    Interesting trade between the Royals and Giants. I didn't realize Cabrera had as good a year as he did. Sanchez has always struck me as a guy that will never quite put all the pieces together, and I don't think he'll get any better than what he is right now.

    I don't think the Mets are going to re-sign Jose Reyes this off season. The Mets have said they won't go beyond a 4 year deal, and he'll almost certainly get at least one contract offering 5 years. From what I've read, it looks like the most likely teams that Reyes could go to are the Brewers, Marlins, and Tigers.

    Also from the rumors Washington will make a play for Reyes

    Good move on the behalf of the Giants. Cabrera was under-the-radar for the Royals in 2010, and could probably give them the spark that Beltran failed to do during the last half of the season.

    According to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com, the Phillies have signed Jonathan Papelbon to a deal to become the new closer of the Philadelphia Phillies. The deal is done, pending a physical. Salisbury says it’s likely he’ll get a four-year deal.This ends the Ryan Madson era in Philadelphia, the place he has been since 2004.
    More coming…

    Sounds like the Marlins have made "substantial offers" to both Jose Reyes and Albert Pujols, according to Ken Rosenthal. I still don't see Pujols leaving St. Louis, but Reyes to Miami certainly seems possible. I'd honestly put Reyes' chances of returning to the Mets at 25% at best now. I really don't see him staying in New York.

    The St. Louis Cardinals are replacing a manager who's third on the career victory list with a man who'll be writing his first lineup card on Opening Day.Mike Matheny, a former catcher with the Cardinals who had been a minor league instructor, will be introduced as Tony La Russa's successor at a news conference Monday.
    Don't you want someone with a little managerial experience?

    They have to get experience managing somehow. Playing catcher for LaRussa for years probably helped him more than being a minor league manager anyway.

    Couldn't agree more and no real other options with Hellickson and Kimbrel winning their respected ROTYs.

    Kemp huge pay day, paid too much for a guy who hasn't prove he deserves money like that.The Dodgers will regret giving him that amount of money, since they need some Pitching after Kershaw, and bullpen help as well.

    Kemp had an MVP caliber season last year (.324 avg/39 HR/126 RBI/40 SB). He finished 3rd in the NL batting race, led the NL in HR/RBI, and just missed a 40/40 season. So I'd say he deserves money like that (8 years may be a bit much, but he had such a great year, the Dodgers couldn't really offer much less).

    Yeah, the Dodgers couldn't afford to offer less, because some other team would probably have offered him that amount of money if that's what his agent was looking for.

    One year doesn't equal that money.Sad to see if the team goes nowhere again, the possible new Owner might be shaking his head, as people show to the games, but quite as hell.The Dogders are in the same division as Arizona and the Giants right? Both teams have bettter in and out the Dodgers, work on improving the team.

    Did you even bother to read my post? If they hadn't offered it, someone else would, so regardless of what you personally think he's worth, that's what he was going to get paid.
