Useful Idiot Posted December 10, 2022 Share Posted December 10, 2022 (edited) So, the winter meetings have come and gone, and the one thing our wonderkind managed to pull off was to dump a floundering major league pitcher, claimed by some to at last be sorting himself out, for two nobodies. BUT UNDER THE COVER STORY that we were "reshaping our offensive identity". What is that supposed to mean? Is that Harrisspeak for "one of the players was not a pitcher"? What are Malloy's accomplishments that might make him worthy of the role of defining an offensive identity? Career .285 average with 22 HR over 2 seasons, only one of which was above AA level (shudder) Is there some super secret advanced metric that only the propellerheads are capable of fully appreciating? 😇 Or is it more likely a priority of being young and dumb, with a full compliment of options? (winner winner) Perhaps most depressing to have come out of the non-progress attained at the meetings, is the new mantra that "a new culture" is in the making (woo hoo). I think we all can appreciate what that means. Budget is king and anybody not fine with that is out. Painful to contemplate that the Avila era might one day be looked back upon as "the good old days"...lmao!
