They have been on the hunt very seriously especially since the Yankee's seem to be dropping like flies.
I would be willing to bet they have one within a week or two.

Dutchis, the Tigers are very interested in acquiring Marmol from the Cubbies...you can have his contract and his blown saves...who knows, maybe an address change would be good for him...

With Texiera going down, the Yankees are looking at either Hafner or Swisher as their everyday 1B, with Youklis at 3rd..NY could have the worst fielding infield in MLB...:) x 1000

With just over a week til Opening Day there are a lot of players still with DL possibilities:
Texeira - DL - Could need season ending surgery
Jeeter - Possible to start season on DL, with Swisher let go and Tex and Hughes not there for Opening Day if he goes
            so do the Yankees.

NY Mets
Wright - still not sure
Murphy - if he doesn't play by Monday he will start on the DL
Santana - Still not even long tossing, he will not be ready for start

Okay folks we are two days away from the unofficial end of the first half. Was fun reading your lreseason posts and what has happened to the teams. Have been compiling the stats and by Monday night you will see what has happened to your team
Some have been using the crying towel correctly and others are waving them proudly.
Where do you stand at the halfway point?

This was different and exciting:

SAN DIEGO -- There is no secret when it comes to facing Cincinnati Reds reliever Aroldis Chapman and his 100 mph fastball.

"He's not going to do anything tricky,'' the San Diego Padres' Chris Denorfia said. "He's going to throw it 100 mph. You have to be ready for the fastball. You have to sit on the fastball. It comes so quickly it's hard for you to do anything with it.''  First pitch, 98 MPH, over Center Field fence.

I decided to guess "over or under" on these projections and see how close I come in October.

2013 MLB Season Win Totals:
                                                      Season Win Total
- Arizona Diamondbacks 81.5 -- OVER   81

- Atlanta Braves 86 -- OVER              96

- Baltimore Orioles 76.5 -- OVER      85

- Boston Red Sox 79.5 -- UNDER       97

- Chicago Cubs 72 -- UNDER             66

- Chicago White Sox 80.5 -- UNDER   63

- Cincinnati Reds 88.5 -- UNDER        90

- Cleveland Indians 77.5 -- OVER       92

- Colorado Rockies 71.5 -- OVER        74

- Detroit Tigers 90 -- UNDER              93

- Houston Astros 59.5 -- OVER            51

- Kansas City Royals 79 -- UNDER       86

- Los Angeles Angels 89.5 -- OVER       78

- Los Angeles Dodgers 90 -- UNDER     92

- Miami Marlins 64.5 -- OVER                62

- Milwaukee Brewers 79.5 -- UNDER      74

- Minnesota Twins 64.5 -- OVER             66

- New York Mets 74 -- OVER                  74

- New York Yankees 86.5 -- OVER          85

- Oakland Athletics 83 -- OVER              96

- Philadelphia Phillies 81.5 -- UNDER       73

- Pittsburgh Pirates 79 -- OVER grin1       94

- San Diego Padres 74.5 -- UNDER          76

- San Francisco Giants 86 -- UNDER         76

- Seattle Mariners 76.5 -- OVER               71

- St. Louis Cardinals 85.5 -- UNDER          97

- Tampa Bay Rays 86 -- UNDER                92     

- Texas Rangers 87 -- UNDER                    91

- Toronto Blue Jays 86.5 -- UNDER              74

- Washington Nationals 90 -- UNDER            86
 

14-16   Fair guessing Blitz considering spring training had just started when you did it.

Huh, not bad I guess some were WAY off but most were within the same ballpark (pun intended).  Thanks for tallying those up Dutch.
Don't give up.  Don't ever give up.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.
