We should just post date all these articles to December.

The problem is not any GM pulling the trigger at this point.
Commented on David Price trade rumors: Mariners, Indians Cardinals interested with Cubs a possibility on Jul 21 2014, 4:55p
Overall, the Mariners have the worst OBP coming out of both the lead-off and second slot in the order in the AL

Giants just got their "on hold for Zobrist" card by signing Uggla to a MiL deal.

Thank heaven it was the Twins

O's going "all in".

Which they probably should do if their arm prospects history is so bad.

Rays cannot afford to lose this game to the Twins

Machado is back to being healthy and Davis hasn't hit yet.

Hah, that was the only way the Twins were going to score this inning.

Rays have not played well against the O's and Jays this season.

But they will get Encanarcion, Lind and Lowrie back before too long.
Commented on GDT: Community is a great show that brings out the worst in people and should be cancelled on Jul 20 2014, 4:10p
Which becomes problamtic since I see the Blue Jays and Orioles adding pitching before the deadline

Rays need to beat every team at this point and they have not done that this year.
Commented on GDT: Community is a great show that brings out the worst in people and should be cancelled on Jul 20 2014, 3:57p - 1 reply
Rays only have 17 games against teams with losing records and seven of those are against the Red Sox.
Commented on GDT: Community is a great show that brings out the worst in people and should be cancelled on Jul 20 2014, 3:52p - 1 reply
only seven

Too bad the Rays will be done with the 'Stros and Twins this year.

Expect Escobar to be plunked later for that balk.

Outs must be less significant to Maddon these days.

Guess they don't think KK can get to second on his own.

That may be the ugliest replay headset person I've ever seen

The concern I have with KK is that he may be coming back to "his earth".

....or deal them seperately.
Commented on Potential Ben Zobrist trade not a salary dump on Jul 18 2014, 5:07p
I'm not sure the Rays would be interested in Franklin for Zobrist.
Commented on Potential Ben Zobrist trade not a salary dump on Jul 18 2014, 2:09p - 1 reply
Zobrist will be much easier to move by himself(and bring back surprising value) than packaged with Price.
Commented on Potential Ben Zobrist trade not a salary dump on Jul 18 2014, 12:58p - 2 replies
Unless the Rays fall 14 games back in the next two weeks, I don't see a complete "sell off".

Brewers are in a win now...this year and next with only having to replace 1st base.

And than there is this..
Commented on Rays Tank: American League wins Priceless all-star game on Jul 16 2014, 11:53a - 2 replies
I couldn't care less but this is what baseball does and have always done...promote, glorify and put on a pedestal during it's biggest moments, those players who have seemingly done it "the right way".
Commented on Rays Tank: American League wins Priceless all-star game on Jul 16 2014, 11:44a - 1 reply
Any four of Jimmy Nelson, Devin Williams, Tyler Cravy, Nick Ramirez, Mitch Haniger, Clint Coulter or Shawn Zarraga
Commented on The Rays Tank: Hey now, you're an All Star on Jul 16 2014, 9:09a - 1 reply
While Santana is an offensive upgrade for the team, he is 28 and cost controlled (though fairly expensive for the Rays) for 2 years and an option.
Commented on The Rays Tank: Hey now, you're an All Star on Jul 15 2014, 4:05p
He hasn't "sold" since the 2006 deadline
Commented on The Rays Tank: Hey now, you're an All Star on Jul 15 2014, 3:45p
Why are we all kidding ourselves?

Maybe Price gets traded to the NL by Sunday

Jimmy Nelson has moved up to #38

Speaking of hugs, does anyone think they are getting a little to cozy (with some added cheek to cheek time as well)?
Commented on GDT: HAPPY JULY 6TH!!! on Jul 6 2014, 9:16p
Bringing everyone back (including Price) will be way too expensive.
Commented on Q&A with ESPN's Buster Olney on Jul 6 2014, 9:14p
This isn't about not spending for Price but the 26+ million it will cost in salary for him should substantially reduce the value going back to the Rays.
Commented on TB 6 - DET 3: Rays play like their old selves; Maddon ejected on Jul 5 2014, 2:05p - 1 reply
I think it's less of a point considering they both have pitched very well for the past year and looking forward to just one more year on their contracts.
Commented on TB 6 - DET 3: Rays play like their old selves; Maddon ejected on Jul 5 2014, 9:13a - 1 reply
Samardzga will only cost about 12 million (remaining and arby for next year)
Commented on TB 6 - DET 3: Rays play like their old selves; Maddon ejected on Jul 5 2014, 8:59a - 3 replies
I would say there is zero chance.
Commented on Hold up, the Rays are less than ten games out? on Jul 2 2014, 8:51p
Problem is the Rays are not going to add players to improve the team (more likely to lose Price).
Commented on Hold up, the Rays are less than ten games out? on Jul 2 2014, 8:02p
Exactly my point.
Commented on GDT: The Price is Right for the last time? on Jul 1 2014, 8:16p
Price will be a Ray until the Rays are mathematically eliminated
Commented on GDT: The Price is Right for the last time? on Jul 1 2014, 8:11p - 1 reply
I am not impressed considering that 82 of the 278 KO's (30%) were against the Astros
Commented on GDT: Archer is a great last name for a pitcher on Jun 30 2014, 8:41p
Dodgers could eat half his remaining salary and it woud still cost the Rays 10 million a year for 5 years.
Commented on Rays Tank: Series win; streaking monkeys on Jun 30 2014, 7:02p
They are very much like the Rays in that they have a two year window with their present roster.
Commented on Rays Tank: Series win; streaking monkeys on Jun 30 2014, 5:58p
Here's what some Brewers fans think about Zaragga
Commented on Rays Tank: Series win; streaking monkeys on Jun 30 2014, 5:07p
My bad... Zaragga and Cravy (misspells)

