To be clear I was never really advocating for Betemit, he just kinda came up. He'd be a nice upgrade over Lind, sure, but Morse is the guy I'd be pushing for.
And all I ever said was don't be shocked if Lind is the DH next year and that AA needs to focus on upgrading other areas before worrying about Lind. Then everyone got all crazy haha...
Unlike Lind of course, who in your gut just feels like a quality DH. Even if those pesky things like facts say otherwise.
You did say Lind would be the DH, but then you started saying that virtually no other player would be an upgrade over him. That's why people are getting frustrated by your comments, because you're refusing to admit that vastly superior players would be upgrades to Lind, and you're just not willing to see that. Wilson Betemit isn't the only player who would be better than Lind, and just because he's played on multiple teams isn't a reason to say no to him.

I'll just pretend you didn't say Wilson Betemit...I don't need numbers to know that Wilson Betemit is nothing special. I've watched him, he's not athletic, his defence sucks and has no power. There's a reason he's bounced 7 organizations... I really don't see him as a better DH option than Lind.So you want an unathletic, no defence player with no power to DH? Seems like a good use of roster space... Maybe we can dump Davis or Bonifacio in order to make a spot for the useless Betemit. Suspiciously similar to your complaints about Lind no?
You guys are right, lets go get Wilson Betemit...
Tom Hanks likes the name 'Wilson'.
I think you can see where I'm going with this...
