What would the Padres look like if they could throw around 120.00 million a year.
1B - Helton @ 15 Million per - We did draft the fool in 92, we just couldn't afford him.
2B - Loretta @ 2.5 Million per - .
SS - K Greene @ 300,000 - Yes, we still develop our own.
3B - S Burroughs @ 1.5 Million - Its arbitration time soon.
RF - B Giles @ 9 Million - We did trade for the guy.
CF - S Finley @ 7 Million - Did I mention loyalty
LF - G Jenkins @ 8 Million - Another drafted stud
C - Hernandez @ 2.3 million - We stole this one off one of those lower market teams
SP - Jake Peavy - 2.3 Million - arbitration is coming.
SP - Matt Clement - 6.5 Million - Traded away becasue we couldn't keep him.
SP - David Wells - 5.5 Million - Even his wife would have shut up if we had enough cash.
SP - Kevin Brown - 15 Million - well with a 120 million payroll we to could of tossed in airplane rides to Georgia too.
SP - Adam Eaton - 2.6 million - Its his year, just watch.
SU - Otsuka - 0.8 Mil
CL - Hoffman - 7 Mill
Dream on I guess ... I still gotta finish the pen but up to now, I have only spent roughly 85 Million. I still have 35 million dollars to blow. This is disgusting ..
* I'll ship Eaton to Arizona for Randy Johnson and assume his whole contract. Theres 13 Million.
* I can throw 1.5 million at Wade Miller, don't know if he can pitch or not, but ya know, 'Just in case' ..
* Oh wow... This puts me into the Beltran Sweepstakes too, looks like Jenkins goes to the bench. Better yet, I'll trade Giles. He stunk last season, his production was way down. Actually, the more I think about it, Brian Giles is a piece of chit who can't perform in pressure situations and he has to go. Just trade his ass. So minus Giles, plus Beltran thats another 7 Million per ..
and that leaves me with roughly 15 millon for my pen and bench..
Sickening ... Just sickening ..
I am TRYING to spend 120.00 million and I am having difficulty.
and I have at my count, 4 players making 14 million or more, and still can't spend 120 mill.
what a joke it must be living in La La land ..
when does real baseball start?
You're delusional.... and a republican, right? If they don't pay for their players they don't deserve them. Right? If they can't pick their talent, they don't deserve it. But they're paying Brian Giles $14M instead of $700K for Ollie Perez and Jason Bay combined, right?
I won't even begin to make me name the players drafted by the Jays who are signed for multimillion dollar contracts for other teams. Jeff Kent, Shawn Green, and Carlos Delgado to name a few. Thank God we still have Halladay and Wells... for now.
