Jordy Mercer?

Recommended Posts

He's a replacement-level player -- 0.1 WAR in 2018 -- and his defense has declined precipitously over the last few years.  But Astute Al Avila was able to get him for a mere $5.25 million.

Brilliant!

Ah.  I see that others are as enthusiastic about him as I am.

My getting the hang of this Appropriate Forum thing is still a work in progress.

Younger and leaner!  

Next thing you know, we'll be signing Ian Kinsler and trading Nick Castellanos.  Because...younger and leaner!

Look, noob, we celebrate big ticket acquisitions with their own special thread around here.  Don't pretend that this is your first rodeo.

You forgot to mention that Ackley killed the Tigers as well.  That has to be worth something.

It's true.  I saw him get a home run against them in spring training.

So if Avila really was trying to save $$ as order by ChrisI then he would have signed him to save gas $$?

You’ve got that backwards. Chris I said they don’t need to cut money and we are just biding our time until the salaries start flowing again. 

But we do need a couple more white guys for the suburban moms to get excited about after we cut McCann and Wilson because their leadership was too high.
