to get a draft pick for a departing player he has to be on the same team the entire season and you have to offer him a 1 year qualifying offer worth the average of the top 125 salaries in the game. it's about 12 million.

Marlins Will Listen On Giancarlo Stanton


Quote:
In the wake of the Marlins' blockbuster deal with the Blue Jays, the Marlins publicly stated that they wouldn't trade Giancarlo Stanton. Assistant General Manager Dan Jennings says that the club isn't shopping the right fielder, but they will listen to all offers for him, according to Jim Bowden of SiriusXM (on Twitter).

From Jim Bowden so take it with a grain of salt.

The BBWAA is a group of archaic ignoramuses who do not have their finger on the pulse of baseball. It is wrong for players to use roids, sure, but it's alright for players to be in who didn't play against blacks and latinos (players over a 50 year span, nonetheless)? Eat a brick, you self righteous clowns.

****ing Aaron Sele got a vote today. So did Shawn Green. These people have no clue what they are doing

Pretty much. Steroids weren't a few players doing them and being worlds better than everyone else, it was a freakin entire era of baseball. Keeping guys like Bonds and Clemens, who are arguably the best EVER, is pathetic. You are right though, the BBWA are a bunch of self righteous clowns.

Eh...borderline at best. He hit .300 with a bunch of steals. Hit triples fairly frequently, but eh. Didn't break 3000 hits. Good player, and a catalyst on those Indians teams in the 90's, but not great. I wouldn't vote for him.

Same here with Sosa and McGwire, but ultimately I put Sosa in over McGwire.

I can't even fathom an argument for why this would be true.

I wouldn't put either in, but in no way can I imagine an argument for Sosa over McGwire.

If you can get through the noise from Gresh's face he reads snippets from Francona's new book and it sound amazing.

Sad to know that the rumors are true regarding these bozos.


even more sad to think that women need 'hot men' to watch the game/spend money.

its insulting.

Sosa without PED is a .270 25-30 HR pretty fast player with erratic D and a strong arm. I would not give him a second thought- or McGwire.

Bagwell is one of my favorite all time players and I am strongly in the camp he cheated but without showing up in any lists even though he admitted he didn't think it was wrong if the 25th player took them to make a roster and have a career; or his personal trainer was a noted roid guy who I think may have gotten busted at one time.

I like Crime Dog but put him in the Lofton category- close but no cigar.

Trammell and Raines are so borderline with me the wind could knock them in but I'd need to study comparables- Trammell is a SS and a great leader but unlike Larkin and Ozzie Smith who I knew were HOF Im not sure with this guy which may be an indictment.
