The 2011 Offseason!!

Recommended Posts


Wow. Given the deal Yadier Molina is signing, we're very fortunate to have Avila. The Cards will be paying Molina $15M per. That makes Prince look like a huge bargain.

Not a good couple of days for ex-tigers... this was a pretty important year for Scott... hate to see this happening.

Adding up all of the contracts for 2012, plus the minimum salary guys, plus the deferred payments puts the Tigers right around $135M

Dang.

Not bad IMO for how stacked we seem to be.

2 of the top 10 hitters in the game including THE best.

The best pitcher in the game.

Some nice up and coming players (Avila, Boesch) contributing hopefully just about every day (Olney called Boesch a potential 'break out' player this year on the ESPN MLB Fantasy Draft special last night and Avila was listed as the 6th best catcher)

A nice back end of the rotation.

Who the **** are the 5 better catches than Avila?

That's a good question. McCann, Molina. I suppose people would list Posey but I'm not sold yet. I'm out after that.

According to fangraphs (which takes into account the backup):

1. Atlanta (Brian McCann)

2. Twins (Joe Mauer)

3. Indians (Carlos Santana)

4. Cardinals (Yadier Molina)

5. Diamondbacks (Miguel Montero)

6. Rangers (Mike Napoli)

7. Giants (Buster Posey)

8. Orioles (Matt Wieters)

9. Tigers (Alex Avila)

Yeah he was 6th based off projections for FBL this year. They also had both Fielder and Cabby as first baseman. Cabby was first and Prince was 4th I think.

I'm surprised that Napoli still qualifies as a catcher since he plays there maybe once a week now.

JL, would you please give Ryan Raburn some more AT BATS so he will appear in the BA stats on the MLB STATS page? He is among the leaders in RBI and HRs but because he doesn't have enough at bats is not listed in this stat and he is batting .462!

I know, right? Typical Leyland. He should really know that there are individual spring leaderboards to think about.
