The bidding for Marco Scutaro is getting out of control

Bidding for free agent shortstop Marco Scutaro is turning into a three team race between the Giants, Cardinals, and Yankees (of course). The contracts being offered for Scutaro's services have escalated to the point where he has a three year, $24 million offer on the table from the Giants (apparently). To me, this seems like a lot of money for a player's age 37 through...

Marco Scutaro and Irrational Exuberance

There are times when a player undergoes a dramatic transformation and essentially forces us to abandon everything we knew about that player previously. Cliff Lee. Jose Bautista. R.A. Dickey. It happens. Guys reinvent themselves, and as a result, their new contracts reflect the recent reality, not the average of all their Major League seasons. And sometimes, guys have monster...
