In response to Softlaw1's comment:
16-20M is a far cry from 26. Also the word is advocating for Hunter, not begging
No, it's not a "far cry" for an old man from an LA dumpster. Advocating is begging, everywhere including ambulance chaser suits.
If the Red Sox can't take VMart's entire 2 year and base 13 contract for farm scraps, and if they can't buy Napolie for 2 and base 10M, they need to platoon Loney and 1 to 2M and Gomez. True incompetence to give away AGon to get rid of Crawford and Beckett's contracts that resulted from the same incompetence.
advocate: advise, argue for, campaign for, champion, commend, countenance, defend, encourage, espouse, favour, hold a brief for, justify, plead for, prescribe, press for, promote, propose, recommend, speak for, support, uphold, urge, apostle, backer, campaigner, champion, counsellor, defender, promoter, proponent, proposer, speaker, spokesman, supporter, upholder
Nope, I dont see beg in there anywhere. Maybe you should learn the meaning of the words you use before you use them. It might make your opinions a little more credible...Just a thought.
