I can't believe the Tigers just paid 200+ million to move their current overweight and out of shape first baseman back to third, so they can insert a new overweight and out of shape player at first base.

Is Miguel Cabrera's contract and/or drinking problem so big that he is untradeable?

Hope the Tigers' pitchers and catchers spend extra time in Florida working on bunt defense.

The American League has this strange rule where your pitcher doesn't have to bat.  You can use a hitter that doesn't play in the field to bat in the pitcher's spot.  I'm not sure what the name of this position is, or if it's even going to last long term, but it sounds like Cabrera might be able to handle such a job.

Brandon Inge plays first and has an eating disorder? Damn. My fantasy team is shot to aMm now.

Awesome.

Two AL teams have tied themselves up with long-term contracts that will keep them paying and paying long after the talent's gone.

Sweet.

LA and Detroit will have their own A-Rod deals.
