It's hard to believe we've been blogging so many years.

Total RBIs + Runs.

Everyone this year was terribly over priced and just not worth it.

Maybe Hamilton but very risky.

Is there anyone that you really died about that we did not get?

I pleased by Amaro's cost effective GMing. He looks to have matured in that role somewhat. This team's dearth of power will probably be its undoing, but if they an stay in contention until July, and I think they can, they can hopefully fix that then.

Please, no on the Hairston idea!!

I'd rather gamble on Berkman's health, trade for Kubel, or just go with what we have over Scott Hairston!!

I agree.

I would rather see Dom Brown in RF as the starter, and Ruff starting in LF with Mayberry and Nix mixing in.

At the All-Star Break we will see, and have the money to trade for a Outfielder.
