#52644 All out this offseason?

1. Zastrzny can't be traded until 1 year after being drafted so he can't be traded. 2 Baez will not be up next season and Almora won't be up until late 2015 and probably Bryant as well. 3 where is Olt?

I would love for them to get them both, but highly unlikely. Cano will demand a long term contract which looks to be in bad favor of teams like the Angels. Ellsbury will demand top dollar with boras as his agent, although he is more likely than cano.

I played some college ball as a pitcher and all I really know for the "hitch" can be anything in your delivery, arm angle, release point, etc. My college coach played in the bigs as a catcher and knew alot about these things, as far as he noticed that my index finger sticking out of my glove was raised when I threw a curveball and firmly pressed against my glove when throwing a fastball. I had no idea I was doing it either. Some pitchers also slow their arm down when throwing a change up, so hitters can pick up on these little things as the game goes on. And remember, these are MLB hitters who will notice alot, so even little things that college pitchers picked up on me, I'm sure it's 10X more obvious to them.

#50675 Texas trade package I'm OK with

I want Victor Payano as a throw in. 6'6" lefty that can touch 98 and in A ball. This could be a nice high upside throw in in a Garza deal.
