Thanks MOON, your making my point...... They got rid of O-Cab right away and eventually the MAN-CHILD-FRAUD- too !!! And Aceves is never to be confused with the MAN-CHILD !!!!
OCab was a FA. He left of his own accord. They were so upset with Manny, they waited until they won 2 WSCs with him, and 7.67 years of an 8-year contract.
My point is that we and many other teams have won with "nutcases" onboard.
Yes, we traded Manny eventually, and we haven't won since.
I'm not saying that improving the clubhouse culture and on-the-field attitude are meaningless, but I think some posters here are bringing that position to an extreme.
Kum-bay-ya is not a be-all-end-all goal and does not win ball games.
Some of the stars of our rings had some serious issues such as Manny (too many to list), OCab (messing with teammates wives), Lowe (booze), Foulke (no love for the game), Millar (many thought was too clownish), Youk (temper tantrums), and more...
Right MOON.... But this one is easy...... Aceves and his track/history record is well documented..... Time to move on and try & salvage VALUE if you can !!!
Okay Bill, here is your chance.
Research the internet and find out how many articles you can access that shows his issues are well-documented, prior to Valentine.
I'm from NY and read every article about the NYY players, and pretty much remember every single negative article like, for example, Phil Hughes being sent to the fat farm, or Giambi hitting 63 HRs over a 162 game period, and NYY fans denying his PED use.
I do not remember one single negative article about Aceves, other than him having the bicycle accident which, to me, is not an issue.
So, since his history is well-documented, post maybe 3-4 articles describing 3-4 separate incidences.
Or admit that you are lying.
