It's low, but it isn't zero percent. I think you're really underestimating that roster over the next 2-3 seasons anyway. After the Braves, and the Cardinals, there isn't another NL team that comes close to putting a 1-8 lineup out there as good as LA.

Edit: Reds

I'm pretty surprised nobody has signed Jose Valverde yet. I know he was a bit of a disaster last year, but I thought somebody would've signed him by now.

don't think the A's can afford him but we might need a reliever with Rage going down for 4-6 weeks as insurance, hopefully Cook can step up though

...Pedro admitted to reporters that 90% of the batters he hit were on purpose.

Pedro maintains, however, there was no pre-meditation for one of his most famous encounters with Karim Garcia in 2003 during the ALCS:

"Not on purpose. It didn't even hit him, it hit the bat. Lucky bastard."

He is destined to be the Mets closer. Fat, great stuff and mentally destroyed. Yes, Mets closer.

Listened to Hamilton talk yesterday, wow that is going to be a bad signing at some point. He is so clueless.

DOU LIOU CITY, Taiwan -- One of South Korea's opponents at the upcoming WBC was forced to apologize on Tuesday after its scouts sneaked into a Korean practice game, in an apparent attempt to gather information on its regional rival ahead of the March 2-19 tournament.

According to the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO), four Taiwanese advance scouts posed as umpire trainees to gain entrance to a practice game at Dou Liou Stadium.

South Korea and Taiwan have been paired in Pool B in the opening round of the WBC. They are scheduled to square off in Taichung, north of Dou Liou, on March 5. The Netherlands and Australia are two other countries in the group. The top two countries from the four squads will reach the second round, and South Korea and Taiwan are regarded as the two favorites.

Once inside the umpires' room, the scouts began timing the delivery of the national team's pitchers, which drew the suspicions of KBO officials.

"We had our suspicions because there seemed to be too many people in the umpires' room," one KBO official said.

"They kept saying they were umpire trainees. But we later learned that they were really scouts and we ejected them from the stadium (in the fourth inning)."

I'm having a hard time understanding why Trout would want to change things up. His body composition last year worked just fine for him. Part of what makes him special is his speed. Would suck if he lost some of that.

Yeah, he already had power, and he clearly has the potential to become one of the best all around players in a long time. Hopefully it doesn't slow him down.

The Reds have signed Mark Prior to a minor league deal.

Maybe Dusty feels guilty about ruining Prior so he's giving him a final shot.

Yeah, if anything, Dusty is overly protective now.
