steamingpile: The bigger question is how much is the cap on salaries? They are owned by a corporation who are notorious for chopping salaries of teams, the braves come to mind when time warner bout turner, now with liberty media being the same way we dont know what will happen and I think a couple of pitchers are up for arbitration along with Gio's salary starting to vest up to the 12-15 million range.


Eh. The Lerners are billionaires. They're pretty famously cheap (they wouldn't even spring for extended metro service for the playoffs this year), but if they have all of these good players, and they were willing to spend $20 mill on Fielder... You would have to think they they'd break it up and do what they have to to keep this team together. Only time will tell, but I have to think they're gonna do what it takes. I sure hope they do.

As for Gio - they already extended him to guaranteed money before the season (Link... now they have a bunch of other guys to take care of.

Martonio: Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: Not to mention the Caps.

Are you freaking high? The Human Ego known as Ovechkin will throw some sort of hissy fit and want out (hopefully to the KHL). They can't keep a decent head coach behind the bench, and the ones with somewhat succeed would rather go back and to the OHL. And I haven't even started talking about their crappy D men or their goalie graveyard.

The Caps will be fighting for the #1 draft pick within the next five years, guaranteed. 

/I miss the NHL


Yeah, and they still sell out home games. Crazy, I know.

/You're right tho, easy come easy go

Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: Triumph: Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: We got RGIII, and a real GM.

The Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Snyder

/That's your local media's take chief.

What part of "we got a real GM" don't you understand? Since Bruce Allen took over, little Danny's personnel butfarkery hasn't taken place. You're stuck in the Vinny Ceratto era, bro. That McNabb "deal" your link talks about ignores the fact that it was voidable, for reasonable money, after 1 year if the team didn't want McNabb back. Um, he sucked, and it didn't kill us to get rid of him. I'm sorry we gave up that 1 second round pick, but that's life. I"m sure you'll throw out the RGIII trade as evidence that nothing has changed, but guess what: that worked, and it was worth it.

That's evidence that adults, specifically GM Bruce Allen, are in charge and making the decisions. Which exactly what the "article" claims to see no evidence of. Look: Danny being Danny sucks. But it looks to everybody with a head on their shoulders that those days are over, and we're done making cap-killing deals. Soooo.... what was your point again? Oh yeah. You don't have one.


//And you're not my bro.


You're exactly the kind of idiot us sane DC area sports fans are embarrassed to be associated with.

Yeah that was my point, they have committed a shiatload of money to that guy and Im not sold on him yet but you also cant let him get away either, I remember Dontrell getting a huge deal then shiatting the bed a few years later.

And being a billionaire means nothing, the team is owned by the corporation according to the few sites I saw, being owned by a company is an entirely different beast than being own by a sole owner with no one to answer to at the end.

I LEARNED IT FROM YOU, DAD!!!!

Dontrelle had that crazy motion, which was basically unrepeatable over the long run. So many moving parts made him prone to losing his release point. Gio may have other problems technique-wise that I'm not aware of, but that was a big one off the bat the lots of people saw coming w/Dontrelle.
