Cashman with some bad Pineda news:

Quote:
• On Michael Pineda's return from major shoulder surgery: "We have to keep him off our radar for now. ... We're talking June of next year ... the second half of next year."

Japanese pitching prospect Shohei Otani announced that he will pursue a career in MLB rather than turn professional in Japan, according to the Associated Press. The Red Sox, Rangers, and Dodgers have all sent representatives to Japan to meet with Otani recently and the Orioles are also said to have interest in the right-hander.

"I think I will start in the minor leagues but I want to challenge in the majors. It's been my dream since entering high school," said the 18-year-old.

Otani, who stands at 6'4" and weighs 190 pounds, has a strong fastball that has been clocked in the 99-100 mph range. If Otani signs with a major league club, he'll be the first potential top NPB draft pick to make the direct jump from high school in Japan to the U.S.
Also, as per Rosenthal:

Quote:
I’ll believe Justin Upton will be a Diamondback in 2013 when I see him in an Arizona uniform on Opening Day.
http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/20...in-upton-next/

I could Tampa getting on that train. Something around Shields/Price for Upton if they are adamant in getting a SP. I still don't understand why you'd think about trading Upton, but whatever.

Also, wow on the Pineda news. Sucks for the kid.

Petco Park follows Safeco Field this winter as the Padres will shorten the fences.

http://www.greenfieldreporter.com/vi...res-Petco-Park

It even gets better since they will finally move the visiting bullpen from the right field foul territory to where it belongs - behind the outfield wall. AT&T Park should take notes.

Texas and LAA may have better odds, just like they did last season, But the A's will be the only team from the AL West hanging up a banner this upcoming season.

Good one. Haha.

Not every fan has to see their teams win the championship every year to enjoy their accomplishments. My point was that the Angels and Rangers were ranked to finish much better than the A's this past season, too, and look who won the division.

Enjoy your rebuild.

A's picked up Balfour's 2013 option worth 4.5 and decline the option for Stephen Drew.

They will attempt to re-sign Drew, his option was at 10 mil and that was way too much.

#chisox announce $29M, 2-yr deal with jake peavy

(BWC won't like this). There's also a 2015 team option.

ChiSox declined the Youk and Myers 2013 team options.

Jon Morosi ‏@jonmorosi
As expected, #Mets today formally picked up contract options on David Wright and R.A. Dickey, sources told @Ken_Rosenthal and me. @MLBONFOX

I don't know why that's so outrageous; in an injury plagued season, they still ended up with the best record in the AL last year. You shouldn't let a brutal ALCS make you forget the 167 games that came before it.
