    Uggla's deal was restructured so we could sign Johnson. We now have Uggla through 2018 but at a lower AAV.

    This is why I'm nervous about Wren.

    I mean, you don't even know what the details are. If it's 3 years, say, 20-22 mil, is it that bad? He's solid and it's one less hole to fill moving forward, and it's a short time-frame.

    I guess the front office believes that the 3b market sucks, our minor league options suck, and we've got **** to trade. Also, Wren has a drinking problem.

    That's a relatively decent analysis. Our only 3B option worth a damn in the minors is Peraza who's got at least 1 year away, maybe 2. Then we can pawn off Johnson or use him as designated bat on the bench. We don't know the value yet.

    If we are talking about 5 million a year then I'm ok with it. I don't see how Wren gives him much more than that.
    Warm feelings guy!

    He's a support level player at best and we've got other needs. Unless there is money around that we don't know about, the budget is getting awfully tight. It is started to resemble what he did in Baltimore.

    Silly argument. When Uggs and BJ were given their deals they had earned it through the market.

    Uggla was traded for and then eventually was given an extension. What market what there for him?

    We gave Uggla an extension as part of the trade.

    The budget isnt tight.

    The new ballpark gives Wren more money to work with.

    That's debatable. We will be spending the next decade and a half paying off the stadium. So there is a net loss.

    InWren's defense he really didn't have much time to do anything in Baltimore. He made mistakes there for sure. But Wren didn't have a long time in Baltimore. Angelos is a grade A twat.
