So the Yankees lost out on the Japanese Babe Ruth. They didn't get mad. They got Stanton!

25 million guaranteed for 10 years. As a Cubs fan I am more than happy that you guys have him and we don't.

Red Sox announced earlier today that they were going with a purely left-handed line-up and they are making the Green Monster 200 feet high. Should be an interesting season.

Bryce Harper will get more. In 2 years it will be a bargain. He has an out after 2020. Guarantee barring devastating injury he exercises it, just like A-Rod.

Damn - what a lineup that's going to be........ As violently as he swings, have to wonder if his body will hold up - or end up being like Pujols?

Stanton to Yankees = Harper to Cubs next year.

 

One team just took themselves out of the running.

That's what I'm afraid of, Theo has a track record of being horrible in free agency. Hopefully Jed the GM has a more level head

Don't be so sure.

 

Theo butted heads with Larry Luch, often.

 

Larry Luch was the guy that wanted the big name free agent splash.

The Yankees are going to have to get creative to acquire some pitching. They seem serious about staying under the cap.

Imagine if they were the ones still paying Sandoval instead of the Red Sox?

Don't forget they got Texas to take Prince Fielder and most(?) of his massive contract. And they got rid of Verlander's as well, although he "earned" it last year.

But MC has a lot of years left on his. I don't know what PF had left when he was dealt. MC will be past 40 when this is up.

Rangers bargain basement buying pitching arms again. Why? Bcoz this organization can't develop their own arms - never have been able to.

Yes. Before him it was Mel Stottlmyre. They traded some good ones away, Doug Drabek and Jose Rio stand out. Did you know the Mets drafted Clemens and wouldn't go up 10k to keep him from going to college? Imagine Gooden and Clemens?

Between the coke and the roids Clemens and Gooden would have been some duo. Roger really could have helped him out.
