  1. yup. we need to bombard Randy and Hal with RS tweets and email – hoping the tiny light bulb in their heads comes on.

    Should they sign him – you only have yourself to blame (you and every other impatient blogger;) you've been wanting them to do SOMETHING all off-season. Sure, this isn't the right thing, but it IS something.

  2. I'd much prefer Oswalt on a one year deal, but I think he is going to stay in the National League.

  3. I'd certainly give Edwin Jackson the same deal we gave Rafael Soriano ;)

    The longer the offseason goes on without Jackson being signed, the lower his demand will be, so I'm a fan of "talking" with him.

  4. The time to spend on a free agent starter came and went with better options than Edwin Jackson in the forms of Wilson, Burhrle, and Darvish (posting system duly noted). Persuing Jackson reminds me of the ill-famed Jaret Wright signing: inconsistent starter with decent fastball and upside that seems to always fall short of great… I'd dangle Montero and take the best available offer for a starting pitcher.

  5. Seeing the "D" word – had an evil thought occur to me; any chance, any rumors or whisperings that Texas might have made their insane posting bid, JUST to keep Yu away from someone who might need and sign him?
