  1. The Angels, Royals, Indians, Pirates(maybe a stretch to be called a contender), Giants, Braves, Rangers, Blue Jays, Brewers and Padres ought to be on the phone with JV. In 2011 his last 19 starts were great

  2. If I were the Braves, Indians, or Royals I would definitely pick up the phone. I think the Blue Jays are happy with their rotation

  3. Re Seton Hall: LHP Kevin Morton, who made the big leagues briefly with the Red Sox, was also on that team IIRC.

  7. I realize it’s a fairly common name in baseball circles, but… 4 guys named Perez in the 25-and-under top 10? Wow.

  8. not if you go by “2012 baseball age”, which it looks like the chart is. (ruf has also been 26 since late july, for example)

  9. Padres had a much better record in the second half than the braves did and have a sneaky talented lineup esp when Grandal returns. In the 25 and under in a Latin league

  10. Fact:

    Braves 2nd half: 48-29
    Padres 2nd half: 42-33

  11. The photo with the Crystalize effect applied to it makes this column worth fwding to people who aren’t even baseball fans.

  12. i was assuming that a repeat in 2013 was understood ;)

  13. So, if the Padres match their torrid pace of the last half of last season, they will win 84 games this season–a cinch to make the playoffs.

  14. “And here’s his photograph with the Crystalize effect applied to it:” -LOL

  15. Not to mention they (the Padres) are at best the 4th best team in their own division

  16. Daily Notes. Javy Vasquez would consider joining a contender.. Well, Duh.. If anybody who reads or writes here, wouldn’t YOU also consider joining a contending team? Even if it was just to say “I was on the roster” ? –OR– take it the other way in this conversation.

    Team President: Javy, we are the vegas odds on winner of the world series and we need a pitcher to come in and help out. Would you like to join our team for the 2013 season?
    Javy: I really appreciate the offer, but I am holding out for an offer from the Marlins, or maybe the Astros. I feel that I am better for a “rebuilding/losing” team.

    yeah, I can see that scenario playing out soooo easily !! (there is jus a wee bit of sarcasm there)

  17. :)

  18. Historically, that hasn’t always mattered in that particular division.

  19. What he should do i sign with a team like the Astros or Marlins with an agreement that he would be traded mid-year to a contender. He would have a much better chance of making the playoffs that way.

  20. In a semi-related note, I would also consider joining a contender.

  21. I’m pretty sure no contract would include a clause like that. It’s hard to define “contender” in these days of two wild cards (would probably include about 25 teams) and besides none of them may want him, and you couldn’t force them to take him. Otherwise the Halos may want to insert a similar clause into Vernon Wells’ contract. :)
