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.
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.
