Two trades of Rule V picks after the draft. Luis Oveido drafted by the Mets and traded to the Pirates and Zach Pop taken by the Diamondbacks and traded to the Marlins.

So the Marlins who are trying to rebuild their relief corp end up with Paul Campbell and Alex Pop as possible Rule-V relievers.

I'm a Sandy Alderson fan ... from when he was with the A's ... and I met him at a Baseball Prospectus get together when he was with the Padres ... I'm rooting for him ... will be interesting to see if Paul Depodesta is one of his hires ...

Mets officially sold. The entire front office cleaned out.

Sandy Alderson is the man.

Stealing a comment from madfriars.com ...

I would love to take my little grandson to Petco to watch our "new and improved" Padres but I don't want it to be the last thing I do with him.

... real!

Ranking every World Series in MLB history

Good stuff!  Especially 4 minutes Kinograms news reel video from Game 7 1924: Senators over Giants in seven (Ranked #3 WS of all-time) ... of which the author says ...

I would consider saying this about as many as five games, but I think Game 7 of this World Series is really it: the best game in baseball history. By average leverage index, it's the fourth-best World Series game, and it's the only one of the top 10 that was a Game 7. For that matter, it's the only one of the top 10 that was even a clincher.

He's actually up to 28 homers, 102 RBI, and 104 runs scored. Baseball Reference always lags a bit on their Asian stats. Kim should generate substantial interest this off-season.
