Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

It's always fun when an owner catches a late bargain or two and winds up with a truckload of cash left, but no premiere players available. :-D

If it's not a salary-based keeper, might as well spend it... !+)

Yeah, I've seen similar things, but still.....$45 for Uribe? Just too funny. Lol. :-b

The best part about that bid was that it was the starting bid for Uribe.

We laughed the hardest about Scutaro, though. He really would have spent some time in AAA if Crosby wasn't so banged up all season.

Well, Arlo doesn't track this sort of thing. But at this time of year with the season approaching, articles are read by many, many people... :-)
