  1. Butcher has pretty good stats...
  2. Or given Beltre a 5th year...anything but signing Wells....
  3. None of those guys, with the exception of a healthy Richards, would have brought much back....Outside of Trout, we didn't have anybody to bring back a good package...
  4. Guilty of snarkiness (though it was in response to the same) and typing too fast at work (my thoughts were a little garbled)....
  5. Well I don’t want Arte to sell but I agree with your otherwise....I was trying to explain the reasoning, based on Arte’s statements, for “pulling the plug”...I think it was a mistake because we missed a chance to get better for what appears to have been a very reasonable cost....
  6. I guess the argument would be you had to take Pederson and his money to get Stripling and that would have inhibited going after a better pitcher in July.....I still think it was an opportunity lost...we’ll see....
  7. Yes and no....I happen to like him and I usually do defend him....I lived through Jackie Autry and Disney so I appreciate him, on balance...but I do think he screwed this one up....and I was being sarcastic with Lou, who I’ve sparred with all afternoon....we’ll see how it turns out and no, I don’t want a new owner....
  8. Good grief....the Arte defense can’t handle any detractors, not even any levity....
  9. Do you have a link to verify that the baseball people wanted Harvey, Allen and Cahill? I’ll hang up and listen...
  10. Jeff: Assuming the media reports were accurate, why would you be in serious discussions with the Dodgers about Stripling if he feels that way?
  11. Dan Haren was pretty good, although he was "frontline" really for the rest of 2010 and 2011 only....dropped off after that and we didn't get in the playoffs with him, also gave up Corbin....Greinke was good for the two months we had him but we didn't get in the playoffs so that probably wasn't a great deal...wasn't Greinke's fault we didn't make the playoffs...
