    Default If no upgrade via trade - Gorky's & Hague

    If teams are trying to totally milk us for all we got & we don't squire an upgrade at 1b or rf then I think we should just bring up Gorky's & Hague. Both play very good defense & Paul & jones kill us in the OF. We won a lot of games watching young bucks taking turns coming up big, by playing really solid defense, and by scratching out runs with speed on the basepaths. F it. Roll the dice.

    I am fed up with Xavier Paul. What was that last night? The chump makes the wrong turn toward second base and then stands there and waits to be tagged instead trying to escape the rundown. Hurdle benched Cedeno and Cutch earlier in the year for failing to run to first. This was far worse, IMO. Hurdle should have yanked him right there. Then, later in the game, Paul is on second with two outs. Fly ball to right field and.... Paul stands on second waiting to tag up! Bone head didn't know there were two outs.

    His defense is overrated. He's a punch & judy hitter and horrible as a pinch hitter. The "niche" he fills is duplicated by Presley. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets DFA'd if we bring in Willingham etc.

    Xavier Paul your days are numbered....

    On Gorkdys and Hague..

    I don't thin Gorkys is what this team needs right now. He a singles hitter with no power. Hague... meh...

    I really like the rumors of Jason Kubel and Casey Kotchman. Kubel would be a fantastic acquisition but I doubt it happens.

    What this team needs is a healthy Alex Presley in LF. Josh Willingham (Kubel would be better) in RF and Kotchman at 1B.

    Variation on Your Post

    Addition by subtraction
    . "Dump Overpaid" and bring up Hague and then do Gorkys (or bring up[ Marte), if you cosnider Paul a weakness (I don't).
