@shaneous absolutely agree. It's going to take real crazy money to sign Greinke. Whether he's worth it is debatable. That he'll be getting crazy money isn't. $25MM/yr at a minimum.

@WBBsAs @VietnamDodger @Robert Jimenez Hmm, ok. I suppose for the angels, they wouldn't be thinking about getting rid of them unless they were no longer effective (and not trying to dump salaries).

@Robert Jimenez I'm going out on a limb and say that no, no he won't be released. As @Mostly Gruntled Goat inferred below, if this was a move the team was seriously contemplating, he wouldn't been gone already.
Saw on mlb trade rumors that apparently haren and santana (of the angels) are both on the blocks. Probably there because the angels want to resign greinke but one of them might be a good fit for the dodgers? Or am I just dazzled by the name and neither of them have the stats to back it up anymore?
So I've developed a new theory on this move. Stan Kasten is simply giving Ned Colletti enough rope to hang himself.
Le'sigh. A boy can dream.

I can't believe I'm saying this but should Ellis' grade be higher? Maybe a B+ especially considering the criterias we're using: how he performed vs expectations.

@el serracho @Mike Petriello is ARod blocking the path for any highly touted 3B prospect in the Yankees system? I mean, I just don't understand why the Yankees would do a deal where they would have to eat a very significant part of his contract.

@el serracho @LA Woman and that drop is going to continue as he slips further and further away from his prime.
@el serracho @Mike Petriello lol. damn you people and your bringing facts into discussions. So I stand corrected on ARod but I still say that at $10MM/yr he represents far too high of a risk.
@el serracho @LA Woman like off a cliff!
@el serracho wasn't he benched in game 5? The guy has always sucked when the pressure has been on and I can't see him being anywhere close to being worth $10MM/yr in 3 years.
@Koofax Hasn't the daughter graduated high school by now? (also kinda weird to think someone his age has a daughter young enough for high school).
I understand that torre commutes to ny for his job with MLB.
This is beyond absurd. It's as if cafardo played a round of sport name roulette and randomly came up with this "story". A bunch of monkeys could have come up with this.
@Mike Petriello I'd rather see a sack of potatoes out there than juan uribe. The potatoes could at least feed some hungry Irish immigrations from the 1900s.
And to think, I once scoffed at the idea that Juan Uribe wouldn't hit as many HRs as he took him in millions.

I dunno mike, this seems like one of those good news disguised as bad news sort of things. I'm just so tired of looking at Juan Uribe.
Even moreso now that the indespensible "Emo Juan Uribe" has gone radio silent.
@Cadtalfryn @EephusBlue The deal as reported by all the fish wrap was Dodgers paying major cash + Gould for Lee. As I mentioned over at Chad Moriyama's blog, every Dodgers fan should be thanking whatever God they pray to that Carlos Lee's impatience saved us from another bone headed Ned Colletti move. He really needs to go as GM.

@phattonez7 @Mike Petriello I've always just considered him to be shit... Not to mention Colletti's love affair with Castro extends beyond just his supposed grittiness.
@Mike Petriello LOL!! Hey, I wasn't going to go there but glad somebody did.
Just a bit of house cleaning @mike_petriello but this post didn't show up until this morning at 7:14AM (west coast time) for me on google reader. And I guess looking back, this seems to be the case with your RSS feed; posts tend to show up in clumps, sometimes nowhere near their posting time.

>>- Colletti could have been legitimately asking about Francoeur, since Francoeur is exactly the type of “gritty” low-OBP player who would seem to interest Colletti.
Sadly, this is probably the most likely reason anyone who's a "gritty" player shows up in the rumour mills.
