I wasn't a fan of Zimmerman, either. And I liked Kennedy as a stealth candidate on a short deal for him to improve his results and re-enter FA.

I wouldn't go near 5/$70 for him, though.

Re: New Board Software Thread

fwiw, I've tried a number of things to fix the issue. I'm probably going to have to reinstall the entire board software and then reapply all the mods. Hopefully I'll have more time this weekend, but it has been a really busy start to the year.

Yeah, I like this deal a lot for the Jays. And Storen gets out of DC finally. Good for both of them. Meanwhile the Nats now get a full season of Papelbon and Harper together.

Maybe it'll drive Bryce to demand a trade.
