OTM Gedman League - Final Results

Amid the misery, something nicer.   The OTM Gedman League has concluded for 2011.  Our final results are:    

Beltran to Giants


At this time, expected to be the Giants top pitching prospect for Beltran and cash.

Brewers acquire K-Rod


In the first big trade of 2011's season, the Brewers have acquired Mets closers Francisco Rodriguez to be a setup man.


Another RF idea - Colby Rasmus

  Colby Rasmus's struggles with the Cardinals as an organization have been well documented.  He has requested trades twice in the past two years, apparently fed up with Tony La Russa's...

Is even Andrew Friedman tired of the Rays?


Friedman supposedly has interest in becoming the next GM of the Astros. I say, go for it!


A Case against Instant Replay

  After Tuesday’s ending, there have been some calls for instant replay expansion, such as from our own esteemed Matthew Kory.  It would be a mistake to act on these ideas.   There are, in my...


Fill-in Game Thread 6/11

Game Thread for 6/11

McDonald was an outfielder?


Maybe you guys know this already, but seriously: wtf? He had an injury so they stuck him in the OF for two years?!

An interview with Adrian about hitting


A short, very informative and awesome interview with Adrian Gonzalez about hitting from fangraphs. Check it out!



An interesting post from AZ Snake Pit last night commented on how the author was pleased about Buster Posey's injury keeping him out for the season and improving the D-Backs' chances for 2011. ...

Vogelsong called up to Giants


Old friend Ryan Vogelsong has been called up to replace an injured Barry Zito in the Giants' rotation. Vogelsong had posted a 17/5 K:BB ratio at Triple A.

Big Bad Bartolo in the Rotation


New about our hated rivals: Phil Hughes, considered one of the potential strengths of the Yankees rotation, has been placed on the DL with "dead arm." Big Bad Bartolo Colon has been tapped to take Hughes's rotation spot. The current MFY rotation: CC, Burnett, Nova, Garcia, Colon.


Red Sox and International Spending

According to Baseball America, the Red Sox rank merely 19th out of all 30 MLB teams in international amateur signing expenditures.  This does not include Cuban defectors, so Ibarra and Iglesias are...

J.D. Drew Prepared to Knife Alligator to Death


Honestly, words can't do this justice. Maybe one word. Bad-ass.

Keith Law's Organizational Rankings 2011


It's Insider only, but the Red Sox clock in at number 11. Not bad for shipping out two top five prospects.

Pirates Re-Sign Brian Burres


To a minor-league contract. UPDATE by Charlie: Burres is perfectly fine AAA depth, but let's hope he doesn't pitch so many innings in the majors this year. The Pirates have a lot more depth in the rotation, so hopefully he won't be making any starts at all. The bullpen might be another story.

Red Sox, Yankees pay Luxury Tax


The Red Sox pay close to 1.5 million in Luxury Tax. Should they go over again in 2011, they will be taxed at 30% of money spent over the limit. The Yankees paid 18 million.

Bob Feller passes away at 92


Indians great Bob Feller has died at 92. One of baseball's greats.

King Felix wins Cy Young


Price second, Sabathia third, Lester fourth.


OTM Yahoo Fantasy League Season Talk - Part 2

Since the other post fell off the front page, I thought that I'd go ahead and make another one like a couple people discussed.  We're in the middle of week 4 now, and perhaps a clearer picture is...

Ellsbury and Cameron Hurting


per NESN, Cameron is being checked for apendicitis and Ellsbury is still hurting and may be placed on the D.L. I gather we'll be seeing Reddick soon?

Lugo back in the A.L. East!


Can't wait to see that homecoming...
