In response to ma6dragon9's comment:
I'm STILL mad about dealing him to save 4million for these clowns!
Aviles has been a career utility man, and showed why over the course of the season, he's just not that good.
Additionally, Scutaro was one of the best clubhouse guys they had, and he played hard, and hurt, through the end of the 2011 season (156 games I think without checking). Something not many members of that team could say.
And for all that, they shipped him off to save a few dollars. Management got what they deserved, unfortunately, it's the fans who suffer. What kind of message does that send?
Oh, but all I kept hearing was how "luxury tax" this and "not that good" that, and "Aviles blah blah" something else.
Great, now you got me all pi ss ed off again!
Stupid 3 stooges (Henry, Lucchino, Werner).
And as a last point...wh'd we get for Scutaro? Some bum? Who'd SF give up to get him? I'm not sure who, but I bet it was better than the AAA piece the Sox got.
Idiots. People like Scutaro are the EXACT kinds of players you want to fill out a roster. No, much better to go get a sc um bag like Shoppach. Awesome.
easy...Scoot played 2b this year, not ss. With his arm, which was looking bad at SS with us last year, needed the switch to 2b which he obviously wasnt going to get here. Im sure he wouldve been traded this year anyway.
Hopefully Mortensen will workout good. Young starter/bullpen guy...Along with getting Ross with the $$$ saved...Good deal for Sox...
