    I think that the better JBJ hits lessons the chances of him being moved significantly. He hits - Boston keeps him - I'd be happy.

    The comp is.... (assuming we tradde JBJ for a SP'er or JBJ & Wright or Johnson for a SP'er)

    Offense:

    More PAs from HRam/Moreland/Nunez or maybe Travis/Swihart vs JBJ's bat

    Beni's D in CF vs JBJ

    JMart's D in LF vs Beni's

    The SP'er we get vs Johnson/Wright.Velazquez

    I can see a case where the trade would be worth it. As much as I am a huge JBJ fan, I'm not against trading anyone, if it makes us overall, but with out IF defense already pretty bad off, I'm not sure weakening 2 OF positions is the direction we should go.

    If we can assume the offense would be better with Nunez/Moreland/HRam over JBJ and that differential is close to the same value as the loss on defense, then whatever pitcher we might get could certainly tip the balance of value from a JBJ trade to thegood.

    I suggested Salazar at one time. If Salazar got hurt (again), what then?


    Ha! Lol Salazar IS hurt again. That’s funny

Her husband was, she said through her tears, a violent man. Once, she said, he tried to strangle her with an electrical cord. Once he locked her in the basement. Another time, when he was furious and she locked herself in a room, he used a power saw to cut through the door. Once he even put a gun, cocked, to Tonya's head as she quaked, clasping little Catherine in her arms.
    Holy shit. That man should have been in jail.

    "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."
