    In his deal with the #Dodgers, Scott Kazmir has an opt-out after the first year of his three-year deal


    Man, I should've become a mediocre baseball player. I'd be set for life by now.

    TV money has created a major salary bubble in MLB. This is all fucking NUTS. Heyward's deal with the Cubs is crazy, Price's is fucking STUPID... And then you have these guys who are middle of the road ball players making 48 over 3.

    The bubble will burst. It has to. And it'll be ugly for someone. The owners, the players, or the fans. One of the three. And only one of those three isn't contractually obligated to anything.

    Baseball salaries are almost as insane as deals made by SiriusXM radio with certain individuals.

    Yup. Dodgers paid a boatload for a bunch of chicken shit. Glad Greinke left. Puig sucks.

    Yeah, I kinda wished the Dodgers unloaded Puig for a shit load of prospects before the whole world
    finally came to realize what the dodgers knew all along about Yasiel.

    Definitely. I'm not to happy about that. Will see how he does in the National league. If he can give us 15 wins that would be freaking nice.

    Oh for sure. I think any fan of any team would take 15 wins from any guy
    who isnt #1 in their rotation.

    it's a pretty not terrible contract I suppose
    it ain't gonna kill LA
    and kazmir is an ok pitcher--he's a good third I suppose


    you gotta learn to look at the insanity of these deals as if they're perfectly reasonable
    then you can make what seems like reasonable comments on them--even though it's all nuts

    You're right; I'm wrong. I didn't realize he pitched for three teams last year.

    I blame these two guys and their agents in the early 90's for fucking up baseball salaries/signing bonuses...

    Heard the Tribe wanted to trade Carlos Carasco a rhp for Puig. Fuck no Puig sucks dick. He got figured out real quick. Kazmir was good for the Tribe in 13 but not worth that much. Give me some good Puig stories. I hear Grenkie hated him and through all his shit of the team bus.
