Do the Yankees now want there $ money back from the Mets for Gonzalez German ?

Reese Kaplan said...

Can we sell the Erik Goeddel? Cesar Puello? Ruben Tejada? Curtis Granderson?

Thomas Brennan said...

You need to prioritize, Reese!

1) RUBEN TEJADA
2-4) TAKE YOUR PICK

Gonzalez Germen is being sought after by 28 other teams. Problem is, they are all in Korea. North Korea.

Maybe we could send him there with a tainted baseball and have him hand it from his glove hand to Kim Jong-Un to throw out the first pitch. They could make a movie about that...

The name of the movie can be "The Interview: Hey, I'm Howie Rose"

People laughed at Sandy for selling him for cash considerations, but hey, who wouldn't take $250k for a player you had to get rid of anyway. Not quite the Byrd deal, but msube one extra international signing.

What Joe F said!

Don't knock Goeddel too much Reese.

He always posted a high enough K/9 (well above 8.0/9 for his minor league career) to show that he has a somewhat live arm - he just can't control it.

He at least has the plus fastball to maybe be a mid-inning reliever - he just needs to learn to breath through his eye lids.

I'm a bit of a numbers guy and his are fairly ugly. His 1.406 WHIP is what really stands out (in a bad way) while his career 4.01 minor league ERA doesn't scream future big league player. I watched him a few times last year here in El Paso and was not impressed with what I saw. Now if you asked me about the kind of arm Vic Black had here and how me made batters look silly...

My brother has a way of cutting to the point. I brought up his name last year after a game he pitched. "He sux." Verdict was in. He may well be right. We all hope a guy like him could be the next Familia...few are.

Germen has been plagued by an inability (fear of?) throwing STRIKE ONE. He has a generally Live arm.... hense the "interest" by other teams.
