Is this a joke? I want him fanning Jeter with palm leaves as Jeter rests by the pool.

Houston tried to get creative and instead ended up not signing their #1 draft pick. While I have some sympathy in that it's ridiculous teams have to be judicious with their signing bonus money while they can fritter away millions on relief pitchers, they tried to back out of an agreement with Aiken to save money and Aiken wasn't going for it.

I'm glad the Cardinals finally got a Sunday night game. Finally getting some respect and attention from espn. Seems like it's almost been an entire week since their last appearance

Is this the worst-ever throw to first base?

Some teams that are dealing with the Phillies say they are having difficulty gaining traction in talks;not sure if PHI committed to dealing.


Of course they aren't committed. They still think salvation is one free agent signing away.

Speaking of Philly, they reportedly told the Dodgers they wanted LA's top three prospects (Pedersen, Seager and Urias, all top 20 prospects according to Baseball America) for Hamels. Uh, good luck with that.

I hope Ruben Amaro, Jr. is in Philly forever.

They have no interest at all in melting that team down and starting over. It's glorious. They can't give away Howard. Pieces that should have value (Burnett and Byrd) are hard to move because Amaro gave them dumb contracts that depress their value. Because he can't get value anywhere else Amaro is trying to make it all up with the Hamels deal.

And I'm not sure what it would take for the Phillies to muster the stones to fire him, either. The Phillies make the Flyers appear completely estranged as far as being all in the family goes. Larry Bowa, for instance, is on his 4th stint with the team.
