    All-of-a-sudden I still have some hope that Martin, Loney, Saenz, and Lowe will send theirs back finally.

    Anyhow...Thanks to Jeff Kent for finally getting these back to me.
    Who did you send them to? The team ? One of my best friends, who pitched for the Expos/Nats told me to never have anything sent to him via the teams address because it would take too long for him to get it.

    Not that you had a choice though.

    I sent them all directly to each player at Dodger Stadium's address. Gonzo got his back to me within a week. Kent was the only other player to send theirs back (so far), and his took four months.
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    Anyone find it weird that in an article with Torre discussing A-Rod, there's a picture of Torre with Jeter?

    LaRoche is leading Team USA in hitting through 5 games. He has 3 home runs and 9 RBI.

    His stock is really high right now.

    Except Cabrera is still arbitration eligible for 2 years while Santana is a free agent after 1. We're going to lose those prospects anyways, I'd rather do it for a position player who is going to play everyday and someone who we have a chance at re-signing. Methinks you forgot Santana was an impending FA. Otherwise you wouldn't have brought that up with Miguel.
    No, I found that out back at last season's trading deadline. I guess we just disagree. If Johan is traded, I see him agreeing to re-sign with LA. If Cabrera is traded, I see him leaving after 2 seasons. I don't know why, just a feeling. Anyway, my only real problem in losing Bills and/or Kershaw for Cabrera is that we lose 1, maybe 2 prime potential pitchers without replacing them. Whereas in trading for Santana, we gain one, and a big one at that.

    Completely concur here. I like Cabrera just like the next guy but not at the potential price tag of Kemp, Billingsly or Kershaw. I just think the Dodgers would be better off letting them develop and trying to get A-Rod or Lowell AND Johan.

    Does everyone know around the time the schedule gets finalized each year?

    I'm planning to go to SD the first weekend The Dodgers are there and the tentative schedule lists that to be the first weekend of the season.

    Let's assume both guys would re-sign with LA if they were traded here.

    I would much rather give a long term mega deal to a hitter who hasn't even entered his prime yet in Miguel Cabrera over a Johan Santana who would be entering his 30s. Even if he's the best player in baseball, I'm not a fan of huge long term deals for pitchers when they are getting older.

    Bad body or not, I think the chances of Cabrera getting long term injuries are much smaller than Santana.

    Cabrera Update:
    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...ors/index.html

    NEW YORK -- The Florida Marlins are trying to hit a grand slam in trade talks involving All-Star third baseman Miguel Cabrera, executives involved in the discussions say.

    The price is so prohibitive and includes multiple top-tier prospects -- the kind of young players that are hardly ever traded anymore -- that executives believe the Marlins will have to drop their price significantly to deal Cabrera. Because the requests have been jaw-dropping, teams say they don't see anything happening until the winter meetings next month.

    For Cabrera, 24, the Marlins are requesting a package of four top young players, according to industry sources, and prime names that interest them are believed to include pitchers Joba Chamberlain or Phil Hughes from the New York Yankees, outfielder Jacoby Ellbsury and pitcher Clay Buchholz from the Boston Red Sox, pitching prospect Clayton Kershaw from the Los Angeles Dodgers, and second baseman Howie Kendrick and pitching prospect Nick Adenhart from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

    Specifically from the Yankees, it is believed the Marlins seek either Chamberlain or Hughes, plus outfielder Melky Cabrera, outfield prospect Jose Tabata and a fourth prospect. Meanwhile, the Yankees are telling people they would not consider parting with their two best pitching prospects in a deal for anyone other than Minnesota Twins ace Johan Santana.

    The Dodgers and Angels are considered the biggest players in the Cabrera derby, not only because both teams could upgrade at third base but because they have the types of prospects Florida covets. In addition to Kershaw, the Marlins would have interest in several Dodgers players, including third baseman Andy La Roche, first baseman James Loney, outfielder Matt Kemp and pitcher Chad Billinsgley. Angels players thought to be targeted, beyond Kendrick and Adenhart, would be third-base prospect Brandon Wood and/or first baseman Casey Kotchman.

    Complicating matters, the Dodgers, Angels and Red Sox are also seen as players in the Alex Rodriguez sweepstakes. Although, some of the teams interested in Cabrera, who hit .320 with 34 home runs and 119 RBIs, are believed to view him as more a first baseman than a third baseman. The Red Sox and Angels could be two such teams.

    The Angels have refused to part with their prospects in many deals over the past few years, but a change at general manager, from Bill Stoneman to Tony Reagins, could lead to a change in tactics.

    The Cleveland Indians, San Francisco Giants and Chicago White Sox are three more teams reported to have shown interest in Cabrera.
    Suck my d***, Marlins brass.
