PAULLEBOWITZ'S ACTIVITY
 

PAULLEBOWITZ commented on David Ortiz deserves his contract extension
You truly don't know how to read. Then you twist what you're unable to comprehend by altering the context.

PAULLEBOWITZ commented on David Ortiz deserves his contract extension
That's a weak, ignorant response with zero analysis nor facts behind it. He had the fourth best OPS in all of baseball and won the World Series MVP at age 37 and you have him collapsing based on an arbitrary number like his age. Stop wasting my time.

PAULLEBOWITZ commented on David Ortiz deserves his contract extension
Likely to fade quickly based on what? Your comments are consistent. I'll give you that. They're all nonsensical and have no foundation whatsoever.

PAULLEBOWITZ commented on David Ortiz deserves his contract extension
You make reasonable points. I don't think any team would offer him a serious deal because, like Jeter with the Yankees, they'd know Ortiz wasn't leaving the Red Sox. Considering all the money they've wasted and that the issue... (see more)

PAULLEBOWITZ commented on David Ortiz deserves his contract extension
Either you skim read my postings, don't understand what you're reading or latch onto a single thing to make your snarky comments. Did you read what I wrote about the number of players the Red Sox paid far more money than they would have to pay... (see more)

PAULLEBOWITZ commented on Why the Yankees shouldn't trade Brett Gardner… yet
The only reason I don't think it'll degenerate to disaster levels is that they're all-in and will gut the system to save this season. It's a poor long-term strategy, but it should get them to 88+ wins this season. Cashman, if he truly... (see more)

PAULLEBOWITZ commented on Why the Yankees shouldn't trade Brett Gardner… yet
I can't cut Cashman a break when his farm system has gotten significantly worse since he was given control of it and he has the amount of money to spend he does. Every GM answers to ownership. The way Cashman runs the team now could be replicated... (see more)

David Ortiz deserves his contract extension
David Ortiz has been a Red Sox staple since 2003 and a major part of three World Series wins. Neither he nor the club wants him to spend a single day in another uniform. But that hasn’t prevented the sides from establishing battle lines...

Why the Yankees shouldn't trade Brett Gardner… yet
In spite of their maniacal spending spree, the Yankees still have significant holes to fill and a surplus of outfielders from which to trade. The obvious – and only – choice to deal is Brett Gardner. Still inexpensive for 2014 and with...

The Crumbling of the Media Wall

Rays Signing Balfour Demolishes Orioles' Injury Concerns
Had the Yankees, Dodgers or Red Sox signed Grant Balfour—teams with money to burn who were willing to take the risk on a player who reportedly had suspect medicals—then the Orioles could explain away backing out of their deal with the...

The Yankees, Tanaka, the Future and the Past
The post-signing euphoria is in full swing as Yankees fans and apologists have gone from lamenting a mediocre future to the annual predicting of a championship. With the addition of Masahiro Tanaka, the Yankees have a talented but still unpredictable...

A-Rod, 60 Minutes and the At All Costs Mentality
If you’ve yet to see the 60 Minutes piece from Sunday about Alex Rodriguez’s suspension from baseball, the link is here. This entire episode is surreal. The decision to uphold A-Rod’s suspension was expected. What’s odd,...

PAULLEBOWITZ commented on The A-Rod Suspension From All The Angles
I defer on the legal issues to people who are in the legal industry. The consensus agrees with you. I seriously doubt A-Rod will ever wear a Yankees uniform again. They might try to use some clauses in the contract to try and get out of paying him, but... (see more)
