    BTW, AJ ELLIS IS NOT A SIMILIAR COMP, BUT A SUPERIOR COMP.  HE ROUTINELY HAD OBP OVER 400.  NARVEAZ DOESN'T.  ELLIS MINOR LEAGUE OPS IS 785.  ABOUT 100 POINTS HIGHER THAN NARVAEZ.  SO AGAIN, ALL YOU ARE DOING IS PRESENTING FLAWED OPINIONS BASED ON FALSE LOGIC AND FAULTY ANALYSIS   >

    What guys did at SIMILAR AGES is the only valid way to compare minor leaguers.  Using Ellis' entire minors career #'s is bogus as he understandably padded them between 26 and 29.
    At age 23, Narvaez had 665 OPS in A+, Ellis 664 in A+. At age 24, Ellis had 708 OPS in A+,  Narvaez 621 in AAA and 687 majors.  Comparable. The end.








    YOU AND A CERTAIN SOMEONE NEED TO REALIZE THAT THE GAME STILL NEEDS TO BE PLAYED AND YOUR APATHY IS NOT AN ARGUMENT. >

    Games can't be played with Soto and Narvaez ?   They'll be suspended due to "Catcher Inadequacy" ?   What about the 34 games Narvaez caught last year ?  They weren't actual games ?




    I just saw a post from a Sox fan asking what he expected for 2017, he put "ugly".  Fans know what's coming - they don't need any more "win now" type pickups.

    <<Braves signed 34 year old Kurt Suzuki this winter
    The Diamondbacks also signed a 34 year old cathcer.>>
    Suzuki signed for $ 1.5 mil and Mathis, I believe, was a minor league deal.
    Just like Sox signed 34 year old Soto.  Yes, you need a couple guys to wear the face mask and big glove who won't embarrass themselves, but as cheaply as possible.   No, you do not imitate contenders and spend $ 5-8 mil on a guy to shore up a weakness..
    If Wieters would work for Soto/Suzuki money or slightly more, fine.  But if he would be willing to go that low, he'd have a job by now.

    THE KARK STANDS CORRECTED


    ELLIS WAS COMPARABLY TO NARVAEZ THRU AGE 25.


    BUT THEN, THE KARK WANTS TO GET RID OF SOTO, NOT NARVAEZ.


    *******************


    BTW, ITS FALSE LOGIC TO ASSUME WIETERS WON'T GO AS LOW AS 2 OR 3MIL.


    5 DAYS UNTIL SPRING TRAINING.  IT WOULD BE FOOLISH TO THINK THAT HIS DEMANDS WOULD BE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THEY WERE DECEMBER 5TH.


    BUT WHO KNOWS.  WIETERS WOULDN'T BE THE FIRST PLAY TO WATCH HIS CAREER DYE DUE TO AN UNWILLINGNESS TO ACCEPT HE JUST AIN'T WORTH MEGA MILLIONS ANY MORE.


    SO LET'S ALL PRAY THE WHITE SOX GIVE HIM A VALENTINE'S DAY PRESENT NEXT TUESDAY AND HE ACCEPTS THE $2.5MIL OFFER

    Sure, because guys have never sat out for part of a season rather than take what they believed to be an insulting offer.

    I'm praying he'll accept some offer so we can stop talking about him.  To paraphrase Churchill, never before has so much time been sacrificed for so little.
