The beard's not really the problem, but I'd have no difficulty believing that was the mugshot of a man who had just held up a convenience store for $27.24 and beenfound hiding under a parked car a block away.  The vacant, deer-in-headlights look, flat brim on the cap, flaccid hoodie, etc.  Not his best.
My AL roto dynasty league right now has him rated the 3d best option among the FAs at SS in our league, behind Machado and Segura.  Needless to say, there are also 12 SSs already on rosters that are also ahead of him.  20 HR projection can only buy you so much with .210 average.  I may have to keep Marcus Semien at $20 to avoid bidding wars, but he has batting average risk too.

Considering there are 15 teams in the American League, being the 15th-best SS-eligible player isn't exactly a ringing endorsement, even taking into account guys like Machado and Segura.  Too bad the arm doesn't help in fantasy.

Wasn't Craig supposed to be the one to hit the hole with one shot?

gorzellany signs minor league deal with Mets; Belisle signs with the equivalent of a minor league team in Minneapolis.  Per MLBTR.

No, just for his entrance music and his fcuking gangly-ass running style that somehow focuses all attention on his neck.  Hope he runs up a 7.50 ERA.

Was it Walters for Asbribel Cabrera?  Another Rizzo win.

I know this is the wrong thread so feel free to move it. I was always wondering what trade did Rizzo really lose?

That's a really nice piece.  Can't ask for more than another shot at a year in the game.

Hopefully this works out well for him.  Reads like he's in a good headspace, which is always a plus.

The Blue Jays are “far along” in contract talks with free-agent righty Mat Latos, reports Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet. Nicholson-Smith notes that there’s no guarantee that the Jays will finalize a deal with the Bledsoe Agency client, but they’ve been in touch with Latos’ representatives multiple times over the past couple of weeks.

He and Mike O'Connor's dad must have had the equanimity of the gods to read all of the crap people were posting about their sons.

Wasn't that Mike's mom?  And then there was Lurch, Ryan Church's uncle.     :hysterical:
