Edgar Olmos? He was great in Battlestar Galactica.

I enjoyed the Brendan Ryan era much more than both the Aaron Miles and Jose Macais eras.

Unfortunately his best work was 25 years ago in Miami.

Brendan Ryan was never going to be on the active roster, so it has as much bearing on Baez as releasing Olmos did earlier.

That was true before they released Ryan.

There's also Mendy, so to speak, as well as an endless sea of Brendan Ryans and Jonathan Harerras. I doubt they're agressively shopping Javy at this point, but if he can bring back something in the form of a Ross or Carrasco, they're not going to hold back because they need him as a backup.

Cardinals just signed a closer from Korea named Oh Seung-hwan. He's nicknamed the Final Boss and his fastball is called the Stone Fastball.

Sorry to ruin your guys season.

Yes. Both (or any) fan bases have their share of idiots and racists. Only one refers to themselves as the BFIB. What's your point?

Cubs sign C Tim Fedorowicz and IF Kris Negron.
Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.
