    I heard an interesting take on Ramirez and Sandoval signings by Cowherd who said part of the reason they chose to leave their teams is related to the amount of state income tax they'd have to pay to stay there.  Apparently Massachusetts is significantly lower.  I hadn't heard that be a big concern expressed by the players or their agents but Cowherd said it's a part that no one wants to talk about.  If that becomes a growing concern, Seattle looks like a prime place to play--no state income tax.

    Yea, but its SEATTLE...you walk out of the park and trip over all the homeless lying around. Wink . In all honesty, I've been there twice, loved the city and surrounding areas, but was really shocked at the number of homeless downtown .

    Not at all.  Making it illegal means the state has to buy all homeless people a home or pay their rent.
