That was a pretty good analogy Brodie. Lol.
since this is the last Offseason talking place i want to hear how people grade this offseason? most likely the remaining moves are going to be small and not make a big difference... either 1-10, A-F, i wanna hear em.
could make a thread for that. with a poll!
Bedard to Houston on a MLC
dang, i wish we would have offered that
We should have.
You have no idea how excited I am right now.
Tough to rate yet, it's incomplete to me.
I'll say C+ for now. Held all their stud prospects and took pressure off the young hitters. Gave up 2 years of John Jaso for free, didn't improve future. Need a pitcher and a catcher.
We need to get this done ASAPFOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mariners continue to talk to Felix Hernandez about a contract extension and are "at least weighing" a four-year, $100 million offer.
It's not known whether the Mariners have actually made such an offer, as one source described the two sides as "dancing" but not deeply engaged. Hernandez is under contract for two more years for a total of $39.5 million, so if the reported figure is accurate, the total outlay would be $139.5 million over six seasons. This would be in the neighborhood of recent contracts given to Zack Greinke ($147 million) and Cole Hamels ($144 million), so such an offer would at lest serve as a solid starting point in negotiations.
Hoep Montero only catches about 40-50 games at the most. Hope Zunino is up in the bigs by that time.
I think Montero catches 100 games (or about that proportion until Zunino comes up).
i hope they dont flirt with the idea of bay or ibanez winning an OF spot over guti, or even platooning with him or saunders... the thought of morse and ibanez/bay in the OF with montero catching is gross.
we need saunders, and guti to have a big year, not only for offensive purposes but to make sure we keep ibanez and bay from playing any D.
