If they stick with Betancourt, I might legit cry.

Who could blame you? Getting rid of him was the best part of the Greinke trade.

I would cry too… but then I’d get out the pitchforks and torches and get a mob together heading straight for Doug’s office.

I think Gaby Sanchez would fit well in Milwaukee. Miami just has to sign a big bopper first.

Doubt Furcal will go to the Brewers. They will pursue Reyes or
Rollins because they have extra cash to pursue bigger FA.

Why does everyone think the Brewer’s have money to spend with Fielder’s contract coming off the books?  Don’t you people realize that raises are due to Weeks, Hart, Braun, and Gallardo.  That’s where the $15 mil that Prince made last year is going.  The Brewer’s would be lucky if they got a guy like Furcal.  Hopefully they don’t have to overpay to get him.

Didn’t Braun just sign a big contract a year or two ago? I say use the savings from Prince to lock up Grienke.

I hope they can extend Greinke.  I have no clue what he would be looking for in an extension.  Maybe 5/80?

They did draw almost 300,000 more fans this year than last.  That would have to help payroll increase some…

Bye Aramis.  I’ll enjoy watching you lollygag for another team and get paid well to do it.  I don’t think you’re worth a squirt of piss.

How quick you forget.   He was one of the best players for the Cubs for just under a decade.

Pickings have been very thin the last decade.

Alou and Derek Lee were very productive though.

He hasn’t given up but he appears to have moved on…huh?? Is his favorite song Hot N’ Cold by Katy Perry or something?

What did Fielder make last year? 17M?? add 3M and sign him for 3 years. Not much a market out there

Prince’s big thing is that you’re getting him in his prime. If you sign him for only 3 years, he’s going to expect a much higher rate annually, since he’s giving up the big upside to signing him to a long-term deal.

He made $15.5 last year.  You’re dreaming if you think he’ll sign for 3/60.  Go back to your little fantasy land.

He already turned down a 5/100 from the Brewers.  Why would he even consider a contract for less years and the same money? 

3 years 9 months ago

Not to mention they would like to lock of Greinke or possibly Marcum… and need to.

No way either of those guys get traded.

Yeah, they’re not untouchable by any stretch.  If the Marlins accepted Fiers and another prospect for Sanchez, I’d do the happy dance.  Problem is they won’t.

Thornburg or Fiers alone are not enough to get Sanchez, though they do want pitching.  Neither Thornburg nor Fiers are untouchable.  If they somehow get Pujols in Miami, then they will have Pujols, Sanchez, Morrison who can play 1B and they are more interested in trading Morrison.  Nonetheless, Sanchez does not have the upside and that Morrison does given age and power.
