    They overpaid for him, but I'll hate seeing him in that uniform. The Rangers have had a disastorous off season. Every player they targeted (Grienke, Upton, Shields, Tori, Hamilton), they lost out on. They let Napoli walk, and traded Michael Young. The thing is, I actually think the Rangers were right in not giving all those players a huge contract, or trading for them by cleaning out the farm, because the price tag was too high. 4 years later, they might have the last laugh. But it's not 4 years later today. Today, it sucks that the Rangers are having such a horrible off-season.

    In related news, good luck to the rest of the baseball world in competing with the "we don't have a budget" Dodgers!

    Getting rid of Michael Young was absolutely the right move. He was horrid last season. And I think over the last decade it's been proven that 'budgetless' teams aren't always the best ones. Just look at us!

    While we're on the subject, I'm going to miss James Shields so much . My favourite player by so far.
    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!

    I'm sure Wil Myers will make you feel better.

    Such a dumb trade by the Royals. I could understand if they were a couple of pieces away from contention, but they're not.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I love the trade for us. I just wish it wasn't James

    R.A. Dickey's knuckleball in slow motion is mesmerizing.

    Mariners could go alright this year I reckon. They're in an absolute **** of a division but if Morse and co. can score some runs they'll do ok.

    Also need Montero, Ackley, and Smoak to show everybody why they were rated so highly as prospects. In 2010 they were ranked 4th, 11th, and 13th best prospects in all of baseball.

    Saunders and Seager need to build on promising seasons last year, and Gutierrez just needs to stay healthy.

    If all that can happen, there is an outside chance at the 2nd wildcard.

    The M's pitching and defence is fine, although they have sacrificed a bit by bringing in Morse and Ibanez.

    Well, at least Rangers fans know what it feels like to be one out away. #duckingforcover

    Mets have been so awesome so far. It seems too good to be true - probably is, tbf.
