    Ya, I mean, I don't think most of us are expecting to be down for like 3-4 years before starting to compete again. But I'm at the very least expecting to just cut our losses with as many bad investments as possible just to clear up space in the next couple years. 2012 is going to be a lost season, so already accepting that I can enjoy some of these moves more.

    I think getting Rizzo out of Petco and into Wrigley will really help him. Hopefully. I think he's someone us Cubs fans are going to be really excited about come spring training.

    • Have heard that Rizzo starts the year in Iowa and Bryan LaHair starts at 1B.

                GOD DAMN IT!

                Who the hell can the Tigers get as a replacement this late in free agency?

                They're either going to make Delmon Young the DH and sign an outfielder (Cespedes? ugh), or sign someone like Carlos Pena from the veteran scrap heap.

                ****.

                  Give Prince a huge one year deal and let him enter the market again next year. :/

                  • A case for Carlos Pena: He starts at 1B vs. RHP (.388 OBP in 2011) and sits vs. LHP (.260 OBP). Cabrera is DH vs. RHP, 1B vs. LHP.

                        I'm willing to bet money that their option A will be Cespedes like you said.

                              3 years - $16M. Buys out his 3 arbitration years.

                                I don't want Cespedes. I didn't particularly want him pre-VMart injury, and I especially don't want him now because he's such a projection. When he was going to supplement a capable lineup, it was one thing. When he'll be expected to start and counted on for 25 HR and a .300 average, that just won't work.
