    Yuni Betancourt. Ahahaha

      Betancourt is prob the best option.. Younger and cheaper

      • goredsgo 4 years ago

        you know theres a bunch of geezers on the markey when you consider betancourt “younger and cheeper”

    • Raylan Givens' Stetson 4 years ago

      I wonder if a cardboard cutout would bring better production than Betancourt…it certainly would draw more walks.

    Pujols, Buehrle, Furcal sign with Cardinals within 24 hours.

    yunis back yunis back (biggies back)

  4. He should sign with Colorado, they need a SS.

    man…tough winter to be a brewers fan…lose out on Fielder, Furcal, Rollins…and sign Yuni…

      NLCS, etc.

        Empty minor league system and 2 of 3 players traded to Royals starting next year….

  6. By resigning Betanourt, it free’s up cash to sign someone like Aramis Rameriz which would be a huge upgrade at 3B, and there could still be room to move on a 1B like Pena who will no doubt be a steal on a short term deal because of last seasons production.

      I don’t think that would be a very good move.  Yes, Aramis Rameriz would be a huge improvement over anything else we have, but I thought I heard him talk about free agency earlier, and he said that he wanted an expensive, multi-year deal (something like three years, thirty-six million or so).  I don’t think that would be great, because that’s a lot of money for someone who is past his prime and has issues with staying healthy.  Although Melvin loves spending money on players who aren’t worth it, so who knows, it could happen

    Milwaukee – The entertainment unit in my living room will sign for half the money of Yuni and you’ll get better range. Give me a call.

  8. Now the love affair that is Yuniesky Betancourt and Doug Melvin can continue.  Everything about this makes me want to vomit, Furcal probably resigns with Cards, they win division, and the Crew misses wild card by the 12+ games Yuni personally destroys with his defense.  Horrible news.

    I’m good with the Cards resigning Furcal, as long as it means dumping Theriot and giving Tyler Greene a shot.

    If the guy wants to take a discount to play a home thats cool with me.. I think thats the only way we can get Buehrle

  11. bobskube 4 years ago

    Ummm…..no.  Maybe the first two will eventually sign, but I doubt all 3 and certainly not by this time tomorrow

  12. The_BiRDS 4 years ago

    Oh trust me I would be very very shocked if all three signed.. Thats more of wishful thinking than a prediction 

  13. Matt Talken 4 years ago

    Glad to hear that’s just wishful thinking.  It’d be fun, but if you were truly making that prediction, I’d have lost a bit of faith in your posts, BiRDS. 

    I just hope Furcal gives the Cards a chance to bid after they settle the Pujols situation.  Having one of the MIF positions in solid everyday hands is something the Cardinals haven’t had since Eckstein, at least.  That MIF looks a lot better if it’s any of the other options WITH Furcal rather than two of the other options (Greene, Descalso, Theriot–who’s probably going to be non-tendered, etc.).
