I hope AA makes a bunch of prank calls to John Farrell just totally trolling him. Eat it John ****ing Farrell. Enjoy your dream job with the Mass holes.

Don't hate the game, hate the players.

Jerkball Was about to bring that up but I guess it's fitting that the one with the original idea re-posts it. Gonna love the hate this team will get from other fanbases over the next season.

I would be fine with moving Davis IF we get a good enough return. I wouldn't move him unless a time overpaid. I'd simply put Sierra on the bench if a team really wanted him.

However, as much as I dislike Davis as a starter, as a 4th OF, he's great.

On a different note - am I the only one who'd prefer to move Buck and go with a tandem of Arencibia/D'Arnaud for at least a year to make sure D'Arnaud doesn't bust before making a decision??

We've gotta be hiring a Dominican manager now.

Manny Acta, born and raised in DR, coached team DR at the WBC... Expo base coach while AA was there.

It just adds up.

Perez will come back by all-star break. There is going to be plenty of depth for 2014 roster with Hutchison/Drabek/Perez and the first two will likely be in the minors which is even better.

With you 100%.

Buck and a prospect to sweeten the deal for a swingman.

JP and Bobby Wilson to start the year.

TDA and JPA to end it.

Honestly, I don't like rewarding cheaters. He got caught, he shouldn't be rewarded with a 2 year deal.

This roster has legit lefty killing ability, the problem is the Lind replacement. I say go with Davis as DH with Encarnacion at 1B.

You know, I agree. However, the Yankees have won with a bunch of guys who tested positive for PED's. I'm tired of losing to cheaters. I want to win.

Melky likely to hit 5th behind Edwin, or 4th behind Bautista? Either way we are officially stacked.

Reyes
Bonifacio
Bautista
Cabrera
Encarnacion
Rasmus
Lawrie
Lind
Arencibia

that's nasty!

This has got to be one of the best off seasons for any team in a really really long time. I'm back on the Jays bandwagon.

During the press conference AA and Beeston will have as many chairs for players as media members.

We still have one of the worst hitting 1st basemen in the MLB. I still want to see an improvement on Lind. EE should be the first baseman, and then they just have to find an average DH.
