    He's back on the 40 man roster but the Giants are not going to reinstate him for the postseason.

    Yes, the 50 games extended through the first five games of the postseason. But as Ram Man said, the Giants had already announced that they would not put him on the roster for any postseason series.

    Yeah; that's a pretty dumb move by the Reds organization. They'll still be a playoff team, but I'm not sure how long the window is and they're wasting it with Baker in the dugout.

    Forget extended. He should have been fired for the fifth inning of the deciding game 5 loss in the NLDS. Grady Little had a quicker hook.

    If Detroit wins the World Series, Miguel Cabrera will join Frank Robinson and Mickey Mantle as the only hitters to win a Triple Crown and World Series in the same season.

    A's get Chris Young for Cliff Pennington and someone named Yordy Cabrera. DBacks flip Cabrera to Marlins for Heath Bell.

    Why are you allowed to make trades during the playoffs?

    I think that sort of seals the deal that out of the whole roster who can be traded it looks like A-rod will probably be a Yankee in 2013.

    I don't understand how Young doesn't command a hell of a lot more than that. I imagine the Yankees would have given up more than that.

    Unquestionably. All the Marlins got was salary relief.

    I suppose the A's won that but its hard to call them winners when their prize is a guy with a career OPS+ 95 and declining power numbers.

    Then again, Beane's desire for power in that park they play in is a good strategy and couple that with the good defense he'll provide, I guess he is worth the 10 million the A's normally don't pay their players.

    It says they got cash in the deal, too. Not sure how much, but they won't be paying his whole salary.
