Junk, Junk, Junk
Juan Encarnacion. Well, at least that last name is fun to say. Signing him at $15M for three years seems kind of stupid. We can get someone with that posts a .750 OPS from our bench for much cheaper. Between Rodriguez and Taguchi the corner outfield would have been AT LEAST at the level it will be if Bigbie (who apparently is going to be a .300/30HR/100+RBI guy according to some unquestioning fans) and Encarnacion start in the corner spots. I don't want to get my blood pressure up thinking about the Junior Spivey possibility. I hope Colorado comes through and offers him some stupid contract before we add another junk second baseman to our rapidly expanding collection.
