    Awesome
    Lmao @ fat panda. That dude mailed it in once he signed that deal.

    Saw something that Turner was close to signing with the Red Sox back in 2014 but the dodgers ended up offering him a deal at the very last minute.

    Remember that argument very differently. Anyways the 3 signings of Canley (to play LF), Castillo and Candoval were all awfully timed. Their outfield situation in 14' fucken stunk out loud JBJ had a .531 OPS, Jonny Gomez, Daniel Nava, Mike Carp, Sizemore, Holt, Brentz and Victorino (only played 30 games), it was bad. So then they trade Lester for CesPEDes (who they eventually flip for Porcello), sign Castillo and then sign Canley to play LF. Its tough to blame them for giving up on JBJ after how incompetent he was, but after seeing how good Mookie looked in August/September 2014 there was no reason for the Canley signing.

    They went from having the worst OF in baseball, spending a ton of money on "outfielders", none of them worked out and they still have the best OF in baseball 2 years later. Then the Candoval signing, he shows up 300 LBS in 2015 and then not only Travis Shaw emerges, Moncada becomes the best prospect in baseball, Devers is a top 5-10 prospect in baseball and now Michael Chavis comes from the clouds bashing HR's left & right. Potential 3rd basemen out the ying yang.

    Offense was abysmal in 14' so I get the need to make moves, but the money they could have had to spend if they had just waited.

    Luckily all of them will be gone including Canley when its time to pay Mookie, JBJ and Bogaerts. Still don't expect them to keep all 3, but they need to get on a Mookie Extension ASAP.

    These next 10 games will determine what the Rangers do at the trade deadline.

    funny story about Panda.
    I live in the Bay Area and I was driving near my home once a few years ago and stopped at a light.
    IFO me was a white Audi S4, a sporty car, with the license plate Pandas S4 (personalized).

    I saw a fat dark skinned dude looking at me in his side mirror, since I was in my M3 and knew it was him. Idiot starts revving his engine, smh.

    Long story short, light turns green. We both turn onto Ygnacio Blvd in Walnut Creek and I pass him
    at normal speed, since he's dogging it. Next thing I know, dickwad is flying up the road at about 80 mph.

    clownass, dangerous driver.
    and a big fat fuck.
    no doubt puts ketchup on his steak

    Becances hasn't been great lately either, hes had control issues. Looked ok tonight against the bottom of the Sox order, outside of drilling Moreland.

    Sox have had some B level prospects take solid leaps this year and have reloaded a bit. Don't really have a problem giving up a slightly better package then what they got Aaron Hill for last year, despite how bad Hill ended up being.

    Agreed, but Betances has nasty stuff. Throws hard. Been very reliable year in year out.


    Damn, Sox trying to get Frazier. Would be a very nice bat to add to the lineup. Solid defense, and has wheels for a 3b.

    Beltre is 20 hits away from 3,000 and just passed Carl Yastrzemski on the all time homerun list.

    Also - Johnny Cueto to the DL with a blister problem. Pretty bullshit that the MLB went and changed the baseball without telling anyone. Will be a giant asterisks next to whoever wins it this year.
