He had no other offers on the table when he signed with the Indians. Just like the stiff Germano.
But if it helps your headache to win this one, go ahead.
People want stats, they get stats, they want proof of offers, they get proof of offers, yet they're so hell bent on hating that they can't let it go. That's cool. You're haters. You can't see past it.
I don't give a shit if Chad Durbin pitches for this team. If Chad Durbin walked into my house right now and shat on the floor I wouldn't know who he was. After the initial shock I'd demand an answer or two and to see his ID before I shot but initially I wouldn't know who it was.
I do know he does a mediocre to decent job of getting out major league hitters. The Indians play a major league schedule. Therefore I'm fine with Chad Durbin on the roster while three guys closer to 30 than 20 bide their time and hope to one day be the next Chad Durbin.
And if Chad Durbin's mediocre major league ass gets waived after a spate of bad outings and one of the precocious kids who could have been doctors by now get a chance then Bully for them and so long to Chip Drebbin.
Alright. This has been an exciting evening and the party got a little out of control when that condescending short busser had to press his bet. But you know, doing what I do for a living there comes a time in a negotiation when you're supposed to concede a little something so that your adversary (and not in a real life sense Pup, you know that) can walk away with a little bit of dignity.
So let it be known that I have no affinity for Chad Durbin. He's not even close to the pitching equivalent of Jamey Carroll so if you guys wanna dnosco it and call for someone's head over giving a major league pitcher $800k while the Golden Girls go wanting and waiting their turn in Columbus I will not tell you how petty and ridiculous you sound.
