In response to Joebreidey's comment:
So true. It was a great plan to stockpile prospects before the big rule changes. It will be interesting to see how we do over the coming years with the draft. We may see more international signings as a result of fewer com picks, but we may get a pick for Ellsbury and Napoli's departures.
We have a shot with Drew as well.The biggest issue of concern was health. He's played in 55-62 since his return. His history suggests .750+, and he's fielded well. I'd say he is in line for a $30M/3 contract. He's a much more valuable player than Ross, who got $26M/3. Better than Hunter who got $26M/2.
This is a prime example of JoeyBs baseball acuman....who in their right mind would advocate signing SDrew to a 3 year thirty million dollar contract? Even if you didnt have Iggy already there for the next five years it would be a moronic use of resources. Joey never fails to amaze with his bootlickedness. BTW Joey, 6.6 sixty? LOLOL I guess that would make Mr. Ball the fastest pitcher of all time.
you are truly dumb
You can't even even read anymore. I said, if he has an OPS of > .750, SOMEONE ELSE would offer him $30M/3. Of course, if you couldn't comprehend it the first time I wrote, I'm not sure why I'd expect you to comprehend it the second time I wrote it.
IRT Ball, 6.6 is not close to the fastest pitcher of all time. Ron Guidry was said to be about as fast as Mickey Rivers.
Do you, you know, follow baseball by any chance?
