When you said "no", Rizzo called up his buddy at the Post and got them to write a column calling you out for being cheap.
And you know this how?
He said as much
Well obviously I don't care much for Ted Lerner but he does have the power to crap can Rizzo at any time and I guarantee that if Lerner finds out with absolute certainty that Rizzo was the leak we'll be shopping for a new GM.
Right, my point was it's not simply a case of deciding one player is currently better than the other for certain people that make decisions with this team. If I gave the impression that right now, today, Gio isn't significantly better than Burley I apologize because that's not true.
So we agree that he's better. He's obviously younger. He's under team control for four years. But Buerhle is the better option because he's more expensive? I'd also say that trading for four years of arbitration with a good left handed starter isn't exactly the cheapest way out either.
Boswell is full of crap and is taking credit for a trade that was already all locked up.
Unless you are Boz's son or agent you are smoking crack to think that he had anything to do with anything.
Glad I logged in today !
Coming from Ted Lerner's illegitimate son, I find this laughable.
Besides, I never said Boswell had "anything to do with anything". All I posted was a laughing smiley because I find PANatsFan's transparency funny.
The thing is, this trade doesn't prove LAC or LANC. It really makes no difference to the Lerners (4 million, but not really a difference)
If this trade is the last big move of the winter than we will enter the season with a lower payroll than last year, so you are right that this move was irrelevant to the discussion of whether ownership is cheap. Although Boz has introduced a new twist that the Lerners are too controlling in baseball matters. I fully expect another big move that will bring payroll up closer towards the other teams in the division; the question is whether the running debate shifts from the Lerners are cheap to the Lerners are micromanaging everything.
