Giancarlo Stanton Talks Reach $320 Million

Giancarlo Stanton is quite the player.

Dude just hits bombs at will. He’s only 25 and has got years ahead of him to continue doing the same. The Marlins want to keep him. He’s the only guy I can name off the top of my head on the Marlins. Hell, I bet he’s the only guy Marlins fans (all 10 of them) can name off the top of their collective heads too.

That’s why talks for keeping him have reached the (que loud voice over voice) THE $320 MILLION DOLLAR RANGE (echo).

S’lotta money.

Clayton Manning – Kershaw Comes Up Short Again in Postseason

There’s really no other way to say it. Clayton Kershaw can’t do diddly poo in the playoffs. Guy is practically un-hittable in the regular season, but when it’s October and the season is on the line, he can’t get it done.

Something with the 7th innings are his kryptonite this year.Last night it was the 3 run homer he gave up to Matt Adams that gave the Cards a 1 run lead.

In the first game, he was charged for 8 runs in the 7th as the Cardinals went on to win another 1 run game.

Kershaw is now 1-4 in the post season with 4 straight losses.

Jon Lester On the Market

Boston Globe – The Red Sox, a major league source said Monday, have been informed what kind of contract lefthander Jon Lester is seeking and that has led to the team putting its ace on the trade market.That could be an indication the team has little willingness to sign Lester despite public comments suggesting otherwise. Lester is seeking what was described as a “competitive offer consistent with the market” but nothing that would be considered precedent-setting. The Red Sox made Lester a low-ball offer of four years and $70 million in spring training that was swiftly rejected. The sides since have said negotiations were tabled until after the season.

Well done ownership. You took the ace of the staff and basically drove him out of town with lowball offers. This guy should have been locked up. Look what the Bruins did this past year with Tuukka and Bergy, two of the most important Bruins. They got them for 8 years. Sox were giving out huge contracts to Carl Crawford a few years ago to do nothing and now they have the best pitcher and they somehow can’t afford to spend the money?

His next start is Wednesday against the Blue Jays. I hope it’s not his last in a Sox uniform.
