Dodgers will give Price 10 years $250 mil or something silly like that

The pitching will be fine. We need to develop our own guys and supplement that with short term high quality veterans. The front line guys need to come from the draft.

Well in 2016 they'll give him that deal. The Rays aren't going to trade Price. Only chance he ever leaves there is if he just doesn't want to stay.

Sounds like Dempster to the Red Sox is pretty much confirmed.

The Red Sox should be rebuilding. They spent all of this money and they are still not as good as the Yankees, who might not be as good as the Jays and then you have the Rays in there too, plus a solid Baltimore team. Seems like a lot of money to put on a long shot.

They got older (Napoli, Victorino, Dempster), not better. They spent over $100 mil on those 3 players too.

Yup, I'd be pissed if I was a Red Sox fan but hey, whatever. The worst part is they have some good prospects who will be ready before these deals are up and then what? They might end up having the most expensive bench / bullpen of all time.

Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal

Sources: #Cubs in serious discussions with Anibal Sanchez. Deal could be 5 years/$75 million. #Tigers still a threat.

Cubs sign Sanchez. Very sustainable #2 at a solid deal.

Garza-Sanchez-Samardzija-Baker-Feldman is a really good rotation

I love Sanchez, Garza, and Shark at the top. Baker is a wild card. He may be a crucial fourth starter. Will be interesting to see if they trade Garza now for sure. I think maybe they should.

The #Cubs, who thought they had a deal with Sanchez,are still waiting. The #Tigers are indeed being given last chance to match.

@BNightengale
The #Cubs, among others, did not know that #Tigers would have last chance to match. And the #Tigers have just bumped their offer to Sanchez.

Ugh. Even if we still get him, I will always hesitate to get excited. This act is getting old.

There's some leak in the system. Someone needs to be fired who's in the loop.

No one significant, most likely.
