Sexson to the Dback ... I love rumors .....

Postby wrveres » Fri Oct 31, 2003 5:28 pm

I hope you all don't mind me floating my rumors out here... If not, I guess, ....well you don't have to read them . :-B lol ...

Personally I think Sexson would just explode in ARI ... He could quickly become the top 1B in the game.... And a FA year ... wowza ...

Sexson could be available to D-Backs
By Ed Price, Tribune
As the Diamondbacks explore ways to help their offense this winter, Milwaukee Brewers slugger Richie Sexson will be one target, perhaps the top one.

A source familiar with negotiations between the Brewers and Sexson — who last season hit 45 homers and drove in 142 runs, playing every inning of every game at first base — said Sexson is unlikely to sign a extension with Milwaukee.

That will tempt the Brewers to trade Sexson. But their desire to get significant talent in return, along with Sexson’s $8.6 million salary and impending free agency, would make any deal with the D-Backs complicated.

And Arizona would have to weigh giving up young pitching for a player they might keep for only one season — although his right-handed bat would be an excellent fit in the Diamondbacks’ power-starved lineup.

"I haven’t been ordered to move him," Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin said Wednesday. "I have to look at it from a general manager’s standpoint: What’s the best thing to do long-term for the organization? . . . I have to be open-minded if clubs ask about any of our players."

The D-Backs and Brewers, who also have to consider the implications of trading a popular player, have talked and will probably speak again when general managers convene for meetings in mid-November in Phoenix.

Arizona general manager Joe Garagiola Jr. has spoken with a number of teams since the season ended, and a power bat, he said, "is one of the areas I’m indicating" interest in acquiring.

The Brewers’ chief need, Melvin said, is young pitching. The D-Backs will rely on some of that next year but could have enough (Oscar Villarreal, Jose Valverde, Chris Capuano, John Patterson, Edgar Gonzalez, Andrew Good) to be able to put together a deal.

Arizona would also need to move salary, back to Milwaukee or in another deal, to be able to afford Sexson.

"Richie is an attractive player to a number of teams," Melvin said.

Most of the interest, Melvin said, has come from National League teams. Arizona’s NL West rivals Los Angeles and San Francisco are thought to be seeking a first baseman.

They could get Palmeiro a lot cheaper and get almost the same numbers.

maybe for 1 year. But the Dback's would look to lock the Big Sexy up right away. Just like they did with RJ, Curt and if I remember right, Gonzo.

That would make Sexson into even more of a monster - the BOB is pretty darn small. It'd have to move him up in drafts.

Assuming the d'backs can pick up some (and by some, I mean any) other hitting. Brady Anderson, er, I mean Luis Gonzo can't hit like he used to.

I thought Gonzo had a nice bounce back season. 2002 was down overall but '03 was solid. His HR's RBi's and Runs were the same as '02 but his BA was up. His SLG was up and his OBP remained consistent for his entire ARZ career. Alot of The Runs/Rbis/HR's can be contibuted to the protection he had in the lineup. I'd argue that Sexson will provide better protection than Shea Hillenbrand and Alex Cintron.

He was a Monster in '01 ... when he had protection.
