Hes back, Chicago: Cubs close to deal with Kerry Wood




But They finalized the minor league deals with former Cubbies Mark Prior and Neal Cotts. And I read on yahoo.com that they might go after Carlos Big Z Zambrano. And they already hired the Cubbies former pitching coach.

Interesting.

White Sox made another good move. Signing Jessie Crain not only helps their bullpen but weakens Minnesota's.

The once mighty Yankees are now looking at Bartolo Colon who has not pitched since 2009. George must be rolling over in his grave.

The Yanks signed Mark Prior yesterday. Might as well phone in the pennant for them.


Can't believe the Cubs let Ryne Sandberg leave the org.

He will be Charlie Manuel's replacement in a couple of years.

Is it baseball season yet?? From boston.com...

Adrian Beltre signed with the Red Sox one year ago tomorrow.

If you had told Theo Epstein that day that Beltre would have such a monster year that he would become a Type A free agent and bring back two draft picks in return, it's likely he would have laughed.

One year later, bingo. Beltre has agreed to terms with Texas on a five-year deal pending a physical according to multiple sources. Unless the Rangers sign Rafael Soriano, the No. 26 pick belongs to the Sox.

The Red Sox turned Beltre, Victor Martinez, three prospects and their own first round pick into Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and four draft picks. Beltre and Martinez would have cost them at least $27 million in 2011. Gonzalez and Crawford will get $26.3 million.

Not a bad deal.

Bert Blyleven and Roberto Alomar getting in the Hall is announced today. I can't argue with either choice. Blyleven should have been in a long time ago IMO.

A few I think should also be in: Lee Smith, Tim Raines, Don Mattingly & Alan Trammell. Maybe Jack Morris as well.

No arguments here. I'm happy for Blyleven finally getting in.

He could easily have had 325 - 350 wins. He pitched on some bad teams.

I'm old school. With all due respect to all of your opinions.
The HOF has become a watered down popularity contest. All Bert Blyleven did was pitch long enough to get the numbers he did..like Don Sutton.
Would you want any of those two pitching a game 7 of the World Series over Jack Moris..or even Ron Guidry?
No.
You need to dominate your position to get in, not just accumilate numbers.
Alomar was a no brainer...brilliant player.

I've read that sports writers, once they get the privledge to vote, never lose it. They can vote on players they have barely, or even never seen. Jim Rice they made wait till his last year of eligiblity to let him him because he was so disliked, which was a joke.
Ever look at Albert Belles numbers? Maybe only Ty Cobb was hated more..haha.
He will never get in, but based on current criteria, probably belongs.

My Orioles will be a team to be reckon'd with

Interesting picks..

I disliked Alomar his entire career.. More so after the "spitting incident". I dont have a big problem with him getting into The Hall though.

As for Blyleven.. I agree. He is only in because he hung around long enough to accumulate stats.
But if they put him in, they also have to out Mussina in when he is due.

Blyleven(22 seaons) - 287 Wins,250 losses (.534 WP) 3.31 era

Moose (18 seasons) - 270 Wins 153 losses(.638 WP) 3.68 era ( in the Roid era, BTW)


I dont see any way they shut him out.. So for that, I am happy BB is in.

And Mattingly's vote % is dropping every year

Interesting comparison. While Blyleven had good post season stats, he spit the bit many times when the going was tough. If Moose was his teamate he would have kicked Cryleven's butt across the room.

The man did have the second best curveball 9after Koufax) I ever saw.

BTW is he the first Dutch born HOF? As edgy as he was he obviously didn't spend enough time in Amsterdam

Different articles I have read have said that it is because while he was an "elite" player, he just did not stay at that level long enough.
Effin injuries.

I heard it was because there are too many unqualified yankees in the hall already.

The length of Mattingly's career has always been the knock against him making The Hall. I don't understand that. As a point of reference, I would use Kirby Puckett as an example and he only played parts of 12 seasons but he is in. It's so subjective and there's no real barometer for what constitutes a lengthy career.

On the other hand, I have also heard that Blyleven only made it because of his lengthy career as Chuck points out, as well as Don Sutton and Phil Niekro among others.

Can you have it both ways? Regarding pitchers, some of the stats starters put up ending in about the 80s will likely never be matched because of how the game has changed. Mike Mussina and Jack Morris come to mind. When pitchers with ~200 wins start getting elected can they really keep out guys like the two I just mentioned?
