  1. Apparently Headley is the Bucs' top trade target, and the Pirates and Padres GMs have been in talks over the last two days. The Bucs are also interested in LaHair, probably as a backup plan.

    I think giving the Padres Pedro Alvarez for Headley makes a lot of sense for both teams: Pedro has been remarkably inconsistent in his MLB career, but he still has huge potential. It's very difficult to gauge Pedro's trade value right now; I'm sure the opinions of GMs vary greatly on him. If the Padres don't want Pedro, the Bucs have plenty of pitching in the Minors to acquire Headley, and it wouldn't take Cole or Taillon, I'm sure. The Bucs are trying to win starting this season and they hope to remain competitive for years. Headley and his .381 OBP would be a great fit in Pittsburgh.

  5. More good news from cains perfect game, Aubrey huff injured his knee trying to jump the dugout railing after the last out, will probably head to the dl. This eliminates a huge hole on the roster.

    this was one team i was way off about so far in my preseason predictions. I thought they'd be in contention in that division.

    I think the earliest we could possibly see Cole is next summer. If the Bucs call Cole up in June as opposed to April, they will have him for another year of control. So even IF he dominates AA for the rest of this season, he won't get a real shot at making the MLB club - just like Starling Marte, our AAA prospect (AA last year) who dominated Spring Training, but was still sent to Indianapolis.

    I will be watching Cole's progress closely, though. Our future depends a lot on him. Thanks for the heads up on his promotion.

    i knew this team would suck. no way aramis was gonna protect braun and aside from weeks who is starting off horrible batting like .170, the rest of the bats are garbage. theyre like a worse phillies team in every aspect. worse offense and worse pitching. no way they were gonna make a run. its def the year for the reds imo, hope my cards keep it close tho and make a run late again.

  20. Good news: Jason Bay injures himself diving for a fly ball and is coming out of the game
    Bad news: Jay Bruce inside the park HR

    I still say that transaction favors the Mets.

    It's sad that 2/25 with 1 HR since coming off the DL qualifies as "showing a tiny bit of life" by Jason Bay standards.

    First round pick of the Twins in '04. Looked like he was gonna be a bust until he started showing power in the minors a few years ago. Then he looked like a bust until about 3 weeks ago. And now he's got as many home runs as Giancarlo Stanton.
