    Please no Mark Ellis. Thats one of those players Fredi would bat 2nd just because. It would drive men crazy.

    *Drive me crazy. But I’m sure it would drive men crazy as well.

    Nobody throw stones at me but the idea of trading Kimbrel is tempting. It could bring alot back. I mean it’s not like we use him in important situations anyway. And I’m not being sarcastic when I make that point. Dead serious.

    In a article about best A bargains for 2014:

    Omar Infante – Estimated at 3 years/25 million

    From the article:

    “Omar Infante is the most underrated utility player in all of baseball. He can simply play wherever he’s put on the field, and does so with a decent bat.

    In 2013, Infante batted .318/.345/.450 with 10 home runs and 51 RBI [ in 118 games/453 AB - my addition MiM]. He’s the classic example of a part-time player playing well enough to earn a full-time role.

    While second base is his primary position, whoever signs him would be able to use him almost anywhere on the field, as he’s played all positions but catcher and pitcher.”

    So, at 3 years/25 million, do you want him?

    Considering the unknown return dates of Pena & Pastornicky from injury and not knowing when/if La Stella will be ready for prime time, would you want him starting @ 2B?

    @32

    Was supposed to be “best FA bargains”…

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Very funny…

    Omar Infante is also listed in an article titled: “2014 MLB Free Agency: 15 Overrated Players About to Get Overpaid”

    Guess it is all about how you look at it…

    not much chit chat here on the ws… just wondering who people are rooting for?
    I for some reason want the redsox to lose, even though everybody in japan is pulling for them. I am indifferent about the cards, despite the infield fly stuff. In the NL I despise the giants, mets, phils, nats, dodgers much more than cards. no reason. just like you cant explain the one you love, sometimes you cant explain the ones you don’t…

    I think the ruling on the obstruction seems wrong, even as “by the book”. Didn’t he sort of get clobbered by the runner going into third, and it was one of the reasons he missed the catch and was on the ground…then to blame him for impeding the same runner? It was all part of the same play…

    Didn’t realize how much I wanted the Red Sox to win until that homer. I got very excited.

    Good grief. Most posts from anonymous are me as a general rule.

    Rooting for the Red Sox without question. Have really grown to despise the Cards after last year.

    And Will, I agree. I get that the way the rule is written, the call was right – but none of it feels right.

    I used to like the Cardinals when they had Edmonds, Renteria and those guys. Like Steve I’ve grown to despise them. I think I just got tired of the Tony LaRussa show and the “best baseball town” nonsense. I’ve never been to St. Louis. I’ve been to Boston and it’s hard to imagine St. Louis is any more of a baseball town than Boston. The atmosphere around Fenway is like going to an SEC football game.

    Also I’ve always had a soft spot for the Red Sox since they hired Bill James and had the guts to hire a 28-year-old Theo Epstein as GM. Plus Fenway is just an amazing place to watch a game.

    Hmmmm. Red Sox bring in their closer in 8th inning. Who does that sort of thing? Oh yeah World Series teams. I forgot.

    @47 – Great stuff from Mark Bradley. And echoes a lot of the sentiment on the board from the last couple of months that regular season often has little bearing on the post season.

    Curt Says:

    And how important postseason pitching really is.
