It's hard to get excited for this upcoming season as a Tribe fan. I'm more excited to watch our prospects develop this year. sigh.

If anyone, he'll blame Don Cooper like Samardzija did.

O's give up the 14th pick in a loaded draft for Gallardo, and will probably give up their 2nd round pick for Fowler. Ouch.

If the orioles had at least a decent system you can understand throwing away a top 15 pick, but it's so bad.

That's what I'd bet on. They'll probably throw out 70mil between Fowler and Gallardo. That definitely stinks of an owner realizing they're available and telling the GM to spend his money.

Even with these moves, they are fighting for 4th place. The bullpen will keep them in a lot of games, but the rotation is really bad outside of Gausman who is probably a 3 anyway. Maybe Tillman will bounce back...

A's games are always cheap no matter what unless they happen to be playing the Giants, Red Sox, or Yankees. I've sat front row for $55 and behind homeplate is barely $100 most games.

The Phillies could be one of those teams with a bad record that you don't want to play, especially if they start calling prospects up.

Jimmy Rollins turned down decent money utility role jobs to sign with the White Sox on a minor league deal and a camp invite. If they can get ANYTHING out of him then that's a great deal.

I wonder if they'd trade him if they're in 3rd/4th around the deadline. He said that his agent gave the Jays an AAV and a contract length. Said there's no room to negotiate, that's what he wants.
