    Sure there is but adding the DH to the NL is still a few years away

    Phillips has an 80 arm so I don't think they'd entertain that either.

    Brewers are spouting all kinds of nonsense so they don't lose leverage when trading Santana. "Ya, we don't really have to trade the guy. We'll just put Braun at 2b."

    They're also talking about moving him to 1st base, while they have Thames and Aguilar, it's exactly what you're saying. They need to make some moves.

    Baseball Reference will tell you service time, what arb year they are in, when they are a free agent, past and future salaries.

    Roster Resource shows remaining options.

    Yeah this makes the most sense to me, they're just posturing in the name of leverage, trying to make it appear that they're not tied to making a deal.

    MLB Network has an Expos special on right now if anyone is looking to escape the NHL AS game.

    Why isn't Pedro in the CBHOF?

    There are so many unsigned free agents with no team that they're considering setting up their own spring training camp:

    Brewers exercise their unilateral option to move back to the AL, kicking the Astros back to the NL. My sense of 1993 nostalgia back before the wild card and interleague play is partially restored.

    Boras sure has been crying like a little baby lately because teams don't want to pay his exorbitant asking prices.

    So they are going to keep the "Indians" name and just use the "C" logo now?

    They should probably just re-brand completely at this point. Cleveland fans hate the Block C logo. Just lose the Indians altogether.

    I don't see why anyone should be booing or upset about this. This is a pretty offensive logo...I mean, I don't personally give a shit about it but other people do and it seems like a pretty easy change to appease people with a legitimate grievance. There have been much more obscene gestures of political correctness than this in our society. Is there anyone who actually cares about that stupid logo?

    1. Cleveland gets to re-brand = more merch sales.
    2. Cleveland's old crap goes on sale = more poor people in Cleveland get to wear licensed MLB gear.
    3. Some of the team's old stuff will be considered vintage/in limited supply = it goes up in value for the people who hold it.
    4. MLB gets to look slightly less outdated and offensive to that Millennial crowd it is so desperately trying to reach.

    Really it's a win-win scenario at all angles. With how badly MLB's tradition has been molested over the years (inter-league play, wild cards, pitchers don't complete games anymore, too many damn advanced stats taking over the game, the all-star game means something, then it doesn't, numerous, numerous jerseys and cap logos), does anyone actually think this will matter at all to tradition?
