What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
This whole off-season reminds me (sorta) of Jessica Simpson, asking (former) husband Nick a pointed question:"Baby, (whilst digging fork into can) is this really tuna or chicken? It says, "Chicken of the Sea", on the label."Yes, it's gut laughable, but what do ya expect, really? As noted by Great Guitarist & lover, "Jessica is napalm sex".
This brings me to the thought of our winter objectives & pursuit of Gap Fill-Ins, as of NOW. I DO say fill-ins, because I, for one, don't look at the Team as a rebuild. I see tweaks only. Yes, big names have dropped from FA Mrkt, butreally, were they "Tuna or Chicken"?
The Org. may look overly frugal, but why paint the team into a corner with bad & lengthy contracts. It's really NOTabout the money(my perception, TY). It's about immediate FIT and Real Meat to carry the Team forward in 2013.I won't blink much, if the Org decides to "fork out Tuna" to some One Year contracts. I see where a Thome, Ibanezor even Priezynski could fill in for a short stint.
My winter watch is waining a bit. My ears are not hearing "The next NEW..." Bah, I'm ready for small moves that pointfocus and direction. Sure, maybe the Big Arm & Big Bat are still to come, but I know the difference between tuna and...
NAPALM Sex? Is that like Wendy's Hot & Juicy?
Also, what is up with the formatting in your post?
Screw the Rangers I want to here more about this Napalm sex you speak of!
This analogy just made me insane, but I'm going to take a shot at trying to interpret what you're saying. You're saying the top free agents that everyone is hyping so much (the Tuna) are way over-hyped and are not nearly the players people are making them out to be (more like chicken). If that's your point then I think I agree if you take into consideration the amount of compensation those players are going to get. Every single target (except Koji) the Rangers were going after got what appears to be very high contracts. The question is really, is this the cost of doing business in the MLB today or is this a few over zealous teams going crazy that are going to very much regret it in a couple years... I would say yes, but not really all that much. These teams seem to have very large pockets and with the large tv contracts I don't see that money drying up any time soon.
I thought he meant the Ranger's prospects are like dumb Jessica Simpson right now but they might eventually turn into napalm sex....no?
Yep, it was an analogy attempt wrapped up in a (slight) humorous metaphor. Deep huh? Are we getting tuna or chicken, with our (non)signings. Are we as confused as Ms. Jessy?No, probably not. Well, certainly not. The wacko tangent of Katie Humbleton dating confusionlead me to this Lunar Landing. Dating & a $25Mil/y signing. What can of meat was Katie eating? Spam?
Spam spam spam spam spam ... ok, I love Monte Python too. Frick'n Nits.
Whelp, I nevahhh! Sorry troll, it was tongue in cheak fun and off the cuff. Bend yer mind a little & chill bro,OR ignor-ant brain.
Hubz are you high? I simply cannot believe that a functional person can write as atrociously as your posts in this thread.
Really? I thought it was pointed and histerical. Things bother you at 4am? Try some sleep.
He does this all the time, BZ. It's quite funny if you take the time to appreciate it.
Sorry guys, I was quite tired at 4am and his post just wasn't making sense to me.
Got some sleep and so I redact my previous comment.
Hubz, you are the mentally healthy version of John Berryman. The "Great Guitarist" reference scared the kibble out of my cat due to the loud laughter it evoked. Thank you.
Roughly translated-Prmi crapped his pants.
