I don't think there's any chance it was us. 

That Pujols line is tough to read.

Jeff, Arte always says he'd go over the threshold "for the right player".  Do you see that happening soon? 

Espinosa, Chavez, Valbuena, Street and Richards. $34 million! Talk about a crap return on your investment

Simmons, Maldonado, Petit, Meyer and Bridwell. $14 million.

Cha-Ching!

Hopefully the Angels claimed him. He plays great defense and Cowart is better at 3rd. Do you really want to see more of Marte and Valbuena at 3rd? 

 

Cowart is already back in the doghouse (apparently) because he couldn't maintain a .400+ BA.  What makes you think he'd get starts at 3B over Marte or Valbuena?

That sounds like when I tell my daughter "I'll think about it."

Add Ghost Pujols and Hackilton.

Think about it.   $80+ million AAV to net basically ZILCH other than Ghost Pujols' .650 OPS

Escobar is kind of a douche too.

He's more of a goof than a douche. Kind of like Aybar but stranger.

It was probably Dipoto. He wants to ship Segura over to Detroit but the Tigers are asking for Paxton as well. Dipoto is considering it.

Not surprised, the fantasy trade deadlines are almost up and he's not going to get anymore use out of Paxton to try and win the regular season anyway.

That makes a lot of sense to be honest, Jonathan Villar has been severely under-performing.

The Brewers have been underperforming

I understand that, I just seem to recall that the Halos were pretty close to being over the threshold...though in February they were about 10 million under. Not sure if there were any significant additions to that number. Maybe @Jeff Fletcher can chime in at some point. He gets paid to know that kind of stuff!

He posted it yesterda, in case you missed it.

Anybody else see this trade coming in the off-season? Bringing in Kinsler, based on his what he did prior to this season and ignoring his obvious decline, would fit in perfectly with Arte/Sosh's track record. The only thing that would make him more attractive to Arte is is he had about an extra 3 or 4 years and 50+ million left on his deal.

Tigers can pickup his $10M option for 2018 and then trade him. I would kick the tires on a trade if that happens.

Did you actually go back a month to frankenstein a thread about Ian Kinsler to take a cliched whack at Arte and Scioscia?

 

 

that's kind of sad
