A-Rod-zor?
October 19th, 2007 by czar

On your run-of-the-mill, let’s sign Slappy McBluelips talk:

I still don’t see how paying a guy $25-30 million until he’s 38-40 after a career season who all Sox fans were calling “the choker” a week ago is a brilliant move.

If you want A-Rod fine, but don’t go “HAHAHA A-ROD TEH CHOKEZOR!!11″ in game threads and then turn around and say “WE BETTER GET A-ROD OR ILL KILL SOMEONE!!11″

I’m still up for finding the first baseman myself. Cost relative to production will be lower and you take Youk from 1B (where is he below average- average offensively) to 3B where he becomes a top 10 MLB 3B. I’m not sure the FA options out there, but trades with chips such as Crisp/Ellsbury, Lester, Bowden, are options and you can save the money to throw at the Johan Santana’s of the world.

Of course, I don’t necessarily find it feasible to really debate whether or not to sign A-Rod when Mike Lowell is still our 3B, A-Rod hasn’t opted out, and oh yeah, we’re in the ALCS. Guess it passes the time.
