I Quit

Postby echrisl » Fri Dec 08, 2006 7:03 pm

Seriously, after the winter meetings, it has become 100% clear to me that Bill Bavasi is the worst GM in the major leagues.

I hereby renounce my status as a Mariners fan until such time as Bavasi is fired. Who's with me?

P.S. Go Astros, my new favorite team!

I'd love to join you, but I'll always bleed navy and teal (well unless/until they change their color scheme). But you're right, Bavasi is terrible and needs to go. He's got no vision for the future, and he's not even making stupid moves to win now. I mean if he was mortgaging the future or something in order to try to win next year, part of me could live with that, but it's like he's stuck in no-man's land. Not enough to compete now, not putting pieces into place to win next year or even a few years down the road.

It's a tough time to be an M's fan, I'll give you that. :-/

I really don't have another team to switch to- the situation in Baltimore or DC isn't much better. Probably wouldn't have the heart to anyway. Guess I'll just have to settle for whatever success the Seahawks achieve this year. :-[

Jose Vidro ... I see they're continuing their overpaid and aged infielder/DH fetish ...

I think I made the right decision.

I don't have a team to switch to either. Seasons like the upcoming one are what make me happy I'm in a fun fantasy league.

I guess it's back to being a laughingstock like in the good ol' days.

What you dont' think Horacio and Miguel will make their rotation best in the AL West? LOL!! Watch Soriano will turn into a major stud in ATL.

Here's what the F**K i don't get. We give Batista like 8 million and Horacio whatever. Wouldn't it have been a lot better to have signed guys like Ohka, Weaver, Lawrence, Thomson, and kept Soriano?!

I mean is it just me?! %-6
