Okay I'm playing Walter for a second so bear with me. This is going to sound hair-brained and as a matter of fact it is. But I hate waiting for trades and stuff so I try to come up with crazy things that might (or not) work. Feel free to criticize me!
- Trade Duncan for Erving Santana of the Angels. (Dunc could play 1b or DH)
- Trade Rick Ankiel (or some other schmo) and Juan Encarnacion for Jeff Francis of the Rockies.
Yeah that's right ladies and gentlemen! A group of young kids led by their wise master CARP! BRILLIANT! Oh no some of you say! Balderdash screams others! Wainers needs to be in the pen! Well my pen is the best pen in the entire world!
You remember that guy that used to close for us? What was his name? Isri..Isring...? Oh yeah that guy! Isringhausen! Maybe he could be our closer! I mean hell we're paying him to do that. Take Wainers out, insert Narvie, close by committee until Izzy gets back! BRILLIANT!
J-Rod or Schumacher or my mother
Triple A - Memphis
Now really was that so hard? I might have slipped that Soriano guy in there but with all the cash I just saved us, it's really not unrealistic. Remember before you hammer my rotation that my average age is 26 yrs old. That's the 90's braves right there folks. Except we have David "they call me the pitcher whisperer" Duncan.
Okay I ran out of steam there. Please plug any holes in my leaky boat. Or as my math teacher used to say. "Think outside the box."
(I just wanted this diary to be kinda like a crazy trade diary. What crazy thing could you come up with?)
