Games We Play
Big, brass ones on botha those GM 's, though it does seem like big name trades are coming back into vogue lately.
My gut says Texas wins this swap as far as on the field goes.
Didn't see this one coming, huh?
Hot Damn! Prince may sweat off 15 lbs in the Texas heat while he's hitting 40 homers.
yeah. i couldn't believe this when i got home from work before!
some think the rangers might be a big player for robbie now...
hey. the banter clock is fixed.
The ____gers trade _____er to the ____gers for _____er.
You don't see that every day, for sure.
 Well I for one never understood why Eazy E was so fascinated with Texas and Detroit when he was obviously so proud of Compton, CA ; rest his soul. Wait, maybe he was a National League fan... >;)
Detroit unloads salaray big time, uses it to pay Scherzer. Rangers can still afford the Belter.
Read Ty's column in the Times re: Cano -- and the upside of letting hime go.
 I'm thinking the Yanks have far more overhead than they will admit and are bleeding more money than they want to. Acknowledging a rebuild mode is akin to saying, "come back in four or five years when there 'a something to cheer about" which is probably not something the Steinbrenner family can really afford in NY; especially if they plan to sell the team in the near future (anything is possible). I don't approve of this possible motive for compromising their future by signing Robbie to a baseball-ignorant contract (which they have plenty of), but I possibly understand the business aspect. It's their own damn fault; the future is here and it wants its money.
