someone should convince doc to actually give it a go for another year. I'd rather have him than some of the other players his age currently on the roster. any chance he can renegotiate his deal into a longer one?

oh totally. Sports in general has gotten pretty stupid recently. I rarely take sports very seriously and don't get caught up in the wins and losses because it really doesn't mean much to me. I'll watch to be entertained, but as soon as i feel the entertainment slipping or i'm not enjoying it, i will turn off the TV do something else. easy.

The Rangers selected Russel Wilson (Seattle Seahawks QB) In the rule 5 draft, what the hell? Why pick a player thats already playing in a different sport in a pro league? Would that not be a waste?

He already said he's not interested in playing, but it would be cool to see another player do it again.

Report: Blue Jays are a 'leading candidate' to sign Jimenez, Santana - CBSSports.com


Quote:
It has been a pretty quiet offseason for the Blue Jays so far, but the team is considered a "leading candidate" to sign Ubaldo Jimenez or Ervin Santana, reports Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. The Cubs' Jeff Samardzija remains on their radar as well. Toronto figures to acquire one and possibly two starting pitchers before the end of the winter.

The market for Jimenez, Santana and pretty much every notable starting pitcher has been on hold thanks to the Masahiro Tanaka situation. Teams wanted to see if he would be made available before pouncing on one of the other free agent starters, and they'll probably wait until after Tanaka signs -- the deadline is 5pm ET on Jan. 24 -- before moving on to the alternatives.

Jimenez and Santana both rejected qualifying offers, so teams will have to forfeit a draft pick to sign them. That is a small deterrent for the Blue Jays because they have two protected first round picks -- their natural first rounder (which is ninth overall and protected from free agent compensation) and a compensation pick for failing to sign last year's first rounder (11th overall, also protected). They would only have to surrender their second rounder to sign one of those guys.

According to the park factors at FanGraphs, Rogers Centre has been one of the most homer happy ballparks in baseball the last few years. Jimenez has been better at preventing the long ball than Santana these last three seasons (0.95 vs. 1.33 HR/9) despite having a lower ground ball rate (43.1 vs. 44.3 percent). There is more to life than homer and ground ball rates, however. Both guys have their strengths and weaknesses.

The Blue Jays are slated to have Mark Buehrle, R.A. Dickey and Brandon Morrow in the rotation this coming season after losing Josh Johnson to free agency. J.A. Happ and Todd Redmond are candidates to fill the other two spots, but at this point Ricky Romero isn't much of a consideration. He's been a disaster these last two years.

I'd rather Santana tbh. Both have similar career numbers though.

This team really needs some home-grown prospects to emerge out of no where.

That Japanese pitcher named Tanaka that the Jays were after? Yeah...just signed for 22 million a year for 7 years with the Yankees. Wow.

Never threw an MLB pitch in his life.

So... Are the jays looking strong again? Did we refuel? Or are we looking to actually be one of the weaker teams in the division this time around?

maybe the jays will be what they should of been last year, I think a lot is riding on the 3-5 starters. Ir morrow, hutch, drabek and co. (or whoever gets those spots) preforms maybe we'll be alright
