Zito is God wrote:I am a big Kendall supporter. That biend said bieng an Oakland fan I do NOT want this deal done because of money purposes. Unless the Pirates pick up a ton of his salary. As far as I remmember Beane will be overpaying as it is and he needs that money for the big three. My guess is that (very very sadly) Zito is gone if he doesn't pick it up this season, but Hudson and Mulder both need to be resigned. For that to be done he needs to play cheap guys at the positions which he has been doing (excluding Chavez) for the most part, this is just throwing off the gameplan.
Yeah, isnt the Moneyball philosophy to get cheap young guys with lost of upside? And isnt Kendall an expensive old guy who will only get worse with time? Seems like a bad move money-wise to me.
