Nobody will trade for him, let's sell him to the Japanese.


As The Newark Star-Ledger reported yesterday, the Mets are close to selling outfielder Benny Agbayani to the Yomiuri Giants in Japan. The Giants are expected to pay between $1 million and $2 million for Agbayani, a Bobby Valentine favorite who hit .277 this season.

You may be on to something here. You know a few yen could turn Reinsy's head.

What's the yen to dollar conversion rate these days?

I would be willing to chip in for a fund to bribe Japan to take him.

What an insult to the Japanese. Implying that they'd actually want that loser Clayton.

Royce is older than Bobby Hill, so I'm sure the Cubs would love to have him.

LMAO! That Clayton pic is too good. I'll have to figure out how to do all that here. I could have some fun with that.

I'm not a fan of Valentine at ss either. What a hack! I wouldn't mind seeing him at 2b though where he belongs. Maybe Ray's spaced out stupid ass could be good trade bait for a good starting pitcher in a packaged deal.

I'd like to see Rey Ordonez at ss.

I can't see the Sox trade Ray (not yet...). I know he's headstrong about hitting for power, but doesn't he get it? If you don't think about the power numbers, they'll come anyway.

Run Ray, Run!!!Run Ray, Run!!!

Trade/sell Clayton, and let Manos be the SS...yes, it contradicts for what I said this fall, but what the hell do I know?

11-15-2001, 02:28 PM
I wouldn't mind them trading Durham, if the return value was right... Of course, that leaves us without a leadoff hitter at all. If you recall, Valentin wasn't very good at the leadoff spot...

:slowswing

I've got great speed!!!

:hurt

I get on base a lot...

:versatile

I'm an ideal leadoff hitter! I've got great speed, and I can play other positions!

The only guy who may get the business more is Caballo (Josh Paul doesn't count. We're talking about major league players). Now ripping on Royce can get you in trouble. The defenders of The Choice are quite vocal.

You may be right. I must have just been thinking in the Clayton/Valentin context. That's when it can get ugly.

Mr.Clayton the original Bobblehead ! The guy is a test tube baby .
his secong -half batting does not make up for his first -half minor league hitting . If im correct this was his best year batting wise , dont count on seeing it again , i dont . At least i wouldn't want to sit thru another .125 to .200 batting preformance . Waste him ! I'd rather see Tony G. there full time . So long as he doen't bat on National tv ! lol !

THAT, daver, is an opinion. The facts are royce clayton is a below average starting SS. He is not horrible and he is not to blame for the sox recent troubles. Would i rather have a better SS? of course.....

I don't think Royce is bad. I don't think he's horrible. I don't think he's the answer for any team, although I'd rather see him at SS then Valentine , and that's not saying much. I also think he's a dick. Those are clearly my thoughts. I follow nobody.

Bum, nice pic and all for the sig, but it's kinda big (file size). Those kind of things are rough on bandwidth for good ole Mr. West. You should probably look into shrinking it down a bit or finding something else a bit smaller.

I would shrink it but I would have to save it on my server. It is easier for West, if he has a problem with it. Don't go all Daver on me Kempers with those damn smiley's.
