In response to ma6dragon9's comment:
They'll never again find a guy who complains about money for FOUR YEARS and still has people backing him.
He's certainly one-of-a-kind.
He's so irreplacable it's widely agreed that no other team would offer more than a single year, and not even 10mil for that year.
He's so irreplacable most other AL teams have minimized the value of the DH in general.
I mean, who else would we have to then barge in on press conferences because of personal stats? Publicly question the manager's decisions? Talk about money? And years? And respect? Talk about "not wanting to deal with the drama", and possible "playing for NY" hours after the worst collapse in team history? Bristle whenever the media questions his bad play? And then expect adulation when he plays well? It must be impossible to pay another guy to perform who has ZERO leadership qualities. No, wait, they just traded Adrian Gonzalez away. And to those of you who think he IS a leader...where's that been? When? With who? The only person he's publicly supported in 3 years has been Aceves, who turned out to be one of the biggest a s s holes on the team. Awesome.
Before Ortiz got hurt...the TEAM was on pace for...what? 75 wins? OoOoOoOoOo!
If you want to continue to focus on the wrong things, and middle away...sure, sign him up!
You whine alot worse than Ortiz.
And you offer as much insight as a cracker. An unsalted one at that. And not one of those fancy ones...we're talking unsalted-saltine here...which I guess makes you simply an "ine". You're perfect for those too sick or old to be able to stomach anything else. Congrats.
