Worst decision he's ever made. What a genius he is, but better yet, what a genius his agent is if he helped soriano make that decision. Soriano shouldn't give that guy any of the commission he probably says he deserves haha
Agree, those are pretty awful signings. Gomes is a platoon player with no glove, Napoli is a declining bat with no glove at all, and Dempster is likely to get shelled pitching to AL East lineups. Victorino may be OK, but hard to imagine him doing better than Cody Ross did for them last year.
That's his average the past 3 seasons. His career averages have no meaning considering he isn't nearly as good as he was.
To put that in perspective. 41 players had a higher OPS than Tex's OPS over the last 3 years. That's laughable.
Also, you're wrong. From 04-08 (5 seasons) he hit 177 HR's. In the 4 years in NY, he has hit 135 HR's. A difference of 42 HR's. He's never hit 40+ as a Yankee so, its highly doubtful that he does that. Not that, this random HR number means much.
Outside of his stellar 2009 year, Tex has been a solid 1B the other 3 seasons. Not worth his AAV of 22.5M at all. He's getting paid elite money to be above average which is ridiculous. His market value was 'inflated' in 2008 because he was an elite player. He gave us one elite season and has fallen off hard over the other 3.
Well, I am trying to support the guy...we are stuck with him and need him to be healthy....He plays hard and maybe he will hit some mistake pitch homeruns....
