this may be of some local interest
As per ESPN, Carl Crawford has supposedly agreed to a 7 year, $142 million deal with the Boston Red Sox. This is good for him but bad for the Tigers.
If Tigers fans have been following the offseason then they will know Detroit was working with something like a $61 million salary cap and was looking to sign big name free agents. They landed Victor Martinez and Joaquin Benoit but are still looking for more particularly in the outfield.
So far they have whiffed on Adam Dunn, Jayson Werth, and now Carl Crawford all potential prospects. This pretty much blows.
Josh Hamilton has become only the 6th guy to be the number one pick and win the MVP. http://sports.espn.go.com/dallas/mlb/news/story?id=5841798
That will help us although what to do with Avila...
Rome: What was the fine for?
Wilson: (psh) Having too much awesome on my feet.
Probably out for 12-18 months. Sucks for the kid, hopefully he can make it back just as strong.
"Ask the Mets how much they enjoy having to pay Bobby Bonilla $1.1 million from 2011 to 2035 after he last played for the Mets in 1999."
I realize this really doesn't have much to do with UM, but seriously?
Maybe Gary Bettman needs to get on the case and start investigating baseball contracts... ha.
And after further investigation... it's true.. nice retirement package.
