Nightengale saying north of $120m.
During a "Not For Women Only" panel discussion, former Cubs pitcher Mike Bielecki asked several players to invent a baseball catch phrase for Viagra. Theriot's ad campaign: "Viagra -- I always play hard."

I guess maybe you could like the Giants a lot, but Arizona still sucks.

Doesn't look bad relative to pre vs post opt out cost. Still think they might need another bat.

I could see up to 5. Atlanta, Philly, Milwaukee, Cincy, and maybe Colorado, especially if they deal CarGo.
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.

Meanwhile the Padres are off somewhere laying in a field, staring at the clouds go by.

I know it's baseball and stuff happens but there's really only 8 realistic teams for the 5 playoff spots. Cubs, Pirates, Cardinals, Mets, Nats, Dodgers, Giants and D'Backs. Everyone else is bad to [expletive] terrible.

funny thing (to kyle's earlier point) is steamer has the reds and marlins ahead (albeit slightly) of the dbacks.

Yeah I guess if they get a lot of things to break right the Marlins could be in contention for a spot (Fernandez/Stanton health, Ozuna/Yellich take a leap, Dee Gordon's BABIP) and while right now I can see the Reds projections being okay, everyone expects them to sell off so they probably won't touch their projections as of today.

Yeah, I was going to say the Marlins have a shot, especially in that division. I don't think the Reds have a shot conversely, because of their division.

My friend is a Dodgers fan, and he is just miserable. Greinke to Arizona. Shark to the Giants. Cueto to the Giants. It's just sad.

DBacks are this year's Padres? Maybe?
