I don't see what your beef is with this signing of Wade Miller. The guy is not freakin Randy Johnson.. ANY TEAM COULD HAVE HAD HIM, he didn't sign for 4 years 40 million dollars, he signed 1 year 1.5 Million...That back-up first basemen salary there....here's a quote from the articleThey didn't throw there checkbook around so don't hate the player, hate the game"The Red Sox were right on it from the beginning," Garber said. "They flew him to town and made him feel welcome. That's what Theo Epstein does. He makes players feel wanted, and they want to come here."wrveres wrote:(I will be the first to admit that 1.5 million is a steal)
don't get me wrong, kudos to Theo for jumping all over it. Its a situation were nobody knows what is going to happen with Wade, and Theo took the gamble. Props to him. I mean its not like any other team can just throw a million five at a player that they have absolutely no idea if they can even pitch, so lets just say I hope that Wade isn't able to participate this season, I am sick of the rich getting richer at the expense of others, and the Sox are culprit number one.
Aren't you a hardcore capitalist? Doesn't "the rich getting richer" define what you believe in? Is it hard to face reality when it's in a microcosm that is so easily analyzed?
Just kidding I like capitalism too but it makes for boring baseball so I think it should be changed. Don't know why I was off on a tangent there
