  1. And it probably wasn’t well spent money, but it beats losing him I guess.
  2. I think he will start a game or two a week. I think he will pinch run from time to time. I think he will be a defensive replacement most nights that he isn’t starting. That may create a chance for him to bat late in a game if a lead isn’t held. My belief is unless you bring in another veteran, there just isn’t enough playing time to replace him with someone from our minor leagues, because that person may have better numbers, but they would still benefit more from getting every day playing time.
  3. They had the chance to start him twice last week when Kole was on paternity leave and he didn’t start. The team knows exactly what he is at this point. Rengifo who has the same batting average (basically) is starting ahead of him.
  4. That is a pretty stupid quote. That isn’t a dig at you at all beatles, it just is inaccurate. The last part makes it sound like the Angels will know tomorrow when he will be back. They aren’t going to know until he is healed and making progress doing baseball activities.

    Are you kidding me?

    To me those two sentences are not mutually exclusive. We may not have a replacement that can equal his production, but it doesn’t mean he can’t bring a piece that combined with what we do have to replace him doesn’t make us a stronger team next season.

    Silver Lining - Luis Rengifo

    So is he hurting the franchise playing once a week? When the alternative is bringing up an actual prospect and stunt their development

    "Tickets Sold" - 34,177 Monday night

    Probably the easiest “guess the OP of all time”. Which is saying something since this place used to have @halothunder.

    Silver Lining - Luis Rengifo

    Why do people keep saying this? What if he starts twice a week now instead of the one game he started last week. Hell he isn’t starting today when Rengifo traveled today or last night to get here.
  10. Your comparison would be a lot more accurate if you included, sometimes you buy a snickers and inside the package is a piece of shit. Because yea, that is what free agency has been like for starting pitchers. Kershaw was never a free agent. Corbin has 5 3/4 years to prove the trend continues. Morton doesn’t really count because we aren’t talking about short term deals. Lester qualifies. Greinke does so far and did with his Dodger contract, but the remainder of that deal will be awful as he is still owed about $125 million for the next three years after factoring in the deferred money.
