2012-13 MLB Off-Season Thread

Recommended Posts

Hope Melky has lots to prove this year. And maybe Braun coming back this year just as strong relieved any pause they might have had, though obviously two totally different guys. Still, a huge off-season and hopefully more to come.

Amazing part with the Blue Jays is they still don't have a manager.

How many guys are chomping at the bit to get that job right now? And they're the only vacant spot left, so they can take their sweet time interviewing any potential candidates.

Following the trend, they'll just give it to John Olerud.

Regarding Tracy and Riggles, just saw it on TSN late last week, nothing is for certain.

Trade also finally approved.

The trade is terrible, but what grounds did Bud have to block it? He never did it before he could not start now.

Baseball reasons.

Baseball reasons, but how many other bad trades did Selig let slip by

I don't know, I was just making a joke.

But seriously, I suppose you could intercede based on the fact that the Marlins have already had their dicks slapped for collecting handsome revenue sharing with a bare-bones payroll, though that press release did say they were off the hook after 2012. Oh man, I bet those little CSers had it planned all along.

In response to our concerns that revenue sharing proceeds have not been used as required, the Marlins have assured the Union and the Commissioner's Office that they plan to use such proceeds to increase player payroll annually as they move toward the opening of their new ballpark. Today's agreement, which covers the period 2010 through 2012, calls for ongoing communication among the Marlins, the Commissioner's Office and the Union as the Marlins proceed with that plan.

Damn it.
