Well this is good and bad.

Good that the Rockies have Nolan locked up for the next two years.

Bad, because if the Rockies don't show they are fully committed to winning or don't have any success (postseason is required) then it will be ADIOS. (Probably to the Yankees)

This isn't good. The Cardinals are taking Carlos Martinez and Michael Wacha to arbitration over a few hundred thousand dollars.

Allen Craig got an NRI invitation to Red Sox camp. If his foot is finally healed and he gets his base back, that could be a smart move. He's 32.

Congrats to the HOF'ers.
Hoffman and Vlad should get in next year. Wouldn't shock me to see Bonds or Clemens get in next year either.

Posada is a borderline HOF player. Don't think he'll make it in even if he stayed on the ballot for the maximum amount of time.
I think Mussina and Pettite are far more likely to get in and they are on the fringe themselves.

This trade illustrates 1. the premium put on starting pitching and 2. the willingness for teams to pay an exorbitant price for it when the starter has a cheaper contract.

This is why I said for years before it started with the Yankees, you have to build from within, especially when it comes to starting pitching.
The game of baseball has changed, teams don't let their stud players hit FA at a prime age anymore, you see more long term extensions and buying out of arbitration years than ever before.

Teams pay through the nose for cost controlled players.

Bonds, Clemens and Manny should get in if you are putting pudge and Bagwell in.

Oscar Taveras, Jose Fernandez and Yordano Ventura have passed on since October 2014. All young, Latin and seemingly had their best baseball ahead of them.

Andy Marte's last MLB game was 8/6/14 w/ Arizona, against KC. Royals starting pitcher that day? Yordano Ventura. Both gone too soon. RIP.
