I guess this is why Jim Bowden is no longer a GM. I definitely think we aren't getting nearly enough in return in that deal to include Palanco

That proposal has me really curious as to what Bowden would think is a fair deal for Geronimo Stanton.

Pretty sure you can find that earlier in this thread, it was something like Polanco, Taillon, Hansen and another player. Too lazy to go look it up.

That offer was from one of ESPN's baseball bloggers.

Maybe everyone over at ESPN should stick to investigating Kobe unfollowing Dwight Howard on Twitter, instead of just the on air talent

Its going to cost less than that proposal to get a package like that, but more than what most around here seem to expect.

I like Justin Morneau and Kendrys Morales.

Might as well improve 1B and move Jones to right if the Pirates think he'll eventually hit again.

Very cool picture that surfaced today (at least I had never seen it before). Taken from the top of the Cathedral of Learning, looking down at Forbes Field moments after Bill Mazeroski smashed the game winning HR in the 1960 WS.

My Uncle has had a framed version of that picture on his wall since I was in highschool. It is an awesome picture. The photographer actually did a whole series of photos of Pittsburgh. I believe he worked for Time.

Why do I feel like every day I see something about The Virus doing something good for the Yankees? Hit a grand slam today.
