We took a chance.
It pitches erratically every five days.
Look, I'm fine with taking chances. To me, Hanley's not the one to take a chance on. Again, nobody has been able to give me any reason to believe that he'd come here and play like he cared. If he was manageable in the clubhouse when times were tough and wouldn't demand a trade the second things went south, sure, try to acquire Hanley in hopes that he gets back to his old self.
Why that would happen with a change of leagues, I don't know.
I'd much rather go after somebody who may be struggling, but is going to play hard regardless of where he's playing. Wanting to play and having the work ethic to play are two big factors when you're talking about a guy who had tons of previous success and has fallen off the map. I don't see him being that guy in Cleveland.
That's my point. Which pup can't seem to grasp.
I grasp your point just fine. Just think it is a losing mentality.
If nobody wants to play here, then the only way to acquire talent is trades. If he doesn't work out, what have you lost? Profit $?
