What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Manny Ramirez has opted out of his contract in Taiwan and is said to be looking for a big league contract no matter the role. He said he would accept a pinch hitting role if it was all he was offered. With the fact that Berkman just doesnt appear to be able to do anything from the left side of the plate would anyone be interested in him in some kind of minimum salary platoon role? I'm sure Daniels wouldnt even entertain the idea, but I think the idea would be at least somewhat intruguing.
OH MY GOD. We would be better off signing Babe Ruth's coffin.
He was batting over .350 with an almost .500 OBP. Cant be much worse than Berkman has been at least from the left side anyways. He could actually help teach our young hitters a lot too. For all his faults every where he went they praised him as being very willing to teach the young guys.
Are you on drugs?

Yes, actually, it can get worse, (a) because Lance Berkman hasn't been nearly as bad as some people are saying, and (b) because Taiwan's pitching equivalency loosely resembles the Arizona Rookie League, just without any prospects.
There is some stupid shit posted on here. The rangers wouldnt wan that nut job if he hit 300,-38 hr-120 rbis.
@eric reigning.... I was under the understanding that they were more equivalent to something of a between AA and AAA level.
I just threw this out for a little dicussion. Like I said I would never dream that Daniels or Ryan or anyone else in the front office would even think about it. And by the way Eric I think he has been pretty bad from the left side of the plate. Hve you really watched and seen how weakly he roles over on a lot of the pitches from the left side. He gets nothing from his back leg or hips on the left side. Ecspecially when they pitch him in.
We get even less when you post this drivel.
I can only assume this was a joke or someone is stupider than Robbifist.
Profar, if I want any scouting analysis, I'll read up on Jason Parks or something.
The Rangers aren't going to go after Manny Ramirez because, mainly, he has suspect makeup. Texas only likes players who are good and who get along with everyone and who don't needlessly provoke distractions. As much as I love Manny, he's not good anymore, he's a huge distraction, and there's no place for him on the roster.
Lance Berkman has shitty knees, which has apparently sapped his power from the left side. Recently he said he was working on a mechanical adjustment, so we'll see if that means anything.
The only thing I can guarantee is that, if JD & Co. are seriously concerned with Lance's production moving forward, they will certainly do something about it.
I heard Babe Ruth's coffin hit .275 and drove in a couple in the RBI league one time.
I agree with Eric there is no way Manny comes to Texas. He was done with the Dodgers. What is he going to teach the youngsters, the proper way to shoot up 'Roids? maybe in the minors Manny can hit .350 with some pop still but so can Berkman. I really fail to see what manny gives you that Berkman can't. Maybe the Marlins or the Mariners take a flier on Manny but I seriously doubt that. But personally, I would wait for the Angels to give Mr. Ramirez a $75 million 5 year deal to play RF/1B for them in case Josh and Albert go down. Actually, I coul dalmost see the Angels making that deal.
East: Your attempt at "humor' was a popup to the catcher at best.
JD:Your attempt at a life is a 5 strike out game.
THIS JUST IN:
East has just been confirmed as an idiot.
Well the old news is, JD has no job, no car, lives with his mother, and really has no purpose in life. It's cool that you troll around all day looking like a cunt, putting merely a penny of a thought into what you say. It's alright JD, I don't really give a hoot. Your rudimentary insults don't offend me, or anyone. I often find myself scrolling past anything you say, as I'm sure many do. You keep being you JD, and I'll keep ignoring you.
So you IGNORE me by posting a novella ABOUT me? WOW! You might wanna look up the meaning og IGNORE.
Hitting .350 in a league consistent with AA or AAA at best is not good... Pass 100x over.
JD, just because it doesn't have pictures, doesn't mean it's a novel.
Ignore me-you haven't yet numbnuts.
another fucking spare pitcher we make look like weaver
i got sum weavs in ma hare
@JD and @eric reigning.... how stupid do I look now? Looks like Daniels and Ryan had the same thought as I did. Its almost free so why not take a look.
@Profar, the best thing about this is Berkman can get DFA'd when Manny arrives. Love it #CutBerkman
