Urbina to Indians unlikely

Postby Jonathan » Wed Mar 24, 2004 3:40 pm

I'm listening to Mark Shapiro being interviewed during the Tribe game and he says Urbina hasn't picked up a ball since game 6. He said the Indians view him as not being ready until mid-May. Urbina saw it differently. Shapira said that this difference of opinion has made the signing unlikely.

Nice to see Urbina keeping himself in shape and throwing on his own. Asshat.

My one penny says he'll end up in the Burgh...it just makes sense. And will save someone (and himself) from Jose Mesa :-o

If I had to guess right now - Id say he goes to Japan. Its obvious the only thing that matters to him at this point is money - and he's the only one who thinks he's worth $4+mil a yr.

Unless he comes down in price you can pretty much say saiyonara.

sorry for the spelling on that - but the points the same.

Agreed...should worry less about firing guns and more about firing fastballs...

Rotoworld just posted a blip on Urbina and it says the deal is unlikely!They were very disappointed to learn that Urbina is a lazy bastard who wants 4 million per year but has not touched a baseball since the World Series!

I was paraphrasing
