In response to MadMc1944's comment: Time will tell. Lester is a good pitcher and could probably get 8 and 25 from the Mariner's especially after they offered more than the Yanks were willing to go wit more »

In response to jasko2248's comment: The "stats" might say Morales is "adequate" as a defensive first baseman, but nobody wants the guy playing there for them. 1st base is a crucial defensive position more »

In response to Joebreidey's comment: On Drew, my understanding is that he's gotten some offers, but he's holding out for more. On Morales, he's not really that good. ~ .782 each of the past two seaso more »

In response to pumpsie-green's comment:More than likely Drew is getting some bad advice from his agent.

In response to craze4sox's comment: Snyder was probably an equal talent and it doesn't matter if you are a veteran because the guy can't field or hit. How does this help Bogy? I just don't understan more »

The Miami Marlins could be contenders in the nearly three seasons Giancarlo Stanton remains under team control. I don't see a trade of Stanton.

In my rotisserie league I could've kept CC Sabathia for $36 and Jon Lester for $10, but I put them back into the pool. At Saturday's auction, I took Sabathia for $11 while Lester went for $7. Lester h more »
