Beating a Dead Horse

You know WSBGMs loves to beat a dead horse. Of course, a horse corpse! Anyway, The following two players are first basemen that played for the Phillies in 2011. Player A is still with the Phils, while Player B unfortunately is not. The following stats are from 2012-2014.

Player A:
193 G, 84 R, 38 DBL, 32 HR, 123 RBI, .243/.752, -0.8 WAR, $65M

Player B:
274 G, 146 R, 52 DBL, 61 HR, 179 RBI, .274/.911, 6.5 WAR, $6.4M

2012 was the season the Ryan Howard (Player A) was set to hit free agency, before that schmuck Ruin Tomorrow Jr. inked him to a 5 YR/$125M extension. Meanwhile, Brandon Moss (Player B) went hitless in 6 at bats for the Phillies in 2011, thus he was released. Moss has went onto become a powerhouse in Oakland, while Howard struggles in every facet of his game. Oh hindsight, ain't it fun?!

Stupid bullpen.

Hey guys, look on the bright side! This team only needs a few things to contend!

-Two new Staters
-6 new Relivers
-A New First Baseman
-A New Leftfielder
-A New Centerfielder
-Two new backup OFs
-A backup Shortstop/3B
-Several Consecutive Good Drafts
-$100 million in spending over the luxury cap

See, easy fix! I have no doubt this Front Office can fix the problem in no time!

Also, I feel so bad for Utley, Rollins, Chooch, and Byrd. They're trying so hard to keep the ship from capsizing. Hats off to them.

GM-Carson said...

Morak, love your post. That might be a weekend post. Hope you'recool with pplagiarizing.

Morak99 said...

Go for it, glad you enjoyed.

Two Words that should quiet you GM-Carson.

Prince Fielder.

GM-Carson said...

What about Prince Fielder? Just because another GM gave some tubby first baseman a horrible contract longer than Howard's, does not mean Amaro should be off the hook.

Holy poop on a popsicle, the Phillies suck!

Morak99 said...

Following them feels like a chore.

By the time Morak99's wish list is filled, the rest of the roster will have retired
