Do we need a Jayson Werth Unappreciation or Werth needs to be benched thread for 2012 or do we bump up the one from last year? It was 34 pages and it started on June 12th...
aspenbubba, shockingly, got the original post in that thread.
Why shockingly? Am I really a SSS? I call it like I see it. I want the team to win and I don't get crazed unless there is no hope . I have been lumped with Welsh as an old timer and yes I grew up with the Senators. I was so infuriated by the Denny McLain trade that I never went to another game that following last season.Is this contract of the same proportions? Probably not , only because we didn't give up any players from our core , but it will affect the team for many years . It is just one position resulting in a black hole and it could probably be "hidden" on a championship calibre team.
I am not nor have I ever called for Rizzos' firing but missing out on Michael Bourn and the Gio trade ( which is way too early to judge) could also loom over the team as almost potentially disastrous as the Werthless signing . I am not sure how you gauge the resultant qualities of a GM. What is the acceptable averages" from trades and signings? Is it 50 % 60 , 70?
