    That was my point from the outset. Freeman may be the best bat in the bunch, but he's looking for a pay day and I'm not certain Hal deems that a high enough priority to justify the cost. Imo SS is a...

    No it ain't that deep. As I said at the outset, in my original reply to you : Does this team, as currently constructed, need more power? You are correct, it ain't that deep. Olson would certainly...

    Risk / reward. Do you take the " surer" thing and go with the resume' or gamble on a young gun? Decisions, decisions. I'm inclined to gamble on Gil and save the dough to spend elsewhere. Although...

    What was the point Spliff? I quote " Olson would put up crazy power numbers at Yankee Stadium."

    I agree. At the right price Olson would be a very good fit, although I wouldn't want to go too long. That in my mind is the rub. The price is too high. I also agree Rizzo didn't help his cause in a...

    It will come down to $$$. Rizzo is getting older and cost could be an issue, I doubt he's looking for a raise from his $16M. Olson is due $12M and would cost Yankees Peraza, Gil, Vasquez according to...
