The Uribear Is Back

Well, sounds like we can stand down on the impending threat of Michael Young, starting third baseman. According to Twitter – I’m at a holiday party, so cut me a break – its for two years, at an unknown dollar figure that will almost certainly make us die when we first hear it, then will slowly seem better over time as we think about the alternatives.

Am I the only one freaked out by the fact Kershaw hasn't signed a contract?

So steamer projects Hanley for a TSL of .279/.349/.463. Only 20 HR in 130 games. I feel like I'm obligated to disagree.

Holy crap. Didn't realize Longoria was signed through 2022. :o

Thrilled with this. The 3rd base market was trash, and even if he doesn't hit as well, his high caliber defense is enough if the rest of the lineup is healthy. 

Also, keeps Hanley happy at SS and the clubhouse chemistry goes without saying. If they upgrade going in to next year he's a decent bench option.

@capnsparrow Looks like the one on the right is having a smell.

Hi. Cleaning off my car is going to suck.

When healthy and happy, Hanley is a Mike Trout level hitter. That projection is inclusive of noise from being in Loria Hell

@Weston Taylor he's a mystery. last year was outrageous and he was broken. this doesn't seem out of the question.

@Nineteen84 it's the best we could have hoped for and he can be moved to the bench in a year if someone else shows up. we like urbie.

@Disgruntled Goat @DBrim I walked passed the town Christmas tree last night on my way back from the parking spot and it was amazingly pretty, too. It was snowing too hard for me to stop and a picture, though.

@DBrim meanwhile, we are headed to 80 degrees today. already feels much warmer than the supposed 50 something here on the back patio.

I parked next to a good (for here) Mexican restaurant so at least I'll get a burrito out of it.

Apparently it rained and flash froze. Lots of scraping to be done. Mostly passed, but I don't think the parking ban is over quite yet.

Garage was full, unfortunately.
