A 103 wRC+ isn't exactly ideal for a poor defensive 3B or a 1B

And that's certainly possible.

And apparently Paypal limited my account and needs a photo ID and proof of address? Ugh...

I said no, John, but I'll jump on now and donate the $10 - I certainly owe you at least that.

That doesn't make it any less ridiculous in my opinion. We have ONE side and people are jumping all over this. It's a lot of very intelligent people looking not so intelligent right now.

He's walked at a 9.3 and 8.4% clip the last two months. If he can do that and keep his Ks in the low 20s as they are now, that's incredible, all things considered...

Beltre through his first 4 years was worth 1.6 defensive runs saved per year over Castro.

I'm not sure. Why do some posters decide to take offense to a very common use of the English language?

Also, it is not the Astros fault if Aiken had Close as an agent to negotiate for him.

There is a 0.00001% chance he can be declared a FA. There were no clear rules broken by the Astros that would give Aiken the opportunity to declare for FA.
