With Tanaka now a Yankee....

I think it's time we can give him a slot on the community list. To me, he's #1: any player that can command 155M, costing his team a total of 175M without having been tested at any level of...

Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez cleared to sign

A bit old for a traditional prospect, but very interesting none the less. I remember seeing him a little in the WBC and he looked legit to me. The number I keep seeing attached to his name is 60...

Theo Epstein joining Cubs

  As a Cub fan, I couldn't be happier.  I've defended Jim Hendry in years past, but the last few years have really been poor and his firing would have surely happened sooner if not for the Cubs...

Edwin Jackson - scouting over stats

     This winter, the Tigers were lambasted on this site for trading away Matt Joyce for Edwin Jackson.  It was a pretty even split here between those who liked/disliked the deal.  Jackson was...

WTF... 2009 Season takes another hit

Jim Bowden is stepping down before he gets fired and possibly charged in a kick-back scheme that may be coming to light from the whole Esmailyn Gonzalez debacle.  How this guy kept getting a job in...

Tazawa Signs with Red Sox

Not sure how this slipped by so quietly yesterday.  No surprise as Boston seemed to never be in question, but it is now official.  What I am surprised at is how little it took to sign him : 3 years...

Jon Still

Why has this guy been flying completely under the radar?  A little old for his league (23 in high-A), but he is a catcher so it's not as big of a deal.  20 HR's, with an OPS that has been around...
