Mike Napoli - C - Rangers
Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and Sirius XM reports that Mike Napoli is holding out for a four-year deal from the Red Sox.
If Napoli can't get it from Boston, he's going to look for alternatives. With that in mind, Bowden hears that Napoli will meet with the Mariners, who may be willing to give a fourth year. The 31-year-old is coming off a down year, but has plenty of pop and could be used at catcher, first base or DH.
[/QUOTE] Great ! Just what we need ,a guy who bats 200 but he has power... just f....n great
Since his career average is .259, why wouldn't you call him a .300 hitter, using your rounding logic?
better yet Notin, you can base someone's pitching value in their 9 seasons of excellece (cy young pitcher) on 2 starts in the postseason...sound familiar?
Yes it does sound familiar. THat was part of JoeBreidey's analysis of Greinke, found on page 2 of the "Mike Napoli and FOUR YEARS" thread. Is there a reason you are pointing this out to me and not, say, JoeBreidey?
Or is it because I supported using statistical analysis, and therefore all of that voodoo is the same to you? Any one stats is as bad as any other stat, and if you like one. Right? It would not be the first time you have shown disdain for numbers and stated you wanted done everything on gut feeling.
And there is nothing wrong with gut feelings, beyond the actual answers you get about half the time, if you are lucky enough. The real issue here is your narrow-minded contempt for anyone who does not think like you. "ROM NO LIKE STATS! ROM WANT BASH STAT PEOPLE!! ROM LIKE AWARDS!! GET ROM AWARDS!! AND FEED ROM SOUP!!!"
OK, maybe that isn't the most accurate interpretation. Heck, I do not even know if you like soup.
By the way, have you ever compared the careers of Greinke and Lester? Would you pay Lester $110-120mill?
Notin -that might be the most inane thing you have ever written - and that is saying something....and as far as Lester goes, if he were on another team and a free agent, the bootlickers would tear him apart despite his stellar career record/averages....I would be the one saying he is worth 4 years at 15-20 mil a yr based on his age and record....you on the other hand would be citing his 2012 season and dwelling on cancer remission rates stating he couldnt "hack" Boston...thats the difference between you an I...I have no agenda and speak honestly...
