Would someone please defend Andy MacPhail

Recommended Posts

It can't be done. His FA signings are beyond atrocious. This year, last year the year before. Joke. And we are the ones that the Joke is being played on!

The man sure does have a knack for completely misjudging the FA market and making poor signings. The good FA signings he's made have been few and far between.

It's amazing to see how the FAs he's passed on have done - Mark Teixeira, Matt Holliday, Adrian Beltre... And instead we have Garrett Atkins, Derrek Lee etc...

And he keeps spending money on ineffective relievers. For all the crap Flanny and Duquette got for that 42 million they spent, at least Bradford and Walker performed for most of their contracts. Gregg and Gonzalez have been disasters from Day 1.

By passing on Teixera, do you mean that he didn't offer an insane contract to land one player when the organization was more than one guy away? Teixera wasn't comng to Baltimore.... period. And we still submitted an offer.

I'm not saying that MacPhail is doing a great job. The Minors are a freakin disaster right now and the nepotism with his nephew is just sickening. The guy is incompetent... yet he keeps landing on his feet with his uncle at his side.

That is all I meant with this and other comments made he on his results. He can't buy the bats or the freaking arms. Even when overpaying. The agents and other Front Offices are laughing all the way to the playoffs. How did he win in Minnesota?

IIRC, he inherited a heck of a squad and basically didn't have to do a whole heck of a lot to build them.

The way our minor league system has deteriorated is inexcusable. That's the biggest failure of MacFail right now.

So, all I hear around here is Bullpen arms in FA are for the most part a crapshoot and people complain when we crap out. Come on. If Andy signs 3 guys off the scrap heap and they are horrible people would still be complaining about that too. Which I guess we did and you are(Rapada,Accardo,)
