I don't get it.
I don't like it.
I like the Ethier idea. I have always liked him as a player, and we all know the buddy-buddy connection with Pedroia, that can't hurt. It makes some sense with the glut of OF'ers in LA, but on the...
Alright then. You guys all gave me ***** when I said the Sox would sign John Smoltz, then when I said they'd sign Cody Ross, so on, so forth.
Paul Konerko in 1999 (AAA, AAA, MLB, MLB) - 21 HR, 94 RBI, 46/70 BB/K, .271 combine BA, .380 combine OBP - Looked over matched at MLB level.
Jerry Sands in 2012 - (AAA, MLB) - 26 HR, 108 RBI,...
I really hate that Sands is in this deal.
I'm sure I'm probably on an island on this one, but when Jerry Sands is a Paul Konerko clone we'll all regret this one.
Total class, Mr. Jeter. I'll resume hating you tomorrow.
I assume "worst" means most lop-sided?
If that's the case I'd vote for Pedro Martinez x2, first the DeShields deal, then the Pavano/Armas deal with Boston.
Of course there are the obvious ones...
Other than Boston it would have to be Colorado, IMO.
If they get advanced contributions from some of their young arms (Pomeranz, Friedrich, Nicasio) they could have a decent staff.
What a stupid statement.
This feels so wrong.
They made this deal to make every effort to sign David Price long term, IMO.
That, and, they have the ridiculous luxury of moving guys like Shields, and Davis, and simply replacing them with Alex...
You're correct. I wrote this before any signings had been made by the Sox.
With the Masterson/Cabrera deal I under estimated the perceived value of Cabrera from the Tribe's standpoint, or,...
The names that come to mind for me:
Bryce Harper - 40 HR minimum in 2013. He could win the NL MVP.
Jean Segura - I think Milwaukee will let him run, he's got good on-base instincts. I can see...
Law's a complete douche.
This is one of those: "What's not to like?" signings.
I don't have a dog in the fight here, but doesn't Worley AND Trevor May for Revere seem steep?
There are 3 teams that make sense for Ellsbury, IMO, because they all have some pitching they can afford to trade.
Atlanta - Teheran or Mike Minor +?
San Francisco - Vogelsong or Surkamp +?...
Did you just drop a "Not"?
I have never, not one time, seen you say something positive or non contrarian.
Also, your #swag thing is as queer as a football bat.
Seattle is such a logical fit. He played his college ball near there, and they're having difficulty getting any bats to sign there, even with the fences coming in.
Hultzen is nice, but wouldn't be...
I don't think that's fair. I like Victorino a lot as a ballplayer.
If he gives you .270/.340, hits 12-15 HR, is an exceptional base runner, and above average defender he's worth $12.5/year.
I can't help but wonder if this means a deal is in place for Ells..
