ervin santana suspended 80 games for ped failure (stanozolol) #twins

Wow, old school PEDs. I don't know anyone in pro sports still using those.

Didn't see it mentioned anywhere else on the site: The Indians locked up Kluber for 5/$32.5 with two option years. Other than Kluber's age at signing, which is a big factor, it is reminiscent of Sale's contract. Kluber will turn 29 this week, whereas Sale was what, 23 when he signed his?

It's not that bad for the Twins. They save over $6 million and it's not like they had any chance to compete this year anyway.

You make a good point, but I think in general you'd like guys on 4-year deals not to get busted for steroids before they've played a game for you.

They also signed Carrasco long term. It doesn't even feel like news anymore when teams lock up players for their first 1 or 2 FA years, it's normal operating procedure.

Well that seems like a useless statistic with little predictive value.

So you are saying the Tigers will set a precedent this season?

If Rondon and Soria aren't healthy (they say Soria's looked pretty good SO FAR), they might be forced into making an early move.

 

Obviously, the offseason and then spring training didn't go well for the Nathan-Tigers' fans relationship.

As expected, Cleveland, KC and Detroit look good. Minnie and the Sox? ... Uh, we'll see.

5 walks and 11 K's...incredible pitch count for that stage in the game.

 

Homers for CLE from Jose Ramirez and some catcher I've never even heard of backing up Gomes.

Career journeyman Jerry Sands is getting a standing ovation in CLE....two big hits including a clutch gapper to come back and take the lead from David Price. Tom Hamilton going nuts.
