    I think that's far less important to players in baseball than other sports. Its very hard to predict the strength of teams more than a year into the future, and even that is very unreliable.

    So happy he didn't wind up in Texas. I can honestly cheer for the Indians and wish him best of luck there. I'll definitely be sad to see the parrot go though.

    If Gibby resists the urge to be a retard and plays Pearce every day instead of platooning with Smoak, I'd wager that Pearce alone puts up more WAR than Edwin.

    I've noticed. At first I had trouble deciding if he's trolling but then he has these moments where he vents all his dumb thoughts.

    Good choice selectively ignoring that Edwin is a DH and thus extracts WAR out of the hardest position to extract WAR from

    Very nice bias posting

    Right I know what you're saying he it was his call but his Agent probably told him to turn it down to get more money elsewhere... clearly that wasn't the case. This screams what happened with Steven Drew a few years ago when he turned down the Boston offer and he signed back for less and it came out that he turned it down because Boras told him he'll get money elsewhere

    I don't really know why you'd assume incompetence from Kinzer instead of assuming he had a decent handle on the situation and presented the facts to Edwin honestly and let him make up his mind.

    Well he's a pretty bad agent. He went on the JB show like 5 times in the last month basically telling everyone how the negotiations were going. There are so many things he could have done better.
