What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
should the rangers be interested in him? he could be had for cheap and would be a good back up IFer who couldplay up the middle. maybe Borbon for Brignac?
Sure. Who couldn't use a lifetime .227 hitter who had an OPS last year of .232.
I would sign him in a heartbeat.
Not sure. He spend most of last year in AAA, and didn't put remarkable numbers of any sort. He was a top 20 prospect 5 years ago, but just hasn't contributed much of anything to the Rays since then. That being said, I suspect he'll be the odd man out in TB since they signed Kelly Johnson. I don't think I'd give up much for him (probably not even Borbon, as you suggest), but he would probably be a sure thing to make the team as middle infield bench.
But he had a WAR of 2.3 in 2010. This needs to happen. I wonder if they would consider a trade for Elvis straight up. Throw in Olt if needed.
I think we could get him for even less Toledo.
Wait until he is on waivers, sign to minor league deal with invitation to Surprise, and if Olt and/or Profile are going to begin this season at Round Rock, compete with Baker, Snyder and Solarte for utility role. Just turned 27, a lefty middle infielder, with some power and size. But I would favor Solarte even tho Brignac is a shortstop and Solarte is not. But if Andrus goes down, the Rangers would call up Profar not go with Brignac. Every year there is a Brignac type that has some success, but it would not be with a contender, so the Astros or Mets would be a much better fit.
I'd rather have Gorignac from Galaxy Quest
I dunno, but I think he's really cute.
Are you sure Romro?
WAR doesnt lie!
We need to pounce for such a bench player. He could end up having a WAR of 2.5...maybe even 3 this year.
He's still relatively young (27), and he would only be a bench player. The problems I have with him are the fact that he walks about as much as Michael Young, and strikes out a ton.
Also, with 4 years left before he hits free agency, I'm not sure what TB or TX's motivations would be.
Not that Eric is posting under my name.
Romro: Grow up you stupid waste of time.If you think I'm still posting using your stupid name then you are stupider than we all thought you were.
SHHH! He's been on our radar for some time. We were just hoping we wouldn't have to give up Olt AND Perez for him
Stupider??? Wow you really are the shining example of intelligence. You need to quit making eyes at the varsity quarterback in your English class and pay attention.
Again Romro with the "gay" reference. Kinda makes you wonder. Seriously is that all you got? Vague homophobe references? WOW
I'm just going off what you've posted. I mean, you did recently come out of the closet to us.
You're a fucking idiot Romro. Get over it.
Cry moar NTE.
