Ive been saying for a couple months now this guy would be a nice addition for a year or 2...
Its always nice to have a couple vets that can still produce in a clubhouse with a bunch of young players...
I've been with you on Hunter, as I think he is a perfect fit in right for his defense alone. There is no way they would let Ross play right full time even if they do sign him, so I don't think it's an either/or. The problem is that he may be more costly than we think. The Yankees, Tigers, Rangers, Braves & many other teams will probably be in on him. He lives in Dallas, which will likely make Texas very attractive to him. He'll also likely get at least a 2 year deal.
So glad you are looking out for John's money. WHO CARES HOW MUCH THEY SPEND? Geez! if only Washington was as fiscally repsonsible with our tax dollars, as the bean counters on this forum are with Henry's.
Is the goal to build a championship team while spending the least amount of money? Is there some kind of award for that? I can see the point if there was a personal vested interest in keeping player salaries down.
Actually, there is...I don't want to see them go into another off season where they can't sign a starting pitcher for 10 million a year and they have to trade a utility infielder to be able to sign a starting outfielder and back up catcher, because they are at the luxury tax limit. I understand that you don't grasp how the luxury tax works, but it seems pretty ignorant to knock people who do.
