    "I think our fans have been great," Greenberg said on the "Ben and Skin Show" on 103.3 KESN. "I think particularly in Game 3 of the World Series they just blew away anything I've seen in any venue during the postseason, I thought Yankee fans, frankly, were awful. They were either violent or apathetic, neither of which is good. So I thought Yankee fans were by far the worst of any I've seen in the postseason. I thought they were an embarrassment."

    It's open season on Yankee fans in Texas.

    Which has nothing to do with Yankees fans or Cliff Lee's impending Free Agency. Greenberg is way out of line with this unprovoked garbage.

    Well, it was pretty embarassing to see the stadium empty out the way it did.

    Sparky Anderson is receiving home hospice care, as he suffers from complications from demetia. Sad to hear that he's in failing health, especially at a relatively early age (76), unfortunately such is life. I hope he's made as comfortable as possible.

    It's now being reported that he has passed away. RIP.

    According to Ken Rosenthal, Dan Uggla turned down a 4 yr, 12 mil per extension. LINK

    He is going to get about $10M in arbitration. I think he can get offer better than 3 years $38M when he's a FA.

    NL Gold Gloves!:

    P: Bronson Arroyo
    C: Yadier Molina
    1B: Albert Pujols
    2B: Brandon Phillips
    SS: Troy Tulowitzki
    3B: Scott Rolen
    OF: Shane Victorino
    OF: Michael Bourn
    OF: Carlos Gonzalez


    excellent selections, IMO. you can beef about the OFers a bit, and Rolen over Zimmerman, but generally very good picks.

    I definitely would've given it to Zimmerman over Rolen.

    Zimmerman's defense wasn't enough to get his team to the playoffs; Rolen's was.

    The San Diego Padres don't have a single player under contract beyond the 2011 season. In fact they only have one player under contract for 2011 and that's Adrian Gonzalez at a ridiculously low $5.5 million. Can someone please tell me why they fired Kevin Towers.

    The bat Kirk Gibson used for his historic home run for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 1988 World Series sold for $575,912.40 early Sunday in SCP Auctions' October/November auction.

    That's because they are mostly under team control or haven't reached free agency. You can assume they are signed for 2011.

    Yes, I know. The point is they have no one signed to a multi-year contract after 2011.

    Uggla to ATL for Infante and the everlasting Mike Dunn. Definitely like the deal for the Braves.

    The deal should be regected by Selig. The Marlins have a new stadium and have been told to spend more money and the pull off a lopsided salary dump like this. Ridiculous.

    They gave him a very respectable extension offer. Uggla just made up his mind and turned that down.

    I recall they offered him 4/48, or $12 a year for 4 years. That is an incredibly team friendly extension. They are saving 3-4 million a year on that deal. They got nothing for him, nothing. I said that the Marlins were better off taking the draft picks for Cabrera/Willis, but that's hindsight. This is pretty obvious. There's no way some team couldn't beat that offer. The Yankees should have called and tried to get in a three way (ha!) with this.
