Are you listening? Listen, you have a choice to make. Are you going to offer arbitration to Ryan Theriot? I know that he’s a “gritty player” and a good defender at 2B, but he’s probably going to cost $3.4 to $4.5 mil. Forget about it! Let him go. We got Lilly. You don’t have to justify Theriot. See, here’s the deal. Ivan DeJesus, Jr. (IDJ2) is ready. Why didn’t you give him a callup in September? Don’t answer that, because if you are truthful, you will have to admit to being a dumbass. So, never mind. Look, IDJ2 is ready (did I mention that?).
After breaking his leg (an event to which I was a 20 ft away witness) in 2009, he came back and hit .296 at AAA in 2010, and then proceeded to hit .321 in the AFL with a .411 OB% while OPSing .847 (Andrew Lambo OPSed .787 in the same league and Sands OPSed .904 – You still excited about Lambo?).
IDJ2 is ready. Forget about competition at 2B next year. Give him the job. You won’t regret it!
Spend on something else. Preferably someone who an hit HR.
