I've never been a huge Theo fan at all. I really hope he can rebuild the Cubs but I have my doubts. Cubs deserve some success gosh darnet! lol

we'll survive without him but his clutchness in the playoffs will be missed.

Couldn't have said it better. Certainly not the end of the world though

He's played for Seattle before, right? Pretty cool for him to go back, I guess he liked it there.

Former Reds utility player Ryan Freel found dead after an apparent suicide. He was 36. RIP.

Always sucks to hear about these players killing themselves. I never understand it either.

Agree, but what does suck about it is as early as this past week, Cashman was saying the plan was to have Ibanez as a/the DH option and also a bat off the bench so we're back to square 1 in finding that

Self inflicted gun shot wound, I always used to have him on my bench in MVP Baseball

BREAKING: Nick Swisher has agreed to a four-year, $56 million deal with the Indians. Vesting $14M option for a 5th year could make it $70M.

I'm happy for Swisher. He was decent in his time here, but it was time to part.

As a Mariners fan, I have hated Ibanez every time he was in Seattle. Him actually being useful in Philly and New York only made me hate him more. **** that guy.

He wasn't worth that much. Replacing him won't be easy though. Hamilton was the best option but he is off the market now.

From all accounts, Andruw Jones has always been an asshat. Good riddance!

Matsui as expected retired and Jeter had some nice words about him

Quote:
"I've said it numerous times over the years, but it's worth repeating now. I've had a lot of teammates over the years with the Yankees, but I will always consider Hideki one of my favorites," Jeter said in a release. "The way he went about his business day in and day out was impressive. Despite being shadowed by a large group of reporters, having the pressures of performing for his fans both in New York and Japan and becoming acclimated to the bright lights of New York City, he always remained focused and committed to his job and to those of us he shared the clubhouse with. I have a lot of respect for Hideki. He was someone we counted on a great deal and he's a big reason why we became World Champions in 2009."

Matsui was definitely all class, and all heart. I'm glad he was a Yankee, and I wish him well in retirement.

With 3 of the Yankee core 4 left, and all 3 likely set to retire in the next 2-3 years, makes you wonder when a core of guys like that will come around again to play their entire career for one team (Pettitte the exception) and have as much success as all 4 did both individually and with the team

Not too often you get something like that

looks like this one has backfired on Boras, to this date Soriano still has no teams interested

Bob Klapisch ‏@BobKlap
Told Scott Boras asked #Yankees last month if they'd consider taking Rafael Soriano back on a 1-yr deal. Request flatly denied.
