The hot stove starts today and with lots of news. Here it is!
The Brewers hired Ken Macha as there manager today, a team with 90 wins already has a great team now has a manager who can work with any kind team. Also did you notice how bad the A’s have been since he left too.
Option Declined: Toby Hall, Edgar Renteria, Ken Griffey Jr. and Chad Cordaro all should find homes quick too, this year’s market may fit them well
Trade: Marlins get RP Leo Nunez Royals get 1B Mike Jacobs. Both are getting a good piece. The Royals now have a good power guy to hit in the 4 or 5 slot and the Marlins have a great long-term young arm but now need a decent First Baseman. Edge: Royals
Please give me your picks I will respond! Here we go!
-Can win the must win- -They won 2 games and that’s all there going to win-
MLB Poll of the Day
I think it’s a toss up between the Tigers and Rays. The Rays did win the division title and also won two more games, but the Tigers had a lot more suffering. Each team did make it to the World Series and the only team to win so far is the Mets who did have one of the best Met teams ever 1969. But I will probably go with the Tigers because they had a all around better team. Manager wise the Rays and Tigers were super at with Joe Maddon and Jim Leyland.
A few innings from there first World Series the Rays have a good chance at beating the Phillies in World Series in about 5 or 6 games, but they are the best team of comebacks ever even better than the 06 Detroit Tigers this team is determined to get the trophy and the rings. Now I think this is one of the best teamsEVER . They have what it takes from the bench to the AL best bull-pen, they are a team that is young and ready to play. Another specialthing about this team nobody is more important than anybody else plus Joe Maddon the best Manager this team could have. I also would like to credit the GM after all those bold moves to draft picks worked out and now the Rays rock. If only a team could do this every year, they would be MLB champs. This Rays team are a special team and will be good for years to come. It goes to show high draft picks and bold moves can pay and the 08 Rays are out there to win it all at this point and won’t settle for a thing less.
Yuniesky Bentancourt season is a complete fluke, he will still be bad.
RA Dickey won't keep a sub-3.00 ERA for long.
Dayan Vicedo hit his first home run tonight and he should hit some on and off from now and then go on a homer streak. Power will be his speciality for now.
Miguel Cabrera homers will pick up quick.
Justin Smoak got his first hit today, a double, this should be the start for him a he should catch on fire, hitting homers and doubles and getting RBIs and he will always get base hits at any time.
Miguel Cabrera has hit 12 RBIs through 8 games on the current road trip(SEA, LAA, TEX). He should do something to that extent a lot this year and should do very well on the road.
Jorge De La Rosa is a good fit for the Rockies.
