My heart is broken. First Berkman goes to the Yankees, and now he's with the Cards.

The Nationals have also given Matt Stairs a chance to make the team, they signed him to a non-guaranteed deal with them to play for their minor league affiliate.

You could easily remove Oswalt and Hamels from that list if you're asking about the "Ace."

It's either Halladay or Lee. No manager in their right mind would start Oswalt or Hamels over either of those two in games 1 or 2 in a best of 5 or 7 series.

As good as Lee has been these last few years, especially when it comes to walks, it's very hard to argue against Halladay. Outside of win a world title, what has he NOT done yet?

For some unknown reason the Jays re-acquired "E5" Edwin Encarnacion.

I like the move, it's just too bad they missed out on getting Prior and Gregg back.

I'd stop watching baseball if they EVER signed Mark Prior. Even to be a bat boy.

Oh yeah, Greinke fires his agent and requests a trade.
Also has a no-trade clause for about 15 teams, but I bet he is willing to waive that.

Farewell Greinke.



Padres trade 4 players for Jason Bartlett.

Bobby Jenks and Dan Wheeler for the BoSox. Not bad. With all the talk of Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford, the bullpen was always my biggest worry. They had no trouble scoring runs last season, even with half the starting lineup on the DL.

ESPN Report: Greinke and another major leaguer to Milwaukee for Lorenzo Cain, Alcides Escobar, 2 pitching prospects. A Brewers blogger says the other major leaguer is Yuniesky Betancourt. Texas reportedly made an offer "far short" of expectations and Washington made an offer but was told it would cost them Jordan Zimmermann, Drew Storen and Danny Espinoza (ZImmermann & Storen are 2 of our top pitching prospects not named Strasburg).
