Anyone notice how there aren't that many good lefty relievers out there right now? Wagner and Guardado don't count as they will close most likely wherever they go. Ryan will probably, but not for sure, setup. Outside of them, who else is there? Marte, Rhodes, King, and Gonzalez. Gonzalez will likely close, and the rest are not that good.


Don't forget my man Neal Cotts ;-D

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

Looks like he might close too. Reports out of NY say that he told the Yankees he was not interested in playing for them as a setup man.

I still think 4 mil is too much to pay for a guy like Eyre - but hey, I am an A's fan so that's probably where this budget talk is coming from.

I just hope that they aren't expecting him to post another 2.63 ERA.

Something I didn't know about Eyre, he hasADHD.
With the new Steroid policy testing for amphetamines does anyone know what happens when a player is on Ritalin or Adderall (both amphetamines) for medical reasons?

riveira is saying he wants gordon back next year.

Yes, but it works. Crazy body chemistry.

Reportedly that is what he originally said but I think it's like Furcal saying he'd be willing to play 2B for the Mets. He doesn't really want to play 2B but he will if the Mets are going to blow every other offer away.
