I know Foppert had the TJ done but he's still a high-end arm and should have fetched a lot more than Randy Winn.
He hasn't been the same high end arm since 2003 when he was hurt. He really has no control now and sits right around 90, not mid 90's where he used to.
I still doesn't make much sense for the Giants, but Fopperts value right now was/is pretty low.
I guess that's to be expected after the surgery. I just figured they could get a lot more than Winn, whether Foppert's not the same as he once was or not.
I agree, but have the Giants received anything of good value for any of their young arms? IMO, none of them have been for good value.
Nope. That's twice now in the last few months that Sabean's been picked clean.
I don't recall seeing his name mentioned anywhere in the top 5 GM's thread...now I'm seeing why
