Guarantee that we'll have our 2nd unanimous inductee next year in Jeter.  

Go ahead and mark it down!! All it takes is playing for the Yankees.

Jeter is actually expected to be the only inductee next year. Curt Schilling also has a real shot. Hes been climbing and got to 60% this year. Ballot isn't the crowded next year.

Ichiro has signed a 1 year deal with Seattle. He makes $750K if he makes the roster.

I thought Ichiro retired?

He did. Seattle plays their first two games in Japan next year. So, he's unretiring for this.

I've said it before and I meant it. Edgar's the best pure hitter I've ever seen. I wish sabermetricians would go back and calculate his hard contact ratio. Dude squared up everything. He must have binoculars for eyes.

Right, this is why that even though I am firmly anti-DH, I never held being a DH against Martinez. If there were no DH, he'd be an average or slightly below average first baseman for someone and he still would have hit like a maniac.

That's just so he can play in the opening games in Japan, that's the only reason he was hired on

4-years, $50m for Pollock. Not a terrible deal for the Dodgers, but I like the idea of Markakis on one year than Pollock on 4 and lose the #60 pick.

Also, Brad Brach to the Cubs on 1-year, $3m. Said to be a couple of option years included as well.

The first of the many 1-year deals that were rumored to start flying off the board at a rapid pace.

Agreed. I'm glad the Braves did the Markakis deal instead of the Pollock deal.

FOUR years... Wow! 

He would have been better than Markakis for a few years if healthy, but good grief, four years? 

Good for Pollack, not for us.

More coming out that there is a 5th-year option at $10m, with a $5m buyout. So, at a minimum, it's 4-years, $55m.

Congratulations to A.J. Pollock. The Dodgers can afford to take such a risk, but the Braves can't. Glad they didn't.

Correction there. The 5th year is actually a player option, so it's essentially a 5-year, $60m pact.

We didn't think he was worth $3 million? I don't get that.

Could possibly not have a place open for him as a closer and we're bringing in Kimbrel.

Me neither. I don't get the passing up Cody Allen at $8.5M either.

He wasn't closer for us after we traded for him. Minter was still closer.
