    And maybe he fully appreciates it and it just puts more pressure on him.

    It is impossible for any of us to really comprehend what it takes to succeed at the major league level.

    I would like to credit myself for jinxing the Sox closer. My work here is done.

    I find layman commentary on medical decisions/diagnoses to be absolutely hilarious but not in a good way. That's all I will say.

    Toronto, embarrassed? They play in a city with Rob Ford as mayor, I think they'll be ok.

    Mauer is the better player. I loved Kirby! I was at Cooperstown for his HOF INduction and at the Metrodome for his funeral. The arguments for Mauer are objective where as the arguments for Puckett...

    Mauer is one of the best catchers in the history of the game. If he's good as a 1B for the next 5 years, he's a lock for the HoF. I find it baffling that people would be "outraged" by this...
  8. Most over-rated player in the last 30 years to retire after 2014 season

    Jeter.

    Don't get me wrong, he is talented and a sure fire hall of famer, but I can't think of a more over-rated player in my lifetime. Defensively he was below average at best, offensively he was...

    Obviously we'll see how he does going forward, but ranking Engelb Vielma #11 is kind of silly. To think that he's ahead of Kepler, Walker, Harrison and even some of those hard-throwing relievers......

    It's nothing more than looking at every possible way to improve your team, with virtually zero cost and no impact to your 40 man roster.

    Complain about the major league signings all you like, ...

    You don't have to dump anyone. If he's not good enough he goes to Rochester unless he has some kind of opt out clause in which case he's released, nothing lost.

    You can't seriously argue that the...

    Another thought, since I am the GM after all...

    Does Hicks' experiment keep me from pushing Sano and Buxton, preventing a repeat of the "Terrible Twins" of 1982? 6420

    I'd love to see "terrible"...

    I would not trade Hicks at all. Let him become the player he can be this season. A Hicks-Buxton outfield is ridiculous defensively.

    While it's definitely not out of the realm of possibility to lose 90 games again, this prediction is just absurd. A one-armed version of Joe Mauer could probably OPS around .750. Bi-lateral "omg...

    Drew's Career vs. lefties: .235/.291/.390 (.681 OPS)
    Florimon's Career: .219/.278/.323 (.601 OPS)
    Escobar's Career: .228/.280/.307 (.587 OPS)

    So, if Drew is a platoon player, then the other two...

    Except for that one time when he went out and signed $80m+ worth of pitchers.

    Also called "two months ago".
  17. Poll: There is no way that Buxton is coming up North. ...

    There is no way that Buxton is coming up North. But there are 2 obvious names missing:

    - Alex Meyer
    - Miguel Sano

    those guys could come up North if things fall their way. Even Ryan said...

    Don't compare apples with pineapples. There are a lot of us who wonder how consistent it is that Clemens and McGwire are not in because of alleged steroid use while their managers (who at least were...

    Maybe instead of voting yay or nay for getting in they should use a ranking process. Send out a ballot with all eligible players, and voters MUST rank ALL the players from 1 through however many...
