    I just dont even see him as a platoon bat. If he cant play OF, theres no one for him to platoon with.

    I am not really happy with:

    Ackley
    Seager
    Montero
    Morales
    Jaso/Smoak
    Saunders
    Wells/Ibanez
    Guti
    Ryan

    I like the Wells platoon idea, but not with someone who is gonna put up a .720 OPS

    I think Ibaņez might hit better than people give him credit for but only vs. right handers.

    He's just a redundant acquisition.

    Raul Ibanez is 40 years old (40.5 to be precise).

    I think JZ just likes Werewolves of London.
    Rauuuuuuuul!

    Idk man. .223 wOBA, 32 wRC+ on the road. I dont know how he hit against lefties on the road, but it probably wasnt very good considering he only hit .343 wOBA, 115 wRC+ against them overall
    I dont see him doing much of anything. Jaso is a better version of him.

    Do we think he can play OF? Cause otherwise he just takes ABs away from Jaso and Montero, and thats not gonna fly.

    I agree. I just don't think he'll be as bad as everyone else. I could see a.750-.800 OPS vs RH.

    Ibanez (2012) = Griffey (2009)

    Hoefully something still in his bat but at the very least, is a veteran presence on the bench.

    Thats fine, but I get the feeling he isnt going to be on the bench as much as he should.

    He will be the platoon LF, and thats weak.

    Just grow some balls and trade for Ethier. Give em Franklin and Maurer for Ethier, Capuano and $20-25M. Id pay Ethier $12-13M a year to crush righties like he does.

    I like 1 through 6, but I would like to see a power bat in there somewhere. Another one that is.

    I don't mind Raul as a pinch hitter, spot dh and vet presence but I have a feeling FO is looking at the fact it wasn't that long ago Raul put up b2b 100rbi seasons as a mariner, he has aged well and even going off last years number he is one of our best hitters.

    If raul was going to be a 25th man type guy as he should that signing usually happens days b4 ST. I'm just not a fan, I hope I'm proven wrong but I think they are showing their conservative colors and 2 afraid to trade one of our specs(which may prove smart) for an OFer or spend the $ for swish and I think Raul sees a good amount of action in dh/ OF to get his bat to play.

    Hopefully a domino affect happens that shifts Raul to a minimum role but right now it looks like he will be counted on for more that that and it's pretty uncomfortable for me.

    I love messing with JAC. He gets so angry, like me.

    He contradicted the hell out of himself in his Ibanez article, and I just ask for some clarification and call him out a little, and he gets defensive.
