    Re: What I think TT was getting at...the perception has to do with what the players and future free agents will think. IIRC, the Marlins players who got fire-sale'd in 2012(?) to the Blue Jays were...

    For the record, though, nobody on a team should ever be untouchable. Sure, a team might have to give you the moon for a guy to get him, but you should never say "under no circumstances."

    In pro sports, especially MLB, contracts are absolutely given for past performance. Why else does Pujols get $200mil for playing in his 30s?

    The situations are not at all comparable, other than the $$$. Pujols wanted a contract for years 31/32-40 and wanted to get paid like the dominant player he had been. Best case scenario, the...

    I've never really bought into the "AJ is a guy you hate when he's on another team but love when he's on your team" narrative. Either a guy is a jerk or he isn't. (And FWIW, I don't think it's the job...

    Dozier has hit a decent number of HRs and plays for the host team...and a lot of other players already turned Bautista down. I don't get where the disbelief over his being invited comes from. And can...

    Wasn't the entire outrageous expectation of Parms as a good MLB hitter based on a single month when he had the benefit of playing against a bunch of other late-season roster expansion call ups? As...

    When did age become the be-all, end-all regarding baseball players? Did something need to fill the RBI void? And why are we lumping guys who are 35 in with guys who are 30, 31, and 32?

    Given the direct correlation between this being undecided and the Twins' comeback, I move to postpone the vote until the scoring stops.

    No offense to your guy Colabello, but he has no business playing on the Twins. The Twins caught lightning in a bottle with him once and then sent him back down (only a week or so too late, IMO). He...
