i would love sheets, less $$$ than burnett (who had injuries like sheets),and imo just as good if not better when healthy. thats key though, will sheets make it a full year? the trade for Javier Vazquez isnt that great imo. gave up the hottest prospect for an overpaid starter. flowers (the catcher in the deal) tore it up in fall/winter ball, huge power. he was blocked in the braves system, but coulda been used in a trade for peavy (who makes about what Javier Vazquez does).

Still holding out hopes for Peavy now that that deal to the Cubs fell through!

Beyond that, I'm depressed.

You guys don't want Sheets.

Ultimate tease, gets hurt at the WORST possible times.

Peavy will get moved right before the deadline next year, when his value will be highest, IMO.

I'm pissed at Hendry for not getting the Peavy deal done.

(we also just signed Jamie Moyer to another 2 years which means he will be pitching until he is 87 years of age)

I'm fully convinced that Moyer has joined cockroaches and Cher as things that will survive the apocalypse.

So now it's what pitcher we get for Escobar now that Furcal is back. It will be nice to have his speed and strong arm back in the infield.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
