I agree with the timing issue, but he’s hardly a claim risk in the event he were placed on waivers. I like Martin and he’s a good story, but he’s hardly more desirable than the spot he would occupy, though even now, there are several guys I’d dump before him.
Lopez,, Nunez, Sulser, Wynns, Eshelman off the top o’ me head.
Yeah when someone puts a gun to your head you will tend to do whatever they want to remove the danger of said gun that is about to kill you. The political angle means nothing in the overall scheme of things anyway. Give me an owner who wants to and knows how to win......and will do what it takes to do so.....period. Who that guy is in the city right now.....I don't have the slightest clue. I doubt it is any of the aforementioned. Plank has much bigger problems to worry about with UA, I highly doubt he is in any position to be acquiring multi billion dollar assets. Bisciotti has already said the lack of cost control with the way baseball is set up is pretty much a non starter for him.
