Patrick Sharp, coming off a steroid suspension? lol

Best shot.

I tried looking at the stats to get a feel for it, but with 0 baseball knowledge, I don't know how good this guy stacks up against your average MLB player.

The best comp I could think of is Michael Ryder coming off that 30+ goal season w/ Dallas.

Good player, high ceiling and high floor. Could be great, but at worst is slightly above average.

It was Selig who said he couldnt find a legal way to block this trade. No need to be worried.

call him an 80pt playmaking forward, who last year scored like 130pts but was busted for steroids so it may be skewed

What? Miami market is never going to be big... Toronto has the ability to generate a lot of money so why wouldn't Bud want that?

And this deal is basically done. Physicals just need to be done and that's it. Selig can't do anything to veto the trade when it's a legit baseball trade.

As long as it comes with more than a one year warranty. Don't want it breaking after a year and losing it for nothing.

well, we know AA wouldn't buy a water slide without a number of controllable years of warranty

What do you guys think of signing Marcum as our 5th starter? A possibility? Good idea? Bad idea?

What I really like is the fact that his OBP before his steroid season last year has been pretty good. 2 hole is very necessary
If Melky has the kind of season he has last year and his OBP is up around .390, you are correct. He has to hit in the two hole.

However, looking at the last couple of years, it wouldn't surprise me if Melky and Bonifacio are relatively similar in OBP.

If it is comparable, it only makes sense to have Bonifacio in the two hole with his superior speed/base stealing ability and Melky in the five hole with his superior SLG.
