Just out of curiosity how many of you have these players Moeller, Crosby, Livingston, Hamilton Stanton, Weathers and Conine on your fantasy teams.?
I wonder if we offer Harris who we dfaed to the devil rays for the rights to Hamilton. That way they get a player and we would get to keep Hamilton.
And, for the record, I agree with you about the international scouting.
Other players Jeff Conine has had the pleasure of sharing a roster with:
No truth to the rumor that he was part of the famed double play combo, Tinker to Evers to Conine.
"I can make all the stadiums rock."
It's another piece and it's not a bad one. And you're overstating how much of the payroll is going into the winter pick ups - it's highly suspect to think that we're approaching between 20 and 25 Million on those players (and that's figuring the payroll between 60 and 75 million).
The truth is, around here, there's no pleasing some people. Oh well. Time to go pick up some pizza for dinner.
Narron, on acquiring Conine (from Marc's blog):
"Iím excited about it. Heís a guy that we know has had an outstanding career so far. Heís very talented, can do a lot of things with the bat, play multiple positions. Iíve admired him and respected him a long time, just by the way he goes about his business. He plays the game the right way and can bring a lot of leadership to our club."
I am starting to think that Krivsky has a string attached to Narrons backside and just pulls it when he wants this response."I’m excited about it. He’s a guy that we know has had an outstanding career so far. He’s very talented, can do a lot of things with the bat, play multiple positions. I’ve admired him and respected him a long time, just by the way he goes about his business. He plays the game the right way and can bring a lot of leadership to our club."
Jerry and his multiple positions, it would be nice if he had players that could play one position outstanding.
...which says the average MLB salary now is $2.7 million a year.
The reality is that these bench guys that Kriv is plowing all this payroll into are average guys who are making average money for what they do. For the most part, they'd be making the same kind of money somewhere else.
Except for Chad Moeller, I'm still scratching my head about Chad.
I'm not excited about acquiring Conine, but I don't have a problem with it; he's a guy you know you can depend on, who doesn't get hurt very often, can hit a little bit. Steady, dependable, and apparently a big fan of Alex Gonzalez.
