Bet that’s where Bourn ends up. Nats don’t have a bat to trade unless it’s Morse, and I’d rather have Granderson. Won’t give up Strasburg, Harper or either Zimmerman either. Probably need to be a 3 team thing for Nats to be involved.

I think Bourn goes there as well….by Id love to get Rendon and he’s blocked …especially if they re-sign Laroche
The longer Martin allows that Pirate offer to simmer, the More obvious it becomes that he Really wants to reamain with the Yanks. If the Yanks would offer him 1yr\8 Mill, I believe he would take it, and I also believe Cashman realizes this, and is letting him twist-in-the-wind. No way, Martin wants to be “sentenced” to 3 yrs with a loser like the Pirates. To top it off, the current Pirate offer is Very close to what the Yanks offered him last season.
It warms my heart to think of a potential reunion of AJ and Martin…. those soft and yet firm hands framing every hellacious offerings dealt by a grizzled AJ. Two veterans with bountiful playoff experience leading the charge for a young and exciting core group of junior bucs into territory unknown. The prospect of that is almost too good to even think too far… It’s a wonder story if it comes true.
Have you found a Dodger blog to join when they sign Cano & Wright? :
Lol, Maine, I could never cross over.. but I admire greatness. I might even admire the desire to be great more than I admire achieved greatness. Because once you achieve it, having the fire in your belly to continue to try and reach unprecedented greatness is truly incredible.
The Dodgers are being great. The Yankees used to be great but are now in some sort of gray area.
The Dodgers = Mariah Carey making the Christmas tree lighting a lesson in why Mariah Carey is great (screw Christmas, I’m the show!).
The Yankees = JLo dating a back up dancer and slum diving for boyfriends.
Difference being, the Dodgers are Not dealing or signing difference makers, they are adding “names”. When they begin to acquire “been there, done that” players with ring(s), then and only then will it make a difference in their winning thier division. Guys like HanRam got the stats a lotta people around this Blog like, but as is usually the case, the numbers are hollow.
