People thought the Giants dodged a bullet when Lincecum turned down a $100 million offer 2 years ago.
The Giants are making sure to take the bullet, one way or another.
edit: wrong thread
If more money means a better left fielder, I'm all for it.
Perfect excuse not to sign one.
I love Lincecum, but I don't love him enough to see the Giants hand him 8-figure annual salary.
With Zito off the books, spend money like a drunken sailor......
The Dodgers fail so epic that, it's almost............. Dodgers-esque. :laugh:
No worry though. Are there any more 30+ year old, injured, over-the-hill, used-to-be-stars that they can throw their...
Does that ~ $40 million number include the $7 million that will be paid to Zito to make him leave?
Yes, the MVP must sacrifice his body to make sure that we win 70 games!
This requires thinking about the future, which is a novel concept to this management.
Zito's contract is finally up. I've been waiting for that day for the past 6 years.
2 hits, no walk, and 11 K's in 7 IPs by Crick yesterday. :clap:
In 2010, Belt batted .383 in SJ, with 10 HRs in 268 ABs. OBP was .492. OPS was 1.121.
in 2008, Sandoval batted .359 in SJ, with 12 HRs in 273 ABs. OBP was .412. OPS was 1.009.
So yeah, don't...
Unlikely he'll be traded. I can see other teams put blocking claim on him to prevent a trade from happening.
Just about everyone is placed on waivers.
"We'd like to inquire about Buster Posey. What would you like in return?"
"Your entire roster and the whole farm system, with all of their salaries...
There is under-performing and then there is non-performing.
Crick needs to get to AA. No one can touch him in San Jose so he won't learn much there.
I guess it's official. Dodgers clinched World Series.
Yeah, I don't really mind keeping Lopez. He wouldn't get us much in return anyway. A C+ prospect is worthless. I mean, goddammit our farm is filled with C+ guys! We don't need more marginal...
Definitely excited about Crick. He is the biggest positive of the 2013 season (now please cut down those damn walks).
Should I be excited? Or is that Todd Linden in the making?
It's good. We need inning eaters, so we won't have to run Cain and Bumgarner to the ground in a meaningless season.
We baseball people know productivity is best measured by the sound coming off a bat.
