In response to Softlaw1's comment:
BS calling time, for a puveyor of blathering bilge.
Tell the Board, right now, what you budget for the Gomes FA negotiations?
I don't like Gomes except on the budget I just provided in detail. Gomes is coming off a near career high season in a part-time role. He's 32 years old and his median OPS average is nothing but career platoon material. Base 3 x 2 is my budget for the Gomes negotiations, who is likely to find a bug eyed incompetent GM who'll bid as high as base 8 to 10 x 2.
Gomes is just an example of how sorry big labor is during nearly every FA class market. Almost without exception, if a player is worth long and big base costs, he never makes it to the FA auction block.
I've detailed my flow chart on the platoon OF role for 2013, on the other Gomes thread.
I'm still trying to figure out what a "puveyor" is.
I think I have a hit on my "pu" meter.
Who should I report it to?
btw, I suggested what I would offer on the more pertinent thread.
