Soooo… hitters, apx 2006 win value from offense, new contract annual value

Scott Spiezio, 2, $2.3m
Frank Thomas, 4, $9m

By the way, here’s the contracts of Frank Thomas. The 2006 base salary of $500k was so low I felt obligated to include the incentives he made, but otherwise this is straight:

    I’d flip Reed for Jacobs in a second, esp. if it meant a Sexson deal was imminent, which I imagine it would have to be.

    A Sexson deal or a Broussard deal, either way. Jacobs could 1B or DH.

    Mike Jacobs, lefty batting, righty mashing, first baseman, who would be cheap, but is 26 years old already. Don’t we have one of those already, well his 4 year younger doppleganger?

    Check this out, from CBS’ Willie Bloomquist page:

    There’s another one! but he actually switch hits. Why hasn’t Hargrove demanded Alfredo be acquired yet?

    Anyway, my point is, Is Reed an upgrade over Amezaga? Why would they even consider this trade? Do we throw in Mark Lowe’s elbow?

    wow, i sure messed up that blockquote. I’d appreciate somebody delete that post for me.

    I find it disgusting to look at.

    99 – Yes, I read it this morning. I just spent 5 minutes looking for it in the usual places, but I can’t find it. It wasn’t an offical quote, just a reference to ‘insider info’, so take it with a grain of salt.

    The link might have been on a site I’d be afraid to post links to from here, so you may have to locate it yourself. If I find it elsewhere, I’ll throw the link up.

    99 – Sorry, after looking some more, I couldn’t find it. I swear that I read this somewhere today, but when even combing through my history doesn’t turn it up (aside from one site I frequent where I’d have to go through dozens of posts to doublecheck – no thanks), I don’t know what to say. Unless it was taken down from a site where I read it, I don’t know why I couldn’t find it in my history. I’m 100% confident that I *did* read that, but my source will have to remain a mystery.

    My apologies – I’m not trolling or making stuff up, but I honestly can’t find the original article. If someone else finds this rumor mentioned elsewhere (and not just a reference to me posting it here, but something that mentions a source of some kind), please post a link here. Sorry, guys.
