OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Dotel DL'ed
Clark brought up, retroactive to Tuesday, May 17.
J. Clark, again? Why? They didn't use last time.
"J.Clark, again? Why?"
I'm going to qualify my comments first by saying I'm a Hatty fan thru and thru.
Renobill - I agree with you completely. I'm a big Hatte fan and would trade Durazo before I traded him. And I would bring Johnson up to take Ruby's spot.
I think Hatteberg is more than just a player to Billy. It is my understanding Beane wants him to step right from the field into the GM's office as an assistent. So I doubt he'll be traded.
dj- still some question on Kielty's ribs? He is starting tonight in right and batting 5th.
It would be a big mistake to keep Hatteburg instead of Ruby. Ruby is a much better hitter and has a much greater upside.
Threepeat - my only argument on that would be that Durazo most likely won't be here next year anyway....and you're right....there is more upside to him and he'd be more attractive in a trade then Hatte.....thus netting us a better player(s).
Front Office?........Shit make him the Hitting Instructor.
The Byrnes debate rages on, while the player who
is Dotel going in the DL necessarily a bad thing? I'd love to see what Street can do. If he impresses, bye-bye Dotel, bye-bye contract, and hello to some help on the cheap.
I agree about Dotel, this might be a blessing in disguise. Hopefully Street takes the job and runs with it. As for Durazo, I just don't see this great upside. He can't run, can't play the field, all he is great at is taking walks and watching strike three looking.
beaneball, you forgot how well he swings at those low and outside pitches with his short arms.
That's a good point, Eyleenn. Although with so many closers getting hurt this year (Gagne, Mota, Percival, Borowski, Tsao, Benitez, Izzy, etc.) there may be a bigger market than normal, and we all know how BB loves to exploit market inefficiencies to the team's advantage.
