That was all Albert's fault too!

And the Cardinals apparently have a tired catcher as well

But more the important question is whether the corrected version of the 2001 Topps Pujols card really exists

Although it APPEARS they`ve wised up a BIT, meaning it`s not simply buying anyone, the Angles approach reminds me of the Washington Redskins. Anaheim willl Spend spend spend without any real reason, but maybe I should shut the hell up coming from the land of David Price/Sandoval/"fill in the blank cuban prospect" etc etc. Sandoval 50 mill, out the door is just the latest example of the ole "Bosox" mentality coming back to haunt them. Next up Price, who it appears more every day, can`t pitch in Boston. Well there`s ONLY about 150 balloons left on that gem, $ 10.50 12 once drafts and 100.00 to park here we come !

Default Price had a 4.5 fWAR season there in 2016

and injury has plagued him this season. Had he gotten the same number of inn as 2016 he'd be above 3 fWAR. That's pretty good.

Hard to fault going after Price ex ante. Sandoval was an obvious huge mistake, the guy IMO was tremendously overrated despite some good post-season showings.

The biggest question with Price was did he really want to come and pitch in Boston. He`s flat out quoted as saying he came for ONE reason, the $$$$$$. Can`t fault a guy for that but, the Sox had J. Lester yes a few years older but a known commodity that had proven it in this market, especially playoff games. The owner, John Henry, stated we don`t give 30+ year old pitchers massive long term deals. IMO Lester stays for 130 for 6, but all water under the bridge now. A large % of the fan base really wants Price to opt out of this deal but the chances of that happening are pretty slim, now with the recurring elbow problems more likely zero.

Kind of hijacking the thread, but Mauer is more of a "should he / shouldn't he" in the HOF talks. His first 7-8 years he had a couple batting titles, MVP and All-Star almost every year. Since moving to first he's hit .260 ish with 7-10 hrs / season.

Mauer is a catcher so I guess he gets credit for what he's done, but to me his career is no different than Mattingly or Nomar's. I don't think he makes the cut.

Unless Mauer regains his prior form he will be off the ballot the first year. He's declining rapidly and will probably retire with less than 50 WAR a 120 or so wRC+ and not that great on the counting stats either.

His collapse is pretty interesting really since 2014 he's only been a slightly above avg hitter and that doesn't hack it at 1b.
