Hunter Pence appears to have resigned with the Giants, 5 for 90. Seems to be about what he would of gotten on open market. SF might have to overpay a bit (any CA team for that matter) because of cost of living and taxes, state taxes for wealthy are like 13% thats almost $11 Million right there he wouldnt of had to pay if he had signed in a 0% state tax location like Texas.

Cost of living also ridiculously high in Bay Area. People would be blown away at prices there.

Fantasy Impact doesnt seem to be much of anything, he had one of his best years in whats perceived as a non hitters park, though for right handed pull hitters its not as bad as for lefties or righties who drive the ball the other way.

Question for discussion. Where will Grant Balfour end up and does he have another year's worth of closer in his tank?

Well, I think we can scratch the Mets out of the Choo sweepstakes. If Pence is getting 5/90 they won't come close. From a fantasy perspective that's probably good because we've seen how good he can be atop a quality lineup which the Mets are not.

Two interesting pitchers I dont see on here, might of missed em, but type of guys right team, right park I think could get some value with are Josh Johnson and Phil Hughes, get these guys into some spacious park West coast like ATT, Petco, Safeco, Oakland I think they might be worth a gamble.

I agree on Johnson. I feel if he goes to SD or some place in the NL with a good pitching coach, he could turn it around.

Do you guys think Braves keep McCann? He had a decent year. Gattis has a good bat, but really not that good of a defensive catcher.

But boy is life great! :lol:

Hoping the indians can get a big bat for the corner outfield. Nelson Cruz would be so good. Also another pitcher. I also cant believe im saying this but, hopefully they resign Ubaldo hes been finding his grove as of late. If they do it better be for a reasonable price.

I expect the Phillies will retain Ruiz for a couple more seasons as they prepare Tommy Joseph. Sebastien Valle could have some sort of role, but I don't think they're ready to turn over the keys to a rookie, and Ruiz is still pretty popular around here, even after the suspension.

Everything I've seen about 2B in Baltimore suggests Jon Schoop gets first crack. I could see them signing a vet to provide some cover against tougher RHP.

Out of Texas, off the juice and not stealing much any more. Not going to be close to the fantasy player he was prior to this year. Really just had a couple of pretty good years (for an AL ony league)
