Cervelli is indeed terrible and not super young either. I'd go with Romine over him also between the two at this point.

Romine's a good prospect, but he basically lost a whole year to injuries -- it's tough to bump him straight up to the majors after a 100 at bat 2012.

I read about that. That's sad.

Ruben is going to do something stupid. i keep on thinking I will get out of work one day and will be driving home listening to the radio about about him doing something very foolish. Like the rumor about Soriano for Brown. The end result is me crashing and killing myself . Stand pat Ruben.

Brown is garbage and if Cubs eat up that salary, it's a win for Philly.

I think fist pumps and comically large helmets are the missing ingredient.

This was inevitable. Doubt we got anything of note in return.

I have have no idea what Matheny and/or Mozeliak's problem with the guy was. He can play all 3 OF spots and 2B, hits ~.300 and is a great clubhouse guy.


EDIT: Cards got SS Jake Lemmerman.

Sources: Ichiro to #Yankees will happen, not quite done. Sides still talking about structure - dollars, years. @cc660 of WFAN reported done.

Rays about to sign the pitcher formerly known as Fausto Carmona. Since his 2007 campaign, Carmona is the second worst pitcher in the league.

Hernandez being that poor from 2008 onwards is pretty impressive too because that includes a decent 2010 season.

If Carpenter could play 2B, I'd love our lineup

6 Furcal
8 Jay
7 Holliday
9 Beltran
3 Craig
5 Freese
2 Molina
4 Carpenter
Pitcher

Garbage? He just needs to improve his defense. He will hit around .265-.275 and will have an OBP% of around .355-365. Yup, that is garbage.

Definitely no guarantee of that. The only bright side to his MLB experience is that he's put up about a 10% walk rate.

@Buster_ESPN: As Ichiro signs with the Yankees, he'll be turning down a two-year, $14 million offer from the Phillies.

Ichiro loves Ocean access, apparently.

Price declining by the day and just might end up back with Detroit after all. Which would be great.
