There was some speculation about that over on the minor league board this week. Unfortunately, Fields either replaces Pods, Crede, or Dye. Which of those three would you like to see in another uni? Nice problem to have. Plus we've got Sweeney as well.

If Crede refuses to sign long-term, then the Josh Fields Extravaganza will take over 3B in 2007 or 2008. Maybe we sign him to an arbitration year, or maybe we reach an impasse and trade him.

I hope that Joe would take into consideration the patience that we displayed with him at a time when he was an automatic out in our lineup. We stuck with him, he turned a corner, we got a ring. Hopefully, Crede is here for the next 5, 6, 7, 10 years, but with that snake as his agent, you never know. There almost certainly would not be a "hometown discount" in terms of the player's side of the negotiations, and in the end, I think that Joe will have to choose between Boras and us. Reinsdorf will give him a fair contract, and the ball will be in Joe's court.
