Jason Parks said that if you were to remove the Twins top 10 prospects, their minor league system would still be better than the Angels.
The Angels are a complete mess right now. They need pitching and they traded one of the few tr...

They also have a 2nd baseman rated as the best prospect in their organization named [link=(http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=22200)]Rougned Odor[/link]. He is supposed to be quite good, but still at least a year away. The Rangers are pretty set in the infield for awhile.

No reason to. Unless the Rangers are guaranteed Stanton for Profar there is no reason to spend that much money on a 31 year old 2nd basemen....

I say it was sudden and great because he had never hit below .312 before and he had really avoided any serious injury. Then bam, he hits .299 and then he hits .285 the next year and then he is pretty much shut down with almost a third of the season left the next year after that.
I still think he...
| More Sports Board|| re: Miguel Cabrera does it again - DrVinnyBoombatz on 8/18/13 at 1:03 pm|
Definitely. I don't think Cabrera is going to have a sudden decline like Pujols.
I still think Pujols puts up decent numbers as an everyday DH in his future, but probably not enough to hold of Cabrera....
| More Sports Board|| re: Miguel Cabrera does it again - DrVinnyBoombatz on 8/18/13 at 12:54 pm|
Their career numbers are incredibly close. Only difference being that Pujols has 2-3 years on Cabrera.
Pujols - .321/.410/.599 with 492 HRs.
Cabrera - .321/.399/.570 with 360 HRs.
We will have to see how Cabrera's career ends, but it's safe to say that these guys are 1A and 1B as the great...

Pretty much all of this damage probably happened at once to his knee. If you dislocate your knee, you have to tear something.
Just from doing a little googling, this sounds like the worst knee injury you can get.

Salt Lake doesn't have too many good courses, but there are a ton within 30 minutes.
Soldier Hollow in Midway is nice. About 30 minutes from SLC.
If you drive to Park City, they have Promontory, a course designed by Pete Dye. Mountain Dell course on the way to Park City is also fairly nice.
