FA’s to avoid

Nick Swisher is overrated — a below average defender who feasts on bad pitching. He has only 25 hits in 150 postseason AB’s, good for a .167 BA and .584 OPS. And he’s annoying. Very, very annoying.

Angel Pagan is a bit more serviceable, an excellent fourth OF masquerading as a starter. He doesn’t get on base enough, turns 32 in July and is horrible defensively. I can live with that in LF, but not in center.

  1. I wouldn’t mind picking up Ichiro for a couple of years, should Bourn leave. Put him in right, move Heyward to center. Still need somebody to play left though.

  2. GM said no way in hell Heyward is playing center everday, would diminish his value.

  3. Jay Hey in CF ain’t happening.

  4. If we sign Swisher I’m buying an Arsenal kit and completely switching my sports loyalties to the Premier League.

    Angel Pagan seems to be the free agent du jour that a lot of people are talking about now that it’s pretty much certain that Bourn is heading elsewhere. I really want him to sign with the Braves just for the endless entertainment of listening to rednecks try to pronounce his name.

    Now, this I’m on board with.

  6. I’ve suggested Ichiro for left field.
