    pretty good moves for the phillies, haven't looked at the money involved though.

    Ankiel signs with the Royals and Mets trade for Matthews Jr. wtf? moves.

    Ankiel isn't a completely terrible signing if he can regain his 2007/08 form, he's a good fielder, obviously has a rocket arm and does have pop in his swing. They've made a lot worse investments than Rick.

    Gotta agree with the Matthews deal, that's a real oddball move.

    I hope Ankiel can bring some motivation and leadership as well. It's good to get some more run support for Zach.

    How about Ben Sheets getting 10 million for 1 year from Oakland?

    Ankiel is just a bandage, the Royals won't be any better than last year. :icon_sad:

    I think it's safe to say the Royals won't progress until there's a change in ownership...

    Eh, at first I questioned Glass's willingness to spend, but he has risen the payroll at times, we just never make any good signings. Usually, just gambles at best. I'll know more about completely about ownership and Dayton Moore when all of the kids in the Minors start coming up.

    Report: Braves try to sign Damon

    The Atlanta Braves offered free agent Johnny Damon a one-year deal, reported on Wednesday.

    "I think he'd be a good addition," Braves third baseman Chipper Jones told "He's a guy with experience and he provides us depth at the outfield position."

    Atlanta's offer is believed to be for one year and include deferred money.

    Braves have made quite a few moves, they should be a little better next year. They need consistent hitting.

    The Washington Nationals have signed Willy Taveras to a minor-league deal.


    The Nationals have agreed to terms with right-hander Chien-Ming Wang, a baseball source has confirmed to The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

    Wang could be a decent pickup. Nats are desperately trying to turn the franchise in the right direction.

    That's all I ask! Pitching is pretty much are only problem. Yeah we could use some better players here and there, but our pitching lost us sooo many games last season.

    the nationals are on the right track IMO. should make for a very tough division if they get some consistent pitching.

    Where oh where will Johnny Damon end up? The White Sox and Tigers seem to be the two frontrunners for his services.
