    Calling him expensive is pretty funny.

    Umm..yes, you are wrong. Several teams treat the position as of its a full time position. That at bat stats is a fact you can’t argue against. That’s the definition of “full time”.

    Not really..you showed he’s not elite. Obviously. No one has argued otherwise.

    Hays and Santander could be better hitters but they aren’t now and if you want to assume that those guys will get better, Nunez could as well. Sure, Stewart benefits but he also could get at bats regardless if Nunez is here. I can’t imagine Mancini is an everyday player right off the bat.

    You are wrong. Just go look at the 2019 DH stats for example..several teams in the AL had the same guy taking up a large majority of the at bats, with many of them getting 500+ at bats and that doesn’t include Alvarez, who the Astros brought up later in the season and was their exclusive DH for the rest of the year (he had just under 400 at bats).

    Your DH doesn’t have to be versatile.

    They get those at bats whether Nunez is here or not. The presence of Nunez changes absolutely nothing about your post. His presence only becomes an issue IF Diaz is up and IF everyone is producing and healthy.

    And likely spend more money doing it.

    This doesn’t make sense. DH is a full time position. None of those guys will be a full time DH until Diaz is here and even then, injuries could still make none of a full time DH. Just because a spot start here and there could occur isn’t even something to mention. If you are arguing that these guys are all so much more valuable than Nunez, you are doing it because they are better in the field and on the bases...if you make one of them a full time DH, you take away a lot of that “extra value”. At that point, you are then saying, who is the more valuable hitter. Well, only Mountcastle and likely Mancini are better and more valuable hitters than Nunez. Santander and Hays aren’t. Iglesias maybe is but his career says he’s not. We have no idea about Diaz yet. Diaz isn’t likely to be on the team for a while anyway.

    Of course no one is going to pay him 2+ million. I would argue the Os didn’t need to either. I would also argue that Nunez was worth more to the Os than other teams. The flaw in the arguments being made here are that you are looking at his worth around the league. That’s completely irrelevant. I’m not arguing that he’s a real valuable player. I’m not arguing that teams are clamoring for him. I never once said teams wanted him or he will be an easy trade candidate or anything remotely like that. Everyone is completely misrepresenting that. All I said was that his offensive production is worth that money for this team. We have a boatload of question marks and very few answers to those questions and for that tiny amount of money, it was worth keeping him around. The Os are, unquestionably, being cheap. This is definitely a money thing and it shouldn’t be. This is a team that less than 5 years ago spent 160M on payroll and now they may not spend 60M.

    It’s a supply and demand thing. Whether someone offers X amount of dollars is irrelevant. The Os And their structure, could use his bat and his production. Most teams don’t have that combo of at bats and money they can spend on a player with his skill set. The Os do...and the idea that other teams chose not to do it is irrelevant to his value to this organization. The idea that they may be looking into Puig (conjecture) and brought on a LH DH type at REINFORCES the idea that this is salary driven, not producing driven imo. My only argument with this decision is that this isn’t solely or even largely driven by roster management despite what Elias says. He is lying for management.

    No, it absolutely is the formula and what’s he’s worth. That’s a fact. However, there are only a few teams that need a DH, so it’s not surprising that the market isn’t there..plus, you have announced that you are cutting him, so why trade for him with so little completion?
  13. Sports Guy

    Nunez DFA

    He’s worth .5-1 WAR. That’s obviously worth more than 2M
  14. Don’t we already have DJ Stewart? But yea, Nunez was all about roster flexibility and not money. Lol

    Why would you have interest in Puig and DFA Nunez? https://www.mlb.com/news/yasiel-puig-ready-to-play-2021-mlb-season
