I tend to agree that Sisco is not .100 worse at the big league level than he was in the minors. Seems to me that he is likely the kind of guy that you need to go with everyday. 525 ABs over for seasons means he's played sporadically at best.
The answer is so obvious that “yellow” shouldn’t even have been an option.
BTW when I first saw this I initially thought the first option was “Nate’s HAIR is called Fair.” And I was, like,”well duh. Of COURSE it’s fair. He’s Blonde.”
If we subtract the no-brainer answer, Nate’s home run would be my choice.
in 2014, even without Manny, we won 96 games, and the Royals were so lucky that I’m not sure a phalanx of archangels could have beaten them.
In 2016, we were enjoying a dead cat bounce, and even if we’d pulled off the WC game, it’s doubtful we’d have gone any farther.
But in 2012, we had a great team, we were on the rise, and the Yankees had serious problems. I’m not sure we’d have gone on to win that game 5, but golly, that would have been one of the all time sweet memories, regardless of what happened next.
The bigger impact was the repercussions of the mistake internally. I feel like Angelos got gun shy in free agency after the Albert Belle deal. But with the Glenn Davis trade they gutted the depth of a team that had trouble developing talent.
As a kid after Cal Ripken there was Boddicker , Mussina, and a whole lot of disappointment in player drafting and development.
I know most will say Chris Davis but some things cannot be measured by cold hard dollars. The Glenn Davis trade not only was lopsided with the talent the Franchise gave up for him, but also the psychological damage it did to the fan base. Glen Davis was to be the RH power hitter needed, it seemed like forever, and was thought to be a sure thing, but was not to be. I know I felt crushed for such a long time by how that turned out. We all make mistakes and both of these situations were mistakes, big time.
