Link that provides financial information about every MLB team.

http://www.bloomberg...eam-values.html

 

Interesting how the Jays, even with all the hype and advance ticket sales after "winning" the 2012-2013 offseason, rank just 17th in Team Value and 23rd in Gate Receipts. ;)

Thought for sure your favorite Yankee is Ellsbury.  Dude is doing it all, just like I said he would if he stays healthy.

not exactly a stretch to think he would do well as a Yankees if healthy considering his career stats..............based on what I read in the Boston papers he really did not fit in the Sox clubhouse as he was not out going.........he seems like a better fit for the Yankees culture and clubhouse IMHO..............


IT IS A GREAT TIME TO BE A SLASH FAN!

He's an extremely quiet, private person.  Doesn't mean he doesn't "fit in", all it means is that he's probably never gonna be a clubhouse leader or have a locker-room presence.  If you expect him to change now that he's in pinstripes, you'll be disappointed.  His mild mannered demeanor has already been talked about on the YES Network, he's still himself and will always be.

 

And as just one example of how little the Boston reporters know about the off-the-field lives of players, read this:

 

"We had a day off and I got checked out and then I got this news," Pedroia said. "I'm driving home and I'm just sick about it. Then I get this text from Jacoby [Ellsbury]. He says, 'Are you OK?'

"I tell him, 'I've torn the ligaments in my thumb. I might need surgery,'" Pedroia recalled. "He comes back with, 'Is there any way you can play through it? We need you.'"

Until that moment, Pedroia admitted, he was mentally preparing to undergo the operation, be fitted for a cast and be sidelined for weeks.

"Jacoby hasn't said something like that to me in seven years we've been together," Pedroia said. "I looked at [my wife] Kelli, and I told her about Jacoby's text. Then I said, 'I gotta play with this. He would do it for me. All the guys would. I have to do it for them.'"

 

"Jacoby loves playing in Boston. There's this misconception out there that all he wanted to do this year was maximize his value so he could go somewhere else. That's not fair. He's been a great teammate, a huge part of our team. I'll be really happy if I show up to spring training and see him there."

Aaron Harang pulled after pitching 7 no-hit innings.  Pitch count was at 121.  What a start he's off to this year--a 0.70 ERA in his first four starts.

That's the right call at his age and this early in the season.

 

You're right, he's red hot to start of this season! One of the biggest surprises so far.

Yeah, definitely the right call.  Wish he would have had a lower pitch count to have a chance to go for it though.  He had 6 walks that killed his chances of going the distance though.

 

How about Pedro Alvarez attempting to field a grounder when Martin Maldonado literally hit the cover off the ball:  http://milwaukee.bre...0&vkey=news_mil

 

Don't think I've seen an infielder attempt to field and throw a ball like that before.

I was watching that live. It looked like a squirrel in the field and a duck after he threw it. I've never seen that before in an MLB game.

And we probably won't see it again--at least certainly not any time soon.

Delino Deshields, Jr. was hit by a pitch in the face during a AA game last night:

I remember his dad got traded straight up for a young pitcher by the name of Pedro Martinez.

 

I think that's one trade the Dodgers wish they never made. :lol:
