Roberto Petagine Era Ends In Boston
Mariners sign Petagine to minor-league contract: "The Mariners have signed free-agent first baseman Roberto Petagine to a minor-league contract. Petagine, 34, was with Boston last year, hitting .281 with 9 RBI with the Red Sox and .327-20-69 at Class AAA Pawtucket. "
Can't understand this one! Let's face it. Kevin Millar was sent packing for budgetary reasons. His numbers, while not earth shaterring and maybe even declining a smidge, were nevertheless respectable and his presence in the clubhouse invaluable. So while Toronto was adding big boppers and the SOX missed out signing a few others, who did they get to solve the problem? The Greek God of Walks and, oh yeah, J.T. Snow, a guy with much poorer numbers than Millar and someone who still carries a very healthy price tag, while we already had "in house" a guy who hits .300 and probably 20-25 homers a year... something he's done not just once but repeatedly for the past four years ... AND at a price we in the stands can afford. So why let Petagine go without ever even giving him a chance? I guess we fans who pay the player's salaries simply better hope that Youkalis and Snow have incredible years and that Snow's glove is worth the several million dollar difference between his and Petagine's price tags!
