    Boog Powell? Sounds like someone on Kenny's wish list somewhere between the Alomar brothers! Maybe Minnie Minoso has trade value... Rolling Eyes

    Bummer that a certain Chicago team didn't have the minor league resources to pull off this deal. I guess they had no use for Viciedo.

    They had the resources to pull off the deal, but it would have cost them Tim Anderson. No thank you, and I like Zobrist.

    "Second chance" ?  More like his 5th chance and counting.  Yeah, at $ 1.5 - 2 mill Gordo would be an OK utility infielder.  But even in that role his value is limited because he's hardly played any SS.   I'd let Sanchez be the backup IFer at $ 500 K.  He's played some SS, hit decently as a 22 yr old in AAA, and didn't embarrass himself in his first 100 big league AB's. Let him get 250-300 ab's this year spelling Bonafacio, Ramirez and Gillaspie.
    IMO, those AB's are better used on a guy who might amount to something than to a guy who's shown convincingly over 3000 PA's that he doesn't amount to jack shit.

    Now that's funny!!!!!

    BTW Gentleman, I believe my suggestion was to give Beckham a minor league deal with a spring training invite. I never stated he should be handed the job no questions asked.

    I fail to see how having Beckham around hurts the team. I guy in this discussion apparently has no problem keeping 2 or 3 stiff reliever for a completely unneccessary 8 man pen. Beckham helps a team a hell of a lot more than a #8 reliever

    Define "help".   Besides, don't nearly all teams keep 7 relievers, not 8.

    Then you better get a manager who doesn't constantly play the lefty-righty crap through the late innings, or the KARK ends the season with 100+ losses.
