    Yah. I'm thinking a variation of something around 7 years $25 million per.

    He did lose some sort of leverage wth the dodgers signing that Cuban dude.

    I really think that Cano stays with the Yankees. The rumors are that Cashman is looking to retain Cano and bring in McCann, Beltran and Tanaka. I am hoping for all of that except McCann who, in addition to being overrated, is a colossal douche nozzle.

    I'm sure McCann will show the Yankees how to comport themselves according to the finest baseball tradition. I mean, the franchise was practically born yesterday so they could use a guy who's been there and done it all

    Prince is a good guy. He really does try. But, he doesn't have what it takes to play 1st base. And, in post season play, since coming to Detroit, what has he done? This year, when we needed Prince to pick up the team when Cabrera was hurt, all we got was a zero. And for the money that he is being paid, he is expected to produce. It is easier to fix "getting arrested, drunk..." than curing a slump. I hope that, in the off season, Prince gets some help--counseling, whatever. We need him.

    On the radio, today, I heard one bit of wisdom: Detroit needs to get healthy more than it needs a "name" manager.

    OK, so not the cleanest start to the Series but we'll take it. I do get the sense after facing Tampa and Detroit pitching, the Sox won't be intimidated by the Cards big arms...?

    Looks like John Lester has been hanging out with Clay Buchholz.

    Sorry, what are we looking at? The discolored spot where his thumb meets the webbing?

    Yeah, he said it was rosin. I am surprised nobody made a big deal out of it like they did with Rogers.

    I'm sure the Cards take great comfort from all the statistical analyses saying there's no such thing as a clutch hitter ...

    yah, but they probably take more comfort from that 3 run 7th.

    Awesome pitching tonight. Ferrel deserved to lose this game by ignoring statistics and playing Gomes (the most annoying batter's box routine of all time)(also not better than Nava).
