The Mets signed Jon Rauch, Frank Francisco, and traded Angel Pagan to the Giants for Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez.

Decent minor moves.

It seems Ned Colleti is trying build his own private AAA team...Mark Ellis, Chris Capuano, Jerry Hariston Jr., Juan Rivera, Aaron Harang, Adam Kennedy, and just now Josh Bard.

I know the Dodgers are in a funk with getting new owners and all but they might as well just promote some of their younger guys to get some playing time. Its gonna be like +30 million for all these guys.

I like this because the Giants need all the offense they can get.

Glancing at the numbers his OPS at home is 0.684 vs 0.878 away. So its the product of Petco.

The move with the Giants is fine. The two Blue Jays relievers however basically brought the gas can and matches to most late inning pressure situations they were in this year. Have fun with that.

WOW. The Marlins are buying players left & right, putting the NY Bankees to shame.

Loria is just spending some of the money he's been stealing the last 8 years.

Hey MLB wanted him to spend it so he is.


I ****ing hate Loria. If anything this spending spree shows he sabotaged the team all these years with his shady business practices.

Petco tends to do that, especially with fly ball pitchers, it can more or less save your career like it did with Heath Bell.

Exactly, that's why regression is expected with him in LA. How much remains to be seen.

I like the Buerhle signing, he's so tremendously consistent with his results year in and year out.

Buerhle is your innings eater and groundball pitcher. How effective he is depends on how well the defense is behind him.

He's on your team less than a day and you're already calling him Marky B? Ugh...

I think the fans here in STL really just want Albert to make his damn mind up. It's getting frustrating because A LOT of moves depend on if he stays or goes an the longer he drags this out the longer it hurts the team because we ant jut go out and start signing people and then he decides to take the offer. Very frustrating.
