post #61 of 9789
I think there is some team out there that will offer Pagan a big contract. One that far exceeds his worth. I can see a team offering him around $12M a year. If thats the case, we need to take that $12M, add a little more money to it, and go after Michael Bourn.

Affeldt is very good, but I am not giving him the absurd amount that LA just gave Brandon League. Not a chance in hell. If he wants a 3-$15M...bring him back. Anything more than that is ridiculous.

Scutaro should be back, and I would sign him to roughly the same contract we gave Freddie after the World Series....somewhere in the 2-$12M range.

That projected arbitration number for Wilson seems ridiculous to me. $8.5M for someone coming off his second TJ surgery? Theres no way an arbitrator gives him that. No shot.

CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury has heard that Michael Bourn is seeking a contract worth close to $100 million.

Good luck with that.

Pagan wants Rowand money. I just hope they don't give it to him. When he's hot - he's hot, but he can cool down like nobody else.

Those ******g Dodgers giving League a Brinks truck and now Affeldt wants the same. mean.gif

I wouldn't mind Melky back.

Grady Sizemore is still young. Does he have one more run left in him? nerd.gif

Can't forget about Gary Brown waiting in the wings.

Melky Cabrera
Freddy Sanchez
Xavier Nady
Aubry Huff
Guillermo Mota


Jeremy Affeldt 3-15M 3-17M

Angel Pagan- I'm think somewhere in the 8-10 range for three years.

Marco Scutaro- Give him what he wants. (2- 16M) I think he made 6M this season.

I think Melky is of of the question. Even if he comes super cheap which he should. I could see some one overpaying based on the fact that there isn't a lot of outfield help out there unless you want to break the bank on Bourn, Hamilton or Upton.

How can we kick Pence to the curb?

That's a lot of money coming off the books, LB. We have a pretty good chance at retaining our top FA. Just not too thrilled if we have to overspend to do it.

Also, Lincecum's arbitration is up after next season and we know he was looking to get a deal around the $20 million range. My question is, if he doesn't return to form next year and he's relegated to bullpen duty again what are the chances we lose him? There's not a a reliever in the world worth that money, I don't care if you are a prime Mariano Rivera.

If he struggles again as a starter, then I am pretty sure he's gone. I think he rebounds next year, though. Dude wants to cash in.

How can we kick Pence to the curb?

A few things:

-I agree with your first list. See you later guys. Thank you Freddy and Aubrey for 2010. But we are done there.

-I agree Affeldt is worth around $5-6M a year. Dodgers may have ****** us here. League is making $7.5M and is not as good as Affeldt.

-Pagan will get more than 3 for 24 from another team. You can bet on that. I like Pagan a lot, but I dont want to overspend for him. He is a streaky hitter, and played much better defense this year than ever in his career. If we are stuck with a big contract for a guy who doesnt historically play great defense, I wont be happy. I agree with your numbers being what I want to give him, I just dont see him taking that personally.

-I agree with your sentiments about Scutaro, but I wouldnt give him "whatever he wants." 2 for 12-14 seems right to me.

-I would love to have Melky back, but I just dont see it happening. I am not sure I want Blanco as our everyday LFer, but I love Blanco as our 4th OF.

-I'm confused about your last statement about kicking Pence to the curb. I know you arent saying we should, but I dont even understand the idea. Hes under our control for next year. So why is this even brought up? By the way, I fully expect Pence to have a monster season next year (.285, 25Hr, 95 RBI)

Hell no to Sizemore. Theres no point.

And call me the eternal pessimist, but I dont think Gary Brown will ever be that good. When a player is drafted out of college (especially drafted HIGH out of college), there is a reasonable expectation that he is very close to being MLB ready. You have played 3-4 years at a high level, and are typically in your early 20s. Brown was drafted out of college, and has already spent three seasons in the minor leagues and cant even crack AAA?

I pray that I am wrong here, but I think that fact alone speaks volumes about how good he is going to be. He didnt even play great in AA last year. He is 6 years out of high school now. This will be a very telling year for him. If he hovers around .270 again, I would be SHOCKED if he is every a productive Major Leaguer, let alone being a future star like our organization thinks he will be.

- Pagan 4 yr-50 mil? Man, I LOVED Pagan this year, but **** that's alot of cash tied up to a streaky player. Somebody is definitely going to overpay for his services...

 

- Wouldn't mind having Melky back

Let’s Play That Number

CF #1 2012 .246/28/78 with 31SB
CF#2 2012 .274/9/57 with 42 SB
CF#3 2012 .288/8/56 with 29 SB

Those are what I believe not name Josh Hamilton the best 3 CF that is in a free agent market this year. If you have your choice who would you pick? I know the stats is bare minimum with this day and age of sabermetrics but I think it’s a fun game to play.

ill post more later my thoughts are all over the place because of the football game ha ha ha

The Braves extended a qualifying offer to Michael Bourn, Evan Drellich of MLB.com reports (on Twitter). The free agent center fielder now has one week to accept or decline the offer.

If Bourn accepts, he’ll earn $13.3MM on a one-year deal in 2013. If he declines, he’ll be linked to draft pick compensation in free agency -- his new team will have to surrender a top selection to sign him.

The Rays extended a qualifying offer to B.J. Upton, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports (on Twitter). The free agent center fielder now has one week to accept or decline the offer.

If Upton accepts, he’ll earn $13.3MM on a one-year deal in 2013. Assuming he declines, he’ll be linked to draft pick compensation in free agency -- his new team will have to surrender a top selection to sign him.

Every day I pray she loses her job. Words cannot express my hatred for her. If you are going to be a dugout/sideline reporter, you need to be at least one of two things:

a) incredibly good at your job
b) very attractive

Amy G is neither.

Her being annoying is only part of why I hate her. She is annoying, yes. But she is also ugly, overly emotional, has a stutter, gets all starry eyed when talking to players and is incredibly arrogant. I hate the way she has that "I'm AmyG and you arent" attitude. Its like, ***** you only have the job because of your husband. You have no reason to big league fans.



Oh...and btw Jumpman......The Giants won the World Series about a week ago. The Warriors are 2-1. And you have an avy dedicated to the Raiders. CLEAN IT UP!!! wink.gif

Here is the thing. Does she work for the Giants or Comcast? If she works for Comcast then get the **** off the car. mean.gif

Even still...she don't deserve her OWN car. She spends most of her air time promoting her sandwich.