They do, IMO.

Would love to get some leakage on AF's hacked trade talks
Commented on Rays Tank: Series win; streaking monkeys on Jun 30 2014, 2:28p - 1 reply
They are a last place mediocre team in a mediocre division and have to make up 10 games.
Commented on Rays Tank: Series win; streaking monkeys on Jun 30 2014, 1:47p - 1 reply
with that and they still have the worst record in baseball
Commented on Rays Tank: Series win; streaking monkeys on Jun 30 2014, 11:53a - 1 reply
I think a team without a left handed starter needs Price more to go far in the play-offs.
Commented on Rays Tank: Series win; streaking monkeys on Jun 30 2014, 9:21a - 1 reply
He has improved but once teams start laying off the high heat, he's going to have to rely on, and command, his other pitches much more
Commented on Rays vs. Orioles, game two recap: Jake Odorizzi battled, but the Orioles blasted the 'pen on Jun 28 2014, 12:39p - 1 reply
Out of teams perhaps in the discussion, the Dodgers and Cards seem to have the least need for Price
Commented on The Rays Tank: DP is on, DP is most likely gone on Jun 26 2014, 5:57p
I also don't see Zobrist included with Price in the same package.
Commented on The Rays Tank: DP is on, DP is most likely gone on Jun 26 2014, 5:40p - 1 reply
I just don't see those teams in need of an ace as much as the Brewers, but that's just me.
Commented on The Rays Tank: DP is on, DP is most likely gone on Jun 26 2014, 5:36p
Nelson was #66 going into the season and has been very impressive so far (in a hitters league)
Commented on The Rays Tank: DP is on, DP is most likely gone on Jun 26 2014, 5:26p - 1 reply
The package coming back is not going to be as "big" a package (in terms of multiple top prospects) as one is hoping for, IMO.
Commented on The Rays Tank: DP is on, DP is most likely gone on Jun 26 2014, 5:13p - 2 replies
I think they have a lot of under the radar prospects who are closer to being MLB ready than some would think.
Commented on The Rays Tank: DP is on, DP is most likely gone on Jun 26 2014, 5:04p - 1 reply
Still like the Brewers who are unexpectedly leading their division and with their offense and in that park, could use an lefty ace to hold off the Cards, Reds and Pirates.
Commented on The Rays Tank: DP is on, DP is most likely gone on Jun 26 2014, 4:57p - 1 reply
Wouldn't surprise me if AF again holds on for a "supreme" package and doesn't find one.
Commented on The Rays Tank: DP is on, DP is most likely gone on Jun 26 2014, 2:03p - 3 replies
He'll may be brought right back with Marte looking like he's concussed.
Commented on GDT: A Jolly Roger sounds like a kind of candy on Jun 24 2014, 8:45p - 1 reply
Nelson would have to be a given and the Rays would have to really like some young upside talent they have like an arm like Devin Williams and some OF bats like Haniger/Delmonico and maybe a catching prospect like Coulter
Commented on The Rays Tank: 31-47 on Jun 24 2014, 2:23p - 1 reply
I think the Brewers have the most need for Price (they have no lefties in their rotation and the Cards and Reds both struggle with lefties)
Commented on The Rays Tank: 31-47 on Jun 24 2014, 1:31p - 2 replies
On the Price watch, I think he ends up in the NL Central with whom ever can offer the best package that the Rays like.
Commented on The Rays Tank: 31-47 on Jun 24 2014, 10:36a - 2 replies
6-10 (so far) during the much anticipated 18 out of 21 last two home stands hasn't worked out so well.
