Re: Jocketty remains quiet about trade plans
It's really sad that our most expensive players, and I'm not including just Dunn and Griffey at all, are unmovable. I would put those two plus Freel, Gonzalez, and Arroyo are also in this group. Of course, Freel and Gonzalez are on the DL (and lilkely to be for the rest of the season), but our hands are tied. We have expensive corner outfielders who cannot be moved because no one wants them. We have a shortstop who has barely played and a utility man being paid what a position player is paid. I'm sure folks want Bruce or Encarnacion or others (including Weathers and Ross), but no one (and I mean no one) wants Valentin, Patterson, and Bako.
This roster is so messed up. I don't envy Walt Jocketty. This club is poorly put together from the start. It's a testament to someone (and I'm not sure who) that we're only 5 games underr .500.
