What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Nate McLouth.... to a 1-year low base but inventive laden deal. GIves him a chane to get his mojo back and platoon with Gentry and provides the bridge to Matin. This is assuming of course they expect nothing from BOrbonand thatr Martin isn't rady till later in the season.
This Dude used to be good, then in 2010, the floor collapsed on him. He crawled back to just "not very good" last year, BUT, his versus righties #s are a bit fairly respectable.. If it's not a health thing, maybe the Rangers can figure it out and get him back to what he was, then he signs with somebody next year for big $, and Martin is our CF.
If they keep Murphy, and Hamilton & Cruz are both healthy, they really don't need another OF cluttering things up there. At the moment, Gentry looks like a decent platoon guy in CF, and Martin is getting paid pretty big bucks - he's going to get a shot at some point in the near future. Then you have Borbon, who is ready for the major leagues too. I guess it depends on trades, whether Borbon or Gentry will be included in any deals they make (I can't imagine Martin would be),
So, all that to say... if they want to tinker with the roster, they have more pressing needs than OF, namely pitching and 1B.
McLouth was great that 1 season - but he has been injured-mediocre-terrible since. Gotta start wondering if his good year was just luck.
I think we should trade gentry and borbon along with someone like olt to the mariners for ichiro. I know ichi runs the mariners basically but they need more players and maybe we can sell high on lots good afl showing. As for this years Brandon webb hail Mary ... JOE NATHAN!;)
