Baseball Blogs Weigh In: Wells, Butler, Weeks, Cubs

The Brewers signed Jim Edmonds to a minor-league contract one year ago today, even though the outfielder did not play at all during the 2009 season. He hit a more than respectable .286/.350/.493 with eight homers in 240 plate appearances before being traded to the Reds for Chris Dickerson.

“Cubs Billy Goat Blog wonders if next year’s Cubs will be better than last year’s.”

The Angel blogs are making the Wells for Napoli trade sound sunny while the Rangers blog makes the Napoli for Francisco trade look foolish. The glass is half full…the glass is half empty. Blah. I disagree with the assessment that cutting ties with Frank Francisco is a bad thing. I disagree that there is a void that can only be filled with uncertainty. That gives Frank too much credit. He lost the closer job because he became unreliable and he was “adequate” as a set up guy. A guy with that resume can and will be easily replaced.

Especially when you consider Napoli, like most power hitters, has thrived hitting in Texas.
