Can Castro play 2B? He isn't exactly a great fielder. I always thought Bryant at third, Castro at short, and maybe move Baez to OF.

Second is much easier to play than short. His glove would probably be better there.

The Nationals are looking to add an "elite" starting pitcher via trade, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, and they're in luck, as both Max Scherzer and David Price have been rumored to be available this winter. Rosenthal explains his reasons behind believing that Scherzer could be a better fit, highlighted by the fact that Nats GM Mike Rizzo drafte Scherzer in the first round when he was the Diamondbacks' scouting director. Rosenthal's sources maintain that the Tigers aren't shopping Scherzer at this point but rather just listening to offers.

Source: http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/1...e-rangers.html
Quote:
The Washington Post's Adam Kilgore hears from a source who flatly denies that Scherzer will be dealt, and Kilgore wonders if the Tigers' alleged willingness to trade may hint at concerns about Scherzer's future performance.

Here are some items about notable arms that could be had via trade or free agency this offseason...

The Nationals have the minor league depth to acquire the likes of Scherzer or David Price, Kilgore writes. It could be more likely that the Nats pursue a younger pitcher who is under control for more years, a la the team's deal for Gio Gonzalez.

Honestly, I don't. His numbers have declined every year and seems to get dumber as the season progresses. I know he's only 23 but ill take the chance on someone else.

Means I'm gonna have to try to get to Turner by then. I'm not be to complain about having brand new baseball parks to visit either, the one up man ship should lead to an awesome place.

Not familiar at all with Atlanta, but I love urban ballparks so I'm hoping it'll be another awesome destination to get to.

Count me out on Castro to. Nothing against him, but there's plenty of other places this team needs to put money. I'm not opposed to the Mercer/Barmes platoon being the 1 year plan if it gets Burnett and Byrd on the roster.

Turner field was build bc of the olympics and its still a nice stadium even though its been open for 16 years. Its right beside the GA dome (falcons) and they are both in kinda the rough part of town.

Turner is one of the nicest parks in baseball. Seemed like a great location, too... I mean they built it for the Olympics in 96...

The whole thing just sounds stupid. Citizens shouldn't vote on stadium funding....ever. People will almost always vote yes because they don't understand how it works.

Atlanta has no fans that go to the games even when they win. The new stadium should seat 30K.

Interesting chart I saw on Deadspin that gives you hint as to how their new stadium location is a bit more logical. I don't agree with the public funding and the fact that the people of Cobb County wont be able to vote on it, but they are technically getting closer to the their fan base. Atlanta seems like a sprawling city that overtime has become more populated in suburban areas than its urban areas, like many other American cities.

You can see where the new stadium is located in relation to their season ticket holders in comparison to Turner Field.

Atlanta seems like a sprawling city that overtime has become more populated in suburban areas than its urban areas, like many other American cities.

You can see where the new stadium is located in relation to their season ticket holders in comparison to Turner Field.
It's pretty simple. Black people live in Atlanta. White people live in the burbs. White people watch baseball a hell of a lot more than black people (and have much more expendable income).

A lot of parks are built downtown because people like to visit and go to the bars and such, but having married someone from Georgia and spent a good deal of time down there, the attitude towards Atlanta was always tepid at best.

Anyway, since it's in Cobb County I hope they do the right thing and name it Big Bossman Field.



HARD TIMES!!

Tigers and Joe Nathan showing "mutual interest". And they are apparently letting clubs know that they are going to trade either Porcello or Scherzer.
