Didn't see this posted anywhere. Lincecum signs a 2 yr 40.5mil deal. Sounds like he wants to hit free agency depending on the team's outlook at that time.
He doesn't seem intent on posting anything sensible. He's clearly way in over his head discussing a sport in which he has no knowledge about.

As for Lincecum, that's good speculation. However, the Giants will also be unloading a ton of salary around that time so you can expect them to be able to afford Lincecum. With Cain being a free-agent after this season, no way will they risk losing them both.

Yes. I can. And my mind can separate reality from immaginary things; can yours?

No way do you pay a guy, who barely even makes the top ten players in baseball, that much money. The fact he got even close to what Pujols had signed for is disgusting.

ps. Not any team can look dangerous on paper. In fact I could ramble off a quite a few teams that don't look dangerous on paper, the Jays being one of them.

Baseball differences aside...

So you can imagine Cabrera playing third, but see him as a DH? Do you not see the problem here? If not, let's just say I can imagine the Leafs winning a Stanley Cup under Ron Wilson as a head coach. Let's just say 'probably not' though.

You are right, Go Leafs Go.

Please, please. Get a clue.

Any link that tells me, Fielder wanted to come here or Darvish himself saying 'Toronto was a top choice' may earn your credability back.

Fantastic signing. Cordero + Santos + Oliver at half the cost is much greater than having Papelbon, Madson, etc. I love our bullpen work this year. It will be a serious weapon.
