Yup a 9 year old kid said it so why couldn't Dipoto not know this.

 

I would have been happy with.......

 

Mike Trout LF..................$510K

Peter Bourjos CF............$512K

Torii Hunter RF...............$12M

Kendrys Morales DH......$5.2M

Mark Trumbo 1B............$540K

Howie Kendrick 2B.........$9.1M

Jean Segura SS.............$420K

Eric Chavez 3B..............$3M

Russell Martin C.............$7.5M

 

Total.............................. $38 Million

 

Over $100 million left to spend on pitching and bench players. Also trading Aybar for pitching help or prospects.

That lineup is awful.   Have you guys looked at what Torii has done the last two months after his ridiculously hot start?   Kendrys had a great May but has been really bad the other two months of the season.  Russell Martin is roughly equal to our current catching battery offensively.  Chavez has looked great so far, but I don't think he's found the fountain of youth and will probably come back to earth given he's barely been able to stay on the field the last few years.

We'd still be paying Wells $14M a year. Unless you are arguing you would go back in time and not do the Wells trade, but instead trade Napoli for pitching talent... or keep Napoli for 2011-2012 as a first baseman and backup catcher not sign Pujols. 

 

on the subject of pitching:

 

Weaver

Corbin

Chatwood

Skaggs

Saunders 

 

wouldn't be too bad either. F'n Reagins and Dipoto.

Best thing about that lineup is the flexibility in being able to make moves in the future.

Worst thing about the team's current situation is that there really isn't much room to do anything to improve the team other than taking some gambles and hoping for a miracle.

Torii Hunter RF...............$12M.......WAR...1.0..Hamilton 0.0

Kendrys Morales DH......$5.2M...... WAR..1.2...Pujols 1.2

Mark Trumbo 1B............$540K

Howie Kendrick 2B.........$9.1M

Eric Chavez 3B..............$3M..........WAR...1.4...Callaspo 0.9

It's a much better and cheaper lineup than what we have today. Wow the potential to make additions would have been epic.
