What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
What do you guys think??
I'm surprised Nolan gave him that money
I'm happy if it's true. Also, Nolan isn't giving him that money. JD is giving him that money. And Greenberg. Nolan is a small piece of the puzzle on this kind of deal.
This seems like a much better way to spend money than $8m to Vlad.
The deal has not yet been agreed upon. Words mean things.
I still don't believe this is much more than Boras running up the price tag, but the longer this has gone on, the more I believe it might be true.
I hope Rangers sign Beltre and Vlad then move Michael Young to 1B with Beltre at 3rd and Vlad at DH. Mitch Mooreland would move down to AAA which would help his development more unlike Rangers did with Chris Davis pitchers got use to him then we all saw what happend there.
Can you imagine a lineup similar to this one: Andrus, MY, Cruz, Hamilton, Beltre, Vlad, Kinsler, Murph, Torrealba !?!?
When TR Sullivan reports it, then I'll believe it. He's the one guy that acts the most like a sports journalist and less like a gossip columnist in these types of situations.
Me thinks the lady doth protest too much
while i like Beltre and figure he's probably worth 5/75 with an option, and would probably perform well for the first 2-3 years of the contract, i have a nagging feeling that the FO would be trying to force a square peg in a round hole if they signed him. MY at 1B/DH just doesn't give me a warm fuzzy, and they can't trade him without subsidizing his contract to whoever picks him up. Beltre just doesn't fit here as long as MY is around.
Does that include yourself, Michael? Or are you the smartest, brightest one? Why don't you give your take on the situation instead of generalize everyone to be idiots.
I hope this is just a dirty rumor Beltre is way over rated & I really don't thinknhe would fit on this team with whole not wanting to be touched on the head that kind of guy just don't fit on the rangers team IMO.
So the fact that he doesn't like his head to be touched out weighs 25+ homers and plus plus defense?
Oh sh*t. Beltre is comin' to town.
Get ready for RANGERS 2 WORLD SERIES PART DEUX :ELECTRIC BOOGALOO
@ fuller tron I just don't like the guy & don't think he is a fit & he really only seems to do well in contract years I think he is not worth the money & is one of the most over rated players in baseball besides Zach Greinke.
How could anyone argue this would not improve the team? The money may be a little much, but according to all the stat geeks it costs more to get wins the better a team you are, and this sounds like a pretty solid 4-5 WAR player for 15-16 a year. I will take it, its not my money and I know my tickets will not be getting cheaper.And it has been said a million times, but I'll say it anyway. You can keep bitching about the pitching, but this staff is at least as good as what we had going into last year, and we did not do to bad. No need to force anything right now, just wait till some crap team (like Seattle or the Cubs) wants to make a deal in June or July and let JD who is obviously better at this then any of us do his thing.
Some little babies just need so much attention, don't they? Oh everyone please notice me - look - I can say shocking and offensive things - if you'll just pay attention to me!
I would prefer the Rangers offer Josh Hamiton the 5 years/ $75 million.
One guy who would love Beltre is Wash, he is all about that infield defense.
Who cares about the head thing! Its just a weird pet peeve.
Michael Young isn't taking this signing well.
I just think that every ranger fan will rue the day that beltre was signed if all of this is true I still really don't want to believe it. The guy seems like he is a guy that plays well only when he is due a contract. Also do you really want to sign this guy to a 6 year deal when he is already 31 years old I wouldn't do that deal for that much money it is crazy.
The stroy TR Sullivan has is the best news I have heard all day on this Beltre deal he says no deal is close bur there is some intrest. I really think the rangers are just running up the price on the Angels that is my thought & hope anyway. To me Young is too important to Jack with espically after you just had the best season in team history !
