What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Change three things in this teams history what would it be?Would you...Include cano instead of ariasKeep AGonKeep hafnerTrade blalock at his primeRe sign pudgeI'd like to hear what you guys have to say.
I would draft pujols, start David Clyde in the minors and insert cano for arias
I'd have built mass transit to the ballpark.
1. Design TBIA with a retractable roof (but otherwise keep it right where it is but also with higher railings)
2. Not sign A-Rod for $250+ million
3. Maybe send Juan Gonzalez and Kevin Brown to charm school.
I don't know if this is more important than any of those... but I think it's almost robbery that all we got was Brad Wilkerson in the trade with Soriano. Seeing that Soriano was traded for A-Rod... some connecting the dots and you have the Rangers trading A-Rod for Brad Wilkerson. I understand it was a salary dump but jeez.
Well getting cano would some what offset the Wilkerson for arodI like the mass transit one.I would also suggest not allowing hicks to own the rangers at all
I too like the Ball Park where it is, as well as how it is, but it would be advantageous to be able to jump on a train or shuttle to get to a game, not pay for parking, and have some drinks w/o the worry of driving. From Fort Worth it isn't too bad, but still it would be cool. Plus it would allow you folks to the East an easier opportunity to enjoy more games.
I'd also have liked the team to have pursued this current philosophy back when Melvin wanted to do it. We'd have been winning far sooner and longer. But we are here now, and that's what counts.
And I'd have forced Soriano to play OF, regardless what he wanted. Frank Robinson forced him, as did the Cubs. Showalter couldn't. You don't trade a 40/40 guy for Wilkerson.
ImagineC-pudge1b-agon2b-canoSS-MY (I know I know)3B-Tex LF- SorianoCF- kinsler (I move him to the of too)RF- CruzDH- blalockThis could have been the line up 4-5 years ago.
Not so good defensively but definantly would RAKE
One more "If you could", albeit redundant on my end, I'd have kept Josh Lewin.
I'd build the park in Downtown Dallas. Corporate buying drives revenues and thus payroll, and Arlington means corporate buying being a tiny % of what it would be in Dallas.
Would not give up Kinsler for Cano. Would have liked to have kept Gonzalez. Would have liked to have not paid out the nose for A-Rod, unless that road doesn't lead to Nolan taking over.
I would have done that thing with the other deal, and I definitely wouldn't have made THAT trade. I would have made THIS one instead!
Um... do yo like peach cobbler?
If you could be a tree, what kind of tree would you be? Name 3 things about yourself that would be surprising to someone. Talk amongst yourselves.
