Don't know about you...but I want Cespedes

Recommended Posts

If Gordon doesn't want our offer and Upton is also holding out for close to 20 mill and Cespedes will take the orange money sign him and Alvarez. Everyone in our lineup will have 20 + HR ability. We can still trade Wieters to Texas and use his 15.8 mill towards a starter.

Who is catcher #2 in that scenario?

I want Cespedes more than any other free agent, more than Chris Davis. He is a complete ball player

that can motivate the whole team chemistry.

Chris Russo thinks he is bad for some reason.

?Come on, guys. Have a clue in the AL - managers, have a clue! And don't sit there and tell me, 'Well you don't know, you don't watch the game.' I do watch the games. You don't, that's the problem!?

Are you attempting to make a case that Davis and Cespedes are in the same stratosphere defensively by using Chris Russo?

No. Not at all. I used to dismiss Russo actually. Now I just like that clip of him going nuts about that.

Why? It carries no weight. The defensive metrics support him as a very good LF. A bad play here or there, especially in CF. Chris Davis has looked like a below average RF and the numbers support that. The only thing you could find to support your opinion was a Chris Russo rant. I like Chris. He's entertaining and knowledgeable. More emotion than logic though.

I agree. I've grown to like him a bit as well.
