best example of how baseball teams need to built in the post-steroid era, with versatility, athleticism, speed and defense. He has never hit 20 home runs in a single season but the Red Sox obviously feel he was the player who could put them over the top.

Now the Yankees must counter this move. Cliff Lee is a happy man tonight, knowing there is no acceptable fallback position for the Yankees or Rangers. They must have him now and the bidding could skyrocket. This too benefits the Red Sox given the risks to signing a pitcher to a long-term deal.

It certainly sets up a fun summer in the AL East.

The Yankees upped the offer to Lee to seven years. Word is that he will go for the biggest payday period. The Yankees have signalled that they will not lose him over money.

Today is Ron Santo's funeral. After the funeral there will be a procession from downtown north to end at Wrigley Field. A fitting tribute.

Their MO from the day George took ownership in 1973

Lee will just sit back and watch the bidding war, then go with NY -- they'll be offering more money, plus you know Jr. is smarting over the Sox Crawford signing ... "the Yankees will not be outspent"

it's a little sickening, but again, baseball the way it's been for a long time now...still a great game between the lines

You know who must be thrilled the Red Sox landed Carl Crawford? Jason Varitek.

Crawford has stolen 35 consecutive stolen bases against the Red Sox, the longest streak by a player since Vince Coleman swiped 57 in a row against the Mets from 1985-90. The last time Crawford was caught stealing by the Red Sox was on Sept. 21, 2005 when Tim Wakefield caught him leaning.

You have to go back to 2004 for the last time a catcher threw him out. That was Varitek.

If you can't beat him, sign him.

Looking less likely that Lee will join the Yankees. He may have leveraged enough from Texas to stay where he was happy.

And, unless baseball comes up with a better salary cap this is all going to stop being fun.

And, btw, even in the richest cities we all help pay for a good part of this in assistance, tax breaks, etc.

If the Yankees do not get Lee they have serious trouble all of a sudden.

The Arod contract (and I said it then) may be their undoing yet. Posada's deal was insane. Sabathia waas a good pick up but at over 300lbs I think the knee is a harbinger of things to come. I hope they let Montiero have his shot rather than picking up (?is it Martin?) to catch. You need some young blood homegrown to mix it up.

The Bronx might not be the ideal place for somebody with an anxiety problem. Zach could come unhinged in that atmosphere.

The Braves are showing some interest.

Also Melky Cabrera and Jeff Francouer have signed with the Braves AAAA farm team in KC.

Kansas City Royals Add Mediocre Outfielders in Melky Cabrera and Jeff Francoeur
By
Adam Bernacchio

For those Kansas City Royal fans who thought the last 15 years were the worst, wait until they get a load of next year. The Royals might have the best farm system in baseball and are gearing up for 2013, but they are officially in bottom-out mode in 2011.

The team GM Dayton Moore is going to field in 2011 will be the worst team in baseball. Outside of Zack Greinke, who will most likely get traded, and Billy Butler and Joakim Soria, this team has zero talent on their roster.

And their recent acquisitions haven’t helped the situation either.

This week, the Royals signed outfielders Jeff Francoeur ($2.5 million) and Melky Cabrera ($1.25 million) to one-year contracts. To sign one free-agent scrub outfielder, who doesn’t walk is tough, but to sign two of them? Well, that’s the equivalent to Chinese water torture.

Both Francoeur and Cabrera are fourth and fifth outfielders on most teams, but will be everyday players with the Royals. Not only will they be everyday players with the Royals, but looking at their depth chart, I could see Francoeur batting in the middle of their lineup.

That’s how bad this team will be in 2011.

Here is their—or I should say my—projected lineup for 2011:

1. Getz, 2B

2. Aviles, 3B

3. Butler, DH

4. Francoeur, RF

5. Ka’aihue, 1B

6. Gordon, LF

7. Cabrera, CF

8. Kendall, C

9. Betancourt, SS

I just threw up in my mouth as I typed out this lineup. I have seen more talent at a strip club in Milwaukee on a Tuesday night than there is in this mess of a lineup.

And don’t get me started on Cabrera. I was quite pleased when he was exposed as a fraud in Atlanta this season. Nothing angered me more than New York Yankee fans walking around with Cabrera jerseys on, telling me how good he was. I felt like I was talking crazy pills.

He was a clown in New York that just so happened to be surrounded by eight All-Stars. Anybody with some sanity would have noticed that Cabrera isn’t a starting-caliber center fielder on a Major League club.

I can only imagine how poor he is going to be surrounded by nobodies in KC.

The Royals are in the bottom-out phase of Moore’s plan, which means they need to sign mediocre veterans to fill out the starting lineup. It’s like when they signed guys like Terrence Long, Reggie Sanders, Jose Lima and Matt Stairs at the end of their careers to start in years past.

It’s going to be at least two years before top prospects like Mike Montgomery, Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Tim Melville and Aaron Crow contribute at the Major League level. Until then, there are going to be some more lean years in Kansas City.
