I thought Cleveland already expressed interest earlier this year and San Francisco told us no.

He's washed up and a clubhouse problem.
No thanks

Looks like the guy they got would be our equivalent of Mastny.
For that price - no.

Isn't one Roberto Hernandez enough?

If we would have agreed to pay the remainder of Benitez' salary, I'm willing to bet that Oldberto might have been enough. We might have had to pay some of his salary too, but it would have been worth it, if for no other reason than addition by subtraction.

The San Francisco and Sacramento papers are saying good riddance, he was considered unpopular with his teammates. He blamed them for lack of run support, and had a tendency to have body language which would make you uncomfortable if you were on the field with him.

I'll take "fear of the unknown" over Benitez.
