  1. From rotoworld.

    Joel Sherman says he's hearing the "Rangers are working really hard" on Cliff Lee now.

    A Lee trade would be a much bigger gamble for the Rangers than the Yankees, considering that they'd face far longer odds in re-signing him this winter and they'd be far from locks to reach the World Series even with an ace at the top of their rotation. If the Mariners had the chance to get Jesus Montero from the Yankees and didn't take it, they're likely to insist on Justin Smoak and more from Texas.

  2. Cliff Lee

    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the "Mariners are backing off" the Yankees' offer for Cliff Lee and that it doesn't look like the "Yankees are in it."

    Shocking if true, since it seemed like a done deal all afternoon. The Mariners were believed to be receiving Jesus Montero, David Adams and Zach McAllister for Lee. Sherman says the Mariners were concerned about Adams' ankle and that another team has stepped up with a big offer.

  3. The Twins broadcast guy Blyleven commented a batter before this happened, that Zumaya has been pretty much exclusively fastballs the past few games and hasn't thrown hardly any off speed pitches at all, which that did seem odd that Zumaya would only do fastballs and nothing else right now. I hope it wasn't a case where he did feel something out of sorts the past few games and didn't tell the trainers about it thinking he can man up or something like that.

  4. I love the Castellanos pick...confused on why Stetson Allie is still not picked. The MLB Network guys didn't think he'd have signability issues, and I haven't heard of any injuries. Hmph....I thought for sure that is who they were taking after Castellanos.

    There are still a few really good players out there available for the 2nd round today.

    I agree I am confused why he isn't picked yet. Check out this youtube video of him. Hits 101mph and he is a HS pitcher?

  5. JV for Jon Lester. I was going to say Strasburg too, but he hasn't even pitched in MLB yet so who knows what you are going to get there yet.

    Nobody is worth trading Cabrera for, not even Pujols. Cabrera has pretty much the same skill set as Pujols and is younger and I think since he stopped drinking and whatever else was bothering him last year, he will easily put up Pujols numbers this year and for the next several years. His defense is also getting better and better at 1B for only playing at that position for a couple of years.

  6. I think he leads the league in K's so far, but somehow his timely hits, walks and plays in the outfield kind of overshadow the K's to the fact that when he does strikeout you aren't saying geez he struck out again...
