    I never questioned his ceiling or athleticism. But you are acting as though he is completely proven and he isn't.

    I said I would do Paxton and Franklin, but anymore could turn out to be an overpay.
    You have no idea how excited I am right now.

    He hits 450 foot bombs all over the country. You see how Billy Butler is getting better and really blossoming at age 26-27? Upton just turned 25. If he follows the same common development path we'll be looking at a juggernaut in a year.

    Did Butler have .320 wOBA, 90 wRC+ on the road?

    I want completely proven guys. I heard similar things about how great Montero and Smoak were supposed to be. We know how one of those turned out.

    Well we're probably not going to get "completely proven" players. So I guess we're just going to have to stand pat and watch trades and free agent signings happen because we're too picky.

    Butler? Swisher? Hamilton? Did they all die?

    It's not about being picky. It's about being smart and not getting to desperate that we make a dumb move.

    I feel like Swish and Hamilton get overpaid. GMZ won't get desperate.

    You say this but when i mentioned adding Montero in a deal for a proven bat in Stanton you don't want to do it.

    I do think Montero being the next Martinez was a little much that is way to high expectations for a guy.

    We're talking about players being acquired via trade. We could sign one of then AND trade for another bat.

    What? I was talking about Smoak. I said we know how one turned out, and that one is Smoak.

    We don't actually KNOW how Smoak will turn out either.

    He could be a Nelson Cruz and be a late bloomer.

    Agreed ^

    He's 25. Just like J-Up. Obviously he has struggled more but he's young.
