^ What's even funnier is he used to be a "Giants fan" and tried rubbing it in, i simply said "Good for them, are you going to temporarily jump back to your old team?"
Sorry guys, if you want to copy what the Giants did with a bunch of great pitchers i can see how you would say pitching is the main priority, but we won't add Cliff Lee so what's the point? Probably not even Kuroda.......I have to remind people that the Dodgers couldn't hit a lick after the All-Star Break, they have much bigger holes in offense/defense to fill. If you look back to when they had the best record in the league, now you have a 3B that is old, 2B that is much worse, LF is much worse. We are stuck between a rock and a hard place, nothing on the farm to help you out, no money to spend, you can try to get bargain bin players and hope you strike gold.....even the guys the Giants had are about to become expensive i'm sure in Uribe, Huff etc. Even if there were smart deals to be made as a "quick fix" i don't think we have a GM that is capable of that. This is a guy who needed a crack team of FBI Investigators to figure out Andre Ethier was a good player and should be included in the Milton Bradley deal.........despite winning several awards at ASU and being the A's Minor League PLAYER of the YEAR the previous year...
The media and fans love to go on about ownership, but didn't we just see a $100Mil team win it all? And a $60Mil team show up the party? The GM is more to blame IMO.
I would really love it if the Yankees did pull off the Cliff Lee deal, then throw $60Mil at a relic in Derek Jeter just because of fan appreciation, media hype and "intangibles", in the ALCS we saw a team that couldn't hit and these moves would not address that...unless they go up to a $300Million payroll.
