Can someone explain to me why the Mets traded Dickey? are they becoming the Kansas City Royals or something?
Because he's 38, coming off of a fluke season, and demanded an extension when they already had him affordably signed for next season. And because they got an A prospect in return.
Yeah with or without Dickey the Mets still would suck this season and not make the playoffs. The value on Dickey is the highest right now so now would be the time to trade him, you know in case if he starts to suck again and his value goes way down. That and throw in what Miroir Noir said.
So this has nothing to do with, say, Fred Wilpon's close buddy Bernie Madoff?
Naw, they just signed David Wright to a silly eight year contract this week.
Are you fucking serious with this shit, Atlanta?
NOBODY in the hall of fame. No Dale Murphy, no Jack Morris, No Tim Raines, No Craig Biggio. Wow.
Someone sell me on Bagwell. I'm not buying it.
Biggio should be a lock next year. It's ridiculous he didn't get in this year.
OK now show me Cuba's and the DR's.
I hate the World Baseball Classic so much. Actually, mostly I just hate when players from the team I root for compete in it.
The other rosters will be out in a half hour or so.
Wow Team USA looks horrible. The only good thing about this tournament is it gives foreign players some extra exposure to the major league organizations, besides that it's only about the money
No Dodgers on team USA makes me happy.
How Shane Victorino would get on there after his last season is beyond me.

1. whose infield would you rather have Venezuela or Dominican Republic?
2. how does Mexico think Karim Garcia is going to man the entire outfield by himself?
I don't see how the Dominican Republic loses this thing.
Baseball with a short series, anything can happen. I like Venezula personally. They've got the best starter in this thing.
If this were worth caring about more, I'd be all kinds of frustrated that Verlander and Kershaw are sitting out.
Well doesn't Kershaw have his hip thing going on though? But yeah I agree with you.
Yup. Kershaw needs the rest.
So wait, what's that about Dodgers? Hanley Ramirez, Adrian Gonzalez, Luis Cruz, Nick Punto, Ronald Belisario and Paco Rodriguez all out there. And rest assured that, if they weren't coming off injuries, Kershaw and Carl Crawford would be out there too. And probably John Broxton.
Yeah, I said that before all other teams came out with their rosters.....now it's three of our best hitters. :nono
