What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
ESPN reports Webb had rotator cuff surgery earlier this month, and hopes to pitch next year. What do you think the odds of him pitching next year are? If so, will he be any good? And would you want him to pitch for us?
I'm not sure what to think. But with all this talk about the rotation next year, however preemptive it may be, it's worth at least discussing the Cy Young winner we considered worthy of taking a chance on this year.
I'll leave it to people who know better than me whether the Rangers should take the risk again, but I sure hope he can make a comeback somewhere.
Sure. But not for the money we paid him this year. It's a very low risk proposition.
I'll give him a guaranteed $500,000 minor league deal with an invite to spring training with $500,000 incentives that kick in at 50, 100, and 150 IP.
Once bitten, twice shy. I, for one, think the guy is toast.
I know this isn't part of this thread but I had an interesting question regarding next year and the pitching staff. Should the Rangers go out an try to aquire Weaver in the off season? He will be a free agent and yes he will cost more but isn't he more of a known commodity or a given more than CJ? I love CJ and would love to keep him here for the long term. However, if you have a chance to go after someone like Weaver who is only in his late 20's, more of a known commodity than CJ or Darvish, and can be the solution to your TORP problem don't you owe it to yourself to go after that guy? Let's say that he does re-sign with the Angels next year. Doesn't that mean they have to let go of Santana or Haren or both after next season? If so, can we wait and sort of tread water with pitching until one of those pitchers becomes available? What are yall's thoughts on this?
Team option on Weaver next yr that LAA is expected to exercise.
Web did not want a 2 year contract the Rangers were offering. (tried to use us as a "jumping board", to land back to the riches of MLB)So JD and crew compromised and gave him a very nice "try out" for 2-3 million.This time around, I think Mr Webb is the one who needs to compromise and give the Rangers a "much cheaper try out"...if not... Rangers should wish him good luck....
Minor league deal with invitation to camp. If he makes the roster ... then same deal and incentves he agreed to last winter would activate.
Wouldn't you rather spend that $ elsewhere? The guy is done.
i think vicente padilla has a better chance of pitching in Texas than this guy.
Only if they are able to get him for $500,000 and a minor league deal.
