Maddux thing. What?

I guess I should not be surprised since a lot of best players have abnormal personality.

Think Jeter will top that?

I'm sure there are some weird Mussina stories out there, guy always came off as kind of odd.

Loved his crossword puzzles though.

He was quiet and nerdy. I don't think he was crazy like Maddux. Although Moose did buy the old flag pole from monument park in the old stadium. It has to be a few stories tall. Put it on his farm Pennsylvania. I always thought that was really cool.

I think A-Rod will fight it in court and be allowed to play while that goes on.

I'm happy because it helps us get Tanaka but in reality this really isn't fair to A-Rod. He should only get 50 if anything. there is no doubt he's gulilty of everything but The man has still never failed a test under the drug program.

Good chance he will never opt out. Don't expect Yankees to fork over 35m per season, please.

I don't know. If he stays healthy, keeps dominating like this....I can easily see him opt out. Again, he'll only be 30 years old when he can hit the market again.

He could do exactly what CC did. Opt out at 30 to get them to add another 3 years on. So he could basically get 10 years at 30 mil a year.

I like the Kershaw deal and think he's unique because of how young he is and was when he made his major league debut. He made his major league debut at age 20 but was a super two guy so he got an extra year of arbitration, but still because he made his debut at such a young age he was going to be able to get a new contract when he still had four years left in his twenties.

I don't think Scherzer should expect a deal like this because he's not going to give you four seasons of pitching in his 20s like Kershaw will.

Yes, pitchers don't regress to the same degree position players do when they enter their thirties, but that makes Kershaw even more appealing because you're getting him for the rest of his twenties and potentially in his early thirties when he could still be really productive.

Sabathia opted out with 4 remaining years. Kershaw would opt out with 2 remaining years. He can get a lengthy contract at 32 years old (33 years old O-Day).


2 things I can see Kershaw to opt out.

1- Cash for final 2 seasons is descending.
2- Seek for more secured money prior to turning 37 years old.

I'm not joking. I fully expect them to lock him up sometime during this season or during the 2014 offseason

9 yr deal for $200-$215 mill is my guess for what they'll sign him for. Buys out his 3 arb years then it's basically a 6yr contract. He'll then have the luxury of being a FA again when he's 31 years old and cashing in on another 9-10 yr deal from whomever

Instant Replay will be expanded in 2014. 1 challenge a game and then if you get it right you win 1 more challenge. No more than 2.

It's an improvement, but don't you wish there was just a replay official charged with watching a baseball game and then alerting the umps when something obvious needs to be overturned? (Like with college football)

That's a more efficient method and it gets more calls correct without needing to put the burden on the managers decide whether to ask for something that should never have been wrong in the first place.

That's a more efficient method and it gets more calls correct without needing to put the burden on the managers decide whether to ask for something that should never have been wrong in the first place.
Yes that would be the most ideal situation. I guess they don't want to delay the game a million times though and now this way they can limit it to just the two.

Everything is pretty much reviewable except for balls and strikes and the neighborhood play at 2B.

I just hate that the responsibility to get a big call correct is now in the hands of the managers every bit as much as the umpires themselves.

It will open avenues for undue criticism of managers who have enough other things to be considering.
