    Here's another report just about the draft.... BluesWhat an absolute haul for St. Louis. The Blues got a great young two-way center in Robert Thomas with the No. 20 overall pick, which was solid...

    WINNER: St. Louis BluesThe Blues wanted Jori Lehtera and his two years at $4.7 million annually the heck off their cap. Vegas didn’t take him. So they went the trade route, and pulled off a coup:...

    I just don't see Kovalchuk being an option. He was a lunatic for walking away from that contract he got from the Devils though. I guess he got paid crazy money in the KHL... but now the ruble has...

    LOL... Brebbia comes in with the bases loaded and hits two batters. That reminds me... if you haven't read the Ankiel book The Phenomenon... I highly recommend it.

    I also dont' get the love for Perron.-2 on the season +/-. Doesn't really shine offensively or defensively in my opinion. He was a solid player, but was never going to be a huge difference maker.

    Schenn plus Kostin and Thomas is MUCH MUCH MUCH improved over last year's. Anyone who says otherwise is a dummie. Plus we added a much needed player and actually lowered our total cap at the...

    The guy is 30 years old, and just hit 41 hr's last year. Sure, I would be happy to take a flier on him!

    Losing Perron's 1 year contract isn't bad. We weren't going to give him an extension, and he'll get overpaid next summer. This doesn't hurt us that much. Might motivate the Blues to sign someone.

    Yes we would be very amazed by their versatility. However, when you take risks by building a team in this way... you get credit for the successes and blamed for the failures. This team was...

    I greatly dislike the way they have built this team. It feels like a hodge podge of players playing out of position. Ex: Carpenter isn't a true 1B in my opinion, Diaz isn't good enough...

    Grichuk has not improved as a hitter over the past 4 years... in fact he has gotten progressively worse. He might be done for at this point. Bader could easily join the big club soon. Or... bring...

    The fact that we have the best rotation in baseball, and are a sub .500 team should mean the manager, hitting coach, and whoever is in charge of fielding.... should ALL be worried about their jobs. ...

    The hitting, fielding, bullpen and managing sucks... that's for sure. Starters have been great this year. We should be 15 games over .500 with just average stats the other way.

    He'll be over 700. He has fallen off, but the Angels have to pay him regardless. If they aren't going to win... they'll be trying to jack his AB's up so that he can hit milestones.
