2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat)I've been dying to read what you have to say about the Mark Ellis signing. Good deal for the A's? Is he worth the risk? What is his value given his hitting, defense, age and injury history?
(Scott the Stathead from NY, NY)
Lamentably, the A's were one of two teams I didn't get to in the article that's about to be published, but I expect to comment on their moves (Joe Dillon is free!) and the Blue Jays' after we wrap up here. But to be terse (by my standards), the word that sums up my feelings on keeping Ellis is 'resigned' (as opposed to 're-signed'). OK, we kept him, and in the long and unhappy history of second base in A's history, Ellis is sort of our generation's Dick Green, a nifty player, but not a great one. For that money, it's not a great deal, and given that it's spread out evenly, this isn't even a situation like Terrence Long's contract, where we can always hope Billy gets somebody else to pick up the heavy back end of the tab. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of DeJesus going to the Yankees? He's probably relatively cheap, they can play Nady in RF, Damon in LF, Matsui at DH, and let Austin Jackson spend more time in the minors. Seems like a great stopgap solution to me.
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
Just judging from the number of calls to draft/steal/acquire David DeJesus, there seems to be a lot of sentiment in favor of getting him in this chat room, but I guess like you I wonder if this doesn't just reproduce the problem with getting Damon in the first place--if the guy can't really help you as a center fielder, he's going to have to do some extraordinary hitting to help you otherwise. The talk of moving Damon to first is interesting, however... with DeJesus, sure, it would be a patch, but I think Jackson's the eventual answer, and if they stick with Melky and Brett Turner in the meantime, that beats doing something like repeating the exercise of giving Terrence Long a last stop.
