  1. Red Sox buy Yankees 24th best prospect by picking up Ottavino's $9m salary; Sox might be able to then flip him at deadline.

    a different way to add talent to your system if you are creative enough and will spend a little $$$


  2. I am not defending Trump but the remedy for violating the emoluments clause is clear: Impeachment and removal by Legislative Branch; i am not sure the Judicial Branch has a way of enforcing any emoluments decision, so I get why they ruled this way.

    So much of our system is based on the good faith of government officials. When they violate that good faith, there is little that can be done short of impeachment (or a primary or general election loss) to control them, except for political, media, or social pressure - none of which Trump cared about.

    So now the precedent is set: a person can use the Office to increase their wealth, and they don’t have to pretend they’re not.

    Can there be another explanation?

    Al does know which players would improve the club?

    Chris does not trust Al to know which players would improve the club?

    Al does not want to make a decision because that decision might be wrong and he is scared of being wrong so he sees inaction as the best choice?

    Al is caught in a perpetual "5 years from now we will be good" time loop?

    Al is saving money for Alex's signing?

    No one wants to play for the Tigers?

    Not a good sign that Clemens was not invited to the summer developmental camp--drafted as a college player, two years in the system, 3rd round draft pick.  

    yeah, he had to go to some independent Texas league just to get some ABs; not good at all


  5. the pardon power is almost unlimited, but one limitation, to me, is relevant

    could Nixon have pardoned Dean and Halderman? I say no.

     

    The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.


  6. FG also high on him

    Among the more polished hitters in the class, Santana's swing is compact but dynamic throughout the hitting zone, he has natural feel for all-fields contact and his swing's gentle loft creates power without compromising much contact. He's this year's Placido Polanco comp, projecting to play second or third and hitting enough to profile there.
