Ty Cobb maybe wasn't a completely terrible person, or no worse than some of his peers. But he wasn't exactly a great guy. He did some things that got him relative slaps on the wrist that would probably have resulted in jail sentences today.
I think it was more worth to SD because of their farm system. They are going to have elite talent making very little money for a while. That helps when you have these types of deals.
That being said, I don't think the length of the deal is good for anyone.
Wish we would’ve just taken the money we paid Iglesias(2.5 million), and just given it to prospect from the Dominican. We would’ve likely gotten back a player better than a barely top 30 prospect/low ceiling prospect.
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.
