guess your forgetting they got the best catcher in the league, and a top 5 short stop this offeason, not to mention the there's still good pitching out thereYOU really think 1 player is going to make that big of a difference? Their defense sucked, their pitching was, at times, poor. IF they'd have given the kids from the 'Pigs another year, they would have been OK.
NOW, they've got another RYAN Howard. IF Harper has a bad year, who is going to pickup that kind of debt???????? BAD move, IMHO.
How is it Ludacris?Ludicrous. I guess the baseball people have already forgotten the shitty deals like Pujols and Cabrera. Those last years of this deal are going to be wasted money.
NOT forgetting, just using logic. They traded away 3, IIRC, good catchers, in the last 2 years, already got/had a good short stop, just needed another year to come around. Poor choice, like holding on to Ryan for the last years. Must have changed management with the Yankees. Trying to buy their Championship. IF they wanted to piss away money, I could use a cash infusion.guess your forgetting they got the best catcher in the league, and a top 5 short stop this offeason, not to mention the there's still good pitching out there
Season ticket hold since 2001
I’d take that bet all day long. The league has already established that having one massive salary sets the team back a good ten years (A-Rod/Rangers, Pujols/Angels) because they have to get rid of a bunch of talent in trade and also cannot sign any other excellent players. You end up with an excited crowd for a couple of years with nothing to show for it other than jacked up concession and ticket prices.I'm sure many don't care but it will bring excitement back to Citizens Bank Park.
I got $5 to your $2 that the Phillies win the NL this year!
