    No way she keeps both jobs beyond 2019, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if she was only doing one of them by mid-season.

    CC starting the year on the DL after 2 offseasons surgeries too. Lovely.

    His high 80s slider is unfair after pumping in 100+ mph FBs

    Some notable names are approaching significant milestones in 2019. Among them...


    Angels first baseman/DH Albert Pujols has already reached numerous career milestones. He has 3,082 hits, 633 home runs and he leads all active hitters in most counting stats. But he could add to those numbers this season.

    Pujols needs 17 runs for 2,000 career runs scored, which would move him into the top 20 all-time. Pujols is already ninth with 5,652 career total bases. With 101 total bases, he could move ahead of Pete Rose into eighth all-time. Pujols ranks 10th all-time with 639 career doubles. Another 30 would move into the top five all-time. Pujols is 18 RBIs away from 2,000 career RBIs, which would move him into fifth place all-time.

    • Bartolo Colon needs three wins for 250 career wins.
    • CC Sabathia needs four wins for 250 career wins. Sabathia also needs 14 strikeouts to reach 3,000 career strikeouts.
    • Craig Kimbrel needs 34 saves to move into the Top 10 in career saves.
    • Miguel Cabrera is 35 home runs away from 500 career homers.
    • Robinson Cano is 30 hits away from 2,500 career hits.

    The Atlanta Braves need 4 more pitchers to require Tommy John surgery to make a full 20 since 2005.

    probably for another team in the 2nd half if he continues being great for the rangers. they could get a huge haul for a really good reliever that’s cheap and controllable for 5-6 years

    Just in MLB. Over 65 in the organization. Most over MLB in that time and a lot is blamed on Roger McDowell.

    Has there been any rumor that suggests Keuchel or Kimbrel could sign any time soon? Seems like there's nothing out there for either guy.

    We have the money to blow, we are sitting under last years payroll with supposedly good budget. Its not a matter of cheap enough, more so is that where we want to invest.
