Quick notes


Nationals. Bryce Harper will make his MLB debut  on Saturday vs. the Dodgers, Ryan Zimmerman goes to 15 day DL.

Tigers. Released 12 year veteran Brandon Inge on Friday morning.

Angles. Realesed Bobby Abreu to make room for Mike Trout

Mets. Scott Hariston hits for cycle in loss.



Tigers, Fielder.

The Detroit Tigers made a shocking move on Tuesday signing free agent slugger Prince Fielder for reportedly 9 years and 214 million dollars. Once again the mystery team comes out with the prize. Soon it will most likely be proven that mystery teams tend to win. Here’s some proof right now– take Cliff Lee for example. He hit the free agent market before the 2011 season; every one said it would be the Rangers or Yankees that would get Lee. Then out of nowhere come the Phillies and just like that they have him for 5 years.   Albert Pujols is another example. He was sure to go back to the Cardinals. I read the article saying that the Marlins took back their bid, but there was still a mystery team in the bidding. I went back to the home page and saw that Albert’s on the Angles for 10 years and the second largest contract in history! It just goes to show all GM’s not to reveal  their off season plans if they want to improve their team .


Who is the true M.V.P?

This year 23 players in the American League received votes for the M.V.P award.The  winner in the end was Tigers ace Justin Verlander. Many say he did not deserve the award  some think it should have been Jacoby Elsberry  or Curtis Granderson or Robinson Cano. But when you look at terms of over all value to a team you have to  go beyond the stats and ask what was his over all value?To me  it’s a mystery that 12 time all star and future hall of famer Derek Jeter has never won the award combining great statistics  with great leadership,which to me is real team value.
