You guys know better than me about stats and stuff. I just have trouble getting by the expression on the guy's face. It would be like the Ravens bringing in Hines Ward. Maybe if the smirking guy is on your team it isn't too bad, but he just rubs me wrong.
I'll pass on Nick "the dick" Swisher
No way Petey and DD spend superstar money on an average player...
It makes no sense at all. Better off spending that kind of money on a superstar or even a couple of average players. McLouth and Reimold can play left.
There's something to be said about chemistry and you guys seemed to have it in spades this past year. Someone like Swisher could easily come in and disrupt if not destroy it regardless of his on field production. He strikes me as a slightly more talented Kevin Millar in that he's a guy who's mostly about self promotion and styling/profiling and if his team happens to do well then all the better.
But all the same I think you can find better and much cheaper fits elsewhere.
If Swisher expects $9-10 million plus per year, forget him. I'm thoroughly opposed to wasting our owner's money on a retread. For $10 million, we can get two or three years of superior production out of Hall of Famer Vlad the Impaler.
it seems to me that you're putting the cart before the horse. you need to focus on which left fielder can help the team make it to the post season.
in 2003, the NYY & FLA went to the WS.
do you know why? because Boston and CHI decided to save their #1 starters for game 1 of the WS. they never made it that far, because NY & FLA realized there was no WS if they didn't win game 7. they used their best pitcher to win the most important game of the season, their next game.
I'm not opposed to committing to Nate in LF. I think he played well enough to deserve the position. he'll be an inexpensive alternative and he has speed. he's not an impact bat, but he's a solid player.
