What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
I have heard little talk about a guy who is an available 21 game winner @ 26 YOA. I would. And he won't command C.J.money, nor the Darvish posting. What if we kept C.J. and got Kennedy? Put that starting 5 together while your baseball weinees go crazy.
* - Potentially available. My bad. Misread his contract. We'll see what the D-backs do. I bet it is Texas and the Brewers in the WS. But back to the topic, what would you offer for this kid, trade wise?
Hell to the Yes. and where do I sign. This year was not a fluke, but was probably his first year with a decent offense and defense to support him. Zona is more of a pitcher's park it'd be interesting to see how he'd do here, but atleast we know he can take the heat. He's gotten better each year... i've kept an eye on him myself, and he's the real deal.
I agree DC. I brain farted and misread his contract. They have him under team control for sometime. And a team on the cusp? I doubt they'd do anything. But he is one of the few I'd talk "untouchables" for. We have a better chance at getting Kershaw. But we'll see. All may be moot when we see Ramirez and Perez in 2013 or sooner.
what do I offer? you will all come at me with pitchforks and torches..... but this is how it goes down:Start with Colbra: last year of his contract hence salary relief at end of year, hopefully can resign if needed. Olt-i believe Beltre goes full contract; i know a lot of guys like him but I also know he can really only definitively play 3rd. This also lets us keep Profar. And if youre not already getting the nails and 2x4s.... Feliz, yeah i said it. offer a long term (by reliever standards) to Adams, and Cobra Rock is the new closer.
potential Rotation CJ, Kennedy, Holland, Ogando, Harrison = worth it alonewe keep Perez and Profarwe keep Adams making this years trade all the more fruitful. Bugs Bunny can handle it.
alright open it up with both barrells now
I can't. But would that be enuff? And there are a lot of what if's in there. The inclusion of Feliz might get it done, but then figure he is younger and may, or may not, be just as good as a starter. Although I doubt it.Christian V. is a damn good 3B player man. Mendoca is no slouch either. Olt is a stud, but the boys of summer are coming. Olt will be log-jammed by Beltre... no doubt. Keep Profar and Perez? I'd think about it long and hard.And BTW, the ALCS is on FOX. How awesome would it be if Lewin called those games? I tweeted him, but no answer yet.
