Cabrera for MVP

Zach sent something over about Miguel Cabrera’s huge contract. If anything, I feel like we’re underpaying the guy: this is like getting Kobe Bryant or Kevin Garnett at age 24.

Jayson Stark nods in agreement.

    i’m open to better comparisons than kobe/kg… i was just trying to suggest how much the guy has accomplished at such a young age.

    also, how bout the spring training that willis is having? can we still trade for santana?

    i know you mentioned this cover before but Jason Whitlock has an interesting column on the issue.

    Despite the fact that Jemele Hill is from Detroit and attended MSU, and I believe worked for The State News, I think Jason Whitlock wrote a better column on this Vogue Cover.

    Race is a really really confusing issue.

    its a good deal if he stays healthy (always a risk), is continually productive, and isnt on steroids. thats my view at least. huge contract always make me skeptical, seems like a lot of people slide after a huge deal, but maybe that happens in bball where people like erik dampier are grossly overpaid.

    what has dontrell done in spring training? i pay no attention to preseasn. i think hes gonna be good still. it sounds like he was pretty bad.

    any news on bonderman? i need some bondo talk.

    happens in bball more*

    today willis gave up 7 runs in 3 inning. he’s 1-3 with an 8 plus ERA.

  7. sloan Says:

    bondo’s been working on his change-up, which would be a nice addition.

    the wall street journal had a cool article i should have posted that tried to figure out why bondo always blows ass in the first inning before cooling out later on:

  8. sloan Says:

    uhhh, probably could have been a little more diplomatic than saying he “blows ass.”

    change that to: “…tried to figure out why bondo has tended to struggle…”
