    I'm pretty sure Buehrle's dog was banned in Miami, too. I don't think he'll have to get rid of it if he didn't when he came here.

    Pitbulls are banned in Miami. He lived in Ft. Lauderdale.

    Pitbulls are banned in the entire province of Ontario, where Toronto is located. I don't know what his options are outside of his family staying behind with the dog.

    Your first and second paragraphs are contradictory. If you don't have faith in the owner to reinvest the money, then there's no reason to believe that things will improve the way you describe "over the next few seasons". It won't happen. The owner won't reinvest the money, as you say.

    I never stated a belief that things will improve. I don't trust this ownership group.

    It goes back to my original point where I said:

    Again, it goes back to when you said "over the next few seasons". Over the next few seasons, nothing will change. So we're still going to suck five years from now. But at least we get to pay wildly inflated food prices at the new ballpark!

    I'm excited for the season, Samson said we filled a lot of holes.

    I was saying if they reinvested, they could have found that value next few seasons.

    I think we got hung up somewhere down the line. I agree that we're heading towards a lot of hurt.

    Come on....you took the second quote and made it into something you know (I hope) I didn't mean.

    Obviously players get traded mid contract all the time. How often do they get traded in the second year of said contract in a package that gets back pennies on the dollar the year after a franchise builds a new stadium?

    My only point in all of this is that our front office has no intent on winning consistently ever. If a franchise like NY or Boston dumps a few contracts you know they will replace them sooner rather than later and remain competitive in the meantime. Our front office has been "building for the future" since the year 1998 with the sporadic good season here and there.

    We signed Juan Pierre. I like this move if he's going to be a 4th OF.

    Not a good sign if this is the first move after Samson says "We just filled a bunch of holes on the team with the players we got back. We got a left side of the infield. We're looking for a center fielder."

    I'm guessing this means Pierre is playing LF and Lomo to first.

    It looks as though if the season started today the lineup would be:

    C-Rob Brantly
    1B-Logan Morrison
    2B-Donovan Solano
    SS-Adeiny Hechavarria
    3B-Yunel Escobar
    LF-Juan Pierre
    CF-Justin Ruggiano
    RF-Giancarlo Stanton

    Can you say Super Bowl!

    Let's be brutally honest with ourselves....I don't think it matters if it starts tomorrow or fifteen years from now. So long as Loria is the owner we will only have a couple good seasons here and there.

    You have to cross the border and buy a key board from Mexico.
