DateQuestionAnswer
2005-12-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Will I regret signing Matt Morris?
(Brian Sabean from SF)
No doubt about it--that's the biggest slam dunk of the off-season. Morris' strikeout rate has declined for 4 straight seasons. PECOTA may start weeping when it spits out Morris' three-year projection.

Makes you wonder what would have happened if the Giants hadn't been so eager to sacrifice first-round draft picks (on purpose) while signing drek like Michael Tucker. A few well-placed picks and they may have had the young talent to avoid throwing $27 million down the drain for a mediocrity like Morris. (Jonah Keri)
