Saw this on another site and thought it was interesting. I can't really make a choice between these options.

Cardinals and Matt Holliday.

Yeah, Cardinals and Matt Holliday.
Or Mets and Jason Bay, though that's not as monstrous a contract.

I thought about adding Holliday and Bay to the poll, but I decided to stick with three pitchers and a catcher who has had back problems.  I am thinking more of injury risk than performance-to-value.

EDIT: I think the risk for the Giants is that the contract might be too short.

I think the team with the biggest regrettable move this off-season is the Seattle Mariners, but it's not for the signing of Felix Hernandez.

Trading for Cliff Lee?

Milton Bradley?  I don't see how they could regret the Cliff Lee move when all they gave up was Aumont and Gillies.

If I had to choose from the 4 in the poll I would say Marines signing Hernandez, but for the entire off-season I would say Holliday singing by the Cards.

But they dumped Carlos Silva in the Bradley deal.

Silva is a terrible ballplayer, Bradley's a terrible teammate.

Remember all the outcry when the Nats didn't sign Silva? That made me the king of "I told you so"

Well, since Tim Lincecum is always stoned, HE doesn't regret anything!  :icon_mrgreen:
