As compared to Melky Cabrera?
Melky is an jerk.
melky has more upside. rizzo likes upside moves.
Popped in 2004 and 2005. Admitted to it. Took it when he had a torn muscle.
offensive upside. a hell of a lot of pagan's WAR comes from his defense. Trying to measure defensive value is a bigger crapshoot than the mlb draft.
non-issue. still a good character guy. I'm not saying you think this way, but I feel that a lot of people think that every athlete who uses steroids is a dick. Then they learn that one of their favorite players tested positive a while ago and they make lame excuses and try to overlook it. steroids don't make you a dick but there are dicks who use them (A-roid).
does anyone else like how convenient and easy it is to type werth? w, e, r, and t are all right next to each other and h is just one row down and one button to the right of t.
•The Nationals had preliminary talks about a contract extension with Ian Desmond earlier this season, a source told Bill Ladson of MLB.com. Ladson adds that it would not be a surprise to see the Nats and the shortstop start up talks again this winter. Recently, Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post suggested that Desmond could be in line for a six-year, $45MM deal.•A source indicated that opposing teams have expressed interest in Tyler Moore. The Nats may also look at trading Michael Morse. Both players are best suited for first base and their fit in Washington will hinge largely on what happens with LaRoche. As it stands now, both players figure to be involved in left field alongside Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth.•The source told Ladson that there could be a possible domino effect if Adam LaRoche isn't re-signed this winter. Ryan Zimmerman could potentially be moved to first base while Anthony Rendon would be given a chance to start at third.•The same source quantified the odds of Edwin Jackson returning to the Nats at 50/50 as it seems doubtful that Rizzo would give the pitcher a long-term deal.•It's almost a given that John Lannan will be non-tendered this offseason, according to a baseball source. Lannan earned $5MM in 2012 and spent the bulk of the year in Triple-A.
http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2012/10/nationals-notes-desmond-morse-moore-jackson.htmlSo much wow thereI would love to know the teams interested in Moore.I would love to have Zimmerman at first and Rendon at third, if Rendon can hit like we all hope.Lannan not coming back is ... interesting. Couple that with the Edwin Jackson 50/50 and it's more interesting. I still want Anibal Sanchez on a 4-5 year deal at somewhere around 11-13 million per year average.
Why put an injury prone guy at the hot corner? I'd prefer Zimmerman to stay there.
We already have an injury prone guy at the corner.Rendon's injuries are ankle related. Third is the best place for him. It's also the position he's most comfortable playing.
I would love to know the teams interested in Moore.
I can't see Zim moving to 1st base anytime soon - unless there is something seriously, long term wrong with his shoulder
Or if they are really hot on Rendon and want to get him up soon and don't want him at 2B.
Yeah, I don't know - maybe. Going from very proven to very unproven for a team that just won 98 games seems very risky to me
•The source told Ladson that there could be a possible domino effect if Adam LaRoche isn't re-signed this winter. Ryan Zimmerman could potentially be moved to first base while Anthony Rendon would be given a chance to start at third.
Zimmerman is less injury prone than Rendon. And Rendon's going to be moving to his left and right frantically while diving. Plus, I already know what I'm getting at third. I don't feel comfortable moving a guy to first and replacing him with a rookie.
a prototypical slugger who hits the ball really far?
