Ehh, I hear what you are saying Ghost, but I dont necessarily agree. I would love Scutaro to come back as well. But 3 years is OD in my opinion. You and I know damn well he wont be an $8M player when he is 40.
Hes not an 8 mil player NOW. He was an old, mediocre MIF even at Coors before he came over. He had a historic 2nd half for us, but it wont continue. Giving a 3 year deal to a guy who will be 38 next season is idiotic. This is why i rag on Sabean all the time. He doesnt make smart decisions with money.
Yet, he's got 2 WS titles compared to however many you have as a GM. Just sayin....
Ghost. Come on man. You know when it comes to money and free agents that Sabean has been a huge bust. Yes, he has won 2 titles and we all give him credit for that. Some good trades no doubt. But free agency and contracts? FAIL.
If your overall investments pay off in winning the ultimate prize, how is that a fail dude? Individually, you may not hit on every free agent investment, I agree. But your task is to put together a TEAM by any means necessary that hoists the trophy. He's done that.
It's like saying you don't like how General so-and-so manages the military procurement process....but oh yah, he's won 2 wars. Who, but the pickiest of the picky, really cares that in one area, a guy hasn't done well if he fairly consistently wins the ultimate prize? I don't get it.
So I guess I'm saying that I can't disagree that one point, but at the end of the day, who really cares given the outcomes in 2010 and 2012?
