    They need another pitcher more than they needed Fielder. A lot more.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Verlander/Fister/Scherzer/Porcello/Turner isn't the worst of rotations.

    They needed an impact bat after VMart went down. Getting Fielder makes a lot of sense, paying out the nose on a 9yr contract does not.

    That's assuming Fister is actually as good as his half a season in Detroit suggests. I wouldn't bet on it.

    He was great all of last year, he just got more run support in Detroit. And he was pretty decent in 2010 too, always had great command but learnt to strike batters out.

    He is due for a bit of regression, but he is still a more than capable number 2. Hardly walks a batter, and gets a lot of ground balls. He isn't pitching in Safeco any more, but Comerica is still pretty pitcher friendly, iirc.

    They have 3 DH's hooked up to rather large contracts. 2013-2014 they will have close to $60m tied up on 3 players with only one position between them.


    They've basically gone to Vegas and put all the savings on black.
    so where is cabrera going to play now i dont think he would want to dh anytime soon

    also i think they will have a longer window than 3 yrs all three are only in their late 20s

    Good luck with that.

    He started off at 3B, moved to LF and then to 1B, and his weight has only gone one way.

    Josh Hamilton has another relapse with alcohol

    Addiction is a disease and I truly feel bad for the guy. Having said that, we're all responsible for our actions in life and he just cost himself any chance of getting a long term deal with the Rangers. You simply can't trust him.

    Game 162

    A great piece by Tampa Bayís Sam Fuld on the last game of the season. It was such a riveting night watching the Red Sox collapse and the Rays make that epic comeback. I donít think Iíve ever been as entertained by a regular season day in baseball as I was that day.

    New post season structure, is a go for this season.

    Going to be a mess this year since they didn't change the schedule, but I think it is a good move. Winning the division is now rewarded, and the WC teams have some kind of penalty. The only problem for this year is the 2-3 format for the lds series. Hopefully this gets sorted out for next year.
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    Darvish will be making his debut against my M's.

    Hopefully that game will be free on MLB.tv. Even better if it's Darvish vs Noesi.
