Dumb and Dumberer


As if this off season hasn't been bad enough,now they trade a spark plug kind of a guy in Marco Scutaro. What they got in return is not worth mentioning. Scutaro was a fine fundamental player that could do the little things. He had a good eye at the plate, and was one of the games better hitting SS. They couldn't have gotten more then that for him?
If they had had enough commom sense, they would have batted Ellsbury further down in the lineup to take advantage of his power and used Scutaro to lead off.. The funny thing is, I knew they would do this. I hoped they wouldn't but knew they would

Scut would be a good leadoff man. They could have picked up any number of pitchers,(Maholm) so they would not have to trade this guy. Now they have 6 million to play with, but Oswalt won't sign for that. Oswalt doesn't resemble the pitcher he once was,and I'm not sure he would worth it pitching every five days, while Scut would have played everyday. On top of which would be the challenge of coming to the AL, and the Eastern Division,and having the DH to face. . Now, they have to take Aviles, who could have platooned with Sweeney, and put him at short,with Punto. Punto and Aviles are bench guys, not starters. What they should try to do now, is pry Hanley Ramarez out of Florida, but that won't happen.His salary would be to high. If not that, they should sign Javier Vasquez. I don't even want to hear about Iglesius...This team is not so good at hitting as to put an automatic out in the line up. They already have two near automatic outs in Saltamachia, and Crawford. The ripple effect will be Sweeney playing every day and hitting .190 against LHders.Unbelivable!
