The Astros signed Brad Ausmus to a one year deal. Ausmus has always been known for his defense, but this time I think this signing might be for him to be a mentor to J. R.

I don't see why he thinks someone will pay him $350 million. The GMs recently took a blind poll and they almost all said that they would never give A-Rod 350 million dollars. He is not a reincarnation of Babe Ruth. He is not God. He is a great player, but any GM who is willing to give up that much cash is silly.

Usual Yankee BS, somewhere along the line there was a falling out with the Yankee's (Cashman/Steinbrenner) and Bernie in '05/'06. Not my point. Here is my point. Before YS is torn down, I, like many believe a Bernie Williams Day
After thinking long and hard about this entire era, I have come to the conclusion that I'm sure many of you already have.
I'm done with the steroids talk. I'm done bashing Bonds, I'm done bashing Clemens, and I'm not about to start bashing Rodriguez.
Put them all in. The only person associated with this era that needs to be kept out of the Hall of Fame is Bud Selig.
Bonds owns the home run record, and he is one of the five best players of all-time, though
