Three more days until catchers and pitchers report – exciting times ahead.

Not sure how I feel about this yet. Bruce has been pretty terrible at a ballpark that is very friendly for hitter during the last few years. But, maybe a change of scenery and joining the best offence in baseball will turn things around for him.

Ian Desmond gets 1 year, $8 million from the Rangers.

He turned down a qualifying offer ($15.8 million) after last season.

He turned down a 7-year, $105 million extension after the 2013 season.

Well played, Ian.

lol! Since Desmond is a bitch I gotta admit this gives me much pleasure

Although 8 million bucks is still great but whenever you're offered over 100 and have to settle...that's pathetic.

Cole upset at Pirates over salary

Apparently, Cole is pissed. According to the article, the Pirates have a system in place in which the maximum raise they will offer a player who is not eligible for arbitration is $7,000.

This is a real issue, though. It happened with Trout a few years ago. The better players are getting younger, and the younger guys don't make any money. Then they reach their 30s and start to decline and we complain about them being overpaid.
