There must be a hundred threads from last winter where forum regulars were bashing the Victorino signing. They were all confident, all knowing, and adamant that Cherrington was a bozo for signing him. Have they admitted that as armchair GMs that they are only expressing their agenda ( trolling) and know very little about baseball?
I admitted I was wrong.
I like Victorino and especially his defense, but thought the 3rd year was too long and his issues vs LHPs were troubling.
Not all of us who are occaisonally critical are trolls.
You may still not be wrong Moon. I too thought that the deal was a year too long, and I still do. Lets see what he does in year 3. If he is as good then as he is now then we both should admit we were wrong.
If they win one of the next two games, then the deal is already a great move, as he is a huge reason why this team is where it is right now. Cleveland offered him 4 years & more money, so the Sox weren't going to be able to land him on a 2 year deal. I think the deal is already worth it, even if they don't win the Series, as this year has been great for most Sox fans.
Exactly. Just like the Peavy deal. He went 4-1 and helped us get to the post season. Just what he was brought in to do. Vic was a huge part of getting this team where they are. The team Ben put together this year has by far passed expectations. If they win it all it will be the best re-tooling of any team at any time in MLB. 69 wins to World Champions? It could happen.
