But the problem is he will just keep rebuilding. Eventually he has to pay some of these players. I might not say that Swisher was one of them, but eventually they have to stop building players for other teams.


Without increased payroll, he'll never do anything with any players, other than build the team and rebuild the team and rebuild the team... and on and on. Only way the team wins the WS is if they get very, very lucky, kinda like the Marlins a few years back.

Pretty hard to beat a team that's spending $150 million when you spend less than $50 million.


in that case trade them to the giants rather than someone else in the AL :mrgreen:


hehe...that what I'm talking about :mrgreen:

I was listening to KNBR this morning and Dave Flemming had mentioned that the Fremont thing was far from a done deal. I thought it was?

thats true, street can stay. but i do think hes an overrated closer. dazzled opposing hitters in his rookie year, but the effect was gone after that
