Wanted him back, but 10 mil for a reliever is alot. However I'm assuming this is what it took to keep him from taking a closer job elsewhere, and they can afford it, so cool.
Interesting to me seeing that Dan Haren comes with the same deal as Brian Wilson.

I'd make an argument to reverse Puig & Ryu based on season long consistency, but there's no arguing Fernandez deserved it

@InsideThePark (empty stadium) I didn't read it that way.
"Other than that, the Dodgers are pretty much set."
All they really brought up was the 3B situation/5th starter, even though it listed "needs" at C,2B,3B,SP....it went on to say AJ is serviceable at C and that they addressed 2B with Guerrero

@Mike Petriello I don't like the line "Dodgers ascended to the top....while the Giants took their place in the cellar" implying the Dodgers were a last place team in 2012. But I'm probably reading it wrong, since "their" could also be just referring to the Giants taking their rightful place at the bottom.
The dip in OBP was the most disappointing for me, considering how much I bragged to friends about a catcher who gets on at a .373 clip ....but I still love AJ.
Wow...though totally satisfied with what Uribe did this year, I wasn't thrilled at the idea of bringing him back....until I read this post and realized the absolute black hole of the 3B market...so now I'm on board, as long as its only 1-2 years. You know the defense will at least be solid even if he regresses on offense, and the rest of the lineup can account for that.

A pitcher can't remove himself from a game if his manager doesn't take the ball from him/have any reliever ready to come in. Ask Mark Prior and Kerry Wood. Pretty smart guys I'm sure. Also gamers.
But before this becomes an actual discussion I was just making a joke.

There should have never been a press conference without first making a Mattingly decision. I honestly don't blame him

@Pawl_myself_to_sleep @Nineteen84 @capnsparrow @Tycho Blue Wow. They can say whatever they want but people are definitely rattled by LA's newfound spending power

@MScottEiland You mean Falsone didn't take a club to Kemp's shoulder?
@capnsparrow @Nineteen84 @Tycho Blue I don't pretend to be a scout video isn't going to do me much good, I was thinking, you know, actual analysis
@DBrim @Nineteen84 @Pawl_myself_to_sleep To put it in other terms. There are so many new metrics and people searching for better analysis out there that its up to us to read everything with a critical eye and determine which best suits our need for a particular evaluation. And this is a GOOD THING
@Tycho Blue Anyone got a link to some Tanaka analysis?
@FJ is adequately insulated @Nineteen84 @Pawl_myself_to_sleep @DBrim no arguments there
@FJ is adequately insulated @Nineteen84 @Pawl_myself_to_sleep @DBrim Sounds like my brother the White Sox fan. Chicago loves GRIT
@DBrim @Nineteen84 @Pawl_myself_to_sleep Except in the case of things like RBI or pitcher wins, of course
@DBrim @Nineteen84 @Pawl_myself_to_sleep All I meant by that was anyone who develops metrics is going to view their numbers as the "right way" to look at baseball. I think its great to gather all the information we can, but I don't think anyone can say with actual certainty that its better than someone else's way. That's really all I was trying to say.
Man we really need some actual baseball to discuss
@DBrim @Nineteen84 @Pawl_myself_to_sleep Like I said I'm all for advanced metrics.
