Ned Acquire Angel Berroa

瞧?Ned Colletti言出必行,不懂裝死騙人,才剛發表說他在找PVL (proven veteran losers)內野替代Furcal休兵人選,馬上就有消息他盤來在Royals的Angel Berroa,此人何許人也?即當年擊敗乍至美帝,被嘲諷只會打滾地球的"ground-zilla" Hediki Matsui,得到2003年新人王的傢伙,然而之後Matsui越打越好,成為一個優秀的MLB等級外野手(雖然守備不佳,近年又苦於受傷),而Berroa則每下遇況,只猛了新人年一年,2007年徹底失去MLB地位,今年遭下放在Royals的AAA球隊Omaha Royals (即剛被解約的Tsao待的那隊)出賽,長打還能看,作一個替補的備用人選 "只要" 4M的價錢,2008年 3.5M (4.75M,交易過來後Dodgers尚得付3.5M)、 2009年 5.5M club option或 0.5M buyout (當然是選後者,他不值5.5M那價錢)。 貼一部分錢。

各LA媒體,包括Daily News的Tony Jackson、LAT的Dylan Hernandez、PE的Kevin Pearson都報導說Royals會付大部份Berroa的薪水支票,顯然某官網記者大概在記者會上睡著了?

被交易過去的則是Juan Rivera,大概還不值一顆球的價錢。

簡單來說又是個Ned Colletti幫人家付垃圾費 撿垃圾的交易。希望Berroa行行好,表現一下,只要表現的比Esteban "Blow-aiza" 好就可以了。

受影響最主要的人選當然是Chin-Lung Hu,他應該下AAA練球去,而另兩個career minor leaguers (Luis Maza、Terry Tiffee)的未來並不重要,他們上來只是證明他們兩人和Mike Edwards (2005年的類似版本,替代 Cesar "Can't Hit" Izturis,成為Jim Tracy愛用人選,2006年又被Tracy找去Pirates丟臉)相當,都是垃圾。

另外因為得挪個40人名單給Berroa,目前還不曉得會把誰處理掉。

目前Dodgers在40人裡的冗員有:
Gary Bennett
得了傳球失憶症,說最近復健的不錯,然而他和一只捕手手套的差別不大。
Luis Maza、Terry Tiffee
career minor leaguers,故障也不會讓人傷心的可憐傢伙 (OPS+ 47、 74)。
Mark Sweeney
"Colletti lovers" 之一,去年被交易過來後就交出廢物般的成績 (OPS+ 53),因ex-Giants愛將關係續約成為表訂今年主力代打,2008 Jun5時 OPS+ 6,個位數,你沒看錯。

If we look at the ROY winners.... well... Berroa might just be the worst of them all?

Not only has he had a bad career...

His award "winning" year wasn't that good either.... it was more like.... we have to give the award to someone.

Cheers,

Wilson

Well, at least a SS with 17HRs was not that bad at that time. In fact, that was his career year. But with poor plate dicipline, he declined very quickly in the majors.

The part I don't understand is....

Why did we sign him when Frucal will be back in less than a week?

I don't get it...

Cheers,

Wilson

to Wilson:
I'll go with dufflin for the Furcal mystery. You all know how good are the Dodgers' medical staff.

And congrates to Andy who finally got to the right place where he belongs.
