Glaus to AZ

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby thomasps3 » Thu Dec 09, 2004 11:50 am

Right now, at 7:49 AZ time, Scott Boras is drooling in his sleep to have found out that Glaus got an average of $11M/year. Beltre will now command $13-$14 million for at least 4 years, and I am going to argue that this also influences Beltran. He'll now demand a minimum of $15M a year, and that $13M offer he has received from Houston is now nothing more than a pile of dog poo. I can't believe that AZ did this. I don't ever want to hear that organiuzation freakin' complaining about not being able to field a competitive team because of salaries. They simply are acting like Steinbrenner without the YES network to back them up. Maybe the owners discovered oil underneath the Bank One ballpark and the bumblin crude will finance this RIDICULOUS contract!

:-t :-t :-t to AZ ownership/GM!!!

Comments like that could prove to be very painful. I do not think RJ is going anywhere (at least until the July deadline). The D'backs are backed into a corner and can't get out and the Yanks are not buying.


Rotoworld:
An NL source told Newsday that Randy Johnson has informed Arizona he will only waive his no-trade clause to go the Yankees.
It's becoming more likely that Arizona will just keep Johnson, but it would be a surprise if the Diamondbacks and Yankees don't have another round or two of talks before the start of spring training. Dec. 9 - 5:13 am et

I actually wish he'd sign as the yankees 2b...man..would I love that.

Glaus hit the jackpot financially but he deserves it if he's willing to play in that wasteland that is THE DIAMONDBACKS.


edit: better?

Wasteland? Please don't take offense here but I've been to games at most of the ballparks in the majors, including yankee stadium and The Bob. Frankly there's NO comparison as to which was the the more enjoyable venue to watch a game or to bring a family. Yankee stadium has it's history and tradition sure, but to hear someone who attends games at that seething rathole in the bronx, refer to Bank One as a 'wasteland' is offensive.

I wasn't talking about the stadium itself. I was talking about Arizona and their franchise as a whole. Sorry you misinterpreted it.
