Cody Ross with a Walk-Off 3-Run Homerun!

That's 3 3-Run homers in the last 2 games for CoRo! This line-up will be lethal one everyone's completely healthy!

I'm gonna make a disclaimer here. I am not a true baseball fan like many here. I'm working on getting into it, with hockey being my first love.

With that said, as a little kid I have great memories of playing as Ichiro on my copy of Triple Play 2002. Because of this, I have fond memories of him in a Mariners sweater. I like that he saw the Mariners weren't going anywhere and requested a trade to help the team he's been with his entire MLB career build for the future. The only thing I don't like about the deal is the team he went to...but that's because I call myself a Rays fan. :P

After a bit of thought, this deal makes sense, and although I'm blue now. Happy for Ichiro, the best lead off hitter ever deserves a chance at a World Series. After the following 3 games. Go Yanks.

Hopefully this sets up a trade for King Felix to Boston.

Ok, probably not. But I can dream. :cry:

Another blowout loss at the hands of the Rangers. This week isn't going to be a good one. The locker room really needs a shakeup (Josh Beckett).

Felix has a no trade clause and loves the City. He isn't moving anywhere.

Jays get the win to avoid the series sweep. Next up is Detroit.

Felix has a no trade clause and loves the City. He isn't moving anywhere.

The recent Hamels re-signing is probably an ominous one for the M's. That is a lot of money (I think it was 144M over 6 years), that is going to be a huge pill to have to swallow to re-sign Felix. I don't care how much you love a city, when it comes time to re-sign, if the bling shows up somewhere else, there is only so much home town discount you will take. Not to mention, that someone like him almost has to get the most he can, because it will allow others to fall into place within his union. If he takes a bath, then other players will have to match up in line with him, meaning they will take a bath. It is the only real thing the players have to work with leverage wise with contracts.

Went to the Jays game yesterday. Was great! Other then the fact it was Camp Day and I sat beside screaming 6 yearolds.... Thankfully their buses had to leave in the 6th inning :P I need to do my homework next time.

Segura's actually a VERY good prospect. #1 in the Angels Farm System in fact. Hellweg is the 7th best prospect and Pena is # 14 on their list. Segura will be the SS of the future for the Brewers. Not that bad a return when you get your future SS and a couple of solid prospects for a possible 2 months of Greinke who might not have re-signed in Milwaukee anyway.

That said I hope Cherington makes a splash. Hopefully by picking up a big-name Short Stop or Starting Pitcher if those reports are true. Really just hoping he can find a way to get rid of Beckett.

Double post:

Great to take 2/3 from the Yankees. Nice to see Bobby V and Beckett get ejected too. Good to see some some emotion from 'em. Should be interesting to see what Tuesday brings.

ya the brewers are in need of SS. but giving up a CY Young winner?? Greinke said he loved it in Milwaukee, so im thinking he would have resigned with the Brewers. I also think the Brewers should have got a starter to fill that open spot in the rotation.
