Probably know Bloom is desperate and in the realm of "why not ask"?Solid deal; they needed a lefty masher and he certainly qualifies, although he’s certainly at the age where further decline is expected, but the dollars seem reasonable. Hopefully he’s competent at first base.
Opt out is weird, maybe it’s to protect the player who may not be 100% convinced in direction of team? Total speculation.
Still plenty of time to make more impact moves. But yeah, Turner and Yoshida should both lengthen the lineup considerably over JDM and JBJ/Pham.I mean, does this really change the outlook of the team? It's nice we added a player, but I'd hardly call this an impact move. It's fine.
What if Bloom’s strategy is to add a collection of good players rather than one impact move? Could that be a path toward fielding a playoff team?I mean, does this really change the outlook of the team? It's nice we added a player, but I'd hardly call this an impact move. It's fine. I'd have the same reaction if they brought JD back.
