How on earth did the Indians pull of getting Stubbs and Bauer for Choo?

The D-Backs are going to need to fire their general manager, they've unloaded Parker and Bauer in back to back offseasons for meager return.

Yah that trade just doesn't make sense from Arizona's pov. Given the return for Bauer I'm surprised they haven't given Upton away already.

I think Arizona is pissed about Bauer's character. I guess he's a big me first guy....Cleveland's win.

Arizona is great at accumulating prospects, and then unloading the good ones in terrible trades (see carlos gonzales)

That is definitely contrary to the Pirates who don't produce any talent and over value them if anyone talks trade.

Apparantly the Angels are about to sign Hamilton....jfc. MLB needs to do something about these broadcasting rights because this is getting really absurd, really quick.

Torii Hunter is pissed. Apparently Angels management told him that they couldn't sign him because they didn't have the money, but somehow pulled $25 mil/yr out of their ***.

@toriihunter48

I was told money was tight but I guess the Arte had money hidden under a Mattress. Business is business but don't lie.

Angels are gonna set the runs record next year. Trout, Pujols, and Hamilton are 3 of the top 10 (if not top 5) most dangerous hitters in all of baseball.

Wow, Tigers just gave Anibal Sanchez 5 years 80 Million.

I will say, that every immovable contract another team in MLB makes is a benefit for the Pirates. The more AJ Burnett situations the better (guys not living up to their contract and being run out of town)

Must be nice to be able to sign a guy to 5/80 and have him be your 4th starter.

Until your unable to sign your number 2 and 3 guys cause they want to use Sanchez as their benchmark....or you end up having to swing deals to get under the luxury tax.
