    150 Million player position move in GM incompetence

    Needless to say, Agon is an outstanding 1st baseman who has a lot of money left on his superstart contract. Youk is in the last few months of his contract. Needless to say, Youk should be ordered to play the smallest corner OF position and should have been rehabbing there in the minors.

    How obvoius whas this decision, Cherry!

    If you don't write the words "bean counting" in every post we can't be sure it is actually you.  Lots of typos and words spelled incorrectly.  Did your 7 year old get your password?

    Snake - I have to disagree with you on this one.  When you read a headline that sounds like it was written in Mandarin, translated to Swahili using Google Translate, then translated again to English ... then you know it's Softy.  

    Softy - Please tell me English is not your first language.

    Youk gains no trade value in the outfield. Showing that he can still play first however...

    Showing that Ortiz or your grandmother can still play first means zilch. Youk gains no trade value until he hits well for several weeks. Where he's told to play is meaningless.

    I do not understand this fixation on playing Youk in left field.

    does anyone think agon was the guy that said he would play RF? I mean anyway to help the team right? put the best hitting lineup to help you win..maybe he is doing this because he wants to win? maybe a deal will happen maybe not? who knows what will happen...

    The sad part is they are loaded with slow players. The guys who can play outfield can't hit, the guys who can hit, can't run.

    The days of players who can do it all are fading fast.

    Baseball is a game of specialists. I would expect that in an emergency many players of the past would be able to adapt better. They were better athletes back about 40 years ago. Now, with all the studies, data and new training methods, they have created players that are unable to stay healthy, specialize in certain areas ( who ever heard of a "set up" guy in 1978?) and need multiple days off during the season.

    Because Ellsbury and Carl Crawford aren't amazing athletes who could play multiple sports if they desired...

    And it's not like the Red Sox have convinced any draftees to not play, say, college football, and play minor league baseball instead. That'd be crazy, baseball players aren't "do it all" athletes!

    Baseball has ALWAYS been made up of plenty of players who aren't especially athletic. One thing they have in common, though, is that they are especially skilled...and given how ridiculously skill-intensive the sport is, the only way to even have enough players to play the game is to include anyone who does well enough. There are a LOT of jobs to fill on the field in this game...

    YOuk has months left on his contract. AGon has years and around 150 million of payments left to be made. Pure idiocy to put AGon in the corner OF because he will do what is best for the team, while Youk and has few months of contract have requested not to be put in the OF. Order Youk to the OF, Cherry, instead of putting about 150 million at much higher risk of injury.

    Space, this one is for you. In the proposed federal regulation to determine if a person qualifies for civil rights federally protected minority class protection, the federal idenitity test to be federally included in the federal class for "Gay" is the person says "I'm Gay" or presents a marriage or domestic partner license from one of minority States that is progressive and is opposed to haters. This qualifies the person for affirmative action in employment and admissions to schools that receive taxpayer wealth redistribution, as well as Ad Council spokesman opportunities that qualifiy for a State pension.

    Agon has played RF in Texas because Mark Texiera was blocking him at 1b...Youk is absolutly terrible in the OF...Just because a guy makes 20mil per he shouldnt play the OF? thats weak...I suppose he cant get injured playing 1st or diving for a ball in the infield...by the way, Gonzo has made 2 sweet catches in RF so far...And Zilla, 2 of those guys that cant hit, Nava and Pods went deep today. Nava has greatly improved his game since 2010...
