Balester on Board

Just an early heads up that Collin Balester will be available via an online chat next Wednesday (Feb. 11) at noon. We'll post the URL closer to the event.

Balester is a nice pull, but I really want Mark Lerner and Stan Kasten on the hook.

Why, so they can ignore questions in person?

"But then, we don't know whether the Lerner family is offering Dunn much more than free eats at Ben's Chili Bowl."
Thom Loverro

Shows how little he knows, at least about Ben's.
(Only Bill Cosby, and now the First Family, eat free at Ben's. It's a rule.)

We've finally discovered something that me and RickFelt agree on 100%.

Austin Kearns can't be gone quick enough.

@CEJ:

Loverro's just envious - he only wishes the Lerner's would extend "free eats" to him at the Ben's inside the stadium.

Wow! The tone here certainly has gotten boorish. It has frequently been cynical and edgy in the past, but not usually mean without being funny.

Hard to imagine why Hill went forward with arbitration. He was 1-5 with a 5.83 ERA in 12 starts last year before hitting the disabled list. Even if he loses he won't make less than $500k and it seems unlikely he can successfully argue he was worth $775k - especially when the $500k could have been guaranteed and the $775 will not be. Either he was given poor advice or he made a poor decision.

I hope he has a successful year in 2009 and makes a mint next year, but based on record to date? Perez will only make $850k if he wins a spot and he made 30 starts last year with a 4.45 era.

@bisquit

IMO, Hill gets the club offer, then either gets 'Pattersoned' at the end of ST, or placed on the 60DL. Odalis gets the roster spot, setting up a L-R-L-R-L (Olsen-Cabrera-Lannan-Balester-Perez) rotation to start the season.
