    Having a no to low ranged 2Bman is not something I even want to consider.If Chavis is the hitter many think he will become, he can DH after JD opts out or play 1B after HRam fails to vest.

    Sometimes, the right decision is made even if the outcome is not the one we wanted.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."
